We went on tbe VIP Olympia tour with Nefis Travel. Super fun and easy experience. They’ll pick you up from near your hotel and take you and the rest of the group to the destination. From there you have a great your guide showing you around and clearly explaining how things go.
I did the day trip to Olympia this time and wow what an excellent day with Nicos , the site of ruins there are very interesting to walk round and then to the museum , the little village is very quaint …. the ferry crossing was very nice …. I have nearly completed most of the tours but will wait till next year
My family & i went to Olympia with this company, they were brilliant from beginning to end, very polite, caring, punctual & so informative. We were picked up at our hotel early morning to make the journey to the ferry port, how exciting, the ferry was awesome!! Small shops & cafe for breakfast, amazing views of the island, a fantastic experience. Nefis use a lovely modern mini bus, air conditioned, the guide was also brilliant, we were never rushed. Olympia was so interesting, the guides were also experts in knowing where the shade was at the Olympia site! Also there was a lovely relaxing meal stop after the tour, we stoped & had a shopping stroll & a delicious meal & well deserved drinks! Do read up on Nefis website as there is detailed information of the various itineraries that they offer, always superb value for money & all have extra elements that make them stand out above the rest, our family have been on many of their tours, boat trips & very different & unique evenings. Keep up the fantastic work Nefis team. If you visit Olympia wear comfortable shoes, it is a historical site with flat but stony ground.

We both enjoyed this trip as it was great to see the birth place of the Olympics. The ancient site was really interesting and the modern town of Olympia was a lovely little place. It was a joy to experience this in a small group. To have the time and to stand in the birthplace of the Olympic games, surrounded by all that history, was for us a dream come true Our guide Jo was a great help and Maria the official guide is just amazing. What a passion does this lady has for the history. Great to see. Happy we found Nefis travel!

We went with Jackie on the back to the roots tour and we also went to Olympia, firstly both were considerablely cheaper than the ones offered by the main tour operators. secondly smaller groups so you could hear what was being said, both were well worth the money Well done guys keep up the good work loved ever minute.
