Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was an amazing tour. Our guide held together a very diverse group of people with many questions. The archeological ruins were spectacular. The most special part of the trip was the visit to the honey bee farm where the owner was knowledgeable and open about honey bee farming, something many of us never think about. It was also good to move from place to place in a comfortable van to see the Katakolon area. The olive oil tasting was good and offered opportunity for shopping. The tour is long, so be sure you have enough time to take the tour. We were rushing back to the boat, but it was worth it. We seemed to have a better experience than those who merely did the park with a larger tour.

Despina was fabulous in connecting us with a small group tour, all passengers from our cruise. She was so helpful with pre-arrival planning and communication. Our guide at ancient Olympia was informative and very pleasant. The stop at the Olive Oil shop was delightful. We highly recommend The Travel Insiders for your Katakolon/Ancient Olympia touring.

On November 25, 2023 we visited Katakolon and Olympia. I believe Elena was our tour guide. She was excellent. We met the small bus as expected, and proceeded to Olympia. Since it was raining, Elena suggested that we visit the museum first. This was a great idea, since we were able to properly orient ourselves to the ancient site. Elena was extremely knowledgeable about what we were seeing, and immersed us in the 400's BC time period. We learned a great deal about the Greek gods and how they were very important to the original games. The site has been extensively excavated, and many of the statues were in the museum. The rain stopped and we proceeded to the site. It was breathtaking. We walked where the ancient athletes walked. History came to life in the words from Elena.

On the way back to the ship, we stopped at a store that had Olive Oil and honey tasting. A nice place, and the stop was not too long. A great day!

Small group tour of 14. Our guide Elena met us at the port and provided us with so much information about the history of her beautiful country. Our visit of the Olympia site and museums were so interesting, the sites are so big you could spend hours wandering around the grounds and museum. After our visit to Olympia we had a wonderful little stop for olive oil and honey tasting, so many options to choose from and the prices were not bad at all.

We booked two excursions through The Travel Insiders for cruise stops in Katakolon and Athens. Both tours were excellent and we couldn't ask for more knowledgeable guides. Our ship was delayed by 3hrs getting into Athens due to weather issues, we advised them through WhatsAp and they were quick to respond and kept contact with us until we were able to port, they were waiting for us and completed our tour as planned. We would not hesitate to recommend them and will definitely book another excursion with then for our next trip to Greece

Absolutely lovely day. The stop at Olympia Honey Farm is very charming. It is a local home where you are served coffee and wonderful traditional delicacy. The location is beautiful and you learn about honey farming from a family who has been doing this for generations. The olive oil stop is fun as you taste multiple types of oil and balsanic vinegar. A fun easy day with lovely people. Definitely recommend.

Our tour guide, Joan, was very informative about the area as we made our way to the Archaeological Museum and Olympia. Joan handed it off to Maria,, who took us around the museum and shared her knowledge. She then walked with us through Olympia, the site of the first Olympics. She gave us details about the site and then let us try our hand at the stadium.
Joan took the reins as we headed to the olive oil tasting market. It was very nice. All in all, it was a very good day!

Not at all worth the money. Waisted most of our day. Brought us to a gift shop for our olive oil tasting. Felt like a tourist trap

Thank you for the time you spent sharing your thoughts having chosen one of our tours in Olympia. We are quite confused though since you were aware of the inclusions of the tour you booked prior to your visit which included: Pick-up & Drop-off at Katakolon port Tour of the archaeological site (we had some surprise for you offering you a complementary guided tour by a certified guide at no extra cost) The honey farm visit The stop at the local market for the tasting experience of our local produce Admission fees are clearly stated as not included in your tour choice. Therefore, we cannot understand why you had the feeling of a “tourist trap” as you mentioned. Thank you The Travel Insiders

What a great day! The tour guide really knew her history, and took her time explaining everything. There were just four of us on this tour, which really allowed us to have personal attention and care. Highly recommend this tour, and Travel Insiders.

This tour was amazing. We had an excellent "escort" who was very friendly and knowledgeable. There were just 8 in our group, so we had very personal service. The tour of Olympia was so interesting, and the stop for olive oil and wine tasting was in a nice shop with very reasonable prices for souvenirs.
