    Temple of Poseidon
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission excluded
    Take this private Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon Half-Day Trip from Athens and feel totally relaxed. After pickup from your hotel, settle into your air-conditioned luxury car or mini van, destined for Cape Sounion. Then, enjoy the scenic drive along the Saronic Gulf, passing beaches and seaside resorts. En route, hear from your private driver about Cape Sounion and why it provided the perfect location for the ancient Greek Temple of Poseidon, built on the promontory between 444 and 440 BC. Moreover, learn how the temple stands on the site of an older version and acted as a beacon for ancient sailors. On arrival, admire the white columns perched above the sea. Likewise, wander around the ruins and view the signature of Lord Byron, carved here in the early 1800s. Absorb the far-reaching views over the Aegean and take unique photos. Later on, your private driver will recommend you scenic places to go for a meal or even a delicious waffle with ice cream.

My wife and I arrived in Athens at 10am and we were anxious to start our Greek experience. We had booked a tour to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon which has a reputation for one of the best sunsets in Greece (it was). We elected to start the tour at 4pm so we could get in an early dinner and then see the sunset. Our guide arrived on time in a beautiful Mercedes sedan and we rode in comfort for the 1 hour ride. Our guide pointed out many details along the way and included some great mythological stories. After stopping to see some thermal springs we arrived in Cape Sounion our guide recommended a perfect seaside cafe with a view of the ocean and the temple. The food was fantastic and we tried way too many things. The Temple of Poseidon was very impressive and was surrounded by beautiful ocean views. After getting our pics of the temple and sunset our driver suggested we stop for some delicious Greek ice cream on the way back to the our hotel where our guide presented us with a welcome gift as well. Wow, a perfect first half day trip!

This was really an amaizingly simple and short but sweet trip to see the Temple of Poseidon and the Cape. Yannis was our guide and he picked us up at our hotel and very safely drove us out and back from Athens. He gave us really amazing historical and mythological facts about the coast line, the islands that we could see from the drive and the ancient ruin site. The scenery was just amazing and the sunset was ridiculous. I highly recommend Yannis as a driver and guide and going to this site when the sun is about to set. Beautiful. We had a great and relaxing trip. On the way back Yannis also recommended a great restaurant to eat as well as a great gelato place that served Masticas flavored gelato. All around a great trip and I highly recommend!

We were impressed with our driver Mr Giannis who arrived a few minutes ahead of time and was very courteous. He was a careful, attentive driver. He gave us lots of interesting information about Athens. He explained the route he would take to Cape Sounion and from time to time shared more of his comprehensive knowledge of the city. He also gave us time to chat between ourselves. We stopped for a photo at a little distance from the Cape and he took a couple photos of the two of us, something we rarely get. He told us the myth, the Greek tragedy of the story of King Aegeis and his son which was interesting and added to our experience. When we arrived at the Temple of Poseidon he encouraged us to take as much time as we wished and not to rush. When we returned to the car he asked if we'd like to stop for a meal and suggested a taverna popular with the local people, not often frequented by tourists. It was a really super day, one that we will long remember. We certainly will contact the company again when in Athens. A special thanks to Mr Giannis.

WOW WOW WOW!!! YOU MUST DO THIS!!!
I’m a sunset lover so everywhere I go, I try to find the best places to see the sunset and what’s better than experience it at the Poseidon Temple? Our driver made the trip exceptional, he even made a quick stop and bought us local cookies which we thought it was very sweet and awesome! They all are extremely kind and we loved loved loveeeed this tour! Once you get there, you will be amazed on how wonderful this experience is. On our way back to the hotel, our driver gave us some recommendations of nice restaurants and it was just the best! I’m very very happy we did it and I sincerely suggest you to do this. You won’t ever regret!

Ioannis was a fantastic guide and driver on our tour to Cape Sounio. Ioannis provided valuable information about the different neighborhoods and sights along the way. Ioannis was caring and made accommodations for an elderly member of the tour.
Ioannis recommendation of a restaurant for dinner was a good one as well.
He was personable and extremely generous. He gifted us a beautiful guide book to the acropolis, a box of traditional Greek sweets and olive oil bottles.
Overall, I highly recommend the Cape Sounio experience with Ioannis. His attention to detail and unhurried way all throughout the trip left us with memories that will last a life time.
Thank you Ioannis. You made us feel very much at home.

As a solo female traveler, Yannis was the best person to drive me to Sounio to see the temple at sunset. I booked this with him because I had such a positive experience the day before. I felt safe and comfortable, and it was generally a beautiful night.

Incredible opportunity to visit Poseidon’s Temple late afternoon and stay for beautiful sunset. Our tour guide was entertaining and knowledgeable, sharing so much information that we would not have known had we not had an escort. This was a beautiful experience, topped off with a lovely meal at a wonderful seaside restaurant. Highly recommending Crispy Tours for personalised service and exceptional tour.

We had an excellent experience with our guide Ioannis on July 27th. He is very courteous, knowledgeable and attentive, a real gentleman. It was our 2nd Wedding Anniversary and the costal drive to Cape Sounion was lovely. The sunset view at the temple of Poseidon was stunning, a romantic highlight! The seafood dinner at the Fish Tavern was delicious and the seafood tasted heavenly. Highly recommend!!

During our last stay in Athens we visited Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon. The ride by it self is a unique and a fantastic experience, the coastline is magnificent. The Temple and the sunset from the Temple is something I will never forget. Having our guide connecting all that beauty with the greek history and mythology makes this experience a no miss. The finale at the taverna with the delicious greek food was the cherry on top.
