A Recent Review of this tour

Telia was a wonderful guide for our family of 7 (ages 9 - 70). She read our group beautifully and adjusted the tour accordingly. She gave us a wonderful overview of Ancient Olympia on our drive there, and waited patiently while we took our time exploring. Per our request, she found us the most beautiful beach and we all enjoyed lunch and a wonderful afternoon swimming in the bluest waters. Telia is very knowledgeable about Greek history, and she truly loves her country. Highest recommendation!
