Know More about this tour

After pickup at your Hotel, cruise ship or Airport by your private & informative tour driver, sit back & relax in one of our new Black Mercedes E Class, AudiA6 or Mercedes Minibus models with full leather & Wifi as you set off for the 1-hour drive to your first stop, the impressive Corinth canal to learn of its key strategic importance in ancient and contemporary history.

Then, continue into the Peloponnese through the green countryside to the ancient city of Corinth. A once powerful city-state rival of Athens, here you can see the Temple of apollo, the Roman baths, the step from where St. Paul preached to the Corinthians in 52 AD, and take time to visit its wonderful museum. Afterwards, take a 30-minute scenic coastal drive to reach the UNESCO World Heritage site Sanctuary of Asklepios and the Theater of Epidaurus, one of the most visited ancient sites in Greece. You will stop for several hours to enjoy the extensive site before heading to the historic seaport of Nafplio, where you'll have lunch. Finally, take a 2.5 hour drive though the Arcadian mountains to the village of Olympia for an overnight stay in one of the comfortable 4- or 5-star hotels.

After breakfast, take time to enjoy the site at Olympia, famous for its Olympic Games of antiquity which began in 776 BC. Visit the Temple of Zeus, which held one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Temple of Hera, where the Olympic Flame is lit every four years. Visit the workshop of Phidias, the ancient Olympic stadium and the wonderful Archaeological Museum, with exhibits dating to the prehistoric era.

You will come to the ancient citadel of Mycenae. The Mycenian period, from 1600 to 1100 BC, in reference to this ancient city, indicates how important its influence was in Greek civilization. This visit provides a real connection to development of the later Classical Period.

    Our guide was extremely kind, funny, and knowledgeable. He ensured that we had a unforgettable and fun experience. Quality accommodations fantastic food, and unforgettable sites. This was the best way to experience Greece.

    Highly recommend WarmPenguin for any of your tour needs while on the mainland of Greece. The company communicated well to accommodate a 2 day and night tour including hotels and private Mercedes minivan covering Delphi, Olympia, Corinth and other smaller stops. It was nice having back ground information and local recommendations while driving and then exploring sites on our own. They even took us to the port the next morning for our Ferry to the islands. Just ask and they will work hard to accommodate your wants and desires. Overall, it was an excellent tour. Our driver/guide, Bill was the best. He went above and beyond to make sure our trip was great. The only reason not 5 stars is hotel selection on first night was problematic. Very old hotel with uncomfortable beds. Surprisingly the hotel had 5 star trip advisor rating. Also, I thought we could have stayed a little closer to Olympia because the second day was very long compared to the first. I absolutely would use WarmPenguin again and make sure to ask for Bill. He made the entire trip totally a pleasure.

    Our driver, Vasilis, was absolutely fantastic! He took the time to explain the lands history and culture. He picked out fantastic restaurants and hotels, ones that I would like to make an additional trip to see again. He was very patient and friendly dealing with my three children and maneuvering around the covid restrictions changing daily. Thank you very much for the adventure!

  • 25-Jul-2019

    This is a tremendous value and the best way to see the incredible Peloponnese (plus Corinth and Delphi) sites! Vasilli was very informative, knowledgable, and just fun to spend time with. Not only did he take us to all the sites listed above, but chose some great "off the beaten path" hotels and eateries.

  • 17-Jun-2019

    We had a fantastic 3-day tour of Ancient Greek sites through Warm Penguin. Our guide, Panos, made the tour. We were traveling with our 11-year old twins and Panos was flexible and always knew when it was time to find gelato to perk them up. We absolutely loved Olympia and Delphi. We also loved our evening in Galaxidi, a fantastic small seaside town that we never would have discovered on our own. This was an incredible way to discover Greece and see a lot of the country on our first trip here. We highly recommend this tour.

    Great trip our guide Konstantinos was great very knowledgeable new the area very well , the accommodation was very good

  • 15-Jun-2018

    We did a two day tour + return to Athens on the third day of the historic highlights of the Peloponnese--Corinth, Mycenae, Epidavrous, Olympia, Mystra and based in Nafplion. The driver, Vasilli, was not only an excellent driver but also a terrific source of information and advice about the sites. With his assistance and videos before visiting a site there was no need for an on-site guide. We were a group of 6 and the vehicle was very comfortable. Vassilli kept us hydrated with bottled water throughout the trip. If you can afford it, it is the best way to see lots of sites in comfort and style.

    Had a wonderful trip to the Peloponesse with David as our host. We had to adapt the usual order of the trip due to winter opening/closing times but David let us know what our options were and helped us work out the best approach to fit in everything we want to do. He also gave us lots of information about the places we were going to, and other sites in Greece. The hotel we stayed in was excellent and we really enjoyed all of the sites we visited. David made sure we knew where we were doing and what wa she happening along the way.
