Our tour guide Ruli was very knowledgeable. She asked us a few questions to determine what we were interested in seeing and then customized what we saw. The tour included a nice balance of ancient cultures, Christian history St. Paul and engineering Corinth canal. Our kids agreed with us that this was one of the best tours of our trip.

We also appreciated that Ruli suggested other sites to visit during our stay along with a few restaurants near our hotel.

This was an excellent trip! Our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgable. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was because the agency for whom our guide worked did not seem well organized. They did not inform her of our booking until the night before. She did not usually do this trip, and most tours she does are in Greek. By her own admission, she did not have time to prepare for us. Also, there were a few times she struggled with her English. Still, I was impressed with her overall knowledge. Also, the agency somehow decided there were things we wanted to see in which we had no interest whatsoever. Thankful, the guide allowed us to customize our trip rather than take us to the places the agency recommended. As far as the trip itself, I considered it one of the highlights of my two weeks in Europe.

Wow where to start. Let me just say initially the trip did not start off well. We were informed the morning of our tour that one part of our tour would not be included. The operator said they tried to contact me but to no success. I have no idea why since my information was given to viator. So we were by no means happy. However our tour guide and driver did everything in their power to make sure we still had a good trip and experience. Really appreciated the history about city of corinth and apostle pauls journey. It was refreshing to have a personal tour, so we could ask more indepth questions and made it more personalized. They included a stop near Namia as a substitute for the other part of our tour that was excluded. We got to briefly go swimming, shopping and eat lunch. We enjoyed ourselve but felt disappointed that ibe part if the tour did not happen.
