All about the Athens Experience.

Any of our multi-day adventures can be amended to include an extra two days worth of fun inside of Athens itself. This option includes a 3-4 hour “foodie” sampling tour and lunch in Athens’ market district, an afternoon/evening day trip to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon, and a full day, all-inclusive guided tour of the Acropolis, its museums, and the historic surrounding area. These tours may be purchased individually, but we highly encourage adding the entire package to cap off your multi-day road trip.

Foodie Walking Feast

This incredible tour is a walking feast through the Athenian market district, from breakfast through lunch. You won’t find anything else quite like this – explore the food of the city like a true local. In addition to the main meals, samples and stops include Greek cheese, olive oil, grapes from a traditional vintner, and many, many more!

Cape Sounion: Temple of Poseidon

A half-day or afternoon trip to the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion is a popular choice for our guests. The attraction starts with the drive itself, which is absolutely marvellous, followed by an exploration of one of Greece’s most sublime and picturesque historical sites, leaving plenty of time for a relaxing nearby dinner before heading home for the night.

  1. Night 1 Return to Lodging

    After your road trip criss-crossing the country, it’s time to settle in Athens for a few days! Your driver will take you directly from the last stop on your multi-day, multi-site tour to your place of accommodation in Athens for the night.

    The following itinerary is flexible, and the order/schedule of your tours can be adjusted! More details on these tour experiences can be found on their individual pages.

  2. Day 1 Foodie Tour

    Beginning with a classic Greek breakfast and ending several hours later with a meal at our favorite Athenian lunch spot, the Foodie Walking Feast Tour will have you spending the first part of your day on a specialized tour of Athens’ Central Market District.

  3. Day 1 Cape Sounion

    After a short break (and perhaps a quick afternoon siesta!), your driver will pick you up from your lodging and take you on a short but exciting drive all the way to Cape Sounion, at the very bottom of the Attic Peninsula. The Temple of Poseidon, perched upon the cliffs overlooking the Aegean Sea, is truly the spectacle, as is the sunset on the water. If you’d like, this trip can include a stop at the fishing town of Nafplion for dinner. We recommend it highly – one might not find a fresher, more delicious meal in the entire Mediterranean! Quite a way to cap off what truly is a foodie’s paradise of a day.

  4. Night 1 Athens

    Returning to Athens from Sounion (a roughly 1-1.5 hour trip), your driver will drop you off directly at your lodging, to spend the evening as you please.

  5. Day 2 The Acropolis and the City

    Your second full day in Athens can be occupied by our full-day Acropolis and City tour, a morning through afternoon guided experience of all Athens’ historic center has to offer. While this does not include the price of admissions to the sites, the €30 Acropolis & Sites joint ticket (€15 for senior EU citizens and university students with ID) is well worth the cost, providing easy access to a full days’ worth of sites and museums on the Acropolis and its surrounding area. 

  6. Night 3 Home, Sweet Home

    After the completion of your second tour day, your guide will take you back to your lodging for the evening. You can be picked up and driven to the airport at the appropriate time the following day.
