What people are saying about Corinth

An absolutely amazing tour! It was so well organised, and I felt that I never had to worry about a thing. The itinerary was fantastic. 4 days felt like the perfect amount of time. We got to see all of the highlights and never felt rushed. The bus, accommodation (4 star) and food were all great. The tour guide, Helen, was the best! She was friendly, patient and very knowledgeable, and she was always happy to answer any questions people had. Mikey was friendly and an incredible driver. Unfortunately, I was sick during the tour but both Helen and Mikey went above and beyond for me by helping me get in to see a doctor. 100% would recommend this tour to anyone!

This was an outstanding tour, covering so many classical places in Greece. Starting in Athens..briefly stopping at the Corinth Canal, before proceeding to Epidaurus, Nafplio and Mycenae. Extensive tours of the archaeological sites of Olympia and Delphi, with ample time to appreciate both sites. The final day was spent in Meteora, where we toured two monasteries of the six that were built in the 13 and 14 century. There were many places that unfortunately we did not have time to stop at, but at least we did get to see them and hear about them.

An amazing trip! Efi, our guide, was very knowledgeable about every stop and spot and we got to see so so much. The only downside is that the lunch stops, while nice, were at one specific spot picked out instead of free time to find a place in the towns, and that these stops were more tourist priced than most of Greece. Otherwise a truly amazing tour that goves you so much value, history, and appreciation of Greek history.

Amazing experience. Although very hot, guide tried to keep things interesting and made it worth our while.

Excellent and informative tour with a great guide.
