Starting from Athens, you will drive westwards along the scenic coast to the amazing Corinth Canal. On the drive past the beaches of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni and Varkiza you'll see countless coves lapped by crystal-clear azure waters.

Enjoyed this tour very much. The scenic bus ride from Athens to Corinth made the journey enjoyable and added a worthwhile dimension to the tour. The guide was knowledgeable, professional, pleasant and respectful. She worked with each individual in the group and made us feel quite comfortable and safe. The bus driver was hip, peppy and funny and it was a pleasure to be driven by him, especially on a fairly long journey. He was patient with us and never made us feel that we were holding him back or making him late.
This tour was certainly one of the highlights of my trip. I learned a whole lot about Corinth from the tour guide and it substantiated the bible's account of this City and it's history. Seeing the Canal was exciting but I felt that we did not have enough time to do a little shopping, go to the washroom and take pictures at the Canal. This would be a good time to extend a few more minutes for that kind of thing. Considering the length of the tour, a brief stop to get a drink and/or snack would be a treat. We were quite hungry by the time we got back to Athens. It would be good to let people know that they should bring a snack if they need it.
I highly recommend this tour to visitors of Athens. It is worth the money and the time.
Viator is my favorite tour company and the tour company delivered well. This is my first time using Viator and it certainly won't be the last. Wonderful memories. Thank you.
