Fabulous experience! I recommend it to everyone who goes to Athens. Our guide spoke Spanish and English and spoke non-stop for 10 hours. The tour is super organized and you never get bored. First of all we go to the Acropolis, then highlights of the city, museum of the acropolis, typical lunch in a restaurant, and in the afternoon visit to the temple of Poseidon in Cape sounion. Fabulous day thanks to all of it

It was an amazing day tour. Great information and good insight to local traditions. Our tour guide pointed out and drove to multiple locations around Athens, and Corinth. We had a group of six and had plenty of comfort during the drives. The tickets to enter are not included but only a few stops require to pay access fee. Great day all together, big thanks to Odysseus our guide!

Our guide was a nice guide with a lot of knowledge about the mythology of Athens and the surrounding area. We have seen all the sights and were actually short of time because we lingered too long at the Acropolis.

Great tour with lot of history. Very knowledgeable guides, everything well organized. Cap Sounion is 1.5 hours by bus so it is questionable if it is worth spending the time.
