What people are saying about Corinthia

Tas is the absolute best. He majored in Syrian, Egyptian, and Greek History so he is definitely the go to guy for tours and he explained so much about ancient Corinth to us. Also takes you to a great local tavern in Corinth which had great food and a view you'll never get anywhere else. He also takes pics for you and then sends them to you after the tour. Tas is also just a great guy in general. We woke up late for our tour and he shifted it for us to accommodate our late start, he let us take our time on the spots, and when I lost my phone, he single-handedly went back to the place I dropped it to get it for me so that I could enjoy walking through ancient Corinth. Can't recommend this tour enough! Definitely book with them

A good way to tour the great archaeological sites, inaccessible by public transport, and with an extraordinary guide and driver! The sites are magnificent, and with the explanations you can easily dive into the past, but also the present of Greece. The trips are well organized, with regular breaks, and the accommodation well chosen.

This was a great value for your money. Definitely worth it. The food at the hotels and stops wasn’t that great though.

Teh guide Joy awesome. A lot of stories and myths were told and explained.

Driver was excellent story teller on the way to the site.
