Spirit of Olympia and Magna Grecia Farm
Feeling the Spirit of the Olympics
October 04, 2022
Antonia, our tour guide was knowledgeable, articulate, and fun. Walking around the grounds where the Olympics originated was amazing. Antonia was considerate to all the children and older guests, helping them find shade and a comfortable place to sit. The group size was just right, about 12 total. The Magna Grecia Farm was a pleasant surprise, with a fantastic lunch, and even entertainment. The best olive oils we've ever sampled.
A lovely tour

This tour was great to see some history, and then see the farm and enjoy a lovely lunch and greek dance! The lunch place was well air conditioned which was a perfect break from the heat.
Great combination with great host and food

We had a thorough tour of the original olympic site. The farm was a special treat. Their soaps are remarkable. The food and wine was amazing.

A great outing, despite the rain. Nice tour of the farm and olive production followed by an excellent Greek lunch and entertainment. The guided visit to Olympia was filled with explanations on the history of the Olympic games and tour of the site.

This excursion was great! The first stop was the farm, a wonderful lunch with wine, well entertained by Greek dancing and music. Off to Olympia. The guide was informative and allowed enough time for photos and explained the history very well. The museum was well worth the trip.

Made the best of it

I enjoyed the tour of Olympia to the best of my ability in scorching July heat. Upon completion of the tour, we had some free time to walk around - either around Olympia, the museum, or the adjacent town. We resumed by taking a trip to the Magna Grecia Farm where we were presented with a sampler meal, souvenir shop, and dancing. Afterwards we were educated about how olive oil was made. I was slightly disappointed that we didn't learn anything about wine making and we didn't meet any of the family members (maybe one - but never introduced herself). We also weren't give any time to walk about the farm itself.

This was our largest tour group of all our excursions. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable! When going to see the ruins it’s very hot, be prepared to do lots of walking. We were taken to an olive plantation, Fed Greek food, and saw a traditional dance. We thought it was wine tasting but were disappointed when it wasn’t. Overall experience was good though! souvenirs at this port are expensive.
good tour good food

It was very interesting to see the layout of the Olympic "village" and to hear about how the athletes prepared for the events. Please don't climb on the ruins and don't go out the wrong exit when you leave or you may not find your coach. The trip to the farm vas also very informative and the lunch was very tasty. My wife also had fun doing the greek dance.

This excursion was great! We had plenty of time after our tour of Olympia to walk around and take our photos. Then we were off the Magna Grecia Farm and had a lovely lunch with wine and authentic Greek dancing which they got everyone involved in. We had so much fun!
