We had as much fun on this tour as any we took. Vassillios and his driver, Demetrius, were hoots! We only had a short stop in Katakolon, and decided to visit the original Olympic site because we thought we should. Our trip was scenic and entertaining. We asked Vassillios to take us to a small town for a drink at a "local" place. The spot he selected was memorable. We sat by the road under a canopy of vines and were treated to a selection of local meat and vegetables that was incredible. What a fun time!
