Not sure why the tour started at 4:30 when sunset was not till 7:30. We were in a fifteen person van but couldn't hear anything that the guide was saying along the way. He had a mike but it was difficult for him to use while he was driving a stick shift! Once we got to Sounion, he was helpful getting us in line to go to the top where the sunset was brilliant. On the way back he stopped at a point where we could take great picture of the Poseidon Temple all lit up. Highly recommend this trip.

The guide spoke excellent English and was very informative about Greek culture. He was careful and experienced in navigating the journey to Cape Sounion and the evening tour of the Poseidon Temple. He allowed plenty of time for questions and took us to several other spots which were not listed, including a brackish lake on the way South (where a wedding party was being prepared) and an excellent restaurant on the beach. The sunset tour of the Poseidon Temple is well worth it, even after a very long day of touring the Acropolis and its museum in 95 degree weather. Strongly recommended.

The driver did not know details about one of the places we stopped, such that I had to research it while on the van. I felt him to be less informed than the other tours. The temple was terrific in every way, but that had nothing to do with the driver. The worst part was, it was dark and he dropped my daughter and I off on an unfamiliar street. We had to find our way back, which was several blocks from our hotel. We also had to walk to another hotel to get picked up, but as it was light, it didn't matter as much. This is meant to be a warning to anyone who books this tour to be mindful that you might not end up where you want!

What a magnificent ending to our dream vacation to Greece. The drive along the Greek Riviera is wonderful and the view and sunset at the temple are amazing. The tour guide was awesome. Funny, friendly and well versed and had only been with the company for a short time. The van was well maintained, comfortable and safe.

This was one of our favorite things we did on our trip! Cape Sonunion and Temple of Poseidon were picturesque, and so much history! Our driver was funny and nice as well as informative. He even took us to one of his favorite local restaurants in a little town outside of Athens after the sunset which was great to eat in a locals kind of restaurant. Would highly recommend.

The countryside is beautiful and when you have a good group on the bus, it can be real fun. Poseidon's Temple needed a guide to help really tell its story. Our tour guide was adequate but could have offered more by way of history and interpretation.

Tour handled very nicely! Driver was pleasant and informative. Tour description was just as described in the description.
