What people are saying about Corinthia

Athina was a fabulous tour guide. Friendly, very informative and looked after her tour very well. The tour itself was super comfortable in a big air conditioned bus. Our driver Mr Costa was careful and confident on the road. We stopped at Thoriko Acropolis for a few minutes and moved on to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon which was so impressive surrounded by the Aegean Sea. Too beautiful. There is a little cafe at Cape Sounion for drinks, a bite to eat, gifts and very clean bathrooms. A most worthwhile trip, giving us an hour and a half to wander around on our own and watch the most beautiful sunset. A few minutes surprise stop on the way home. A trip absolutely worth doing and highly recommended. Thank you. Marika & Jan Smit from Johannesburg South Africa.

Not to be missed experience! Bill was our guide, he was very enjoyable and gave great history background on your way to the Temple. We stopped on the way and saw the oldest existing theatre, and on the way back stopped at a beautiful lake, which were nice surprises. The temple and surrounding area is so beautiful and the sunset gorgeous. You get some amazing pictures of the sunset behind the temple. Absolutely recommend this experience!
