Nice trip to Temple of Poseidon - the views were magnificent and the tour guide was knowledgeable. It was a nice way to see in person this part of Greek Mythology.

The place itself is very nice. And so was the drive to the temple. Our guide was very informative and friendly. Just one suggestion, it would be better if the tour could wait at the cape to watch the sunset. So they should decide to pickup/tour time accordingly. We left an hour before the sunset time and could not enjoy it. Also it would be great if the tour bus could stop somewhere along the road for a 10min photo stop of the cape and temple (there are designated places I saw along the road where it was possible to stop vehicles.). We missed 2 great photo opportunities due to this.

Great trip! Vicki filled the trip there with Greek history so we understood the context behind the temple when we arrived. The drive took about 90 mins each way and there's nothing to break it up except amazing sea views so if you struggle to sit still for 90 mins this might not be for you. But the end is worth it. The temple and surrounds are spectacular. If you want to see sunset at the temple, choose a tour which is specifically timed for sunset because the standard afternoon tours leave a little too early.

Another great trip with great guide. Comfortable bus, beautiful views and informative guide. Traffic in Athens sucked but it's a big city with a visiting dignitary so delays were expected.

We enjoyed the drive down the coast, by the water, to get to Cape Sounion. Once there, there really isn't much to see, just the one temple.

My biggest concern is that we were told by Viator that we would be picked up at our hotel (even called to confirm this). Well, a guy shows up and has us follow him, on foot, a half mile away to where the bus was. People that are not mobile need to take this into consideration and make sure the bus will pick them up.

Overall this was a basic tour with a pick up and drop off from hotel and then bus ride to the temple of Poseidon then back. If that is all you want to do then this tour is for you

The drive was nice, we mostly went down the coast of the Sardonic Sea, which was beautiful. The Temple of Poseidon had amazing views, completely unbeatable. There is a small cafe where you can get a couple snack options and some espresso. Small gift shop and bathrooms are available.

It rained a little bit but we packed our umbrellas and the guide gave out ponchos.

Our guide was Joy and she was indeed a joy! She was knowledgeable and told great stories/mythology. I would recommend this tour!

Being from San Diego, a city along the same latitude and therefore a city considered to have a "Mediteranian Climate", I thoroughly enjoyed this half-day trip. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the cape and the temple, as well as certain sites and places of interest as along the way.

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.
