The guide was nice and spoke well. We were rushing at the end to see Mount Olympus, and had little time there to explore or climb. The guide didn't have much to say about Olympus. Considering Mount Olympus was the selling point of the tour, it was unfortunate. Should go to Olympus first and then the side trips. The side trips were great, sure. Beautiful views and nice people. But I expected more time and history on Olympus.
