Full description
Leave Athens and drive southwest until you reach the Corinth Canal that connects the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea (short stop). Drive on and visit the ancient town of Corinth, where St. Paul lived and preached for two years. The remains of the city, which include the agora (marketplace) and Temple of Apollo (6th-century BC) clearly show how rich and important Corinth was in ancient times. A short stop at the site of the ancient Port of Cehrees, where St. Paul disembarked will conclude the visit. Return back to Athens by the same route. If you are staying near the coast, you will be transferred back to your hotel at around 15:00 with the tour bus.

Overall it was an excellent trip. Very organised. Knowledgeable guide. Coach looked brand new and very clean. My only complaint is that when we got to Corinth we had to sit on the bus while the guide kept repeating the same story. She then took forever to hand out the listening devices. This was valuable time that was wasted.

It was a large luxury tour bus, so very comfortable. The guide was nice and knowledgeable. The stop at the canal was beautiful. We had about an hour around the ruins while the guide walked us around explaining things. Then we had about 15 minutes to go through the museum. maybe could have used a little more time, but otherwise a good trip.

Quick touch of interesting History

The Trip was Ok and teh agency was also punctual. Historiacal explanation from the guide also complete the experience. Suggestion to improve: enlarge about half an hour the visit of the historical sites. We were a bit in a hurry to see all the ruins and for the visit to the museum we had just a few minutes.
