We have been to Athens, the Acropolis, and the Acropolis Museum several times before, but this time we took a tour with Onoufrios. It was fantastic. He does a wonderful job conveying the historical,
Archaeological, and linguistic importance of everything we saw. We loved It and couldn’t recommend him more. Will definitely be back to hire him for other tours.
Four of us booked Onoufrios for a 3 day tour of Athens and surrounding areas. He is extremely knowledgeable and truly a fun person to spend time with. Be sure to book the Corinth Canal day which included super driver, George. He treated us like royalty! Look no further. This is the guide that you want. Check out Onoufrios' website.
We hired Onoufrios for a private 1/2 day tour of the Acropolis and surrounding areas. He met us on time, and did an amazing job of keeping us away from the crowds while we toured. He was knowledgeable but more importantly, he was personable and so enthusiastic. Not only did he give us an excellent tour, he also suggested restaurants and other places to visit. Highly recommend!!
Onoufrious' expert commentary made our day in Athens as much about the people of ancient Greece as the architecture. He had a special way of conveying visual details to help us understand and retain the historical timelines. We also did his Corinth, Mycenae, Epidaurus and Nafplio Private Tour, which augmented and reinforced what we learned in Athens. Since we had heard numerous times "This is a replica--the original is in Athens", we squeezed the National Archaeological Museum Private Tour in on our last day. He found many interesting artifacts in a rather stody museum. Highly recommended.
Our first stop is the impressive Corinth Canal, which connects the Aegean and the Ionian Sea. Bungee jumping is also available here!
One of the biggest rivals of Athens, Corinth was once completely destroyed by the Romans. When it was reinhabited, it became Greece's largest city, which St. Paul visited and wrote some of his famous epistles to. It houses one of the oldest Greek temples, as well as a beautiful museum.
The 'golden city', as Homer described it, Mycenae is an important UNESCO Site. With massive walls 'built by giants', it was the kingdom of legendary King Agamemnon during the Trojan War. For 1,500 years, one of its vaulted tombs held the record for the biggest dome in the world!
Another UNESCO Site, Epidaurus boasts Greece's best-preserved ancient theatre and hosts the country's most prestigious festival, where audiences can watch 2,500-year-old tragedies and comedies that shaped theatre!
Nafplio, the capital of Greece before Athens, is a picturesque town with imposing fortresses that Turks and Italians fought over for centuries. Now it's an ideal place for relaxed strolls and a lunch during the tour.
A van is provided.
Less than 72 hours (3 days) notice: full fee of cancelled tour payable.
The sites can be combined in any way but NOT ALL TOGETHER since that would make the tour quite long and wouldn’t provide visitors enough time for each site.
