Learned so much more with our private tour of Olympia!

Our guide, Steve (Stavros).who is an archeologist, was the perfect guide. He shared his extensive knowledge about the site; responded to each of our questions with additional information; and opened our eyes as to what Olympia offered at the time. So much more than we had understood it to be! Wonderful, engaging guide who demonstrated his understanding of the importance of Olympia far beyond being the site of the ancient Olympic games and its important role in the history of ancient Greece and Rome. Highly recommend hiring him for your own private tour. We all enjoyed the laurel wreath he provided my grandson as the winner of the 'race' at the ancient stadium. A great day!
