Charles BidondoEl Dorado Hills, CA, United States
Vassilios deserves more than a 5 star rating for this wonderful tour. His knowledge of the area is most impressive and his ability to be flexible allowed us to visit areas that were outside of the normal tourist stops. The highlight of the day was a delicious lunch at the home of a friend. Drinking wine on their patio overlooking the sea and enjoying local dishes will be a memory forever.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Charles & Peggy it was so fun that our tour started into the rainstorm something very rare in our area. Thankfully, I have many aces into my pocket, as the amazing indoor tour into capital’s old market before sun shines again! It was so nice, as well, to share with you and your friends so beautiful moments into the overlooking veranda for a delicious homemade lunch.

Vassilios planned the best day visiting Olympia and the surrounding area. We will definitely use him again! We were running late and he even called the Taverna we were visiting and pre-ordered an amazing meal. Fantastic Day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Theresa, It was a pleasure for me to guide your group in our beautiful area. First of all, I enjoyed our short hike on the top of Kronion hill with the panoramic view all over Olympia. I also hope to found my adorable partner for the archaeological site useful and fun! And most of all, I enjoyed all of those reserve wines, in this amazing spot winery, into this secret valley with vineyards all around!

Vassilios did an excellent job communication with us. He gave us good instructions on where to meet him when our ship docked. He was able to adapt the tour so we had a good blend of cultural and historic information with time for shopping and lunch. He has a great field of knowledge about Greek history and on the ride to Olympia he did a nice overview of Greek history and the importance of the Olympic games in both ancient and modern times. He is highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a really pleasure Dale, to show you some awesome spots of our beautiful region and I really enjoy your generosity to share lunch with your lovely party over the amazing bay. People like you really inspire me, giving me the motive to provide more and better services!

We had as much fun on this tour as any we took. Vassillios and his driver, Demetrius, were hoots! We only had a short stop in Katakolon, and decided to visit the original Olympic site because we thought we should. Our trip was scenic and entertaining. We asked Vassillios to take us to a small town for a drink at a "local" place. The spot he selected was memorable. We sat by the road under a canopy of vines and were treated to a selection of local meat and vegetables that was incredible. What a fun time!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda, you and your adorable friends you were a truly entertainment company with plenty of knowledge for our tremendous history and culture. I’m glad that you found enjoyable our tour and you liked the authentic aspect of local life that you shared with us and you appreciated the uniqueness and exceptionality that exclusive our tours.
Ellen D.United States
Vassilios did an amazing job with our tour! He was informative, organized and very thoughtful. It was our best day of the vacation. I would highly recommend touring Olympia with Vassilios. He has great ideas for tours. The day was perfect!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ellen! I’ m glad that you liked my ideas. I also like to be with interesting people who eager to learn and feel the aura of blessing land of Olympia. I apologize that we couldn’t find enough time to enjoy a dive into the Ionian Sea as we had so many things to do in so little time. So, I really owe to you a second TOUR. Just call me when you come back! Greetings to Matt and kids!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kenna for your great ratings. The most important for me is that comes from Californians, who live in a pretty much the same environment with similar climate, so they have very strict standards of judgment. That gives me the courage to continue my effort, always trying to offer the best services for my guests. Thanks a lot and greetings to your family!

Vassilios was a top notch host at Olympia! He went above and beyond for our group. The experience he offered was the highlight of our week in Greece. Our group of 7 travelled to Olympia via a cruise ship. Given our time was limited, we wanted to see the ruins, go to the beach and have a "picnic luncheon." The luncheon was especially noteworthy! Vassilios, his wife Amanda and another friend worked hard to make us authentic Greek dishes. We loved every minute! We had the best experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Karen, you were the most amazing guests I’ve ever had. For few hours that our tour lasted, I thought that I was playing in a movie, with so many charming and energetic ladies around me. I’m so glad that you enjoyed our hospitality and you’ve been so contented with so simple things for us, like our homemade meal over the scenic beach. Definitely, our tour will remain unforgettable forever.
