Overview

Are you searching for something different? We have created an excursion for people that
want to discover more from Greece and experience at the same time something
extraordinary.
A small glance in our photo gallery will give you an idea about our day trip. The tour is
starting from your accommodation where our English speaking driver will pick you up with a
comfortable luxury sedan / van / mini bus always clean and ready for a road trip.
As we heading to the Peloponnese peninsula through the beautiful coastline of Saronic gulf
we will reach our first stop, Corinth Canal. Corinth Canal is a 2700 years idea that
started around 602 b.c and finished in 1893. A remarkable waterway that saves money, time
and provides safe passage for all cargo and commercial ships as it connects the Ionian sea
with the Aegean sea.
A masterpiece of engineering that makes the Peloponnese peninsula the biggest island in
Greece. You will have the opportunity to stand on the bridge that passes over the
magnificent canal and to take some memorable pictures. After that we will continue our
road trip 80 km north-west and to our next stop, Diakopto town.
There, we will assistance and give you time to take the rack railway train to Kalavryta town.
Odontotos (rack railway train) has started 120 years ago to connect the seaside Diakopto
town, climbing 750 meters (from the surface of the sea) through the VOURAIKOS CANYON
with the Kalavryta town.
Since then Odontotos and Vouraikos river go together. Magnificent and unique route
through picturesque towns, villages, bridges and landscapes. At the end of the route you will
be at Kalavryta town.
Famous for the Greek revolution against Turkye in March 1821 .The liberation of Kalavryta
came 5 days later against Turkish resistance on 25 March. Also very famous from the World
War 2 and the Kalavryta Holocaust after the nazi invasion at December 9 in 1943 where the
Germans forced the people over 12 years old to walk on the hill ‘’kapi’’ and murdered the
entire male population. You will take a walk at the beautiful town of Kalavryta with the
graphic alleys, the gorgeous landscapes and you’ll get a taste of the local products.
You can visit the museum, the memorial of Kalavryta Holocaust and you can also rest at the
main square of the town. Then we will pick you up to continue our trip with our final
destination, the crystal waters of the Corinthian gulf and Diakopton municipality.
The choices are endless. Relax and enjoy the rest of the day, you can swim at the sea or eat
at the local taverns. The day tour to kalavryta-Diakopto is something that you will never
forget and also an experience of a life time.

The view of this canal from the highway is just beautiful. The canal was amazing! I've never seen teal-colored water before. It was like a dream. It is a must-see site.
