Yannis is your guide

Yannis was amazing. He took our family of 7 on the Corinth Biblical tour. He was very knowledgeable on every aspect of the trip. He brought us cookies to snack on and they were amazing. So amazing that he took us by the bakery to pick up more for the next day. He even sent me the recipe. We had 4 teenagers and he was very relaxed and kept us all interested. We learned so much and appreciate so much our day in Corinth. Yannis never made us feel rushed. He even went beyond the time we were booked for. Thank you Yannis for taking such good care of us.
Study Abroad Free Day

Our study abroad group came for our free day and had a great time on our tour. Our driver showed up to our hotel in Athens right on time to pick us up. He detailed each stop with the rich history of the area and really tailored to our interests. Our guide at the archeological site, Christina, was absolutely incredible. She was kind, passionate, accommodating, and so knowledgeable. The site would not have been the same without her commentary and insight. We told her that we were very interested in Paul and the aspects of Christianity in Corinth. She went above and beyond to tell us stories about Paul and point out important details of his journey in Corinth. I think I can speak for the group and say that we were sad when we had to say goodbye to her. We all hope to bring our parents/siblings/grandparents back one day to experience all that we learned in Corinth. Thank you, Viator!
Everything you need to know about Ancient Corinth!

Our driver/guide Taz made sure we had everything we needed all day including a comprehensive history of the area and St. Paul's evangelical efforts while at risk of his life. The hotel pickup and dropoff made it so easy to visit the Corinth canal and get the big picture of visits to the Peloponese. Our visit to the Ancient Corinth archeological park and museum was great even with an early winter close at 3:30. We finished with a taverna lunch and a trip to the Frankish citadel before our return to our Athens hotel.
Great experience

We have a wonderful time with Tas during our visit to Corinth, Tas is very knowledgeable, I feel that I could understand Corinth history in a short period of time that we had. The stories are very colourful informative and interesting. We went to Corinth canal (The Isthmus Corinth canal 1881-1893 Austrian Hungarian Engineering Istvan Turr), ancient Corinth, Hadgimoustafa Ottoman spring 1555AD, Ancient limestone roads, Ancient Diolkos Poseidonia area Corinthian gulf West entrance, Zulu Bungy Bungy jump, Acrocorinth Velerefonte Pegasus Upper Pierine spring Temple of Aphrodite Frankish tower etc. The trip ends with a delightful lunch at Gemelos with the best orange juice ever. Thank you for helping us to understand Corinth better.
