Great afternoon tour. Bus was comfortable and clean. Good driver, maybe a little aggressive. Nice drive from Athens along the Water. Very knowledgeable guide although somewhat hard to understand. May help for her to talk a little slower. Overall an excellent trip.

This was a great tour, altho' the pickup of passengers was very awkward, and took a LONG time. The drive was about 1 1/2 hours each way, but it was worth it. Even the trip in the bus was nice because we were able to see the coast for many miles. Tour guide again was excellent, and had a great dinner recommendation for us in Athens

Don't waste your money. I was not happy with this tour...you pay good money and all you get is 30 min of free time to see the cape and take pics. They drove us up there it took an hr and a half. We got up there...the temple and cape are beautiful but we were given a half hour to take our pics and bathroom break. Then we drove an hour and half back. They didn't even give us bottles of water. Not worth it...just rent a car and drive up there yourself. You'll have more time on your own and not waste you money.

It’s an hour bus ride there with the guide speaking but not clear English so all the information didn’t make sense once we got to the site you get a bit over an hour to walk around it’s really nice I decided to leave the guide and do my own thing I’m glad I did so I could enjoy it.

It was almost a hour long bus ride each way. We got to spend maybe like 45 mins at Sounion. Not enough to see the Temple and take pictures. Felt a bit rushed. I wish they had given some more time to stay there for a drink or snack. As the total trip is over 3 hours.
Guide was good as she kept explaining on the way. The place is beautiful.

Our guide Emma didnt meet our expectations. She had a very heavy accent which was hard to understand...most of the passengers were sleeping. She was hardly audible and even after telling her it wasn't any better. Looks like she is pretty new and I could see the glaring difference an experienced one and an inexperienced guide as we had taken another tour with a deffierent company where the guide wase excellent.

nice experience if a bit short -most of the time is spent in a bus getting there -might also consider a stop along the way and being there for sunset as we were told by many that having us leave before sunset was a cheat .

This was a hidden gem of a place about an hour's drive south of Athens. It makes for a picture-perfect short afternoon tour and you do not really need a guide here. The beauty of the place would perhaps better be captured around sunset and I wish we had the option for that. Besides the Temple of Poseidon, there is not much else to see along the way except a pleasant coastal drive.
