Our excursion to Corinth and Athens was fantastic. Our driver Odysseus was exceptional. The knowledge of Athens and Corinth was phenomenal. We learned so much from him while driving to our tour sights!!!! Odysseus even stopped and let me go into a Starbucks in Athens (which was not apart of the tour. But he did so because we told him Starbucks was my favorite). All in all, Odysseus went above and beyond to ensure our experience was enjoyable and memorable! This Tour and our tour guide was AMAZING!!!!!

It was an amazing day tour. Great information and good insight to local traditions. Our tour guide pointed out and drove to multiple locations around Athens, and Corinth. We had a group of six and had plenty of comfort during the drives. The tickets to enter are not included but only a few stops require to pay access fee. Great day all together, big thanks to Odysseus our guide!

The tour is worth it!

This afternoon tour is perfect if you have limited time and wanted to do something after arriving in the morning. We love the beautiful scenery and the guide is very knowledgeable and full of information about surrounding areas. Plus, the driver drove smoothly and safe despite the winding road along the way. We highly recommend this tour!
