Niki V.

Olympia, Peloponnese, Greece

Greetings from Ancient Olympia, The birth place of the Olympic Games invites you to a unique experience in a journey through time from the first Olympic Games until today.

•Would you like a private guided tour of the sanctuary and the archaeological museum of Ancient Olympia?
•Would you like to learn facts concerning not only Ancient Olympia and the Peloponnese, but all of Ancient Greece?

•Are you on a cruise visiting Katakolon port and want information about the local attractions and transportation options?

My name is Niki and I live in Olympia. I love this area and I have dedicated my life to studying Ancient Greeks and the Greek culture. Being a local in Ancient Olympia, but also an official tour guide licensed by the Greek ministry of tourism, I believe gives me an advantage when I will try to convey the Greek spirit. I am also recommended by Rick in his latest edition of Mediterranean Port Guide Katakolon.

A visit to the sanctuary of Ancient Olympia, the original site of the Olympic Games is a moving experience on its own, I would like to make it unforgettable. Let us share the historic heritage of the Ancient Greeks and let the Olympic Spirit guide our path.

I also travel back and forth to Athens, so either you would like a tour starting from the port of Piraeus, or a private tour of the beautiful city and monuments of Athens, consider me one of the specialists you should contact.

Excellent Guide, passionate about her country and very knowledgeable. I would recommend her services to anyone who wishes to experience Olympia through the eyes of a local. I had a group of 11 people and everyone just LOVED her.

I am an official Greek licensed tour guide.
Recommended by Rick Steves and with lots of excellent comments on trip advisor.
I have lived in Athens for many years, before i mooved to Ancient Olympia.
I have many years of experience in touring all over Greece and its archaeological sites, with all different types of groups or individuals.
I certainly still enjoy doing that today as well and i always love getting the chance to customize tours for people who would love to see the best of Greece, in the best and most reliable way, off the beaten track.


There are actually no restrictions, as long as I have availability. I have the right to guide all over Greece and i certainly enjoy the challenge and the chance I usually get, to not only be in a certain area, but to guide everywhere I am asked to!
