Corinth canal private tour

☼☼☼ Corinth, Cave of Lakes, Odontotos Railway Private Tour ☼☼☼

If you’re looking for something different, getting away from the main tourist attractions and experiencing some authentic Greek elements, then this is the trip to take. Our driver and host for the day, Nikos of Eudaimonia Private Tours, arrived promptly at the agreed time, car clean inside and out with bottles of water and homemade cookies. He quickly introduced himself and outlined the day for us. He was very friendly and knowledgeable, able to answer all our questions. The first stop at the roadside was to view the humanmade canal and then onto Ancient Corinth, where we toured around the museum and ruins.

Our next primary stop would be for lunch, however, being a private tour, we diverted off the route to view a small architectural church, which was really splendid, and then as we drove through a small village, he suggested we go back and sample the coffee. After a brief discussion with the owners, he was satisfied that the coffee would be good, and we sat down to a great cup of coffee. A couple of off the cuff experiences also gave us the opportunity to see the roasting of meat over an open fire on the roadside. Unfortunately, we could not stay for lunch as we needed to move on to our next stop.

After a brief walk around the town, up in ski country, we sat down for lunch. Nikos chatted with the waiter and then, with our consent, ordered food and wine. The food was authentic and really good, giving us some new flavors to try. It also provided us with the time to chat with Nikos at length as he ate lunch with us. It was then on to the rack railway train to go down the mountain, a 55-minute ride through some beautiful scenery. At the bottom, there was Nikos ready to then drive us back to our apartment after a wonderful private day tour.
