Athens: Anti Jet Lag Tour with visit to Sounio

Designed for travelers arriving in Athens early in the morning, this tour is tailored so you make the most of those precious pre-check-in hours that typically go to waste. Instead of waiting for the 3 PM check-in to open while carrying suitcases around the city, you can relax, sit back and start your first day of sightseeing, all while beating jet lag. 

After an airport welcome from your private driver, you will head towards a local bakery and enjoy Greek delicacies and coffee. 

Next stop: The Temple of Poseidon, where ancient history meets jaw-dropping views from Cape Sounion. Arriving at this spot early, has the added advantage of avoiding the crowds, and offers a completely different experience than most usually have. We will spend approximately an hour soaking in the history and sights, giving you plenty of time to take pictures or stroll around the archaeological site. 

Our next stop at Faskomilia Hill, offers a relaxing spot to recharge, with panoramic views of Lake Vouliagmeni and the Saronic Gulf. While only brief, it helps put into perspective the terrain and landscape that surrounds this area of Athens. 

We will follow that with a leisurely 90-minute stop at Vouliagmeni Lake, giving you the opportunity to soak in the mineral-rich waters – the ultimate jet lag cure. 

Thought to have been created more than 2000 years ago, Lake Vouliagmeni is a natural oasis, with part saltwater and part spring water, renowned for its therapeutic properties and luxurious amenities. 

Before returning, we’ll make a quick stop at the Lemos Peninsula to admire the dramatic landscape, adding a final touch to our day of exploration and relaxation. 

Finally, your friendly driver will drop you back at your accommodation, refreshed and ready to start your Athens trip with a newfound energy.

Know Before You Go

  • Greeks generally dress modestly  when visiting religious sites. Avoid beachwear or revealing clothing in such places. 
  • If the itinerary includes a church or monastery visit, it is recommended guests bring a long scarf or shawl to cover the shoulders, arms and below the knees. Men should also have their arms covered and avoid shorts. 
  • Comfortable shoes are advisable, especially if you plan on exploring historical sites with uneven terrain.
  • While casual wear is accepted in many places, dressing slightly more formally in the evenings is appreciated in some restaurants and venues.
  • The official currency is the Euro (€). Ensure you have some cash on hand for small purchases, as not all places may accept credit cards. A mix of smaller bills is also a practical approach. 
  • ATMs are widely available in urban areas, but it’s advisable to inform your bank about your travel dates to avoid any issues with card usage.
  • Currency exchange services are available at airports, banks, and currency exchange offices, offering competitive rates.
  • In some places, we might stop by local vendors and small shops. Having small cash with you is recommended for such places.
  • Many tourist sites and accommodations have made efforts to be accessible, but it’s advisable to check in advance and communicate any specific needs.
  • Please inform us of any special needs in advance to ensure a smoother experience.
  • Pack comfortable clothing suitable for the weather during your visit, including swimwear for beach destinations.
  • If you take medication, don’t forget to bring that with you on your day pack or bag. 
  • Sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses are essential, especially during the hot summer months.
  • Consider bringing a portable charger for Full Day Tours, to ensure enough battery for your electronics (camera, phone). 
  • We also suggest bringing a reusable water bottle to minimize plastic waste during the tour, aligning with our responsible tourism values.
  • The basic Greek greetings are: “Kalimera” (Good morning), “Kalispera” (Good evening), “Efharisto” (Thank you).
  • English is widely understood, but learning a few phrases in Greek can enhance your experience and interaction with locals.
  • Greek cuisine includes staples like olives, feta cheese, moussaka, and souvlaki. Don’t miss trying local specialties.
  • The Greek diet is also well suited to vegan, and vegetarian diets, especially if you are visiting during the Easter period (Lent). 
  • For travelers with gluten-free or celiac dietary requirements, it’s worth noting that while accommodating these needs can be more challenging in some parts of Greece, busy touristy areas often have a growing awareness and offer a more accessible range of options to cater to these specific dietary preferences.”
  • In restaurants, it’s common to linger over meals. Don’t rush; enjoy the leisurely pace of dining.
  • Greeks tend to order and eat “from the middle”, which is similar to tapas style. The food is placed in the middle, including salads, appetizers, and mains and everyone helps themselves to everything. 
  • Tipping is customary, and rounding up the bill is a common practice.
  • Tap water is generally safe to drink, with the exception of most islands.
  • Bottled water is best to avoid any sensitive stomach issues, and is very affordable to purchase.
