    Temple of Poseidon
    Stop: 75 minutes - Admission included
    Our tour starts with a wonderful drive along the Athens Rivera. During this relaxing ride, you’ll enjoy splendid views of the Saronic Gulf while passing through some of Athens’ most beautiful suburbs, including Hellinikon Olympic complex, Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza. Arriving at the Cape Sounion, you will visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of Poseidon with its magnificent panoramic view of the Aegean Sea (on a clear day you can see at least seven islands). Cape Sounion has long played an important part in Greek mythology and history, and the first recorded mention of it occurs in the Odyssey, as the last safe landing before Poseidon scattered the returning Greek navy. As god of the sea, Poseidon was very important for ancient Greeks, and the scale of the Temple at Cape Sounion reflects that. After visiting the Temple, filled with the beauty, the history and the culture of this site we will wait to admire one of the most amazing sunsets you could ever imagine.

Stunning sea views with a majestic temple
Oct 2019
Took a sunset tour of the temple of Poseidon with Get your Guide. Had to take the subway to meet the tour guide & a small coaster for about 12 people. Easy to reach and find her. Tour guide was very friendly,had loads of info, could ask her all kinds of questions about Greek history, mythology and even politics and she answered them happily. On the way we stopped at an ancient amphitheater as well. The temple itself wasn’t very crowded, was very windy & cold. Waited for the sunset which was spectacular. Highly recommend!

Beautiful way to end the day!
This was a very nice tour. We were picked up at a nearby hotel. Very convenient. The drive to Cape Sounion is long but it’s a lovely drive. Spent about 90 minutes here. Lots of time for pics and a glass of wine afterwards. The guide was sweet and very informative. Glad we took this tour.

Great view, badly organized tour
Aug 2019 • Couples
The sunset was amazing, but even though they said it would be a hotel pick up, we had to walk to a neighbouring hotel for pick up, and the bus arrived over half an hour late.
When we arrived there was little to no communication so no one really knew if we had to wait for the guide (which we eventually realized we did)
The sunset was magical, then we had to rush to drink our wine and get back on the bus.
We didn't get back into Athens until after 10pm.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your time to send us your review. I am happy to hear that you found the Cape Sounio sunset magical. Indeed the view of the sunset in combination with the temple of Apollo and the Saronic Gulf is really majestic and one of the most renowned in Greece along with that of Santorini. As regards the rest of your comment, kindly note that we offer a complimentary pick up service to better serve the transportation needs of your company and we also offer the option to all guests to directly come to our office if they want to save time. According to our accurate tracking systems of our bus the bus arrived on time and indeed the tour finished at 10 pm which is the scheduled time to finish. I hope this helps and I always stay at your service. Best Regards, Dimitris Bistolas | Μanaging Director

Sunset activity too rushed
Jul 2019 • Couples
While the sunset at Cape Sounion was spectacular, the tour guide did not let us stay until the sun had completely set. The activity was supposed to provide a chance to take pictures of the sunset, and also enjoy a complementary glass of wine. Our guide rushed us out before anyone could have wine. As we filed out of the site, the carafes and wine glasses sat out, untouched. The result was an anticlimactic experience. I got the impression the guide was more concerned with avoiding potential traffic than our experience. Also, on the return bus ride, the driver listened to talk radio, in Greek, instead of playing music that would cater to the patrons. The site is worth a visit, but there is room for improvement on the part of the tour company.

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your time to send us your review and for mentioning that the site is worth a visit. As regards the rest of your comment, I feel very sorry for not fully satisfying your expectations on this occasion. Kindly note that since the sun has gone down and the sunset comes to an end the archaeological site of Sounio closes for its audience and this is something we are obliged to respect as a company. I hope this helps and I always remain at your disposal. Kindest Regards, Dimitris Bistolas | Μanaging Director

Enjoyable tour
Jun 2019 • Solo
Joined in last minute when a tour with another operator was cancelled. They accept last minute walk-ins at their Key Tours office. Good guide and driver. Clean bus. Comes with a complimentary glass of red/white wine or soft drink. Would have given 5 stars if we left on time instead of delaying for half an hour.

Wonderful Experience - Gorgeous Location
Jun 2019
The Sunset at Cape Sounion Half Day Tour was the last of my scheduled tours and a great way to end a fantastic time in Greece. The bus ride to Cape Sounion through the Athenian Riviera was relaxing and beautiful. Our Key Tours guide, Agatha, was knowledgeable and a very lovely person. We had plenty of time to wander around until sunset. A nice and classy “extra” to this tour was the Key Tours hosted wine area for the people on the tour. I did have a mix up on the departure time and missed my original tour date. Key Tours was quick to offer a solution for me to go on this tour the next evening and that made me a happy customer. Cape Sounion at sunset is a must on your Athens itinerary!

Nothing fantastic really.
May 2019 • Solo
Ive been to 2 sunset tours for cape sounion.

The one that KeyTours organized is quite massive about a whole excursion bus full.

its really boring, nothing much shared. Its just the temple visit at quite an expensive cost.

They didnt bring the best out of this event..

Try the one thats organized by GETAWAYSGREECE. That one is really fantastic. Its a small group tour on a minibus and stop by a few damn good locations and a good and cheap restaurant with a clear view of the temple while you eat and just during sunset he will drive you up and explain alot about the history of that place to you.

Amazing sunset at the Temple of Poseiden!
May 2019 • Friends
An amazing trip to Cape Sounion and The Temple of Poseiden. Key Tours wasn't able to pick us up at our hotel but they did pick us up at one roughly 10 minutes walk away. Our tour guide spoke perfect English and gave a brief history of the Temple, Cape Sounion and the surrounding area(s). Our bus was big and only half full so our ride to the Temple was very comfortable. Once we arrived at the Temple we had plenty of time to take pictures and view the sunset. Fortunately we had perfect weather so the Temple and the sunset were both beautiful. Overall a very scenic, educational, and awesome trip. If you are visiting Athens and have the time you should book this trip!

Terrible experience
May 2019 • Solo
I book the Cape Sounio half day tour through Klook.
Key Tours confirm me the pick up location and time by email.
I arrive at the hotel entrance 15 mins in advance according to their instruction.
At the pick up time, the hotel staff come out to tell me that the car is coming for about 10 mins delay due to traffic problem.
I think this is totally acceptable. So I keep on waiting.
But around 45 mins later, there is still no one comes to pick up!
I call the Key Tours. The staff just ask me if it's possible to change the tour to tomorrow!!
That's the result of waiting for 1 hour?!!
This is totally an unreliable tour agency!!!

Since we became aware of your case, we immediately reacted to remedy the situation in the best possible way. We first apologized and recommended you to take the tour the next if it would be possible for you. Since this was not possible for you, we proceeded with a full refund. Once again I am so sorry and we hope to give us a second chance to prove to you that what happened to you is extremely rare and that we traditionally provide exceptional services and unforgettable experiences to our guests which is why we remain the leaders of the industry for the last 56 years.
