Based on some online research we lined up a day tour with Taxi Katakolon for our port day in Olympia. Andreas was prompt with all email responses and the driver provided us was courteous, professional and right on time. Problem was we went with this company because many reviews described how Andreas provided so much insight into Olympia and its... More

I booked the service of Andreas by email and Andreas was able to give me a clear and quick response. When we a group of 4 arrived the port, we have to walk a little bit for about 200-300 m to the car parking area to meet him. The car Andreas drove was clean and we quickly on our way... More

We opted to tour with Andreas on our day in port at Katakolon and are so glad we did! We took about a 6 hour tour. The day started off with a convenient pick up at port. We then were driven to the archeological site of Olympia. We were one of the first families to arrive there and beat all... More

3 of us arrived by cruiseship and enjoyed a tour with Andreas of Olympia Taxi. We found him listed as a link from a tour company we'd used twice before in Athens, PKTravel/Athens by Taxi. We were very pleased. We were met at the port and first visited the site of the Ancient Olympics and the nearby museum. We spent... More

With only 5 hours in Katakolon and the major site of Olympia where the Ancient Games were held, I recommend booking this tour with Andreas. Andreas welcomes you on arrival and whisks you off to Olympia, pointing out sights along the way. You are dropped off to explore Olympia for yourself. The only down side is that there is not...

We booked a tour with Andrea's when our cruise ship docked in Katakolon. I left it up to him on what he thought we should see. From my first contact with Andrea to when he picked us up at the pier was unbelievable. He always responded quickly to my emails and he was on time to pick us up at... More

Our group of four did an all day tour with Andreas this month. Everything about the experience was great--Andreas was very prompt in any email communication and was waiting for us bright and early right at the port exit. We were one of the first ones off the ship and went directly to Olympia. He provided us with information on... More

It was so fortunate that a reputed (and arrogant) Cruising excursion company from UK did not have a place for us to take us on their 4 port excursion and so I looked at Trip advisor in desperation and came across Andreas Stamos's company and was struck by the universal words of praise from all his guests. For once it... More

If you like to do your own thing when travelling, rather than be part of a large group tour, then contact Andreas when you next visit Greece. He offers personalised service for less than you would pay for a large group excursions. I booked Andreas after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. We sailed on the Fantasia from Venice and arrived in...
