What you can expect

Our day begins in the morning as I pick you up with my car. We head together towards Sounio and the wonderful beaches of south Attica.
On our way, we'll make a stop for a real Greek breakfast with fredo and bougatsa.

The first stop of our trip is the Temple of Poseidon in Sounio built in 444–440 BC. In a maritime country like Greece, the god of the sea occupied a high position in the divine hierarchy. In power, Poseidon was considered second only to Zeus (Jupiter), the supreme god of the Olympian pantheon.

Following our cultural visit, it's time for some swimming! We visit the nearby beach and we cool down in the crystal clear water, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

After we enjoy the sun and sea, we're heading to a local tavern to enjoy a meal with the locals. Meat, fish or vegetables there's a choice for everyone. When the sun is setting down we can head back to the city and I'll drop you off to your hotel.

There is the possibility for up to 8 people tour, just ask for a personalized offer.

(The entrance to the Temple of Poseidon is 8 Euros/4 Euros for students and is not included in the price of the tour. )
