Athens (Piraeus) Corinth Canal by Boat Excursion Reviews

Tour the Corinth Canal to learn about the ancient town where St. Paul lived and preached for two years as you pass some of the famous remains of the city.
Interesting tour but the canal experience was not something I would recommend.
Sail Date: May 2018
Interesting tour but the canal experience was not something I would recommend. We chose this tour because there were 4 cruise ships in port that day and we thought the Acropolis would be too crowded.

An hour plus bus ride to our first stop above the Corinth Canal. Then onto Ancient Corinth before the Canal by boat. The excursion was about 6 hours which was nice - any longer would have been tiresome. The Greece experience is always heavy on history and mythology and we would have enjoyed more information about the canal than about the mythology around what red poppies symbolized. Read Less

Since we were on back to back cruises, we stopped at Piraeus twice. One stop we did the Acropolis and The Acropolis museum, which are must do's. On our repeat stop we chose the Ancient Corinth and Canal Cruise, which we greatly enjoyed . They served a nice local lunch on the cruise too. The drive did not seem to take long to get there and our excellent guide pointed out so many interesting things along the way. Read Less

The archeological site has not expanded much over the past few years but the boat ride through the canal was very interesting, especially the birdges at the entrance and exit of the canal.

In Piraeus, we skipping our usual train trip into Athens and opted for the “PR01 Corinth Canal”. After a couple of hours on the bus, we arrived in Corinth and went out on a bridge to see the canal from above. The bus went down to water level where our group hopped on a private boat to traverse the canal. They provided a surprising nice selection of local Greek food including spanakopita, shrimp, octopus and other snacks, washed down with a small glass of Ouzo. Read Less

We've seen the Corinth Canal before, but not by boat. An impressive sight from a different perspective. A small, but good buffet with local food served.

We have been over the Corinth Canal before but this was the first time we went through the canal, it was definitely worth doing once for the experience but we don't think it is worth doing twice.

The first time we sailed through the Canal was at night which was very exciting as lit up and we had a boat guiding us through the Canal. We sailed through a second time during the daylight and enjoyed it just as much.
