“Andrew was an outstanding guide and his tour was our highlight of Greece”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

My wife, two sons and I took the tour with Andrew a few days before Christmas. His tour was the highlight of our cruise. He customized our itinerary based on our interests (we skipped the winery and visited a monastery). We were intrigued by all of the Olive groves and Andrew has his own grove and is quite knowledgable. He even made an impromptu stop at a press and we had a short tour and walked away with a bottle of fresh olive oil which is one of our favorite souvenirs from our trip.

“Family Cruise from Venice to Greek Islands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Our family of 17 was cruising from Venice to the Greek Islands at the end of July. My sister-in-law found Andrew through Trip Advisor and booked a car for her family of 5. I emailed Andrew to ask if he was able to recommend another tour for my family and my other sister-in-law's family and he was able to secure 2 additional taxis for us and we were all able to tour Olympia together. The service was absolutely amazing and the personal service that we were provided made this port one of our favorites! Andrew kept in touch with us prior to our cruise via email and was there waiting for us right as we exited the ship and even though our tour was only supposed to be for 5 hours it was extended to over 6 hours and he did not ask for any additional money from us; of course we gave a very gracious tip to make up for this additional time he spent with us. We could not have asked for a better way to spend our first time in Olympia! The tour books the drivers provided us of the Olympic ruis were so very helpful and the tour of the Olympia Land winery was just absolutely amazing!! We had a wine connoiseur in our family who was thoroughly impressed with the winery and the wine itself. We all purchased wine to bring back to the ship and States with us and were disappointed to find that we cannot purchase this wine again - unless we travel back to Olympia. I just cannot say enough good things about Andrew, Nick and the other drivers we had for our private tours!! We even recently received an email from Andrew wishing a happy holiday season and it was sent as a response to all of the back & forth emails from our trip planning back in July! Very impressed!!!! I highly recommend Andrew and his tour if you ever are lucky enough to get to Olympia!! Thank you Andrew for making our trip so very memorable!!!!

“Andrew was awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

We visited Olympia via our ship in the beginning of January. Andrew was great - his English was perfect. When we arrived at the Ancient ruins, he had one of those transparency before and after books for us to view when touring the grounds. Because he is not a guide, he could not come in with us. After the Museum, he took us to a very small family run winery. Then, on to an olive press for a very short visit - but, so cool! After that, we stopped in a lovely spot overlooking the sea for some hot drinks. It was so beautiful and peaceful. We had a great day.

“The very best possible visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

We had a wonderful experience with Andrew and his staff during a recent visit to Katakolon and ancient Olympia in Greece. He was extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Our private tour allowed Andrew to show us multiple sites which the average tourist will never get to experience. He also understood that we had limited time coming off the tour boat. I would highly recommend him and his services to others in the future and my next visit to Olympia will start by contacting Andrew first. Excellent English spoken and understood. Wonderful experience, top notch service!

“Great day out!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Many thanks to Andrew and Nick who looked after us back at the end of October.
We had an amazing time!
We were met off the boat and taken to the ruins at Olympia which we stayed for a while, but travelling with young children it was great to have the choice to move OK n when they got bored!
We were then taken to the family run vineyard and treated to some wine tasting and bread and olives and cheese and salami which kept the children happy whilst we enjoyed some wine!
Out of our whole cruise this was the highlight of our trip!
Many thanks to you all!!!
