Most agencies run tour excursions at about the same prices, but CHAT and Key Tours have the best service and guides, plus comfortable air-conditioned buses. Taking a half-day trip to the breathtaking Temple of Poseidon at Sounion (€40) avoids the hassle of dealing with the crowded public buses or paying a great deal more for a taxi. A one-day tour to Delphi with lunch costs €99, but the two-day tour (€152, including half-board in first-class hotels) gives you more time to explore this wonder. A full-day cruise from Piraeus, with either CHAT or Key Tours, visits three nearby islands—Aegina, Poros, and Hydra—and costs around €99 (including buffet lunch on the ship). The Winemakers' Association of Attica Vineyards has a comprehensive Internet site with plenty of information about the history of wine making in the Attica region and potential wine tour routes encompassing its active members. Full-service travel agencies, like Dolphin Hellas and Karagiannis Klimi, handle hotel reservations, transportation tickets, and tours.
