The tour to Olympia was very good! There was some lack of communication about the pick-up time. It was little later than was posted in the confirmation which led to some concern at first. However we were picked up at the correct location and from then-on it was comfortable and easy travel with our small group of 7 in a Mercedes passenger van. Our tour guide and driver, Telia, was very friendly and knowledgeable, though this knowledge was only available on the drive. It was a little disappointing that after we got our tickets we were left to walk through the site on our own she didn't accompany us as a guide through the ancient site or museum. The roads to Olympia are not easy to navigate so the convenience of the pick-up and drop-off were worth the cost, but I was expecting a full guided tour. The site and Museum themselves are magnificent! It is a quite a feeling to be standing at Hera's Alter and realize that this is the historical origin and where the flame for every modern Olympic game is lit. You walk through the artifacts and structures very close, so you feel the experience of what it was like. Must see!
