6. 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.

What people are saying about Church of the Holy Apostles, Greece

We were in a group of about 20 others. It was simple to meet at the Temple of Zeus. The guide was waiting for us. The tour is all walking, but all these sights are close to each other. I'm old and out of shape so I was worried about the climb to the top of the Acropolis, but with the stops and the Odeon and Theater along the way it was not as challenging as I expected. My legs sure are sore today, though. The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining and, best of all, helped us avoid the long lines.

Evangelis was an outstanding guide! He has a profound knowledge of Greek history as well as mythology and guided us with passion and patience. We would HIGHLY recommend asking for him as your tour guide!
