This trip is wonderful and not to be missed. We were picked up on time by our guide Telia who is very friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and the site. Be aware though this is not a guided tour around the site, Telia just drives you there and back and gives you lots of useful information and helps you to where you need to be. This suited us as we like to explore ourselves. Telia gave us lots of useful information about the site and a guide pamphlet .
the site itself is a lot bigger than we imagined and you need at least 2 hours to explore it, we were given plenty of time for this and for visiting the museum which is also excellent. All in all a wonderful trip!

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!
