I contacted the Travel Insiders when I couldn’t get the tour we wanted on our stop in Katakolon. We decided to book the tour of Olympia and also added on Athens. After an amazing day with George and Maria in Athens we couldn't wait for our next tour once we got to Katakolon. When we arrived in port Despina met us and introduced us to our driver. It was great to meet her in person after a month of emailing about the tours. She was as wonderful as I expected. We drive to Olympia where we met our tour guide Elena. Elena was also so great and so caring towards our three year old who after a week of travel was so worn out. I absolutely can not say enough about how wonderful she was! We had a fantastic tour of the Olympic museum and site. After we finished we met back up with Despina and our driver to head to the beach. We spent two hours at the beach which was the perfect ending to our day.
After 4 group tours (2 in Rome before the cruise and 2 shore excursions through the cruise) the private tours were exactly what we needed. We were able to go at our own pace which was perfect for our little one! My significant other who is a history buff also loved having his own personal guide to talk to one on one. He found Elena to be so knowledgeable and thoroughly enjoyed his time with her. I only wish we had used The Travel Insiders on our other cruise stops. These were by far our two favorite days of vacation. Thank you Despina, George, Maria, and Elena for the wonderful experiences!
