I would recommend anybody who is visit the Archaeological Site of Olympia to go for the VR experience. My partner and myself (both nearly 30) enjoyed it so so much. Definitely a highlight of our trip.

You really see what the Site used to look like and what they used to do there. It is super interactive and you learn lots. You are guided through the Archaeological Site of Olympia in a simple and educational fun way. You learn loads but there is no information overload.

Definitely would recommend this to everybody, young and/or old and anything in between. I am 100% sure that my experience of the Archaeological Site of Olympia would have been very different without the VR glasses (not in a positive way). #

If you are visiting the Archaeological Site of Olympia this is a must!

If they would offer this at any other Archaeological Sites, I would happily pay and use it every single time!

The self-guided VR Olympia experience was astonishing and amazing. I cannot recommend it highly enough, it brought the entire site to life! It was so well put together with just enough information plus fun things like seeing the virtual athletes compete. Very easy to book online and great customer service, you pick the VR up in town and it is then ~10 min walk to the site entrance. Do not miss this!

Excellent experience. A wonderful way to leverage on technology to learn the history.
The tools provided are extremely easy to use and provide a perfect replica of how the buildings and area looked like 2500 years ago, giving info and details for all the monuments.
Tip: whe you go to the museum, you can compare the Methopa of the temple with the virtual reproduction shown during the tour. Fantastic!!

Incredible experience. Seeing Olympia at its prime with athletes training among the monuments was a great addition to seeing what is left of them today. This truly adds information and fun to a visit of ancient Olympia.
Also, the team is super competent and friendly explaining the goggles etc.
10/10 - could hardly have been better.

We loved it! A great way to br guided around and ‘see’ Ancient Olympia as it was. We were a couple and shared one headset, which was enough. We took our time but even so, there was over 50% battery life remaining at the end. We’ll worth €20.

As an architect, I'm familiar with visualizing buildings. These glasses are very user-friendly in giving everyone a real sense of how these sites looked 2500 years ago. There are also lots of fun features that would appeal to young and old. Don't forget to shout in the Echo Hall!

Our family of 5, 2 adults and 3 children ages 9, 12 and 14 all used the VR for the first time for our Olympia tour. It was a very different experience compared to what we had done at other ancient sites and all of us were engaged and enjoyed it. It brought the area to life in a new and interesting way. I would recommend it to families

Amazing experience and content that puts you in the middle of the all the historic scenes. One moving content file of the running is really nice. Highly recommended and hope the sales will produce more income to increase and expand content.... They should do this on more sites like Delphi.... The guy who rents the VR glasses is very helpfull!

Highly recommended experience. I visited the site both with and without the VR set and I definitely recommend the former. Despite being an amazing place to visit anyways, the VR brings you closer to the original landscape, offering the opportunity to witness how it really was at the time. Achilleas, the owner, is extremely helpful and polite. Go for it.

Fantastic experience a must do
Visiting the ruines with the Virtual reality glasses was a great experience. The images a accurate and realistic. We visit the site in the morni g and came back in the evening with the glasses. Great great great.
Price is affordable 20€
The usage is easy
The explanation in the boutique is really clear.
The children axperience this as a perfect mix of future technology to understand the past.

It is a pity that those glasses are not proposed at the entrance of the site.
