We took the beach excursion here as a last minute decision. The ship crew was very nice to get us on at the last moment.

We joined together with some others from the ship and took a taxi tour that was fantastic. We visited Olympia -old and new. There is really not much to see in the new part of Olympia but the old part and the ruins are amazing and the museum is fantastic. We enjoyed wine tasting at a local winery and finished out the day with a cocktail a beautiful beach spot. ...

It rained while we were going out of the gangway. Katakolon is like Ocho Rios. Unless you take the an excursion to Olympia, there's not much to do near the cruise terminal. If the weather is great, you can go to the beach which is nearby. ...
