    1. Athens: Temple of Poseidon and Cape Sounion Sunset Tour

    After traveling for a few kilometers through the South Coast and the Athenian Riviera, you will be bedazzled by the famous landscapes which surround Sounion. Sounion (or Sunium) was an important ancient Greek religious sanctuary dedicated to the gods Poseidon and Athena. Spectacularly located on a promontory in southern Attica, the site is dominated by the temple of Poseidon perched 70 meters above the sea on the cliff edge.

    This experience was amazing! The communication was good across the board. We were directed via phone call to our driver from the port so there was no confusion at all. The driver (we called him 'G') was funny and warm, he was talking to us about the history of Athens and about himself and made us feel like family. He not only dropped us off but walked us to the tour starting point. The tour guide was amazing she knew so much of the Greek history and mythology it was a very in depth and insightful tour. She constantly stopped to talk about the history (we didn't feel rushed) and made sure we were all okay and having fun. We saw so many amazing sites and learned the background behind them. We finished our tour and called the driver who earlier gave us his number and he came straight away to pick us up. We made it back to the ship in good time. Overall we had an amazing experience and would definitely recommend to anyone!
