About the ride

Your Welcomer will serve as your local guide who will share the historical facts, the necessary information about the sights and, of course, his personal input in order to immerse you into the Athenian lifestyle. The sightseeing ride is totally private and personalised, meaning that, together with your driver, you can choose which of the suggested stops you wish to make and the time to allocate to each one. There is always a suggested itinerary to follow but you are free to customise it according to your preferences.

- Hotel pickup and dropoff from a professional English Speaking driver / local guide

- 100% Customisable & Private

The Sightseeing Ride can include many interesting stops visitors always enjoy. Firstly, the famous 1Acropolis Hill & Museum where you can admire the elegant temple of the Parthenon and after that, the modern Acropolis Museum that houses impressive statues and artifacts of the ancient Greek civilisation.

Another idea would be to stroll along Dionysiou Areopagitou Street, a pedestrianized street adjacent to the south slope of the Acropolis where you can also admire the ancient Theatre of Dionysus and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. The heart of the city beats around the 2Constitution Square, in Greek Syntagma, the meeting point for both tourists and locals. If you are lucky, you may witness the 3Change of Guards ceremony. Your tour will not be complete unless you visit 5Panathenaic Stadium or Kallimarmaro as Greeks call it.

After exploring downtown Athens, your driver will escort you to the most spectacular viewing point of the 6Lycabettus Hill, the highest hilltop of modern Athens. Surrounded by pine trees and with a breathtaking panoramic view of the city that stretches all the way to the Port of Piraeus, it is the perfect spot for taking some fantastic photos and enjoying the scenery for a few moments. 

After descending the Lycabettus Hill, your Welcome driver will set course for Cape Sounion, the southern-most tip of the Attica peninsula. Located approximately 65 kilometers outside of the center of Athens, it is a relaxing seaside drive along the western coastline with a view of the Aegean sea. The cosmopolitan town centers of Glyfada, Voula and Vouliagmeni are all buzzing with bars, cafes and seaside restaurants that attract people from all over Athens. The Athenian Riviera is the perfect location for you to have dinner or a cup of coffee while looking out over the Aegean sea and enjoying the Mediterranean sea breeze. It is also home to 8Vouliagmeni Lake, a must-see geological phenomenon made up of thermal springs and underwater caves leading out to the sea.

Once you have enjoyed your seaside dinner, the coastal drive continues to 7Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon. Though relatively remote in comparison to the city center, the majestic Temple of Poseidon is an important landmark and holds significant historical and cultural value for Athenians. Not only can you explore the historical monuments on site, but the Cape also offers a fantastic panoramic view of the blue Aegean sea. End your experience by enjoying the breathtaking sunset from this unique viewing point while looking out onto the Greek Islands.

After exploring Cape Sounion you will return to Athens on the same relaxing coastal route, and your friendly Welcome Driver will drop you back off at your hotel or apartment.

Our driver Alekos was fantastic! He knew exactly where to take us and was extremely knowledgeable about Athens history and culture. He was very patient with an elderly limited-mobility family member, and geared our tour accordingly. His lunch recommendation was fantastic! Great view and food. He was even happy to stop at a pharmacy and grocery and gift shopping along the way. Alekos even translated at the pharmacy for us. We were in great hands and saw parts of the city we would not have seen otherwise.

We had booked our tour few weeks back before our visit to Athens in Aug. The reply was prompt and a lot of information about the itinerary was given. Our tour guide, Mr Nick is a great driver who has given us a lot of in sight about the history of each temples we visited. Would definitely recommend for those who wish to have a pleasant tour in Athens and Sounion!

Frequently asked questions
Expand

What happens after I book?

Once you complete your booking you will receive an email with more details about the Athens & Cape Sounion in a Day tour, your Welcome driver, and any more information you need to know regarding this experience. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at hello@welcomepickups.com for any specific questions regarding the experience.

 

Can I customize the tour based on my needs?

Of course, that is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.

 

Will there be an official tour guide?

An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience is centered around the driver and the local’s perspective. Although the drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of visit, at no point can they be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in depth information regarding historic facts and information. If you would like to include an official tour guide in the experience please let us know via email after the booking is completed.

 

Do I need to be in a good physical shape?

The drivers are trained to adapt the experience depending on the type of participants. Whether you have kids or elders participating, the drivers know exactly how to handle special requests and provide an enjoyable experience accordingly. The most physically demanding site would be climbing the Acropolis, so make sure you bring plenty of water with you on the way up!

 

Useful tips
Expand

Comfortable Clothes & Shoes

We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing and good walking shoes since certain areas, such as the walk up the Acropolis Hill, may have uneven or rocky ground.

Summer Essentials

In the summer months, the Greek sun is especially strong (even on cloudy days) so we recommend that you wear a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen to protect yourself. Also, be sure to drink enough water throughout the day to stay hydrated.

Local Currency

We recommend you always keep local currency on you (euro) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.
