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.
