Tour description provided by Viator

Exclusive to your group alone, sit back in full leather comfort in one of our new Black Mercedes E-Class or AudiA6 models as your informative tour driver takes you out of the city for an hour of beautiful coastal scenery to one of the ancient world’s most important and impressive sites, the Temple of Poseidon. Learn how the Aegean got its name, its importance in Greek history, and of previous visitors from Theseus to Lord Byron during his own Grand Tour. Morning, After lunch or Sunset departure the time you request.
Accompanied by your considerate & knowledgeable English speaking tour driver, depart from your hotel or cruise ship & begin your journey. Exclusive to your group alone, leave the city behind for an hour of beautiful coastal scenery past some of Athens most prestigious districts. Finally we leave the last settlements behind as our road skirts the beautiful cliff line high above the sea until we see on the farthest point of the Attica peninsula the sight of one of the ancient world’s most important and impressive sites, the Temple of Poseidon. Perched on the shear cliff edge with vast open views, the temple forms a historical, cultural and awe-inspiring experience. Take the time you need inside the site to enjoy the magnificent sea views extending to the islands of Kea and the Peloponnese on a clear day and a stop at a nearby picture postcard beach for lunch (in season) making this a wonderful half day trip from Athens for all.
