Private tours from the cruise port of Katakolon to Ancient Olympia.The owner, Andreas Stamos, provides great services for visitors wishing to discover and experience the secrets of Ancient Olympia and the countryside of Ilia (Ancient Elis). Run in the original Olympic Stadium, walk through the remains of the buildings in which athletes trained and the temples in which they made offerings, and visit the museums in which the Ancient Olympics and the mysteries of this sacred city come to life. Enjoy the personal care and attention of a family-owned business with a new Mercedes E class.

I would very highly recommend Andreas and TaxiKatakolo for your trip to Olympia. My family cruised to Katakolon and we were scheduled to be there only 6 hours, so I was concerned that it was too short to trust any company other than the cruise...More

We would like to book a day with this taxi. We are coming off a cruise ship for a few hours and want to see the about 3 or 4 main attractions. We have a 10 & 8 year old with us. How many people can fit in the vehicle and how much would the cost be for about 4 hours of time? We will be there the first week of July. Thanks! Jasmin
