  • This was a self guided tour through the site of Ancient Corinth, our guide gave us 2 hours to go through the site and we thought it would possibly take only about an hour given previous sites we had been to. Well what can one say.....THIS was the Greece we were expecting!! The archaeological site of Ancient Corinth was amazingly spectacular. It took us 2 hours and we could have spent longer. We went through the museum first which housed so many great statues, mosaics and artefacts. We then travelled the beautiful village of Nafplio, marble pavements, looming fortress and remarkable architecture. We had a typical Greek lunch with our guide who was helpful, friendly and had a great sense of humour. In hindsight we are sorry we did not go up to the Palamidi Fortress behind Nafplio but it seemed like way too many steps at the time.
    We would highly recommend this tour to everyone wanting to see Ancient Corinth and the lovely seaside village of Nafplio.

  • We enjoyed our tour tremendously. Our guide did an excellent job and was very flexible with her schedule and went out of her way to accommodate her. My apologies for not remembering her name.
    I did feel that the cost was to high for just the gas and toll expense. That is way I didn't give it 5 stars.

  • Konstantinos was an excellent driver. He shared a wealth of information and was very considerate of the special needs of my husband. The ability to craft the tour that worked best for us was valuable although it might have been more reasonable to get lunch closer given the heat factor.
