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.
The ‘rock of Ares’ (God of war) near the Acropolis is where Paul preached during his visit in Athens before heading to Corinth.
Consecrated in 1843, this is the earliest foreign church in Athens. (*only from outside)
Our first stop in the Corinth area is the impressive Canal, which connects the Aegean and the Ionian Sea.
This was St Paul's arrival and departure port on the way to Ephesus, where remnants of a 4th-cent. AD basilica are still visible.
One of the biggest rivals of Athens, Corinth was completely destroyed by the Romans. It houses one of the oldest Greek temples, as well as a beautiful museum, and is the city that St. Paul visited and wrote some of his famous epistles to. We will also see ‘Erastus inscription’, related to one of the people mentioned in the Epistles.
This modest church will give us the chance to admire some beautiful new mosaics depicting Paul’s life.
This grand cathedral inspired by Hagia Sophia in Constantinople was built roughly 100 years ago. It also houses chapels dedicated to Timothy and Titus as well as depictions of Priscilla, Aquila and Phoebe, all mentioned in the Epistles.
A stop at a Greek seaside restaurant will give us the chance to rest and try traditional dishes like Greek salad, moussakas, tzatziki and plenty of seafood!
