A wonderful day in Peloponnese
May 2021
It was a great experience: we saw also the Corinthian Canal and the Isthmus, drived through Peloponnese and walked in Ancient Olympia. Our driver Yiannis is highly professional, a good guide and a friendly host. He knows everything about Greece and its history.

Excellent service, wonderful historic site. The original site of the Olympic games. A vast site (in ruins) but with well laid out information boards and descriptions. Takes a view hours to visit properly. The adjacent museum of artefacts is also well worth a visit with much stone work and also small items, all recovered from the site during excavation.
