Sunset at cape SounioSunset at SounioHighlights: The tour's focal point is the Temple of Poseidon (5th century B.C.) at the edge of cape Sounio. The bus follows the coastal road to Sounion and passes through some of the best suburbs in Athens (Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza). The Temple of Poseidon has one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world (on a clear day you can see at least seven islands). The precipice is a sheer 197 foot drop to the sea.

If you take the evening departure from Athens, you will have the opportunity to admire one of the most amazing sunsets.

It was a long drive, the tour was ok and our tour guide was mediocre.

The trip was fine. Only half day so not much to comment. We didn't like the guide because she asked for tips (though in a discreet way) -- she must realize that in some cultrure it is not common to give tips as that is deemed as a rude guesture. Nothing serious about this but comparing with Demi who went on a 4 day trip with us, didn't ask for anything from us.
