Yet another tour with The Travel Insiders. Our guide on this day was very well versed in the Olympic area. She provided both Greek stories and confirmed historical facts about the area. She took us into the museum to see wonderful status found on this site. There was so much to see and detail the day went very quickly. They also took us to a quiet beach away from crowds where we could sit on a back patio of a hotel and have a good lunch and relax with winds off the ocean. This was a wonderful day. Read Less

It was a very hot day and we had been told that the ruins at Olympia were not wheelchair accessible so we had a wander along the harbour and had a couple of ice-creams and ice -cold beers before returning to the ship.

We loved it. Got off at port-turned right and just browsed the shops. We had a recommendation to shop at Christos Jewellery store (as I was after a certain piece). The hospitality was warm and welcoming (drinks provided). The jewellery was handmade, great quality and backed by the ships guarantee as well, and yes you can negotiate the pricing- intact white a it. Janis (the owners son) gifted us presents and also shouted us lunch and drinks at his cousins restaurant Porto. This was unexpected and completely fabulous-pure greek hospitality. We then walked down and hopped on a little"train" for 6 euro each and explored a little further -it takes you down to a beach where you can hop off if you wish and catch the later train cart back.. All in all a fabulous day, stunning weather and way better experience than Santorini. Read Less

The ship docks very far from Olympia. We made private arrangements for a bus ride to Olympia and a private tour. This worked fantastic. We had a great time.

Interesting area & guide was good. Lots of walking/standing which is harder than just walking.

Got a bus near dock to site of Olympic Village for 8 euros return. 45 minute ride through pretty hills and olive groves. Entrance to sit 12 euros. Ruin site large and really impressive. Museum was small but had a lot of artifacts including the famous Hermes and Dionysus sculpture and a Nike winged victory. Only had 2 hours to visit which was not enough - needed 3 hours. Nothing to see in Katakolo. Read Less

We did the 3D tour of the old Olympic site, with the Ipads we could see how it was then and now. Found that most interesting. Out of all the groups that were there, we were the only ones with the Ipads.

Better than Athens. I paid a cab driver 40 Euro to drive us around. Nicer port but not spectacular.

We took a taxi from the port to Olympia (€80). There’s not really much to see here but it was a relaxing end to the trip as you can get a beer or gelato and sit at the port.
