The birthplace of the Olympic Games in the classical times, Olympia today is split between the modern village that caters for the thousands of visiting tourists each year and Ancient Olympia, the site of the sanctuary, where the games took place every four years for more than a thousand years.

"I had a wonderful time on your Classical Greece Tour. It exceeded all my expectations. The itinerary was well thought out and included the most important sites of mainland Greece. The hotels were in excellent positions for exploring the sites and museums. Our tour guide, Marina, was amazing. Her personality was delightful. She was entertaining and her knowledge of the history and mythology of ancient Greece was truly remarkable; her passion for the places we visited brought them to life. It was a truly unforgettable experience. I had the best time ever! Thank you Cox & Kings."
