Private Sunset Tour to Sounio

A lovely- out of the ordinary - tour

An afternoon scenic journey along the Athens Riviera and an amazing sunset overlooking the Aegean sea from the Temple of Poseidon.


Enjoy a lovely- out of the ordinary - tour to Cape Sounion one of the most famous sites of Attica Region; located just one hour away from Athens, in the comfort of a private or semi-private luxurious vehicle. The tour has been especially designed to get you to the Temple of Poseidon exactly on time to experience the world famous sunset, but also, to give you the opportunity on the way, to get to know some of Athens’ most beautiful suburbs and natural beauties.

Start your afternoon journey for the discovery of Athens’ suburbs, in the comfort of an air-conditioned, luxury, non smoking vehicle, on a private basis.

Drive along the beautiful coastal road and enjoy the magical scenery that unfolds before your eyes: Lovely seaside promenades, yacht harbours, coffee places, stadiums and natatoriums, mansions and beautiful buildings while in the background, the deep blue color of the sea fills your eyes.
Leaving the Athenian riviera, your drive will continue through the equally beautiful sea- side road: Small villages and summer settlements, sailing and fishing boats crossing joyfully the Saronic Gulf and numerous little islets scattered  in the deep blue horizon.
After a brief photo stop at the right place to capture the Temple of Poseidon and the wonderful Aegean sea from the correct “angle”, you will arrive at Cape Sounio.

No wonder why the ancient Greeks chose this place to build the Temple of the God of the seas. The Temple of Poseidon awaits you with the most astounding panoramic view of the Aegean.
After having captured the beautiful colors of the sun diving into the Aegean sea, you will re-board your luxurious vehicle and drive to a nearby sea-side simple “Meze”-Tavern, where you will enjoy a Greek aperitif  (Ouzo) with some “mezes”, the Greek tapas.

Return back to your hotel following the same coastal road, after having enjoyed a Greek style aperitif by the sea and having captured the magic of the sunset and the romantic scenery with your camera, your eyes and your soul... These are memories that will last for a lifetime! 


Your driver will meet you at the reception of your hotel (the exact time will vary according to the time the sun sets on the day of your tour! The pick up time is set approx. 2 hours prior to sunset. The exact pickup time will be given to you upon reservation).
Being a private tour, the departure time can be adjusted to any time you’d like and the tour can turn from a sunset one to a morning or an early afternoon one! Just let us know of your preference upon booking!


Prices start from 50 € per adult. It depends on your group size.
