Reviews for this offer


It was a well organised tour. The pick up was on time, even super punctual I would say which is not always the case with other tours/agencies. The communication with the travel agency was also very fast and we got tickets sent by email. The guide on our bus was super helpful. The local guide at the museum gave a very interesting presentation. We had one hour of free time after visiting museum and archaeological site which was also enough for restoring powers on one of the hottest day this summer. Thank you!



Nice tour with good and prepared guides, both in Olympia and on the bus. I would have enjoyed spending more time in the Archaeological Park, unfortunately we only spend 1 hour and half there and we didn't see all the area. Anyway Olympia is beautiful and I recommend the tour. The provider was very kind to set a pick up location suitable to us.

Your experience


  • Discover the place of the Ancient Olympic Games
  • See one of the Seven Wonders of the World
  • Seize the opportunity to explore the village of Olympia on your own


To start your day trip you will be picked up early-morning and taken by coach to Zante Town. Then you will travel over to the mainland of Greece by boat at approximately 08:00 am, taking about one and a quarter hours. The boat provides a snackbar and you can also find toilet facilities on board.

On arrival in Kyllini port you will rejoin your coach and guide. After a 50 minute drive south we will reach the wonderful site of Olympia. We arrive in Olympia at the highlight of the trip - the Archeological site. Aofficial tour guide will expect you to take you on a fully guided tour to some of Greece’s exciting treasures. You will discover the Temple of Zeus, including one of the Seven Wonders of the World and the Temple of Hera, where the statue of Hermes was found. Aside from that, you will see the original position of the Olympic flame and the original Olympic stadium, to name only a few historic points.

We will return into the village of Olympia for lunch and free shopping time. Olympia is wonderful for cut-price gold, leather goods, books, and souvenirs. If you choose to, there will also be enough time to visit the medals museum, which is dedicated to the modern 1896 Olympics.

Leaving Olympia we take the journey back to Kyllini port. The boat should arrive back into Zakynthos port at around 18:30 pm. There you will rejoin your coach which will take you back to your resort.
