Despina was in the parking area as she had told us. Very amiable and the minibus was quite comfortable. We were driven to a monastery, the Olympia ruins and museum, and lastly, a winery. A great day! The monastery was high in the hills and wouldn't have been accessible via a large bus. The visit and vista were beautiful.

We had hired Elana Aggeli to tour us to Olympia in Greece. She did a wonderful job as our tour guide. From the time we got off of our ship/cruise and found her right outside with a sign with our name on it, to her wonderful air conditioned NICE large van that had space for more than we needed (and cold water too which was very much appreciated and a nice touch!), to her knowledge at the museum and at the ruins, she was terrific. We were a family traveling with 6 of us and she knew how to read our crowd. After Olympia, she took us to a local's home farm for tastings and an explanation on bees and honey etc. It was a great stop. It seems like it was off the beaten path but it was a fun and enjoyable stop for all of us! The family was lovely, the food was delicious and they were very informative about their farm and bees/honey. We loved meeting all of them and seeing the different generations working their farm and producing such yummy treats from it. Then we stopped by a nearby winery which was also lovely. Here for only 8 Euros we had a food tasting and wine tasting that included about 4 wines. They also made some incredibly good olive oil. What a great day. Ran out of town for shopping in the town but had a terrific day touring with Elana and her sister, Despoina Aggeli (our driver!), I would highly recommend them! And, if they ever do come to Atlanta or to Florida for a visit me and my family we would love to host and show them around as they showed us around their lovely town.

Our tour with The Travel Insiders was a memorable day traveling to the highlights of the day!
Olympia was an excellent stop!
Despina, our driver was very informative with her native surroundings and was very delightful with
her kind and gentle service.
Their were six of us and we all were very impressed by her professional service. We had a very comfortable ride thru out the day in the company's mercedes van!
This is the only way to tour with a native of the area, and this is a very reliable company to call upon!

Our tour with The Travel Insiders, a local travel agency, made our trip to Olympia one of the highlights!

After some research, we decided to book with them online and we were very impressed by their prompt response and accurate instructions. This was our first time in Olympia and they turned it into a memorable experience. A nice surprise was the free Wi-Fi on board! The journey to Olympia was very pleasant as Despina, the English-speaking driver, was most informative pointing out the highlights of what we were going to see.
The friendly faces and professional service are only two of the things that would make us highly recommend them to anyone visiting the area!

Our family vacation in Greece
Traveling with kids can sometimes be an ordeal. So this time we decided to book a private tour from Katakolo Port. We were glad to find an agency that organizes kids friendly tours. And Wi-Fi on board - what a relief!!! It turned out to be a tour both for us, the adults, and for our children as it was not only fun but also educational. It was a blast to run the Olympic track and be crowned with an olive wreath made just for us. Who could imagine that we would have such a good time trying to solve the puzzles in the hands-on Archimedes’ Museum in Ancient Olympia.
The Travel Insiders surpassed our expectations. It was all well worth the time and the money. We definitely recommend them!
