We had been to old Olympia before so we decided to just hop off and walk around at the port. We then saw a bus for €10 that was going to Pyrgos. Can’t say it was that enjoyable and there wasnt a lot to see at Pyrgos. If you’ve never been you should take the trip to Olympia at least once otherwise just recommend walking around the port and checking out the local shops and restaurants. ...

Then it was off on our tour. We had chosen to go beyond the included tour to do one called, "Syrtaki, Greek Food & Ancient Olympia." What we got were two tours. One half was the included tour of hell (oops, I meant Olympia) and the other was absolutely wonderful food and dance experience at Syrtaki. Let me explain. The included tour was just to the ruins of Olympia. Don't get me wrong, Olympia ...

We enjoy walking - and this tour had walking - but I'm not into the Olympic experience so looking back would happily have stayed onboard the ship. ...

With 16 passengers it was 20 Euros each plus admissions on an al la carte choice. The Olympia grounds were the ...

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. As we arrived in the morning and only had two hours to enjoy the beach, we just had enough time to take a quick dip before it was time to leave. Would have like more time here. ...
