KATAKOLON TOURS

Hello cruisers

This is a description of our taxi tour and the details for all the historical places you can visit in the area. You can click on each of them to see a quick description, photos, entrance fees, distances, driving and time needed approximately to visit, maps to locate and the official websites by the Greek Ministry of culture to read the history of them. Not only is Ilia the birthplace of the Olympic flame but also a very beautiful area. In spite of the fact that in August 2007, enormous forest fires took place which led to tens of deaths and a massive environmental and economical disaster.

There are also other destinations such as wineries, Christian orthodox monasteries, local restaurants and some of the wonderful beaches around. Depending on the time you have available we can accommodate the itinerary to visit only what you want to visit. We can also make any last minute changes you want if there is enough time for a secure return to the port. You need a minimum +/-4 hours tour to explore Olympia and a quick tour around. If you have more time available we’re able to organize a 7 to 8 hours tour for you.

Since you travel on a cruise ship it is of great importance to you that your driver is always near to you for any emergency. Also you need to be with a driver who is able to organize your tour and the schedule you'll visit the places so you'll be able to avoid the crowded areas. A driver who knows the history of the area, likes his job, and sees it as an opportunity to communicate with people from all over the world is also a must.

All the information of the area, including the official books in several languages, photos texts and maps, needed to decide what to visit, is in my car. We’ll give them to you, during your sightseeing of the historical places. We can discuss together your taxi tour and make any last minute changes you want about the itinerary, the day you’ll be here. Of course you'll take the decision for the final itinerary. To make you feel better and sure for a secure return to your ship, we’ll give you a mobile device, so we can be in touch anytime during your sightseeing tour of the ancient ruins and the Museum. I personally, reply to your messages so you can have an idea of your driver's level of English. These are some of the details of our private tours which we believe make the difference from any of the ship's excursions.

Yours, George & Takis
