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.
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.
Before the Canal, there was the… diolkos. It’s a rudimentary form of railway, which was used to carry boats on the mainland and was unique even in antiquity.
This beautiful lagoon with shallow clear waters, fishing boats and quaint taverns will be our lunch stop where we’ll try traditional dishes and of course seafood!
Located in a small cove, this 3,000-year-old site is one of the few sanctuaries dedicated to the mighty Queen of the Twelve Gods that we have left.
Our two options are the Lagoon (shallow waters, organised beach, cafés) or the Heréon (deeper waters, no sunbeds/umbrellas, swim by an ancient site).
A van is provided.
