Thank you very much for your feedback! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your substitute tour to Cape Sounion and the Athenian Riviera.

This way, you don’t need to wait in line and have more time to enjoy the rest of your tour! Wishing you all the best and we hope to see you in Greece again soon!

I recently did a 2-week cruise in the Greek Isles with a group of friends. I prefer to do smaller tours, rather than the large ship tours, so I chose The Travel Insiders for 3 tours, Santorini, Olympia, and Athens. The Travel Insiders made booking 3 tours easy and convenient.
