Half day Private tour to Olympia (4 hours) - The chance to see the magnificent cultural miracle of Olympia becomes reality!

The most common tour for people visiting the area of Katakolon by one of the plenty of cruise ships that arriving at the area. This tour contains the basic important spots one should visit upon his/her arrival at Katakolon. The tour has a duration of 4 hours and contains the following:
Visit to Olympia (site and museum)
Magna Grecia winery
Saint Andrew beach for a quick swim or coffee.

Most cruise ships that arrive in Katakolon stay there for 5 hours. In this case the most appropriate tour to choose is THIS ONE!!

If your group is larger than 4 persons please contact me to customize the tour and the price for you!


The meeting hour will be based on your ship's arrival. The meeting usually is scheduled to start 15 minutes after the ship's docking at the port of Katakolon.

The drive to Olympia lasts 30 minutes.

The visit to Olympia site and museum takes approximately 2 hours. Useful tip:it is always better to start your visit from the museum and afterwards the site.

We meet up at the exit of the site and the next stop will be the winery. It takes about 10 minutes to get there.

The visit to the winery contains wine tasting and treat with traditional vegetable snacks and small portions of cooked meal. The visit will last 30 minutes.

Next stop is the Saint Andrew beach. The beach is located near the port of Katakolon. It takes 30 minutes to get there from the winery. Nice place to have coffee and enjoy the best sea view of the area. The visit to the beach will last approximately 20 minutes.

The distance to return to the ship is little so the drive to get there should be no more than 5 minutes.

I will be waiting you where all the taxis are parked, specifically at the first park spots. The taxis are located 200 meters away from the gate exiting on the right. Easy to be spoted.

A Recent Review of this tour

Andrew met us at our cruise ship and we had a lovely drive to Olympia, visited the site, and then to a terrific honey farm and finally a stop at the beach for photos. Andrew was very personable and flexible. My only comment, which was not his fault but mine, is that I wish I had booked a private guide at Olympia in order to better understand the history. I would certainly recommend Andrew to other visitors!
