Arriving in this small town in Greece by cruise ship most visitors want to tour Olympia. We have several tours available from simple transport in a lux class bus from Katakolon to Olympia for 20 Euro round trip, children 14 Euro babies free.
You will be met by an escort who will also narrate an informative commentary during the 30 minute drive to Olympia. After your visit to Olympia Archeological site and museum's your escort will be with you to assist when ever you need them. To have a friendly person nearby ready to help you with translation or advise where to find the best bargains can be very reassuring.
Then there are the Private tours where you choose your exact itinerary, this is an excellent way to spend a few hours or a full day perhaps going for an authentic lunch in a traditional taverna or Wine tasting or swimming at a local beach. The cost for a private tour will depend on the itinerary you choose but its safe to say it will be cheaper and better than your cruise ship shore excursion. Price guide: 25 to 35 Euro per person in a luxury class Mercedes Benz minibus.
