What to expect
  • Sunken city, Little Theatre of Epidaurus. Probably the best outing of our group, due to its unique combination of history, culture, gastronomy, folklore, fun and entertainment. Our incredible experience begins at Yialasi Beach, located a short stroll from the center of Epidaurus. We will paddle westward to the famous Sunken City, also known as Argolida’s Lost Atlantis, with a great view of the imposing Volcano of Methana. The city was built 500 AC. You can see the remains of it and in some places even the ancient breakwater is still preserved. Walls, foundations of buildings, amphorae of huge dimensions and paved sections are sunken, meters below sea level, and only few meters away from shore. Being only two meters in depth, makes it a unique location for underwater site-seeing, snorkeling and underwater pictures. Once we reach the seabed, we will give you masks to swim among the ancient ruins, take photos, observe the unique colorful fish and experience for yourselves the aura and unique healing energy of Epidaurus (Epidaurus: the place where the aura works). When we’ll manage to convince you to move on, our next destination is the Little Theatre of Epidaurus. The Little Theatre of Epidaurus is placed in an area called Nisi, near the port of Palea Epidaurus. It used to be the theatre of the ancient city-state and apart from drama performances, it also hosted religious and political celebrations. This theatre was discovered in the early 1970s, under a field of olive trees and its restoration process continues till today. Its construction started in the 4th century B.C. and was originally built to cover the needs of this small city-state, so its size was not big. It had 9 tiers and 18 rows of seats and could host about 2,000 spectators. Some seats have inscriptions which show that the theatre was dedicated to god Dionysus and was built in sections. This theatre was totally reformed in the Roman times: the orchestra became semi-circular and the seats were reordered. However, it is believed that the small theatre of Epidaurus was in function for only seven centuries since its construction, because the historian Pausanias, who visited the area in the middle of the 2nd century BC, didn't mention anything about it. After several excavations and much restoration work performed over the last decades, the Epidaurus Little Theatre hosts today the annual Greek Festival, celebrated in summer with music, dance and theatre performances. There are seats for 800 spectators and work is done to restore more of them. The performances are mostly held in modern or ancient Greek. At the end of our journey, we will continue through gastronomy, by visiting “Athina EcoFarm”. There, we will relax, rest and enjoy an amazing meal made of local organic products, all cultivated in the area according to the ancient way. Having learned about ancient Greek heritage in cooking, cultivating and harvesting, we will return to our starting point, after an unforgettable journey among history, taste and culture.

Amazing experience for everybody
Firstly George has excellent communication and gave us clear instructions before the tour. He was very welcoming and provided us with everything we need including dry bags, water and food. We stopped off at several locations during the kayaking sessions and George told us many interesting facts on the way. If you are looking for a fun and safe kayaking tour, don't wait and book now!

Amazing kayak adventure + history
We did Epidaurus and sunken city paddling tour. George was a a great guide. He followed the program- showing us everything that was listed in the trip description. We stopped a the beach for swimming/snorkeling, walked to the little theatre of Epidarus, snorkel at the sunken city. The paddling was easy ( beginners can easely do it). The sites were spectacular. George brought us homemade staffed peppers and tomatos for lunch. The whole trip was amazing. We highly recommend to do it when in Greece

Superb hosts, stunning scenery and plenty of fun
This was one of my favourite parts of our trip to the area last September. I was a little nervous (I'm not very strong) but George was patient with all my questions and made me feel very much at ease.

The trip itself was great - really enjoyable and just right for my limited kayak skills! I loved being over the ancient city, and seeing the theatre.

What makes this tour stand out is the kind, friendly nature of George and Christos. They were funny and genuinely good company. George was even kind enough to give me some beautiful greek oregano to bring home - oh and the olives and beers were a great way to finish a superb day.

Nature, sport, history, art and fun!
It was the first time for me and my girlfriend kayaking and we had a lot of fun! The theatre was beautiful, we ate fresh fruit and did snorkeling first at a bay in Epidauro port then at the sunken city. We ate Greek homemade traditional food, it was delicious! We felt really safe all the time, and the guys were friendly and very fun! We enjoyed every minutes of the four hours together. We warmly recommend this activity!
