We arrived by ship and decided to do these tours instead of the ship ones. These are much better and they pick you up right on the pier and bring you back in plenty of time for your departure. These women really make the tours worthwhile as they tell you all the history as you move through each stage of the sites -- Olympia and The Acropolis.
Greece was like heaven -- the food fabulous restaurant in Olympia , the people and the amazing history of this land. I think of my trip to Greece every day and cannot wait to return to this beautiful country. Thank you for your nice comments about us and the places you visited. We are always trying to give our guest an authentic experience of Greece, try the local cuisine and get in touch with locals as much as possible.
Our family of five- two adults and three teenage sons- recently returned home from a perfect 10 day trip to Greece. We had hesitated as to whether we should travel to Greece given the way the economic situation is portrayed in the media, but we are so thankful that we persevered! The people, food, and culture were outstanding.
Everyone we encountered was so smart and hardworking- and displayed such pride and excitement to show us their beautiful country. We planned the entire trip with Niki Vlachou of Olympic Tours months before our visit.
She knows and loves her country and was able to craft an itinerary that met our needs- travelling with three teenage boys. EVERY guide and driver she arranged were knowledgeable and passionate about their subject matter. But what struck us most was their pride in country, kindness, and ability to explain history to make it come alive. Niki is the expert at Olympia and gives an incredible sense of what life was like during the early Olympic Games.
Niki is simply the best. We learned so much more at each site than if we had travelled without a guide. I would recommend Niki and her entire crew of guides and drivers without ANY hesitation. Thank you for sharing your experience and comments with the TripAdvisor community. Didn't want to leave Greece. It was degrees on the friday we visited Katakolon and Olympia. But Ioanna our tour guide was ahead of schedule to meets us, as was our driver and the air conditioned very clean van.
She led us about a half hour from our cruise ship port and educated us along the way as she took us to the incredible ruins of Olympia. She knew how to facilitate our tour so as to avoid crowds and to move ahead so as not to overheat or lose interest. She knew so much and her enthusiasm was contagious. After the tour she gave us some free time to enjoy local cuisine and checked on us to be sure we were all ok.
Her knowledge was amazing. She is a joy and we highly recommend her as a tour guide. My husband pre arranged the tour with Niki who was always responsive, friendly and assuring.
Thank you for your kind words. I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour. Because my teen son already knew a significant amount about the subject from school studies, I wanted more than just the average guide. Niki was certainly that. She was great! She returned my email promptly and was very easy to work with via email. She was our guide for a morning touring Ancient Olympia and the Museum and she was awesome.
She definitely knew the site and was very informative but she was also just fun to be with. Both my son and I had a wonderful morning. She related very well with him and knew more than he did, which sounds silly, but is very important. I only wish we had had a longer tour! Although by the time we left the site for the museum mid morning it was already getting hot and crowded. When we started, right when the site opened, we had the place to ourselves.
Niki also arranged for guides at 3 other locations. He too was great. He even helped with our luggage hotel had many, many steps. He knew the area very well. We had another wonderful and informative day. Nemea was very definitely worthwhile I decided I wanted to add that location, mid tour, and Niki made it happen. She also was just excellent. I definitely recommend Niki herself and both of her guides who worked with us. I apologize for the delay in this review. Thank you very much for your beautiful review and for having appreciated our efforts to offer you a memorable experience at every destination you visited.
We booked two tours on short notice with Nikki. Both were excellent and a good value our tour guide Joanna in Santorini was very informative and delightful. Our guide in Athens mina was equally informative and very well organized. I would highly recommend this tour company for tors in Olympia Santorini and Athens. Thank you for your nice words.
