What people are saying about Ancient Corinth

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

This was an excellent trip with an excellent driver
