Full description

Spend the day driving along the coastline of Greece. Drive from Athens to Cape Sounida, making stops for photos, before arriving at the Temple of Poseidon to watch the sunset. Eat dinner with a breath-taking view and relax with a private car back to your hotel.


Begin the tour by driving along the Athenian Riviera, stopping along the way to capture photos on the scenic route. Pass the suburbs of Glyfada, Voula, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza.  


Stop at the picturesque peninsula of Vouliagmeni. This is the most expensive piece of land in the whole of Greece. Its mild climate and water temperature make it an all-year-round popular spot.


Continue along the dreamy coast, taking in the Aegean, the Saronic Gulf, and its small islands. Be delivered to Cape Sounion in time for the sunset. A perfect place to share precious moments with family, friends, or a significant other.


Visit the Temple of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. It is surrounded by the remains of its fortifications, gateway, and houses. Admire the ruins that remain after over 2000 years.


Finish the evening by enjoying dinner by the sea. Below the site are several taverns, ideal for a romantic dinner for honeymooners. After dinner, your driver will return you to your hotel in Athens.

Excellent time spent in the company of George who made us enjoy a superb panorama all along the road that leads to Cap Sounion! The site is superb, calm and benefits from a dream view for a very original sunset in such a setting. Very pleasant excursion with a stop for dinner on the return trip… perfect! A great end to the day!

Our guide George was punctual in picking us up from our hotel. Gave us alot of information and enough time to explore the temple and its surroundings. We enjoyed the cool breeze and sunset views thoroughly. The restaurant he recommended by the sea has great grilled fish. Most important thing is he did not rush us despite we overrun the schedule.

All I can say is wow. Great service we were picked up directly from the hotel and dropped off there again. The mini van was new and clean and the driver was super motivated. Cape Sounion was fantastic a dream and afterwards we had dinner right by the sea . The money was worth it. Thank you very much for this trip and great service.
