Our journey kicks off early in the evening, so you can catch the magnificent coloring of the sky. You will be picked up from your accommodation by your driver and ride along the Athens Riviera in a luxurious modern vehicle in comfort. You will get to soak up the scenic seaside views of the Athens Riviera on your way to Cape Sounio.

As soon as you reach Cape Sounio, you will get to gaze over the Doric-column Temple of Poseidon settled on the top of a craggy coast hill, overlooking the blue hues of the Saronic Gulf and the Aegean Sea; follow the clues of Lord Byron and meander around the same place where King Aegeus led the days of his life. There, you will also have free time to explore the region at your own pace with an audio guide to let you in on all the vital information.

Your romantic adventure will end with the driver transporting you back to your accommodation. This tour will fill your mind and heart with striking images, fond memories, and valuable insight into Greek history and culture.

Trip Advisor
My friend and I wanted to do a last minute trip to Sounio and the Temple of Poseidon before we left the next day back to Los Angeles. Greeking.me was able to book us an amazing private tour down the coast to the temple. It was perfect timing to catch the sun setting. Everything was perfect! Thank you!

We booked four tours with Greeking.me [Night tour, Foodies, Acropolis and Cape Sounion]. All four guides were super,professional, knowledgeable, interesting and fun. Nikos, the owner of Greeking.me, is quick to respond and eager to help you have an unforgettable visit to Athens.

We were a group of 10, who booked 2 one day tours to get an introduction to Greece and Athens. We couldn't have been happier. First, Anna and Nikos, spent a considerable amount of time helping me develop an itinerary that would give us a good balance of the "must see" sites with a taste of what life is like for local Athenians. The end result was enjoyable, comprehensive and very reasonably priced.
What a great time we had in Greece! I wanted to take a moment to thank you very much for how easy it was to book our 2 trips with you. Both of them were fantastic! Our driver Andrew, was amazing. He was kind, polite, and very thoughtful. Although he wasn’t a tour guide, he was able to answer some of our general questions about the country, etc. The trip to Sounio was a repeat of Delphi, wonderful weather, wonderful drive through the countryside and a great destination to explore. Andrew once a gain was fantastic. He is a wonderful driver and a great representative of Greeking Me.
