Perfect for lovers of fine wine, this private 7-hour tour of the Attica region allows you to escape the metropolitan bustle of Athens in favor of the Greek countryside. In the comfort of a private vehicle, you’ll visit a prestigious winery for a tasting session and enjoy lunch at a traditional seaside tavern. Ascend to the ancient Temple of Poseidon to absorb sweeping panoramas and, weather permitting, take a refreshing dip in the Aegean Sea. This private tour ensures undivided attention from your guide.
At your Athens hotel, board a private, air-conditioned car destined for the picturesque region of Attica. During the journey, admire views of pristine Athenian beaches and the iridescent waters of the Saronic Gulf.
Your first stop is in Attica, a region replete with rolling vineyards and prestigious wineries. Stroll through rows of vines, abundant with grapes, and then tour the winery to learn of wine-making processes. Pleasure your palate with 3-5 varietals of locally made wine, accompanied by cheese and breadsticks.
Next, revitalize with lunch at a seaside tavern in Palea Fokea before heading to Cape Sounio, to visit an archeological site overlooking the Aegean Sea. The Temple of Poseidon is a significant landmark that has served sailors since the era of ancient Greece: spend a while exploring with your guide and discover the site’s history.
Depending on the season, take a refreshing dip in the Aegean Sea before drying off and returning to your Athens accommodation.
The tour would have been amazing except for two things. 1. We did not enjoy our guide and felt like he made some rude comments to us throughout the day. 2. The wine tasting was too early, 10:30am! The Temple of Poseidon was great but the guide was not permitted there and we expected a guided tour.
