  • Strongly recommend the full day tour of Athens, Acropolis, Acropolis Museum and Cape Sounis. This tour includes a lovely two course lunch in a restaurant that is recommended by Trip Advisor. I found the lady tour guide on the trip I undertook on June 30 to be very friendly, knowledgeable and very patient when some co-passengers did not arrive in the bus in time. The driver of our coach was also very relaxed and careful driver.

  • The tour provided all of the highlights of Athens and then a very remarkable view at the Poseidon Temple. The lunch was incredible at an Athens outdoor cafe with salad, appetizers and a full entree. Tour guide was excellent, knowledgeable and sensitive to those with mobility issues
