We did this tour the night of the full moon. Our driver was excellent. Professional, informative, entertaining. The site itself is amazing, and timing it with sunset, spectacular. The tour is timed to give you time to explore the site prior to sunset, as the site closes shortly after sundown. The drive out to Sounion is also beautiful.

Many thanks to Frank and the exceptional service of HellenicTours!

Very fast and very easy we planned and booked our private tour to Sounion tour, Frank helped us to arrange our personal schedule to see the sunset there! We were a family of 5 (3 adults+2 kids 6/8 y.o.)

Very clean and new car Mercedes Limo 2019 (we even booked it for our transfer back to the airport after the tour).

One day before the tour we decided to take a Russian speaking guide instead of English, in 10 min after our e-mail Frank already found a guide for us!

They have Whatsapp, but even vis e-mail Frank always responds in 5-10 min max 24/7.

Thank you and our guide Svetlana and driver Themis!
100% highly recommended!

Our family of 6 (kids ages 6-20) arrived in Athens at 9:30 am after a 9.5 hour overnight flight. I chose the Private Half Day Sounion tour. I had schedule this tour in the afternoon beginning at 3pm rather than the recommended 5pm start time. The recommended time would have allowed us to see the sunset while eating dinner. I was worried about my 6 year old feeling jet lagged and grumpy. We only had two days in Athen, so I wanted our family to see as much as possible. It was the perfect start to our family vacation. We were picked up from our hotel and we drove about 1.5 hours with a a few stops. We loved our stop at Lake Vouliagmeni where little fish nibble on the dead skin on your feet. We paid extra to go in for 15 minutes. My 12 year begged to go back because he loved the experience so much. We spent some time at the Temple of Poseidon. We ate at a restaurant on the water near the temple and then returned to our hotel. This was a perfect first day without much walking. It was very relaxing and we all enjoyed it. We also did the Private Full day Athens tour the next day with this company and the same tour guide. Helen was our guide. She was excellent and very knowledgeable. She was very patient with my 6year old when the jet lag began to catch up with her. I would 100% recommend Helen and this tour company.

This was a wonderful half day. It was previously supposed to be a half day tour with sunset at the Temple of Posiden. Rather unexpectedly, Holland America changed our departure from Athens from 11 PM to 8:00 PM. Frank (the owner) spoke English and was extremely accommodating.He was able to switch the tour to an afternoon tour. Two of the 8 couples requested to be picked up at an Athens Museum. Frank then came back to the port to pick us and the remaining couple up. The van was a new model Mercedes. Very lovely and comfortable. We drove 40 miles south of Athens observing breathtaking views of the Agaean Sea. So beautiful. We stopped for a photo op. Frank graciously took our pictures. Then continued on to Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon.We were all given cold water bottles. We stayed there for about an hour then headed back. We stopped on the way back at a traditional Greek restaurant on the water for a very nice Greek dinner. Frank helped translate the menu and added descriptions of the various dishes. All in all, this was a favorite tour of our cruise of the Greek Islands. Frank is awesome.
