Mount Olympus a must; Dion only if extra time
vduarte1

Mount Olympus is not to be missed! Our time at mount Olympus was the highlight of the excursion. I wish we had more time in the area of Mount Olympus instead of Dion. The order of visiting the archeological site then museum should be reversed to provide background knowledge for time at archeological site of Dion. Hike was very short in comparison to the time spent at Dion & museum.

Tour delivered everything as described. The guide gave just the right amount of information and also enough free time to explore on our own. Dion is not the most spectacular ancient sight I ve visited but clearly very important historically. Very good choice and because of this I m booking with Ammon Express when I get to Athens.

Most Beautiful Tour Guide I’ve Ever Seem
Phong_T
, Jun 2022
I am half-blind and was scared I would fall to my death walking on a narrow walkway up a mountain with a steep fall. So my beautiful tour guide came and told me to hold her arm up the mountain. She then use my iPhone to do a video with the two of us. She said “we are not dead yet” in Greek at my request. She then let me hold her arm to guide me down the mountain. Then when we went to a Greek taverna for lunch she opened a bottle of water for me since that type of water bottle is not common in the United States. Then after I paid for my meal Elenn was waiting for me to offer her arm to guide me back to the tour bus. Elenn, my tour guide, made all the difference in the world and made this trip a success.

Great day out and a ‘must see’ archaeological site. A bit hurried at Dion and could have done with a map for guidance.

Trip to the Home of the Gods!
Jadyn_M
, Feb 2022
Lovely day trip from Thessaloniki for those who want to see Mount Olympus but may not be in shape for a hiking adventure. Chock full of mythology and the brief nature excursion was perfect! We were unable to see the summit due to foggy weather conditions but our guide and driver both handled the weather with grace. We ran into a minor issue with the major mosaic feature at the Dion Museum being closed for the season, but that's not an unusual occurrence for the off season, and not a function of any error on the tour company's part. Awareness of this before the tour in the future will help mitigate disappointment by not talking it up ahead of time!

Our driver and guide,...

Our driver and guide, Lazaros, was an a guide who a traveller could not have asked more of. Not only is he knowledgeable about the history of Greece, and Greek culture/philosophy, he also has a wealth of personal experience to share. A genuinely interestingamd down-to-earth person. As for the trip, Lazaros was always taking care of every one of us depending on our needs. We were shown amazing spots at the mountain and he never hesitated to answer any questions. It's a fantastic trip in itself, but if you happen to have Lazaros as your guide, you've won the lottery!

Dear Guest, Thank you for sending us your review of our excursion to Mt. Olympus. We feel happy our tour met your expectations.

This day trip was truly wonderful, the guides Lazaros and Elena were so welcoming, funny and interesting ! The curriculum is rich yet we had time to experience everything properly. I could not recommend this short journey enough considering how worth it it is, given the impressive landscapes and archeological details.
