Together we can customise your tour according to your needs and interests, and make your time in Athens as enjoyable and enlightening as possible so that you would want to return again and again!
Sounio is the southernmost edge of the area surrounding Athens and is famous for the ruins of the 5th century BC Temple of Poseidon, god of the sea. The temple, which still retains its original white colour, is perched on a cliff overlooking the Aegean Sea and offers breathtaking views as well as one of the most popular sunsets in the world!

Athens (Αθήνα in Greek) is where I give most of my tours. In ancient times, the capital of modern Greece used to be pretty much the centre of.. everything! It was the birthplace of Democracy; all the famous philosophers you know, such as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, lived and founded schools here; theatre was also born here as a ritual to honour Dionysus and that's where most of the tragedies, such as Oedipus, where performed for the first time ever! This is indeed where the 'western civilization', as we tend to say, started...
For all of those reasons and more, allow yourselves a few days in Athens so that you can take it all in and visit its numerous museums (including two of the world's most important museums: the National Archaeological Museum and the Acropolis Museum), hills, sites, cafes and restaurants in the old town called Plaka or other hip modern areas, and please don't just treat it as a sort of 'mandatory stop' before you head to our beautiful islands.
