A Recent Review of this tour

This was an excellent trip. Andrew takes you around to the sites (Olympia, oil farm, honey producer, etc.) and the experts tell you all about it. Olympia ruins were worth the trip alone. We had a great time going through the ruins and the museum. The oil farm (lead by the owners son) where he explained how the oils are grown and harvested was excellent. The tastings of olives and assorted olive oils was great. And then we had a meal that was delightful. The honey farm was a fine ending to our tour.
