Enjoy a private luxury tour discovering and exploring the Corinth Greco-Roman Biblical region. Among the opportunities here is the chance to trace the footsteps of Apostle Paul, as well as get the opportunity to explore Ancient Diolkos (the ancient passage across the canal from the times of the tyrant Periander in the 7th century BC)

What to expect?

Our first stop is the Isthmus/Corinth Canal which separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland where you will appreciate the engineering and incredible views of the Corinthian and Saronic Gulfs. Here you have the opportunity to experience the ultimate adrenaline rush with Zulu Bungy diving off from the bridge into the narrow Isthmus of Corinth (255.9 ft/78 m ).

Our second stop is ancient Diolkos where you discover and explore the ancient passage from the Corinthian to Saronic Gulf and the sub-ducting bridge.

Here you can enjoy a coffee or snack at a wonderful cafe while you admire the views and wait for boats to pass through the canal.

Our 3rd stop is the Acropolis or Acrocorinth with the incredible walled gates. As we drive up the monolithic rock we will be captivated by the breathtaking views of both gulfs, the Isthmus canal, Gerania mountain and surrounding beauty (1883 ft/574 m). Being the home of Pegasus (the winged horse) you will also discover the temple of Aphrodite and the Upper Pirene spring.

Driving down Acrocorinth we stop at Hadji Mustafa spring where you will admire Ottoman architecture and engineering. We then visit St.Paul’s church, where you gaze upon a fabulous mosaic mural depicting his vision from Christ while on his way to Damascus to persecute Christians. The work of art is truly astounding!

Time for a break! We enjoy a delicious authentic Greek lunch at Gemelos’ tavern on a fabulous balcony overlooking the temple of Apollo or at Marinos’ tavern with captivating views overlooking the Corinthian Gulf and the temple of Hera. (tavernas are recommended only)

Finally, you will explore the incredible archaeological site of ancient Corinth with the fabulous museum, courtyard, temple of Apollo, the fountain of Glauke, Sacred Spring, Peirene, Asklepieion, Odeion, Bema, Agora and much more.

After your shopping time and if you wish refreshments again you will be driven to the port of Kechries tracing the footsteps of St. Paul to the East.
You will then be driven to your drop-off point.
