The PERFECT way to go for Olympia
Richard_B, Sep 2023
This is an exceptional tour of Olympia. It started with Zoie meeting us at the pier with a warm smile and a beautiful minibus that was well air-conditioned and in pristine condition. She is an archeologist, which was wonderful for explaining the process of finding the site and for the history. We left with a wonderful knowledge of life in ancient Olympia and a visual sense of the Olympic Games. I cannot recommend this tour more!!! Pro tip: book at 10:00, as the ship’s groups all leave at 8:00. This gives time for the crowds to dissipate before you arrive. We got back to the ship an hour before All Aboard time, which was perfect for souvenir shopping at the port town.

We particularly enjoyed the monastery and beautiful surroundings. Our guide Sophia was very knowledgeable and helpful particularly with my husband who had to use a walker to get around.

My husband and I loved our tour! Both the driver and guide were excellent. I did not feel like I was being talked to by a robot. It was more on a personal level. Highly recommend it.
