I booked Andreas after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. We sailed on the Fantasia from Venice and arrived in Katakolon with only 6 hours to see the place. There were five of us, so we had arranged 2 taxis with Andreas. After walking from the boat to the gate, we saw a huge number of taxis and a sea of people milling around, but as we got closer we saw Andreas standing right at the front with a sign with our name. We were greeted warmly and quickly installed in the two Mercedes and were on our way.
Before we set off, Andreas confirmed our preferred activities for the day and so we headed first for Olympus. During the drive he talked about the areas we were passing through and made it a very interesting trip. On arrival at Olympus were were given very clear instructions about entry into the ancient Olympic site and the museum and given a great guide book to follow, as well as instructions about where we would be met afterwards. We spent a couple of hours exploring the site and found the museum really good - an excellent small collection that was do-able in a short time.
As soon as we left the museum, Andreas was there to lead us back to the cars and we set off for the town, where we enjoyed an hour wandering the streets and enjoying the cheerful banter of the shop keepers. We then headed to the beach where we were taken to a lovely cafe overlooking a spectacular cove - it felt really Greek!. The trip had been organized so that we ended up only a five minute drive from the wharf, so that we never felt stressed about being back on time.
It was a great day, Andreas is a great guy who offers a very professional service.
