A disappointing experience
Dianna_S, Nov 2023
The tour didn't get off to a very good start. We had arranged for a winery visit and were told we would be going to a bee farm (not happening). There were added costs that we weren't made aware off. When we got the winery we were booked in for a taster and were not given the option for lunch, despite our guide having the lunch. However, one can't deny the beauty that Katakolon had to offer.
Great Day in Katakolon-Olympia!

The Olympic ruins were beyond amazing. To walk through and imagine what used to be thousands of years ago is an incredible site. Walking through the museum was a great connection between the ruins and artifacts. Kilo Honey Farm was a lovely treat. The farm is run by the sweetest mother-daughter duo. They welcomed us into their home and treated us to some delicious treats! Our guide, Nasia, was very accommodating, sweet and informative!!
Fun time.

The start of the tour was great. We left early at 8am and got to Olympia before the crowd's got there. After we went to a great little honey bee farm and tasted some of the products they make, I recommend doing that. The lady was great that owns the farm. After that we went to a beautiful gorgeous resort place by the ocean that had a little beach and had food/drinks.
Olympia and Olive farm

Andreas was great, he got our tickets for us, waited patiently for us to come back, then took us to the organic olive oil farm and made the arrangements for us. I highly recommend him!
A whole lot of not much

Basically the tour was just transportation to Olimpia and then to a bee farm. No guide transalates in a ride on a bus where you get very little information. At least the bee farm had more content and more explanation
Response from Host, May 2023
Hello and thanks for taking time to add your review as it helps us become better. The content though of the review is actually an effort of harming a local business as it misses many facts… based on message exchange discussion and the reservation details of what is included in the tour it was made clear that a licensed guide is not included within the olympia site and museum and comes with an extra cost. Also during the ride a tour leader escorted you where she has been speaking exceptional english sharing lot of local and historical information about olympia and the areas visited. While we constantly aim to improve, we realize the review is not objective and has bad intentions. Thank you Andrew
Amazing day!

Incredibly enjoyable day. Our driver took us to Olympia where we had plenty of time to explore on our own. He gave us the opportunity to shop in town for a little while instead of going to the beach, as we were the only family on the tour. We then had the choice to either visit a winery or a honey farm. We chose the winery which became a highlight of our trip. Magna Grecia was family run and we ate a delicious lunch, sampled excellent wine and olive oil as well. We are 6 adults and a 1 year old and we all had an amazing, memory making day.
Great overview of Katakolon

Great tour catered to your interests. Andrew and his son Harrison, were gracious hosts. We they gave us information about the city. They did not go into Olympia with us (which would have been great to have more information about the site), but we had read up on this site before coming. They took us to a honey farm which was possibly as interesting as Olympia! Plus, we got a delicious snack and got to taste amazing honey. the van was well appointed and air conditioned which was very welcomed!
A great day in Olympia
