Discover Greek Wine, Countryside, History and Mythology through a Fantastic Road Trip!


We start our Tour from Athens, we will head west, along with the beautiful scenic coastal, until we reach the CORINTH CANAL. We will make a short stop and then, in about 15-20 minutes we will reach the ANCIENT CORINTH. During the ancient times, the town of Corinth was considered one of the richest cities in Greece, due to the remains of the TEMPLE OF APOLLO, during the 6th century BC and the ANCIENT AGORA. This is also the place where Saint PAUL preached and lived for about two years of his life. Afterwards, we will drive through vineyards and olive trees, all the way to NEMEA. At this point, we will visit some LOCAL WINERIES and you will have the opportunity to taste some exceptional Greek Wines. Nemea is the place where Hercules killed the Lion and where the Nemean Games took place. After our visit to the Wineries, we will visit the TEMPLE OF ZEUS and the ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM OF NEMEA. Finally, you will have the opportunity to taste some Authentic Greek Recipies at a Local Taverna.

A Recent Review of this tour

My husband and I, as first time visitors to Athens, hit a home run with Markos. From the first to last moment of our tour Markos was engaging and a gifted teacher. His van was comfortable transport for our day long tour. In route, Markos shared information about the history of the sites as well as videos and tour guides. Corinth came to life with Markos and is a site not to be missed. The wine vineyard we visited and delicious Greek lunch were also perfect. Bravo Markos!
