Cape Sounion

Take a relaxing trip down to the southernmost tip of Mainland Greece to see the fifth century B.C Temple of Poseidon at Sounion.

Marvel at the sheer rugged beauty of the coastline and the ancient temple perched above a 197-foot drop down to the Aegean Sea below.

Poor service by Trafalgar. We were combined with the cost saver group and were given less desirable rooms and travel director than the cost saver group. The Cost Saver guest received better service and paid much less then us. Nothing about this tour stood up to the tour we took in the past with Grand European. Will not travel with this company again.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your honest review.  Our Guest Relations team is researching this with our office in Athens and will be in touch with you as soon as we have more information.

Our Tour Director was unbelievable— one of the reasons we loved the trip so much. Highly disappointed no one ever told us we’d be going with Trafalgar instead of Grand European Tours. I understand they are sister companies, but it felt very dishonest when we found out the day of arrival. The trip itself was beautifully orchestrated. We were not a fan of the hotel accommodations in Athens. They did not compare to the caliber of hotels we stayed in on the islands. That was a big complaint from the whole group.
Vacation
It was a lot of money, but I felt like I got VIP service everywhere. The hotel in Athens was less than easy on the eyes. I was glad most of the trip was spent in other hotels.

The Athens experience was lacking. Hotel had great public spaces but the room was not even satisfactory (dirty carpet, smelled of smoke despite their insistence that it didn't), plus it was in a "dead" part of the city. The Mykonos and Santorini experiences were excellent, including hotels and their locations. In our early 70's, we were the oldest on the tour, and found some aspects physically challenging (Climbing hill to Santorini hotel, doing own porterage on ferries).
Vacation
Good value, except for Athens, but would prefer you charge a bit more so we needn't take care of tips for local experts.
