Athens: Private Tour of Athens and Ancient Corinth

10. Athens: Private Tour of Athens and Ancient Corinth

Discover the ancient city of Athens and its world-famous Acropolis and ancient Corinth, buried under millennia of sand. First, you will be visiting one of Greece's oldest marvels: the Corinth Canal. The canal is a long and narrow stretch of water that runs through Corinth, linking the Gulf of Corinth on the North to its outlet in the Saronic Gulf on the south. The canal is unique because it cuts through the Greek mainland to allow ships to pass from the Atlantic Ocean on one side to the Mediterranean Sea on the other side. Today, you will be able to see some of these impressive engineering accomplishments in action. After you are back in Athens you're going to experience the ancient sites and hundreds of museums, including the iconic Parthenon as well as lesser-known treasures like Byzantine-era churches and monasteries. A visit to Athens is not complete without a walk through the beautiful Ancient Agora. Spend time at one of Athens’ most famous sites, where Socrates taught and Plato debated, before heading across the ancient city walls to see the remains of another highlight: the Temple of Hephaestus, which was built in the fourth century BC and is today a ruin. Then it’s on to the bustling central square of Plaka, with its many shops and restaurants. Here, you can stroll through Old Athens—the quarter where Socrates lived and drank his famous hemlock cocktail with friends before dying around 399 BC. Your next stop is the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the most important religious monument in Athens. The site, originally a temple dedicated to the Phoenician god Baal, was constructed on top of an earlier temple built in about BC 675. Excavations have revealed various artifacts from this period including friezes and sculptures depicting fertility-related themes. You'll need at least 3 -4 hours to visit the ruins and explore them fully. After the tour, your private driver will take you back to your hotel. The total duration of the tour will be 10 hours from pick up to drop off.

very interesting tour that touches the main stages of classical Greece. About 1,300km in four days make you appreciate the convenience of not having to worry about the road, parking etc. The accommodations in the tourist category hotels are very simple, in decidedly dated structures but with a cleanliness that is always appreciable. The guide George is nice and well prepared, who has always illustrated in detail the places visited, making them appreciate a broad cultural and linguistic knowledge of Italian well beyond the places and historical facts in question. Thank you for having managed a group in your own way where someone had a few requests too many. The restaurant proposed for lunch on 1 day in Mycenae is unpresentable, absolutely inadequate and unacceptable where it is hard to find something edible.

Our family had a fantastic time on this tour, driven by our guide, Marinos' passion, knowledge and relentless energy and enthusiasm. We got a variety of experiences across eras of Greek civilization, from walking Mycenae to dining sea-side in independence era Nafplion, and see lots of hidden gems like an ancient road that pre-dated the Corinth Canal or swimming in the sea with local families. Epidaurus blew our mind - from trying out the stunning acoustics (you really can hear a coin dropped on stage, from the very top row of seats) to wandering the extensive ruins of the Sanctuary of Asclepius. Topping it off was the engaging, in-depth and wide-ranging conversations we had with Marinos!

Wonderful half day trip! Great experience to see the beautiful scenery on the way and have a wonderful tour of ancient Corinth. Our guide also told us artifacts and information to look for in the museum which was very helpful and made it even more interesting! Definitely one of our favorite tours in Greece

Excellent tour that allows you to see a lot of Greece in 4 days. The guide Effie was great, passionate with a very holistic approach. Everything was very well organized with 4* hotels with swimming pools every day.

Our guide was great and thorough, providing interesting information as well as allowing for free time.
