Our driver Chris picked us up close to the cruise port. We had a car to take us around. We went to Olympia first which was good as coaches turned up soon after our arrival so we were able to get ahead. Chris suggested doing the ruins first so that we could go in the air conditioned museum afterwards. It was a very hot day but that is what you expect in August. It takes about 1-1.5 hours in the ruins and then another 1-1.5 hours in the museum. After our time here Chris took us to the honey farm. I must admit I didn't really want to go there but I am so glad I did, it was so interesting. I never knew those little bees had such complex and clever bodies and lives. It is a family business passed down through generations and it was brilliant, such friendly people and we got to taste the honey. I recommend it. Then Chris drove us to the beach by the cruise port which was a lovely little area. Chris gave us lots of information along the way and we felt safe with him. All in all a great trip, well worth the money.
