You can find their website at: http://www.katakolon-express.com/

HOWEVER - We just booked with them earlier this month. I haven't posted a review yet, but will. In any case, they really messed up, and double-booked their tour guide. We arranged for their group guided tour, and they booked the same tour guide for some other family's private tour at both Olympia and elsewhere in the area. This made for a lot of confused and unhappy people, much delay and anguish, wasted time standing around, and nobody ended up getting what they thought they had arranged. We were able to convince them to refund us our tour cost so that we only paid for the bus ride to Olympia. Bus ride was generally okay, but the A/C didn't work as well as one would have liked for a hot summer day.

Hi All,

Have just spent one day in Katakolon and Olympia from a cruise ship. Would highly recommend using Katakolon Express, as cruise ship tour transfers are very expensive. I reserved 4 seats online two weeks previously for 10 Euros each for the return coach fare without guide to Olympia. Received an email confirmation within 2 days with details of pickup and map.

Just walk out of the port on the right you will see benches and umbrellas and look for someone holding a large orange sign "Katakolon Express to Olympia"

The trip to Olympia took about 40 minutes with an excellent narrative by Maria throughout the journey showing and explaining the local sights. The modern bus had air conditioning and was locked up in local bus park whilst at Olympia. We had 2 hours 40 minutes at Olympia before leaving for Katakolon. The total trip time was 4 hours. We had about 1 hour 30 minutes in Katakolon for sightseeing and shopping before having to board ship. There is a line of lovely bars along the harbour front very close to where the cruise ships dock.
