What to Expect
From one awe inspiring site to the next is how your day starts, unfolds & just keeps going! From your hotel or cruise ship terminal you will travel in style in one of our new model black Mercedes vehicles with full leather & WiFi as your informative driver stops at all the main sites of Athens including the Acropolis, New Acropolis Museum, Hadrians Arch, Temple of Zeus, Parliament & changing of the guards. Explore these at your leisure without deadlines & your chauffeur will be ready to take you to the next destination.
Your driver will suggest an ideal spot for lunch and refreshments before continuing out of the city for around an hour along the Aegean coast line and exploring the beautiful area of Sounion and the breathtaking Temple of Poseidon perched on the shear cliff edge with its open sea views where you can learn how the Aegean got its name, the importance of the Temple in Greek history and of previous visitors from Theseus to Lord Byron during his own Grand Tour.
For those wanting a greater depth of information & guiding inside the archeological sites, the option of having an expert Private Licensed guide to accompany you inside any site is available on request. Private guiding time for the Acropolis would be 2 hours for example (100 Euro). Time for the Acropolis plus New Acropolis Museum would be minimum 3 hours (140 Euro).
