We booked a private tour with Andreas Stamos.What a fabulous time! We started our tour from Katakolo to visit Olympia, then he recommended an excellent restaurant for lunch and some shopping. Andreas recommended a winery where we had our own private tour & tasting. On the way back we follow the route through villages and visit a nice monastery.The view was amazing.We were the only ones there.I highly recommend the tour with Andreas , he will give you options, to visit and what you’d like to do. It was the best tour where I have done. Highly Recommended
Great experience in Olympia
We were on a cruise and visited Katakolon on October 7th and Andreas was our driver. He was always quick to respond to my emails as I had any questions about our tour. We were 7 of us and Andreas was waiting us at the meeting point . First stop was Olympia, where Andreas had booked a professional tour guide .Maria was waiting for us to tour the site. She was amazing. It was raining but Andreas had umbrellas for all of us in his mini van. Afterwards we visit at Klio’s Honey Farm, for tour and tasting then on a scenic drive up into the mountains to visit a nice Greek monastery.We had a wonderful day and I highly recommend him.
A great day in Olympia with Andreas
My family of 6 had a beautiful day tour of Olympia with Andreas Stamos. Andreas was friendly and very easy to work with. We were on a cruise in katakolon and our time was quite limited. Our tour included the visit of the Archaeological site (Temple of Zeus, Temple of Hera, Leonidaion, Phillipeion, Palaestra, and the stadium). We also visited the Archaeological Museum and the Museum of the Olympic Games. Magna Grecia Olive Farm was the highlight of our tour. We were greeted with a glass of the farm’s white wine and were taken on a guided tour in the olive mill areas.The guide explained all stages of processing, extraction and storage of the olive oil. We were able to sample many different varieties olive oils, which was followed by a typical lunch. Andreas suggested a beautiful beach, Agios Andreas with amazing view .
Thank you, Andreas, Always we will recommend your tour.
Tour of Olympia and Kremasti Monastery
With Andreas we felt like driving around with family. It was extremely hot this week and we had our two year old with us. Andreas took us to the best sights, no lines, and the locals restaurant. The best food we had our entire trip!
Katakolon to Olympia private tour
Me my husband and my parents were on a cruise.We had very limited time in Olympia, so we booked Andreas in advance. It was a great choice! Andreas was waiting for us on the meeting point and took us to Olympia to Archaeological site. The weather was warm but Andreas had cold water for all of us and gave us a guide book with the history of Olympia .He also helped us to buy the tickets and waited for us while we were in archaeological site and museum.After that Andreas took us for shopping in new Olympia and recommended us a great restaurant. During all the time we were in the car, Andreas told us about the history of the Olympic Games and we had a great talk. We are very happy with Andreas the experience and highly recommend!
Thanks for Being a Great Host
We recently came back from a cruise and book a tour with Andreas. We booked it about 4 months prior to the cruise. Responses were quick. Our tour was great! It was a way better alternative from cruise excursions. Our tour was private and personal. We were comfortable. We saw the ruins, a monastery, had a quick lunch then back to the ship. Andreas was so nice. If we go back to Olympia, will definitely use Andreas again! Thank you for a great experience!
