Athens: Private Tour to Corinth, Cave of Lakes & Cog Railway

1. Athens: Private Tour to Corinth, Cave of Lakes & Cog Railway

Spend a day on a private tour exploring the natural and man-made wonders surrounding the city of Athens, including the city of ancient Corinth, the Cave of Lakes, and a cog railway. Learn general information about the places you visit from your driver. Choose whether to opt for a guide in Corinth. After pickup from your accommodation in Athens, drive along the mainland coast to Peloponnese, where you’ll have your first short stop at the Corinth Canal, which connects the Gulf of Corinth to the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. Next, visit the Ancient Market and the Statue of Apostle Paul, walking along the same paths the Apostle walked and preached hundreds of years earlier. Then, visit the commercial town of Corinth and the Apostle Paul Metropolitan Church, founded by the Apostle himself around 51-52 AD.   Afterward, reach Diakofto to take the Cog Railway that goes through Vouraikos Canyon, one of the most beautiful natural sights and most spectacular railway rides in Greece. Your train ride ends in the town of Kalavryta, where your driver will meet you to take you to the mysterious and magnificent Cave of Lakes. Discover this rare creation of nature with 13 small and large lakes, each a different color, formed inside a cave that you can now explore. See the “hanging bridge” the “waterfalls”, and the unique stalactite formations as you get the feeling of being in a floating corridor. Head through an artificial tunnel that leads you directly to the second floor for some awe-inspiring sights.   Finally, stop for a meal in the picturesque village of Kalavrita before heading back to Athens.

What people are saying about Kalavryta

My driver, Kyriakos, was amazing. He got me to my destinations quickly, he took care of the train ticket, and as we had extra time - he found a couple of extra little sights to stop and see. The tour guide in Corinth was great too. The Cave of Lakes (in the summer) has very little water so that was a disappointment. Apparently they are more full in the winter. At this point in time, only 3 out of the 13 discovered lakes are accessible (the other 10 still do not have a path made up to them, though they were discovered years and years ago). The rain ride was nice but I think some people may have seen better and it's an hour so it may be more for people that want to get off at an earlier stop to hike up to the village.
