Force Majeure

Due to reasons beyond our control we reserve the right to change the terms of the reservation, the transportation vehicle and/or the itinerary. In such a case you will be informed as to the reasons and alternatives will be offered. Moreover, for reasons of limited availability we can arrange for different but of equal value services(restaurants, wineries, etc) to substitute unavailable suppliers. At no time will compensation be paid or requested from this company. All of our services are provided by reputable independent professionals and we only act as an agent of the suppliers of these services. We accept no liability of any kind from any loss, damage, injury, costs of delays resulting from your use of our services. Personal items should remain at all times during the tour under your personal control.

Fair Usage Policy

In order to protect the quality of services offered to our clients, Olympic Tours has drawn up and implemented this Fair Usage Policy, applicable to all schemes of use of extra services offered during our private tours. This Fair Use Policy is designed to make sure that Wi-fi hotspot users receive a fast and reliable service. A very small number of our guests use the Wi-fi service inappropriately, for example by sending or downloading large files, or using 'peer to peer' and file sharing software (which may involve sending and receiving video and other large files). This means that service quality for all users is affected, making it slower for everyone to access the internet or send and receive emails. The on board Wi-Fi hotspot is generally meant for emailing, social media, instant messaging, browsing and search activities. Guests who use file-sharing software or download large files are usually the ones affected by our policy. Media streaming and downloading of torrents also contribute to the excessive use of bandwidth capacity.

Client Testimonials

Niki's knowledge of the history there as well as how she related it to all of us was a perfect balance!
Julie
Niki knows her stuff, and she comes across as an intelligent and credible source of verified information. My wife and I used her as our group tour guide in Olympia and then again in Athens, and we were very pleased.
Tony
I definitely recommend other cruisers to book independently through Niki Vlachou.
