Well organized transport. Some uncertainty about time. If Duration says 4 hours, this turned out to be the time you can spend in olympia . Travel time there and back is added to this. About 40 minutes out . We had booked at 10.00, but heard the evening before that the departure from the port was at 9.15. Something to keep in mind when traveling on a cruise ship.

Everything worked great. We were previously informed via WhatsApp of the meeting point and time. Everyone was very friendly and the time on site (3 hours) was sufficient.

Very prompt in picking us up. Appreciated the 50% discount in the store. Saved a lot of money, and Constantina was terrific.

Good direct connection to Olympia with excellent bus and driver.
