The driver Kristos was very patient with our schedule, we had some initial hang ups at the airport. But as soon as the second member of the party arrived we embarked on our journey that took us to the Corinth Canal, Olympia, Sparta, and the Acropolis. Our drive out to Olympia was filled breath-taking scenery of the mountainous geography of Greece. Our guide Achilles was very informative and being able to immediately connect with his passion about the areas we visited quite enriched our experience. Once at Olympia we explored every part of the extensive site. Achilles explained the use of every part of the site and through his description was able to visually recreate for us how business would have operated. The Olympic arena was a treat. While in Olympia we spent the night at Hotel Europa. For couples I would highly recommend this hotel as Eleni did for my boyfriend and I. it is family run and quite romantic. In the morning we departed for Sparta or Sparti. We stopped periodically to take pictures against a very rugged background that appealed to adventurers like my partner and I. One memorable stop for a history buff like myself was viewing where Alexander the Great paused and said taking Sparta was no longer a priority.Or hearing about the pillar that he erected that bared the name of all the cities he had conquered except for Sparta. Our guide Achilles was very engaging and shared the rich history of the area. In Sparta we explored the Spartan theater that was still under excavation. I was thrilled that I could brush up on my reading of ancient Greek and Modern Greek, Achilles helped me greatly with that. On our way back from Sparta Kristos and Achilles went the extra mile and took us around some sights in Athens on the way to the Acropolis. Achilles could see my utter excitement to finally have reached the Acropolis and took measured steps to ensure I gathered all the treasure in history that was to be had there. My partner and I as history buffs thoroughly enjoyed our time in Greece and that was in part due to the great efforts of Kristos and Achilles. We would definitely be recommend this company to anyone who would like to truly tour Greece for an awesome price. Kristos and Achilles make a great team.
