Corinth Cave Tour
I cannot stress how great our experience was with Eudaimonia Private Tours. Throughout the process Nikos and his team were helpful responsive and courteous. Theo was an excellent guide. He was courteous, well informed and catered to our experience. So much so that we scheduled another outing the next day.

When we return to Greece rest assured we will be reaching out to Nikos and team for excursions and getaways!

Great guide and day trip to Peloponnese!
We had a fabulous full day tour to Corinth and parts of the Peloponnese we would have never known about (who knew skiing is a popular sport in Greece?). We enjoyed a great lunch at a local taverna in Kalavryta, train ride and toured unbelievable caverns. Loved seeing countryside of Peloponnese.
Nikos was an outstanding guide and knew places personally- very knowledgeable! He made the day especially memorable- thank you Nikos!

Thank you both for the great review but most of all for the special day of being with extremely nice people! Where to start; communication before the tour, during the tour, easy-going, interesting in the sites and all the extra ... itinerary :), politeness, appreciation of our service, very respectful with the car (left in perfect condition). In 3 words? Super nice people! Thank you!

Fantastic tour on the peninsula
This is an excellent day trip out of Athens. Our guide Theo was spectacular in every respect - prompt, friendly, courteous and extremely knowledgeable (answering all our many questions throughout the day. Trip was easy too book, with all the appropriate follow-ups and confirmations. Train up the mountain was neat, and cave of lakes was lovely. Next time I’m in Greece I will definitely book something again (likely Delphi and Meteora) and request Theo. Worth every penny.

Such a great time!!! Theo was such a wonderful guide showing us the northern Peloponnese!!
Jul 2021
We loved this tour and would give it 10 stars if we could!

Nikos (owner) arranged for Theo (a local archaeologist) to be our guide for the day and we LOVED Theo! We spent about 11 hours with him and soon after he picked us up in an AC vehicle we were chatting about life, friends, families, etc - we felt very comfortable conversing with him! As the summer days can be hot, he kindly had extra water and even a delicious snack of cookies (prepared by Nikos' wife) any time we needed refreshment!

While it is a long drive from Athens to the Peloponnesian area (our first stop was Corinth), he made the drive very fun for us, pointing out local landmarks. He was very safety-conscious every time we exited our car (for example during the photo op of the Corinth Canal), which we appreciated. Following the Corinth Canal, we then had time visiting a museum for Ancient Corinth followed by an exciting train ride on the Odontotos Railway (lots of cool views as we went up a mountain!)

Theo was then waiting to greet us as we then walked through the charming town of Kalavrita, also stopping there to enjoy lunch. Theo's great recommendations for lunch options left us very happy as we then departed to our final destination of the Kastria Cave of Lakes - so cool! We then had a nice drive back to Athens to conclude our day.

With this being a private tour, Theo made us feel very comfortable, personalizing the experience for us and keeping the pace of the tour very relaxed! He also had a great booklet that outlined all the stops with a lot of great information!

Don't miss this tour (and ask for Theo!) - it is a very exciting one!

My wife and I had a fantastic time on this trip! It gives you a great chance to get out of the city and see a bit of the Peloponnese peninsula. Our guide Theo was fantastic and helped us order an amazing Greek lunch in a wonderful little town on our trip. Recommended!

Such a unique way to see more of Greece
Dec 2019
We really liked Nikos and he did a wonderful job showing us around the various sites. He did a good job keeping the conversation for the car ride, and was spot on with his food and drink suggestions during our lunch.

Personally we actually don't prefer private tours because we like interacting with more people during the tour if at all possible. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible in this case. One thing we wished Nikos did, however, was spend more time with us at some of the sites. For example, he might have been a useful guide during our time in Corinth, and when we did the Cave of Lakes tour, our guide had to do it in Greek for everyone else and explain everything a second time to just the two of us. I think it might have been better if Nikos came in with us to explain things in English. (And yes we feel bad for not knowing the local language...I wish we did understand Greek!)

The trip overall was lovely and we recommend Nikos and his company wholeheartedly!

Thank you very much for the review. Apologies for the Greek only speaking guide in the Cave of Lakes. We were misled by the tickets people saying that their guide will be speaking English; otherwise I would have been with you to enjoy the walk. The guides at the caves are almost volunteers and not always English speaking! Private tours are a different and better experience but it takes two -like many other things in life- to make them a successful experience. The good thing is that overall it was still a very good (4 star) but not an excellent (5 star) experience. :) Thank you once again for choosing Eudaimonia Private Tours!

Multiple attractions in one day!!
Theodore was our guide for the day and he was an absolute blast!! He is very young and SUPER knowledgeable! You can ask him literally anything and he would know the answer. Very open and honest! This was our first private tour and it is def something we would do again. We got to visit many places and for the most part we got to move on our own time! The food was great! We let Theo choose our meal and we were not let down LOL

The travel car was comfy and cozy!

Our favorite of them all was the railway train!!! Absolutely beautiful! Great tour and tour guide! Would highly recommend if visiting Greece (:

Fantastic
Dec 2019 • Family
We went as a family of 5 on this tour (two kids in college, one in high school) with Nikos as the tour guide. Nikos was awesome, giving us tons of information about all things Athens and Greece, including the history, food, culture, sites, etc. all the stops on the tour were extremely interesting: Corinth Canal (cross it by foot on a bridge.. breathtaking view) ancient Corinth (very large site, great exhibit and don’t miss the fantastic museum at the end— we were quite stunned at how well it was done), Odontotos train (amazing sightseeing as the train feels up and between the mountains), Kalavrita (very fun small town near the ski center), and Cave of Lakes (Mother Nature never ceases to amaze). I had told Nikos my family wanted an authentic Greek meal for lunch, and he delivered in a big way. The restaurant in Kalavrita was one he had found to have excellent quality food after trying numerous others... from the starters to the beef/pork burgers and chicken with black pepper and lemon juice, to a Greek yogurt desert and local beer. What a treat!

This is not the typical “touristy” tour. This is for those who want something a little more off the beaten path, to see some amazing sites in the Greek countryside, get a variety of experiences, and get great insight from someone who knows this area and it’s customs well.

Highly recommend this tour to anyone. My only regret was that I didn’t allocate additional days to see more of the Greece countryside. Next time I come, I’ll look for Eudaimonia to take me to Meteora, Delphi, and/or Mycenae.

Everything was wonderful! From our personal guide Theodore to the impeccable timing of missing the big tour buses at ancient Corinth, this tour was great! The train ride was gorgeous and the small villages are adorable. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable and had some valuable insider tips. The cave of lakes was amazing as well, though we went in the fall and it is supposed to be even more spectacular in the spring. There were additional personal touches as well, such as cookies from the owners wife. Highly recommend this company!

A WONDERFUL DAY
Oct 2019
Theo was prompt in picking us up in a very comfortable van. We first went to Corinth and is was a wonderful treat, just what we had hoped for. Next was visit to a winery high in the hills of Nemea. A beautiful trip, greta scenery, and super wines. Purchased a couple. We next went to the cave of lakes, another scenic drive. Then on to a beautiful mountain town where we had a very very tasty lunch, with Theo helping to chose. Their Greek salad, a restaurant speciality, was the best salad of the trip, mixed at the table. Due to a strike, our bad luck, the train was not running but the scenery as we drove the route the train would take was awe inspiring. Theo was full of information and a super guide for the day. Whether it was questions about wine, Greece itself, the culture itself or just walking through the mountain town and his help with the menu he was the best. Thanks
