Lydia our guide was waiting for us. She was excellent guide, very informative and a warm personally. We were amazed at how large Olympia was. I would differently ask for her again.

Tour was well organized and tour guide was very knowledgeable. Only issue was meeting the tour guide as we came off the boat. Directions were unclear and he held a small sign. Should be better directions or more accurate gathering point.

We had a good guide, and despite the crowds, the site was large enough that one didn't feel overwhelmed. We liked their approach to the site. Not trying to totally restore it, but glorying in the ruins, really, and re-building a small amount so we could see what it would have looked like. Although it was hot, there were shady places to take refuge. Good washrooms, always a plus. Also the town of Olympus was charming. Wished we had had a bit more time to check it out.

I was worried about this excursion because we were not able to find the bus. However, once that was sorted, it was a wonderful excursion. The tour guide was so engaging, entertaining and knowledgeable. Even the 30-40 minute bus ride to Ancient Olympia seemed to fly by as she shared stories. Once there we had a wonderful time exploring the site. Even our 6 and 8 year old children found the day very fun and interesting! When the tour guide asked our son what he thought of the tour he said, "That was WAY better than I expected!"

This was a fabulous walking tour. I was thrilled to learn of the ancient Olympics and see the birthplace of the Olympics. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided so much history about the evolution of the Olympics and the athletes.

My wife and I really enjoyed our tour of the old Olympic village. Our guide was very informative and interesting. We learned a great deal about Greek history, agriculture, and customs while traveling to and from the site. There was plenty of time to take pictures after the tour and get a wonderful lunch in the town before heading back to the ship.
It was very cool that we visited Olympia while the 2016 Olympics were going on! Fascinating to see the original site of the Olympics, guide provided excellent info on the history, and the museum was fantastic!

It was great seeing the ancient ruins of Olympia. Wished we had more time to visit the museum and walk around the town. Guide was very knowledgeable.

This tour was great to understand how the olumpics used to be. Our tour guide was wonderful - very knowledgeable and had lots of tidbits of information to provide. Wished we could of stayed longer to appreciate the place but alas, we had to get back to our cruise ship. This is certainly a ""must see"" tour.
