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.

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 time 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.

Disappointed with Corinth Half Day Trip
Anthony_T
, May 2022
I booked this tour with CHAT Tours for Monday May 23, 2022, with a pickup time of 8:45 AM. The day before the tour, CHAT tours changed the pickup time to 7:40 AM. This would not work for me as I had scheduled a COVID test (nasal swab) at the hotel for 8:30 AM. This is a quick one minute test at the hotel were I was being picked up at. I was leaving back to the United States on May 24th and this test is required within 24 hours of departure so this last minute schedule change would not work. I notified CHAT tours that I would have to cancel and they said because it was within 24 hours there was no refunds.

Ruins not impressive
William_M

Guide was excellent. She gave a good history of Corinth and Athens. Bus was comfortable. We were a little late out of Athens due to traffic. My main objection has to do with the site itself. The ruins pale in comparison to other Grecian sites.

It was a great trip we saw the canal and museum and walked the through the ruins area. We felt a bit rushed and felt the tour guide could have walked through the ruins and explained more what we were looking at. All in all it was a great trip

The guide was very knowledgeable. The company and the museum took all the necessary precautions for CoViD. Because our admission to the museum had to be staggered we did not have time for shopping in Corinth, which I would have like but no ones fault. Learned a lot

A Tour for Every Christian

I was so happy that I spent my last morning in Greece taking this tour of Corinth. The highlight for me was seeing where The Apostle Paul stood (The Bema) explaining and defending his beliefs. It really helped me envision even more so the Bible account in Acts chapter 18. The guide she was excellent, very thorough. We did get a 20 minute break at the Corinth Canal whereby you could buy a quick bite to eat, use the rest room and take pictures of the Corinth Canal all before returning to the bus in 20 minutes. Fantastic tour of everything including the Corinth Museum. Another check on my bucket list.

This was a great way to get some hands-on history and a little city getaway during our 4 days in Athens. We appreciated the convenience of the trip, the kind and knowledgeable guide, and the chance to walk among the ancient agora. I enjoyed learning about the historical and biblical significance of Corinth. Another plus: because it was a "half-day" trip, we still had the late afternoon/ evening to explore Athens!

Great tour - just the right amount of time from Athens (started in the morning and back in Athens by early afternoon) - Guide was good. Great to see the old city of Corinth and where Paul stayed on his journeys.
