What You Can Expect

Athens Super Saver: Acropolis Walking Tour plus Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon Half-Day Trip

Temple of Poseidon

Acropolis Walking Tour (3 hours): 
Meet your guide near Syntagma Square, and see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Greek Parliament, where the Changing of the Guard ceremony tales place.

Next, stretch your legs around the National Gardens, and admire sights like Zappeion Congress Hall, Hadrian's Arch and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Continue through the paved streets of Plaka — the heart of Athens’ Old Town — and then follow the pedestrianized Dionyssiou Areopagitou walkway up to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis.

At the top, enter (own expense) this magnificent complex of sun-baked temples and take a guided tour of its star attractions. Stroll around the Temple of Athena Nike and the Propylaea, the Acropolis’ gateway, as you learn about their history; and marvel at the centerpiece: the Parthenon.

Having explored the main monuments, your tour finishes at the Acropolis. Say goodbye to your guide and enjoy around two hours at leisure before the start of your afternoon trip.


Afternoon Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon Trip (4 hours):In the afternoon, reconvene with your coach and leave Athens behind as you venture south to Cape Sounion. Along the way, admire the picturesque beaches of the Saronic Gulf and hear stories of the Cape, the rocky promontory at the tip of the Attica peninsula, and its famous, ancient Temple of Poseidon.

On arrival, walk up to the temple, built high on cliffs overlooking the Aegean Sea. Take in the phenomenal sea views and if the weather is clear, cast your eyes over the island of Kea in the distance.

Admire the Doric columns of the 5th century BC temple, and discover the Greek myths that surround the building. Be sure, too, to check out the inscription carved by the English poet Lord Byron on one of the columns in the early 1800s.



Afterward, return to Athens where your tour concludes at your hotel or the closest point to your accommodation.

Loved this tour. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. There were some crowds at the Acropolis due to the time, it was around noon, but it is expected so dress comfortable. The temple of Poseidon was also worth the long drive, it was spectacular.

This tour covered almost everything you need to know about Athens. Its a walking tour. We walked almost close to 9km that day.no considering the high inclined steps and slopes. Its very tiring but it was worth it. No one would think about the pain when you reach the attractions. Just amazing. Our guide was very detailed and gave us full insight of everything we asked her.

For a first-timer in Athens like I was, this tour was definitely a solid introduction to the city's major sights and centers. Both tours they operate as a sort of 2-for-1 the guide for the Cape Sounion bus ride was different than the morning walking tour greatly simplified the process of getting around not only the city streets, but the monuments as well.

Always the problem I find with 'guided tours' is how much of the guiding is right. On both these tours the guides were informative but not too controlling. I like to be able to wander off at times and do my own thing and the guides on both trips achieved this. There was also a reasonable gap between the two tours for a bit 'free and easy' exploration.

This was a great tour. Cape Sounion was great and I loved hearing the history of the Acropolis. I would do it again.

Both of these tours were wonderful because of the guides. Both Mariana and Theodora were knowledgeable, funny and most of all passionate about the Greek culture. You will have a fun and educational time.
