Fantastic! Niki brings an authentic passion and sense of inspiration to her tour. It is impossible not to be drawn in and feel the majesty of the original Olympic games. More than just knowledgeable about the area, Niki can put Olympia in the greater context of Greece's rich history. She is so personable, we felt like we'd known her for... More

We spent a terrific hour and a half with Niki, and would highly recommend the visit of Olympia with her. She was super accommodating, was willing to meet us very early, and was a friendly and informative guide.

Outstanding tour. It's hard to understand ruins and the life people lived in them when you are looking at a rocks and old pillars. Niki brought the site to life and helped us to understand the history of the Olympics and the competitors, the temples and the architects; and Greek history in general. In the museum she helped us to... More

I brought 23 college students to Greece to study the Origin of Sport, Medicine, and the Olympic Movement in January 2017. Greece is an amazing place but Niki, our tour guide, made it unbelievable. The breadth and depth of her knowledge of Greek history, mythology, and origins, In Olympia and Greece in general, added a level to the trip that... More

This trip was unbeatable and our travel guide, Niki, was amazing. She was very knowledgeable about every site we visited and she was available for any questions you had. I would 100% recommend Olympic Tours if this is what you are wanting in Greece. The sites you'll visit are unreal and the history behind them make it worth it. This... More

My trip to Greece was the best experience of my life, and Niki had a lot to do with that. She is very knowledgeable, organized, and kind, and truly was a "Greek mommy" for all of us on our trip. She helped us to make the most of our 2 weeks in Greece by sharing a lot of valuable information... More

This was my first time to Europe and my expectations were far exceeded. I couldn't have chosen a better country to visit than Greece. Obviously being in a new country can be very intimidating, but Niki was so helpful as we navigated around. She knew literally anything about everything and I was constantly blown away at her knowledge about all... More

Our time in Greece was such a great experience! The tour guides did a great job at explaining all the history and allowed for the students to learn so much knowledge. Even when we were traveling we were learning about Greece's past and current events. I loved that we never wasted time and were always productive around the country. I... More
