  • Athens: Blue Hop-on-Hop-off Bus and Cape Sounion Sunset Tour

    Temple of Poseidon and Cape of Sounio sunset tour: You will drive along the south coast to the Athenian Riviera, which will allow you to easily reach the otherwise hard-to-get-to Sounion. Once there, you will be dazzled by the famous landscapes that surround Sounion. In the times of the ancient Greeks, this site was revered as sacred ground dedicated to the gods Poseidon and Athena. You can marvel at the Temple of Poseidon, which perched upon the cliff’s edge 70 meters above the sea. Later, walk the blessed earth of Sounion, one of the places sung about it in Homer’s Odyssey. You can then stand upon the same cliff where it is said King Aegeus threw himself off. The tale is told in Greek mythology that Aegeus told his son Theseus that if he defeated the Minotaur, he should return to Athens with ships bearing white sails. Theseus forgot this request, and when Aegeus saw ...

    It was a nice tour. The bus is very comfortable and you learn alot from the audio tour. Be aware it is a sunset tour so you'll arrive with only an hour and a half to do things.

  • Athens: Ancient Greek Theater Performance

    8. Athens: Ancient Greek Theater Performance

    Watch a unique, funny and touching play, right next to the Acropolis museum. Do not leave Greece without joining that thrilling experience, a theater performance given by actors talking in English and learn about some of the most interesting myths related to ancient Greece. The story goes like this: “During his visit to the Acropolis, a present-day tourist slips and gets knocked out. When he awakens, he finds himself transported to the 5th century B.C, Athens. There, he will have an intense talk with Medea, watch the daughters of Oedipus grieve, chase the god of Wealth himself around the Parthenon and find out how Odysseus solved a Cyclopean problem.”

    Came on honeymoon, and spotted this little gem in the activities lists. We both love theater - and ancient Greek theater is a fave - so we went for it! It was brilliant. The handmade masks were beautiful. The players were not just talented, it was also clear how hard they work at every aspect. It's a well oiled machine at this point! We loved the excerpts, and the tie-in story. On top of all that, the rooftop views are wonderful. The backdrop above the stage is a lit-up Acropolis, and all around you can see the city spread out, lights a-twinkling, moon shining. It was just great, and we'd highly recommend it!

She even walked us to one of the places she recommended so we wouldn’t get lost! She was amazing and so was the tour!

Kimon was an amazing guide! He was flexible, which was perfect because it allowed our group to move at our own pace. He was also funny and very informative.
