The transfer on the bus to and from was good. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We walked around the site at our own pace and when we were finished the bus was waiting to take us back home. Also it was enough time to fully appreciate and take in the whole experience.

Very nice tour of Olympia. The audio commentaries were very relevant. We also used a virtual reality headset from Olympia Back in Time and I must say it's a fabulous tool. You can visualize the site perfectly and the ruins make sense. I recommend taking the tour (which lasts around 2 hours) of the archaeological site in the morning at 8am, then going to the museum at around 10am to finish the visit in 1 hour.

The site is of course magnificent, but the audio guide is frankly monotonous.
