It was a lovely day at Katakolon, thanks to Andreas Stamos. He was very punctual in meeting our cruise when we arrived. His roomy SUV accommodated our party of eight. He drove us to Olympia and waited for us while we went on our guided tour (pre-arranged by him). He then brought us to the town of Olympia, where we... More

We were greeted by Andreas Stamos by our cruise. You can tell he is passionate about his country. Our first stop was Olympia. Andreas walked us to entrance and gave us a book to look at while we visited the ruins. The book shows before and after photos. He also gave us some water. Our next stop we stopped in... More

We were on a 12 day cruise through Greece and Italy and the cruise line didn't really have many interesting excursions, and the few they had were super expensive, as usual. I found Andreas Stamos here on Trip Advisor and the reviews were wonderful, and trip advisor has never done me wrong, so we booked him for the very next... More

Andreas was waiting for us in the harbour of Katakolon. We are a family of 7 and we had ample space in the minivan (seating 8), which was clean and tidy. Andreas brought us to archeia Olympia, where we arrived before the crowd. Wonderful. After a visit to the museum , he drove us to a nice taverna on a... More

Andreas was very kind and respectful. He had great information regarding the local area and the people and what life is like for them. His hands on experience as an olive grower was great. I will be honest and say that his accent is a little hard to understand. You have to pay attention pretty closely to what he says.... More

From the time we disembarked from our cruise ship, Christos was there. He warmly welcomed us and brought us to the car. There was a slight concern as our tour guide was taken to the hospital. Both Stamos and Christos worked together to secure a licensed tour guide at the last minute. As we waited for our new tour guide... More

We were a party of five cruise passengers which booked Andreas Stamos for a day tour on 29th September 2016 and we are so glad we booked his services. Andreas met us promptly from the cruise port and took us straight to Olympia giving us the history and commentary on route. He also suggested a visit to the monastery and... More

We were met at our cruise ship by Andreas and his partner (we were two families in 2 vehicles) and were taken through Katakolon to Ancient Olympia. Andreas walked us to the museum and made sure we knew where we were going and also supplied us with water (it was hot so this was welcome) and information on Olympia. After... More
