We recently went on our honeymoon in Greece and we can't thank Niki and her group enough for an incredible experience. Our trip included a private tour with a driver around the Pelopenese and Athens and individual private tours of several incredible locations. Each one of our guides was very personal and professional, spent as much time as we wanted... More

We had never booked a tour that wasn't planned by the cruise ship before. Olympic Day Tours has really great reviews in Trip Advisor, so we decided, as a group of 7 traveling together, that it would be fun to try a private tour. It was the best decision of the whole trip. From the moment we stepped off the... More

We chose to use Olympic Day Tours with Niki based on all the other great reviews. She was an amazing tour guide with the right amount of information and time to explore a bit on our own too. If you are going to visit Olympia via a cruise ship or find your own way there, I highly recommend a half... More

I rarely fun into a guide I would write a review on, but Niki was simply amazing. Not only was she well organized but VERY knowledgeable. Above all, she seemed to have a genuine love for her country and job. She spoke excellent English and departed information in a well thought out manner. Niki's demeanor was very approachable, comfortable, and... More

My husband and I were picked up at the cruise ship port right on time. Our guide, Joanna was very personable, knowledgeable, and fun. We drove about an hour to Olympia with Joanna telling us about the communities that we passed, the local economy, and other interesting details about the country and the culture. We walked with her through the... More

Niki Vlachou was our tour guide in Olympia and Athens. She was professional, entertaining, polite and extremely knowledgeable. I couldn’t ask for more. Her tours were definitely highlights of our trip to Greece.

Niki was excellent, observant, and conscientious. Very fluent English. Superb knowledge of the location and the history. Very willing to modify plans to give the small group more time at the site and less time shopping. Traditional lunch was special with personable staff and good food. Small bus was clean and comfortable. Highly recommend Niki and her tours.

Niki Vlachou is a wonderful tour guide, she was able to bring Olympia alive. There is a great little museum and a big park with the ruins. Be prepared for the site and museum to be packed with tourists and guides. It also can get pretty hot so take plenty of water and walking shoes. Lunch was part of the... More

The tour and our guide was excellent. We especially loved roaming through the Olympic ruins, taking pictures, and imagining us there so many hundred of year ago. The ruins were amazing, and we asked the tour guide if we could stay longer (since we did not take the lunch option). The ruins were fantastic and afforded many fun pictures. We... More

Ancient Olympia came alive through the pictures and stories shared by Niki. We thoroughly enjoyed our personal tour of the sight and Niki's humor and personality made for an inter-active tour which was a highlight for us on this trip!
