What to expect:

Tour of Corinth and Epidaurus begins when you are collected by our guide from your hotel in a comfortable vehicle.  Your first stop of the day is just an hour outside of Athens, when you reach the famous Corinth Canal. Although first conceived several thousand years ago, it was completed in the 19th century, and is a natural photo stop.

After leaving the canal, the archaeological site of Ancient Corinth is just a short drive away. Here, you’ll learn about the significance of Corinth in ancient times, see the place where St. Paul preached, and visit important areas within the complex such as the Agora and Temple of Apollo. Our guide will help bring the site to life, mixing expert knowledge of the area with Greek myths and even episodes from the Percy Jackson books. They will also point out the imposing presence of Acrocorinth, which will be the next stop.

Acrocorinth, or the Acropolis of Corinth, was used as a place of defence for millennia. It is intertwined with Greek Mythology, and there are the remains of a hidden spring and temple at the top. The views from here are incredible, so make sure your cameras have plenty of space and charge!

After a stop for lunch, the private tour then continues on to Epidaurus. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is an incredible complex, famous for its two main areas. The first is the theatre, which has been designed in such a way that people in the seats furthest away from the center of the stage can hear the tiniest whisper. The second area, is the Asklepios healing sanctuary, a place people would make a pilgrimage to from all over the known Greek world and beyond. Our guide will escort you around the site, explaining how it functioned and again linking it together with myths and the Percy Jackson stories. Finally, after you have completed your tour of the site, it’s time to head back to the vehicle for the drive back to Athens.

Our “Percy Jackson-inspired” Ancient Corinth and Epidaurus tour was superb! Our guide was outstanding: not only was she so friendly and easy to get along with, she provided a wealth of information that made the sights just “come alive” for us all. She was especially engaging with our kids and we learned more from her than we ever could have on our own!

We really enjoyed the Percy Jackson tour with our splendid tour guide. We got so much information to take in and all so interesting. She helped us take in the significance of all we saw. She was very patient with us and interacted with our daughter who is a mythology buff. Would highly recommend the whole experience!

We just returned from an excellent day tour to Ancient Corinth and Epidaurus, in which my 15 year old twins had a great time!We had a very good experience with GreekMythologyTours and would definitely recommend them. Our guides were like having a friend showing you all the secret spots, but also with lots of info that a typical guide would not know.
