What You Can Expect

Corinth Half-Day Trip from Athens

Corinth Half-Day Tour from Athens

Begin your half-day tour with a pickup from your central Athens hotel or at a central meeting point.

Hop inside your comfortable, air-conditioned coach and admire the scenery as you travel along the coast to Corinth.

Enjoy views of the beautiful beaches of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni and Varkiza on route, and stop to see the Corinth Canal, the narrow, 19th-century canal that links the Saronic Gulf of the Aegean Sea with Ionian Sea.

Take snaps here and then continue to the archaeological site of ancient Corinth, an important trading city in Greek and Roman times that stood at the meeting point of southern and northern Greece.

Here, enjoy 90 minutes to explore the ruined temples, bathhouse, forum and theater, and see the bema — a stone platform where it’s believed St Paul once stood in front of gathered judges.

As you stroll around the sun-baked relics, stop to soak up wonderful views over the Saronic Gulf in the distance.


Afterward, return to your coach and enjoy a short stop at the seaside town of Kehreai. Your trip then ends at the original starting point in Athens.

I enjoyed this tour because it gave interesting information about the major archeological buildings of ancient Corinth. The guide was very knowledgeable and the group was small (18 people).

We had a GREAT tour of ancient Corinth. Only thing I would have liked for us to do is to stop, get out of the bus and view the canal for better pictures of it. Our guide was very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job! Thanks, Viator!!

The tour is just the right length and the guide was outstanding. The bus is very comfortable. Only suggestion is to have participants travel on their own to a central pickup/departure location, such as a hotel. Providing connecting bus service is a nice feature, but it just takes far too long to get started and back to your hotel - in our case, it probably added two hours to the overall time.

Another highly recommended tour from Viator for those interested in this historic and ancient city. The tour was well run by the service provider CHAT Tours whose tour office was the lobby of the Amalia Hotel where we stayed. The tour guide was were good and very informative about the Biblical connections and history of this ancient city cite. Well worth the coach trip from Athens.
