What people are saying about Elis

Andrew was an incredible tour guide! Our tour of Olympia was the best tour we have done on our entire tour of Greece. The experience we had was excellent. We saw an incredible archeology site and he had some great information on what we saw. Next proceeded to a winery & olive meal for lunch, wine and olive oil testing. Next we went to a honey farm, this was a true way to experience Greece. The owner is a friend of Andrews and we learned first hand how warm and charming Greek hospitality is. Finally he took us to an excellent spot on the coast, a beautiful place for a swim. If you are even considering this tour think no further, this tour is a must!

From an organizational point of view, everything worked out perfectly, our driver was already waiting for us in the van at the port of Kyllini. on the trip to Olympia we received a lot of very good information about the region, history and Olympia. There was also time and space for the individual organization of the day, very flexible. All in all a good experience and highly recommended!

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.

super fun Jeep tour where you see and learn a lot about Santorini in one day. Good communication and service from the owner!

Great experience and fun way to get a taste of the Island. Our guide F was great
