We had a party of 8 to pick up at Katakolon and take to the Olympia site and surrounding areas for the day Niki did an outstanding job touring us around to see the site and explained well all of the important points. We had a very nice lunch at a restaurant she recommended. Just a great day !!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great meeting your wonderful family and also had a great time with you. Thank you for choosing me!
What a pleasure it was to have Niki as our tour guide of Olympia. She was extremely knowledgeable and shared many interesting facts with us. We highly recommend her. She has a beautiful warm personality too.

Niki is a wonderful tour guide. She has a lovely personality and is extremely knowledgable about the history and customs of the area. She worked with me to design a tour that met the needs of a diverse group of 8 people within the time limits that we had. I highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. It was wonderful meeting you all and showing you around!

Niki is extremely knowledgeable and was able to bring Olympia alive for our group of 4 adults. This tour was a highlight of our vacation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a wonderful day it was and how much I enjoyed my time with you, you can’t imagine. Thank you for everything!
We had a great tour of Olympia with Niki. She is very knowledgeable and was totally committed to our needs. Most amazing, we felt like great friends after only a few hours together. Hope we can meet again Niki, maybe in Athens!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. Yes I also hope we see each other again soon. Till then have fun!

Paulette PetersonUnited States
Our guide Niki was excellent. Very educated regarding Olympia and Greece overall. There were seven of us on the tour, she met us at the dock in a very nice a/c van that gave us ample room. She allowed us time to explore Olympia and the shopping areas at our leisure while still covering all the important points of Olympia. The crowning treat was a delicious home cooked Greek meal at a private home sitting on a hill top with beautiful views and wonderful hospitality by the home owner.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Paulette. It was more than a pleasure meeting you and taking you around and from the beginning you made me feel like a member of your family. Happy living to all of you and hope to see you again soon!
Madeline R.Chicago, ILLINOIS, United States
We loved our day with Niki. It was a great day with several different and unique sites. In addition to Olympia, we were able to visit an olive press (so interesting), a winery (also interesting) and a short stop at the beautiful beach. Lovely day, great guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Madeline!! I had a great time with all of you and wish to see you again one day!!
William TrochimUnited States
Extraordinary tour. Warm, educational, knowledgeable, flexible. Niki adapted to our needs. We had arranged a tour of the site only, thinking we would see the museum on our own. When we arrived we didn't have time for the museum separately and she was somehow able to seamlessly work it into our itinerary. Good thing - we would never have appreciated the museum as much. Her explanation of the stories in the sculptures was exquisite. Simply the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!!! It was absolute pleasure meeting you! Enjoy the rest of your explanation of Greece the most!

Irene EffUnited States
Excellent Guide, passionate about her country and very knowledgeable. I would recommend her services to anyone who wishes to experience Olympia through the eyes of a local. I had a group of 11 people and everyone just LOVED her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Irene. I absolutely enjoyed being on this tour with all of you and had fun. You are all very special people and hope we meet again one day!
John ShapardUnited States
Niki is six stars out of five if I could rate it that way! Tours are not just about what you learn, but the time and experience you had learning it, and Niki was the best and most fun of our entire trip! She was quick to make changes for the tour given the crowd sizes, and is well respected by everyone who spotted her during our tour. She made us feel like VIPs everywhere we went and kept the attention of our teenagers on the tour which is not easy to do! Bottom line -- we love Niki!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh John... how special you are!! I could tell from the first minute I met you that you were special and same were all your wonderful family members. You and your wife made me feel so comfortable and as if I knew you fir long time. Your kids.....absolute fun. I really had a great time on our tour and can't wait for you to come back and see more together, but also cook for you! Warmest regards, Niki
Linda AshbyUnited States
Niki was a great guide for our family tour. She was very knowledgeable of the history of 0lympia and made it interesting for everyone aged 4 to 71. While on the tour one of our grandchildren wanted a gyro and she found the perfect place. This was a very kid friendly tour. If we return to Olympia we would differently use Niki again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda. It was great and fun meeting all of you and showing you around and would love to have you back again in the future. Best Wishes and happy living to all of you.
Stuart CastleberryUnited States
We visited Katakolon/Olympia on Aug 25th. Niki was waiting at the port for us! She absolutely made our day in Olympia fantastic. Her knowledge of the history of the ancient Olympics was outstanding. We were a group of 4 and although we had a planned itinerary we changed it at the last minute based on Niki's suggestions. She was spot on! All 4 of us enjoyed Niki's personality and professionalism. She is simply the best we have encountered!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Stuart and co. You were a pleasure to be with all along and all day I had the feeling I was touring with dpfriends. Hope we get the chance to meet again soon!!
Paul GaengerUnited States
Niki is a fabulous guide. She knows her subjects cold and has a warm and engaging personality. She was very attentive to one of our participant's physical limitations yet did not have to compromise tour content. It was like being guided by an old friend. The best guide we've experienced.
Niki was a well informed and excellent guide for our tour of Olympia, a pleasure to be with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words. I enjoyed very much meeting you and taking your around.
Mary ChambersUnited States
Niki was really great! She is extremely knowledgeable and made our experience at Olympia so much richer than we would have had on our own. I highly recommend her and find myself still re-telling stories she told us. You won't be disappointed. She makes Olympia come alive and the history is so much more than I had previously understood. Book her!!
Niki was an excellent guide and my family enjoyed our tour of the Olympic site. She told us many interesting facts about the various statutes in the museum and about the life of the athletes and visitors during the games. We enjoyed being able to see the site where the Olympic flame is lit ang being able to run the length of the sports field. Niki "made my grandson's day" as she made him an olive branch crown for him to wear on his 10th birthday.
Lydia LewisUnited States
Niki was very friendly, down to earth yet very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her. And take the added lunch package--delicious food and beautiful sitting.
Michael HaightUnited States
Our entire group just fell in love with Niki. She custom designed a tour just for our group and it fit us perfectly. Her enthusiasm for the area was wonderful to see, and she made it come alive for us. She actually lives in a little town not far from the main tour site, and even gave us a tour of her little town, often running into locals and chatting with them. Great fun. Highly recommend her!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your great review and for appreciating the Greek hospitality. I loved the experience of meeting you and your beautiful family and really hope we meet again one day! All the best to you!
Our group of 7 travellers had Nikki V. for our tour of Olympia. We were picked up at port of Katakolon and she gave a wonderful narrative as we drove through the countryside. We were free to ask questions. Olympia museum and site is amazing but without her insight and history, I can honestly say we would not have understood the site fully - she made it real for us. Nikki enhanced our touring experience. She is a fun, knowledgeable guide who made our day very special. Highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for choosing me and for giving me the chanse to meet some more very nice people! It was my pleasure taking you around and really hope to see you again one day!!
Vicki KellerBaldwin, NY, United States
