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!
