What you can expect
Our Private Tour is dedicated to the UNESCO world heritage site of Ancient Olympia. After pickup at your hotel, cruise ship or Airport by your private & informative tour driver, sit back & relax in one of our new full extra Mercedes models with free WiFi & bottled water as you set off to enjoy the drive through olive groves & orchards of the rugged Peloponnese countryside before arriving at Ancient Olympia before lunchtime.
Founded in the 8th century B.C. & set in a beautiful river valley you can take the time you need to savour its special atmosphere & explore its extensive ruins which include the places where the original athletes were taught & trained, and enter the tunnel to emerge in the stadium in which they competed. The site also has many buildings & temples to see including the Temple of Zeus and Hera where the Olympic Flame is lit, and the workshop of Phidias, creator & architect of the statue of Zeus which was one of the 7-wonders of the ancient world.
Not to be missed is the modern on-site museum which houses many masterpieces and a large amount of artifacts uncovered from the site, from pre-history to early Christian periods. Its permanent collection includes an almost complete pediment of sculpture from the Temple Of Zeus, a bronze collection & many significant pieces such as the very drinking cup of Phidias, excavated from his workshop & possessing his name in inscription.
Finally, we pay a visit to the impressive Rio-Antirrio suspenion bridge, opened for the 2004 Olympic Games held in Greece.
Exclusive to your group alone this 'go at your own pace' tour is a once in a lifetime experience and is suitable for small groups, couples, families & all ages. To make things hassle-free you can also choose the lunch option to include a delicious 3-Course traditional lunch and an expert on-site Archeological guide can also be included on request.
