6 hour shore excursion from Katakolon
For those that seek a different experience my proposal is this 6h tour that empowers the visitor to explore and interact with the cultural and social environment of the land of Olympia.
The minivan is equipped with sound system with microphone and offers WiFi and will wait for you on the port of Katakolo.
I will drive you from Katakolo to Olympia, passing on all necessary information, to prepare you for your visit in Olympia. Once there you will have 1 hour to explore the Olympic Games site on your own. Once done we will drive to the Olympia Land Winery, one of the most famous family operated traditional wineries.
Then we will visit an olive press located at a nearby village where you will have a guided tour to learn how the olive oil is extracted. There you will be offered different types of olive oil to taste along with olives, olive paste spread and fresh warm bread.
Next stop St. Andreas beach. You can swim and unwind on the sunbeds or have lunch admiring the Ionian Sea.
Return to Katakolo

Great tour!!! Loved the winery and and the Oil Press tour! Olympia was great as well! We enjoyed the olive press experience so much we weren't ready (there were 7 of us) to leave...so we opted to not rush and not go to the sea! Very flexible! A wonderfully relaxing day! Strongly recommend!
