If you’re interested in the fascinating and long history of Greece, this is the perfect shore excursion while you’re in the port of Piraeus. Don't miss the chance to visit Athens and Corinth, two of the strongest cities of the ancient times.

After meeting your professionally trained and licensed guide on the pier, depart from Piraeus and drive along the coast reaching the Corinth canal, an enginnering marvel which connects the Peloponnese with mainland Greece. After a short stop for pictures, continue with a few minutes drive to Ancient Corinth, where Apostle Paul came, worked and established a thriving church, subsequently sending two of his epistles, now part of the New Testament. Visit also the Agora and one of the most outstanding monuments of pre –Roman period, the temple of Apollo.

Return back to Athens for a panoramic drive around the main modern attractions of the city including a visit at the impressive Panathinaiko Stadium, the only stadium in the world built out of white marble. Proceed, passing by Zappeion and Temple of Olympian Zeus. Next is the sight that's sure to be a highlight of any visitor's list: the UNESCO-listed Acropolis. Visit Parthenon, the temple on the top of the sacred rock devoted to Goddess Athena (Goddess of wisdom), the Propylae the monumental entrance to the Acropolis hill and the small temple Athena Nike, which stands on a protruding mass of rock, protecting the gate to the citadel and of course the Erechtheion with its porch of Maidens. Admire also the Mars Hill where Apostle Paul, in the shadow of the Acropolis, preached one of the most memorable sermons recorded in the Bible (Acts 17:22-31).

Enjoy your luxury drive back to Piraeus Port, where you’ll be dropped off at your ship on time for your embarcation.

We loved this tour. You first stop at Daphni Monastery and get a tour of it. Then you are off to tour the Corinth canal and on to Ancient Corinth. The Temple of Apollo stands out as you drive up to the entrance. You get to tour the museum as well which has a lot of artifacts and statues for a small museum. It is worth a trip to see it.

I was on a cruise only had one day to spend in Athens and Corinth. Because I am interested in the Biblical Archaeology following the foot steps of Apostle Paul sounds like a very good idea. I manage to arrange a day tour with Key tour to Corinth and Athens .We visited Mars Hill where Paul visited in Athens.We also visit Corinth old Town where Paul went through his trial. Marianna our guide also took us to Kenchreai the original port where paul sail to Ephesus and the church of Kenchreai was mention in Romans16;1. It was an amazing trip . I will recommend Key tours and Marianna as a guide to any one who is looking for a reliable person to take you around especially when you have limited time to spend

We wanted to see as much in the Athens area as we could in one day and our guide made that possible. Traveled to the ancient city of Corinth and various sights in that area before coming back to Athens and see all the sights. I don't know how it got so much in a little over 8 hours and back to our ship in plenty of time. If we had taken ships tour it would of cost so much more and seen so little with a large bus tour. Well worth it to get the most out of the region!
