About the tour

Walk with me through the serene olive groves of Ancient Olympia as spectators and athletes did thousands of years ago. Admiring the UNESCO monuments from a distance, we will revive the Olympics and the ideas that emerged from the event that unites humanity even now.


Meet Ioanna Papakosta

Ioanna was born and raised in Patra and has spent most of her adult life showing guests around Greece as a licensed tour guide. Passionate about history, mythology, flora and nature along with tradition and gastronomy she loves sharing every aspect of her country as Greek hospitality orders...


What to expect

Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Olympia with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Olympia. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.


Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.

The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
