The driver was very kind and took us to Olympia safely and accurately, even though we are Japanese and don't understand English or Greek very well. This may be the cheapest Olympia tour (transportation) that you can apply for with only two people participating. The car was a large sedan and had a very comfortable ride, so even though I suffer from back pain, I had no problems with it. And the car was clean and comfortable. A bottle of water is also included for each person. On the way to Olympia, we arrived at the Corinth Canal early in the morning at 9am, and there was no one else on the bridge except us. We were able to tour the ruins and museum of Olympia for 2 hours. It's not that big so we had plenty of time. After the tour, we were introduced to the restaurant. The price was reasonable and the food was delicious. However, for us Japanese people, the amount of food was so-called foreign food, so we ended up eating way too much. Meal for two was 4000 yen with a pork chop, chicken fillet, lots of fries on each plate, and 2 colas. It's a good deal if it's at a tourist destination price. Thank you to our driver, Mr. Police, for a comfortable long drive. It was a fun day.

We really liked the explanations of the places, because without explanations it is hard to understand the temples. Very good accompaniment to the visit!

Excellent visit and tour guide who was extremely knowledge about Olympia. Due to destination fairly expensive but once in a lifetime visit.

Absolutely fantastic day with our really knowledgeable driver Michael. Prompt pick up, lovely cool car and great service.

Ancient Olympia is stunning. Definitely worth the drive from Athens.
