Do you wish to explore the playground of the mighty god Zeus and the site that gave birth to the Olympics?

Then the Olympic Site Mythology tour is the ideal tour for you and your family!

This funfilled private tour will take you to the Olympic site, the sanctuary of Zeus and his son Hercules, and the only place where the Olympic flame is lit for each Olympiad.

Along with your local expert you will unfold the secrets of this UNESCO monument and share exciting stories and local myths.

Grasp the opportunity to run the original track of the Olympic stadium and crown yourself an Olympic victor.

Stories around the track justify its size as to why it always measured 600 feet. Assuming that Hercules used his own foot to calculate distances, we can easily calculate his foot number!

Together we will share all insights about the Greek gods and heroes under the shady Olive trees of the Olympic site.
