Probably would have been helpful to have a guide through Olympia, although at that point we were a little tired of tours so others in the group may have been frustrated as it would have made it a longer tour. The highlight of this day was the honey farm. Everyone loved it. Also, our guide took us to a place for free wine and olive oil tasting. That was great as well.
