A really PRIVATE day journey -just for you and your partner or group- to all the Athens essentials & the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion. Explore the city: Olympic stadium, the Acropolis, Hadrian's Arch & the Temple of Zeus, ancient Agora, Lycabettus hill. Watch the changing of the guards. Then, take a ride along the coastal rode with a magnificent Mediterranean view to visit & explore one of the most impressive and picturesque ancient sites in Greece, the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion. Enjoy this non touristy, flexible, customized tour and a great lunch, treat of your driver/guide. What is different: private (really), personalized, flexible, does not cancel if not enough people in the "bus", excellent real Greek food included. Opt in for an extra stop at the beautiful Vouliagmeni lake. This full day tour is operated is a non touristy fashion.
For this special private tour, PRIVATE means that in the case you are 1-3 people there will be a brand new 4 door vehicle just for you and if you are 4-7, again the brand new (2017) minivan vehicle will be just your group. Vehicles are not filled in with non related people so this makes the tour totally & really private. Start in the morning from your base in Athens for a relaxing tour of all the Athens essentials sites: Acropolis, ancient Agora, changing of the Guards, Olympic stadium, Adrian's Gate & Temple of Zeus and -time permitting- Lycabettus hill. Depending on your "own pace" we visit more or we visit less, adjusting on the go! In the afternoon, let your driver/guide treat you to some excellent Greek food where the locals eat out. Then, take the coastline drive along the Athens Rivera. Enjoy splendid views of the Saronic Gulf while passing through some of Athens’ most beautiful suburbs, including all the nearby marinas. The ruins of the Temple of Poseidon are situated on the sea cliffs at the tip of the Cape Sounion. Enjoy the sensational views of Cape Sounion and the sacred Temple of Poseidon on this totally private half-day tour from Athens. The temple was built back in 440 BC, to honor the god of the sea, Poseidon. Explore the remarkably preserved ruins while you enjoy the beautiful panoramic views across the Aegean Sea. Cape Sounion is an important part in Greek mythology and history and Poseidon was hugely important to the Greeks, as he was the god of sea. The Temple at Cape Sounion reflects the importance of Poseidon with its size and placement. Should you visit at the right time, you can also enjoy one of the most amazing sunsets. On the way back there is an optional (but free) extra stop at the scenic lake of Vouliagmeni.
