Our tour transfer guide was Dora and she was amazing. She picked us up from the cruise port and stopped in town so we could pick up VR glasses from another vendor before heading to the site. We were in a large group and moving a bit slow so we did t get to see the museum but the actual site was amazing. Dora took us to the winery and they had a table set up specifically for our group to eat food and hear about making olive oil. We got to stop and take photos at the beach and then she returned us back to our cruise port. Her van was very comfortable and we had it all to ourselves for our party of 12 so it was like a private tour. Dora was so amazing, we would recommend this tour to anyone but adding the VR glasses with Back In Time was definitely worth it and likely better than having a personal tour guide. Check it out!
Andrew was great!! He was so friendly and helpful!! There were 4 in our group and we had a whole private bus/van to ourselves. It was awesome! They took us to the museum/ruins for about 2 hours. We had a little extra time so we walked to the Olympic museum down the road. The winery/olive oil farm was so neat!! We got a glass of white wine and a snack as they explained everything to us. They asked if we wanted the snack portion 10€ or the meal €15. We ordered the snack, but they gave us the meal. We also got a large glass of red wine (more like 2 glasses), olive oil tastings, and a big platter of food to try. They did a classic Greek dance for us that was so neat! Definitely recommend this tour!!
Andrew was an amazing guide and our driver was fantastic, too! We had a group of 17 people ages 15-60 of family and friends. They met us at the port with a sign for our reservation. The van was clean and modern with excellent air conditioning. They offered us water as a bonus.
First we were taken to the ruins at Olympia. They dropped us near the ticket office and we spent about an hour walking through the ruins and looking at the signs. Amazing! We were early enough that we beat the buses, and we had it mostly to ourselves in the beginning. We then explored the museum--highly recommended.
After that they took us to taste wine (Magna Grecia) and visit the olive farm (Olive Temple). Our tour included tasting, but we liked it so much that we opted to stay longer for the meal and spend less time at the beach. When we entered, we were given a glass of ouzo and an olive bread. Then, we were led to an outside area where they told us about the olives. We toured the Olive Temple to learn about the process of making olive oil. Then, we went to the covered pavillion for our meal. It was amazing! It included olives, bread, wine, Greek salad, spicy feta cheese, olive paste, tzatziki, sausage, cheese, and more. Beautiful setting!
Then, they still gave us a bit of time to visit the beach. We went down to see the water and dip our toes. They got us back to the pier with plenty of time! One of our favorite days on our cruise!
You can only submit a review or rating of an experience to Viator if you were the person who made the booking through Viator. Before publication, each review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information for each of the following criteria: who, what, how, and when. If the system detects something that contradicts our publication criteria, the review is not published. When the system detects a problem with a review, it may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site. In some cases, we will also send you an email asking you to validate your review before it is published. All you need to do is click on the link provided in the email. After publication, our team checks each review reported to it as not meeting our publication criteria. Tripadvisor reviews that appear on the Viator site are subject to the same checks and moderation processes as set out above. It is not necessary to have booked an experience through Viator (or Tripadvisor) to submit a review of an experience to the Tripadvisor site.
Viator wants to make your searches as relevant as possible. That’s why we offer many ways to help you find the right experiences for you. On some pages, you can select how to sort the results we display and also use filter options to see only those search results that meet your chosen preferences. You’ll see explanations of what those sort options mean when you select them. You’ll see some experiences with a “Promoted” badge, which means that the operators of those experiences have agreed to pay Viator more to have their experience highlighted. If you see an Experience Award Winner label, the award is based on average review ratings, share of bookings with a review, and number of bookings through Viator over a 12-month period. The importance of any one factor over any other in a sort order varies, and the balance is constantly being reviewed and adjusted. We’re always updating our systems and testing new ways to refine and improve your results to make them as relevant as possible to meet your needs.
