Our final stop on our Greek island cruise on Jewel of the Seas was in Katacolon. Vasilis greeted us (five adults and five teens) as we departed the ship. Let me just say that Vasilis is a wealth of information, humor and personality. From our drive to ancient Olympia to the amazing ruins, he made the tour fantastic. He is also an archaeologist. Needless to say, we were all fascinated. My kids said that the Olympia tour was their favorite out of everything in Greece and in Rome. That alone should tell you something. I can't recommend Vasilis and his Guide me in Greece Tours enough.

We went couple of times before to Olympia, but we were learning lots of new things thanks to this guy, Vasilis, that is also an archaeologist and teacher :)
Really 100% recommendable to visit the ancient ruins and museum with Vasilis; his intelligence sense of humor and hospitality will make this tour-guide very interesting and unforgettable!!
Looking forward for a next trip there!
Alex.

My wife and I plus two friends were collected promptly from our ship in a private car and taken on a historic tour of Olympia with Vasilis. He was a very knowledgable guy with a good sense of humour. We enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend him as a better option than a crowded, expensive ship's tour.

Our Erasmus + group enjoyed a lot the tour in Olympia by Vasilis...he was very nice and kind and involved us very much with his interesting and animated explanations about the history of this wonderful archaeological site! If you need a guide in Greece, I can definetely suggest Vasilis because not only he has a great cultural knowledge but he is able to be empathic both with people and places which have an meaningful history...grazie caro Vasilis!

We made a special trip by sail boat from Lefkas to Olympia for our summer holiday . We did not know what to expect and there was very little to help us understand the place on arrival. Vasilis gave us an animated and amusing enthusiastic explanation and guide to the site that added so much to our experience and brought the place to life. Efkharisto poli !
