When we approached this attraction from far, we could already see it on a cliff surrounded by water. It is a unique photogenic attraction worth going for a day trip.

Did the trip with Getaway Greece through a Viator booking.

You have to confirm that you intend to take the trip around 48 hours prior to travelling and you are given a pick up time from your hotel or apartment. Be ready to depart twenty minutes before the allotted time. The tour company makes an allowance for the Athens traffic.

The biggest bus the company advertises is an 11 seater, on our tour there were only six people so there was some room. We went on the sunset tour and set out from Athens at around 4.30 and arrived back at 10.15. Our tour guide was Theodore a young Greek student who was both informative and entertaining. The initial stop was at a beach side restaurant with the Temple visible in the distance.

On arrival at the Temple there is an entrance fee of 6€ that is not covered by the tour. You have plenty of time to wait for the sunset so just enjoy the views and take in the history that surrounds the area. The sunset is stunning and the Temple comes alive as the sun sinks away in the distance.

A great place to visit and a very enjoyable evening to take in some ancient history.

My daughter and I did this tour in May and we loved it! Our guide was really friendly and knowledgeable about EVERYTHING to do with Athens, the mythology, the temple, etc. and made the hour-long drive there really informative and enjoyable. The site itself was awesome, it was a rainy day but it was still incredibly gorgeous - and not too crowded on the day we went!

I booked a trip with CHAT tours through Viator to see something outside of the Athens. This was a fantastic lucky choice! The bus ride to the Temple was well received with the views of beaches as we drove along side the coast. The temple is smaller and quieter which made it more pleasant and enjoyable. The cafe at the bottom can get busy so expect to wait.
