Everyone was extremely happy
Kathleen_S, May 2024
The Tour company the guides were outstanding. Everything we did was awesome! I highly recommend this tour.
This experience was one...
Philip_H, May 2024
This experience was one of our favorite parts of our trip to Europe. The honey farm was fascinating, and the family who owns it was extremely friendly. The olive oil tasting was also great, and ended up being a great day. Don't hesitate!
Don't miss
Steven_G, Nov 2023
We learned the history and culture of ancient Olympia. We had the privilege of being with a guide who explained in great detail the history. We then got the chance to visit a family owned honey farm that was truly a highlight. We weren't sure what to expect but this tour far exceeded our expectations
A good mix of everything
Lauren_E, Oct 2023
A good experience overall. We have 4 kids, so the ancient history experience was a bit boring but we enjoyed it. The honey farm was nice. The olive oil was delicious too. The tour overall was a little slow, but suited for all ages therefore.

Thank you very much for taking some time to share your thoughts with us. So happy to read that you enjoyed your Olympia tour, the honey farm visit and the olive oil tasting experience. We wish you all the best and hope to have you back in Greece soon for one even more fab day. Best regards, The Travel Insiders
Highly recommend this laid back tour with Ms Vasso!
Frank_H, Oct 2023
This is a case of a tour escort (Ms Vasso) who made our shore excursion special! - Ancient Olympia was good; but Vasso’s effort to endure our visit went smoothly (eg, arranged a tour guide to accompany us at Olympia) made it special. - the honey farm visit was laid back but informative. Oh, and the honey was delicious! - and we bought quiet a few items at the Olive Oil tasting place, so yes, it was worth a visit. - but it was Vasso & van driver who made our trip! Vasso was engaging, lively & informative, she was a sweetheart! - BTW, we were driven around in a swanky top of the line Mercedes Benz van, wow!
Response from Host, Oct 2023

This is a combination that actually turns our tours into memorable experiences. Warm regards, The Travel Insiders
This was a wonderful...
steven_p, Oct 2023
This was a wonderful excursion to attend. We learned so much about bee keeping from a local woman and it was especially nice to be at her home which she provided awesome snacks. We also bought her homemade lavendar cream which I haven't tried yet.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are pleased to read that you tour was so enjoyable and how much you liked Klio's ( the owner of the bee farm) hospitality . We look forward to seeing you back again soon for even more memorable experiences. Best regards from The Travel Insiders team!!!

This tour was perfect!! Elina was amazing, her knowledge and passion was exciting! The group was only 14 people and relaxed. Johana was very fun and lighthearted. Klio and the honey farm was a perfect introduction to Olympia’s culture LOVED IT ALL.. Thank you from Tennessee ❤️

Wooooo, Woooooo, and a little wine too.
Brian_C, Aug 2023
Fun day trip with nice stops along the way. The guide was friendly, fun and full of great information. The family run operations we visited along the way, were gracious and very inviting. Aside from the "land train" ride being a bit bumpy, it was a very enjoyable experience.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
We are so happy to read that you had a nice time in our region, however we wish to inform you that the " land train" is not included as an activity in our tours, so please check if you have made a mistake and you had a trip experience with another company. Kind regards, The Travel Insiders
Taking it all in

The honey presentation was really good and the tasting that followed was even better! It was a family owned approach and it was authentic.
Response from Host, Oct 2023

Olympic Stadium tour in Greece
Robert_S, Dec 2022
Small group of ten, timely pickup at pier in a private vehicle, local and knowledgeable guides (2), family owned - simply cannot say enough about this team. While we were at the Olympic Stadium we passed a ship's tour of over 100 people and were reminded again about the wisdom of selecting a private tour.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for your wonderful review! We are more than pleased that you enjoyed your day in Olympia. It is rewarding to read that our small group tours are appreciated to the fullest and that we managed to meet your demands. We surely realize how important it is to avoid crowds for a more authentic experience, one of the many advantages when travelling in small groups. Wishing you all the best!!!
Awesome tour
PENNYL_B, May 2022
We wish we had had a guide through Olympia, but ours was not certified. However, we still enjoyed going through the ruins and reading the information. The olive oil tasting and the honey farm were wonderful. Very informative and tasty.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your tour in Ancient Olympia plus the tasting experience as well. It is regrettable not being shown around the archaeological site by a certified tour guide however since this service was not included in your tour package you may always plan a visit in the near future. We will be more than happy to accommodate you as you may wish. Best regards from The Travel Insiders team!!!
Do it!!
Walter_H, May 2022

Family owned and operated you couldn't ask for more.
Lori_N, Nov 2021
We had a great time in Olympia, what history and our guide was wonderful. This is a small family owned business with the personal touch. I would recommend this tour over the big bus from the cruise ship. Door to door service with time to spend shopping in town and enough time for lunch at one of the many restaurants.
A real taste of Greece
Emily_V, Oct 2021
We felt like we had a taste of a real family life in Greece, not just the portion that the busloads of tourist get to experience as they follow around the guide holding the lollipop sign. Every person we interacted with went out of their way to be friendly, informative, and welcoming. We saw generations of family working together to raise bees and make products for sale. Our guide, Helena, was excellent and led the best tour we have taken in Greece.
