What people are saying about Corinthia

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.

Great experience: I really enjoyed visiting the sights and Dimetris is very punctual, nice and knows a lot about Greece (of course, he is not allowed to enter the Acrocorinth and Corinth because he is not a guide).

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.
