Good, entertaining, entertaining.

Good driver, air-conditioned new bus. We were in Olympia in front of the tourist crowds. The driver brought us to the entrance with tickets and then took us to a small, idyllic bee farm. At over 30 ° C he provided us with water and brought us back safely and on time.

Loved Olympia tour including Klio Honey Farm and beach stop!

We would have liked more commentary on the sites of Olympia and the history but our guide just read us a script on the Olympic Games. We enjoyed the museum but felt rushed! The honey farm was a great cultural experience but the beach stop was not much! Could have stayed longer in Olympia. Four of our group of 6 are teachers! Our guide was sweet but needs more experience. Maybe she needs to accompany a more experienced person to learn more about being a guide!

Andrew was an excellent and accomodating tour guide. He listened to and observed the needs of our group (11 of us ranging from teens to seniors) and was full of information about this beautiful island.
