What to expect

Your private tour kicks off in the early evening, so you can catch the sun as it starts to set while you soak up the scenic views of the Athens Riviera on your way to Cape Sounio. You will also get to gaze over the Doric-column Temple of Poseidon settled on the top of a craggy coast hill, overlooking the blue hues of the Saronic Gulf and the Aegean Sea.

Follow the clues of Lord Byron and meander around the same place where King Aegeus led the days of his life. During the summer months, stop at Lake Vouliagmeni en route to the Temple of Poseidon and enjoy an hour of relaxation in the waters. Enjoy the sun and the sea, while having some cool refreshments that will energize you enough to ascend to the top of the hill of Poseidon, the southernmost point of Attica.

Have a look at the National Library of Greece or the impressive National Opera House, and relax with a cup of a hot beverage and snacks before you head back to your accommodation.

Private Athens Tour with Acropolis and Plaka

The ancient Greeks left behind a treasure trove of monuments, statues and artefacts in Athens. And on this private tour, you'll take in all the top spots with an expert guide. Exclusively for you and your party, you'll tour highlights including the Roman Agora, Hadrian's Library, the Plaka neighbourhood and the UNESCO-listed Acropolis. Vassiliki, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘Acropolis means “high city” and it usually refers to any settlement built on top of a hill. You'll find many towns in Greece that have an acropolis, but the Acropolis of Athens is certainly the most famous.'You'll start with a guided tour of the Acropolis – with skip-the-line tickets, there'll be no waiting around. Soak up wow-factor views over Athens at the Areopagus – a rocky hill where legend has it the Greek gods would hold court. Let your guide bring history to life as you marvel at ancient landmarks like the Roman Agora, the Theatre of Dionysus and the still-standing columns of the Asklepieion and Parthenon. Then, it's on to the city's Instagram-worthy old quarter, Plaka – the capital's most appealing and historic neighbourhood. Always thronged with a mix of locals and visitors, the pedestrianised lanes are brimming with tavernas whose tables spill onto the streets. Vassiliki says, ‘Athenians call this area “the neighbourhood of the Gods,' as it has been inhabited since the days of ancient Greece. In fact, excavations show that the street layout has barely changed since antiquity.'
