Full description
The tour is designed for people reaching the port of Katakolon by one of the cruise ships which stay many hours at the port. The tour has a duration of approximately 6-7 hours. Your first stop is the Olympia archaeological site and museum. The Olympia visit will last approximately 2.5 hours where you will have the chance to see the birthplace of the Olympic games, Temple of Zeus, Stadium, Hermes of Praxiteles status and all other museum artifacts.

Next, you will head to Klio's honey farm where a lovely rural house will be visited with the nicest owners, introducing the process of the local honey production. During the visit a nice treat is offered tasting local pancakes with homemade honey.

You will then enjoy a wine tour at Magna Grecia farm. The owners will also introduce the process of harvesting and producing home made olive oil. Greek local lunch can be served then or another local restaurant can be an option to taste local cuisine.

Then you will go to the Kremasty monastery for the chance to get a feeling of the Greek Orthodox religion. Finally, the stop at Saint Andrew beach gives you a chance for a quick swim under the Greek sun, enjoying the cleanest water surrounded by rocks in combination with a nice Greek coffee or light lunch.
