We were picked up right on time and made it to Olympia before all the tour buses arrived. On the way there, we were told interesting facts about the area. All in all, a great tour! Thanks so much.

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!

Christos was a great tour guide for our visit to Olympia! He showed us the back roads to Olympia from the port and shared lots of great information and tips about his homeland. Christos was very organized and had a great luxury van with a wireless mic that allowed those in the back to hear with out difficulty. Christos showed us so much more than we expected in Olympia. It was a lovely day. Thanks, Christos!

Christos was an excellent tour guide. He was gracious, kind and extremely informative about the history and culture of the places we visited. We felt welcomed by him, and taken care of throughout the tour. He often would ask us if everything was fine, and he showed concern that he wanted us to have a good time. My father of 93 years was on the tour and he enjoyed it greatly. Christos was caring in making sure that my father was comfortable. I recommend Christos highly as a tour guide!

Christos was great! The tour was entertaining, we loved the personal touch of the olive press tour and the winery in addition to the obvious attraction of Olympia. Would do this tour again in a second!

Christos was a very informative guide - he took us to where the first Olympic games were held - I got some good photos walking around and we also got to see the museum which was very interesting - we could have done with more time there as there was so much to see and explore. Enjoyed it thoroughly. Will definitely book with Tours by Locals again. Martinique from Cape Town, South Africa.

Christos was knowledgeable and went out of his way to make our day enjoyable. We would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rosemary, Thank you for taking the time to publish your comments about your tour. I aim to create a memorable experience for my guests and I am very happy that you have enjoyed your tour in Olympia and all of the attractions that were included.
Fantastic tours with a genuinely great guy! Chritsios is a fantastic guide and such a nice guy, due to a misunderstanding with the booking, we understood that we didn't have to take towels to the beach as they would be provided. However this was not made known to christios, when he found out we didn't have any towels, he dropped us off in the beach and went and bought us some! Great guy!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rosanna for taking the time to write this review. It was a pleasure meeting you all and I hope you will return back home with a memorable experience from Olympia. If you visit Greece again in the future, feel free to contact me.

Christos, Was on time outside of ship with sign with our name on it. Olive press neat, but not in operation, just a walk through of how they do it, the company was awarder #1, but a long ride. He was friendly and very accomdating, van was clean. J&K BECK 5-3-2016

Mirilia was a very informed and pleasant guide. She was on time and very accommodating to our family. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Olympia and the lunch at a local greek taverna was so much fun. The food was excellent and the dancing a blast. I would highly recommend using Christos or Mirilia for and visits to Katakolon.

If you are considering a tour if your cruise stops in/near Katakolon or the Olympia area, go with Christos. He is amazing and the tour absolutely wonderful. The 8 of us were very comfortable in his beautiful van. Visiting the Olympic site was magical; tasting wine at Olympia Land Winery with Amanda was great; seeing (and enjoying) a family-owned olive press and the pride of mama and her son was much fun (and yummy). Our last stop was St. Andreas Beach and a perfect ending. You won't be disappointed!

Our tour with Christos was wonderful. I am mobility challenged and he went out of his way to make it easier for me to see the sights. His knowledge of the area is incredible and we enjoyed listening to all that he had to say. He also found a wonderful, out-of-the way, eaterie with local food and wine that was soooo good. Definitely a tour/guide to recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments. I am very happy to hear that I met your expectations and that you had a memorable experience. I hope to see you in Greece again soon.

A good tour to the original site of the Olympics with a knowledgeable guide and a nice clean vehicle. Lunch afterwards was excellent in a very nice restaurant with a lot of choices from a buffet. Drinks were included.
