Well worth it.

The pre & post sunset views were stunning. Very enjoyable with a glass of wine. The guide was not engaging though. Best to read up about the history & the place before you get there, so while you are there you use your time to soak in the views and take great photographs.

Very nice tour

The journey takes about 1.5 to 2 hours (depending on the Athens traffic situation). But that's not bad, because the ride along the cliff is very nice. The temple is worth seeing and of course there is a beautiful sunset. Round off the evening with a glass of wine. Overall, a recommended evening trip.
