A must do if you’re visiting Athens. This was such a great excursion out of the city. The drive was scenic. The bud was comfortable and the guide was super knowledgeable on mythology and history! The temple was stunning and the sunset was one of the best on my whole trip! Highly recommend. The meet up point was next to a few places to grab a snack before hand and such a close walk from my hotel! Check in was super easy and the whole experience was so easy going. Loved it!!

Very unexpectedly for us, the meeting time was postponed an hour and a half earlier, and in order to be in time for the tour, we ourselves had to take a taxi for additional money to the company's office in the center of Athens. We were very limited in time and were afraid to be late because the money would be lost. The tour is interesting, the bus is very comfortable and clean

Admittedly, the journey is a bit long. Yet the driver did not drag, it's just that there are 70km to go. But it's worth it and the coastal road is pleasant. On the bus, the guide took the opportunity to explain a lot of things to us (whether about mythology or the Athenian suburbs). We stayed there for an hour (but like all excursions planned at this time of day): just enough time to listen to the visit and take pictures at sunset. On the way back, they also asked us if we wanted to be dropped off at the same place. The guide was available and spoke regularly.
