Great way to see Olympia and the beach!
Jennifer_W, Jun 2023
This excursion was fantastic! Olympia is so much more than you expect. The site is really large and there is so much to see. The ride to the beach was beautiful, and the beach was really nice. Bars, food, and restrooms nearby. Professional and good communication with the tour guides.

Despina Aggeli was a wonderful hostess. There were four of us on our tour, it was perfect to be able to be in a small group. Great balance of Olympia and then to cool off at a beautiful beach.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for your wonderful review. So glad to read that being a part of a small group lived up to your expectations. A dip in the warm, crystal-clear waters of Kourouta beach is certainly the perfect option after your visit the Olympic site. We wish you all the best!!!
