My husband and I did the 3-1/2 hour tour of Ancient Olympia with another couple three weeks ago. Vasilis was an outstanding tour leader. He was punctual, professional in every regard and extremely pleasant. How fortunate we were to see the site with an actual archeologist, who was able to answer all our questions about both the history of the games and excavation methods.
Setting up the tour with Savina was also a delight. She was extremely patient in responding to my multiple emails.
I cannot recommend this company highly enough.

Excellent tour of Olympia site of first Olympics. Guide was informative, patient (many stops for photos) and had a great sense of humor in which made the experience joyous and entertaining compared to the other tours that were going on around us. Great private tour.

Vasilis was not only very knowledgeable in the history of the area but delivered it in a way that was engaging! He was flexible on how much time we spent in each area and patient with our group (baby). Also has a voice loud and clear enough to understand among all the other tour groups in the areas ;) Great personality, highly recommended!

This was our first time in Greece. Vasilis was knowledgable and willing to answer questions. We were a mixed group. My brother and I love history, but my other brother and my daughter knew less. He managed to keep everyone engaged. He timed our tour for the afternoon, avoiding the morning crowds from the cruise ships, so we had Olympia to ourselves. He also offered to take pictures of the four of us and suggested good places to take pictures which was very nice. I highly recommend him.

Vasilis' knowledge of the history, events and people who have passed through this time honoured sanctuary and UNESCO world heritage site is very impressive. He recites the story of Olympia in an entertaining and easy to understand manner. We felt very comfortable asking questions throughout and the pace of the tour was very much to our liking. The museum is definitely a must see. Our tour took about three hours and was worth every single penny; bring some good walking shoes along. An excellent tour guide who we would absolutely recommend!
