What you'll do

The meeting point is at our local office in Olympia named "Olympia back in time". After a short demo on how to use the VR glasses (really easy to use) you will go to the Archaeological Site, the place where all the magic will happen.
You will see the ruins of the temples and by placing the VR glasses in front of your eyes you will give life to the place. You will be immersed in the Ancient Era with a great feeling of presence. Ancient people will be around you and all the temples will be standing up again. Athletes will be training for the Olympics just next to you and you will get the chance to admire upclose the magnificent statue of Zeus with its enormous size that will make you feel awe. Every monument has a great story to tell and you will listen to it using the integrated audio guide.
A common issue for the visitors of the Arch. Site is the difficulty to find every monument but worry no more. A virtual map will help you to find every monument and on this map you will also see your current location.
After your visit we will talk about your experience and i can answer any questions you may have.
Other things to note
Your visit to the archaeological site will be self-guided with the help of the VR glasses and its auto-activated audio assistance, so you can see all the monuments with your own pace.

Archaeological sites are usually not my cup of tea (because my imagination can't do anything with a few stones), but this tour inspired me! At first I thought, well nice, but at the end of the tour I was completely convinced! Through the VR glasses I now have an idea what the old Olympia looked like, where the stadium was and what the atmosphere was like. Achilleas really created a magical experience, thank you very much!!

Amazing tour!!! The best I have ever been to! Me and my boyfriend were so happy and excited about this new experience! You get a chance to visualize better all those “stones” that existed almost 3000 years ago and how the entire location looked like in its whole glory… certainly unique and MUST do experience!!! Well done Achilleas for developing this project!

A ne pas rater, ce type d'équipement est très adapté pour des sites où les ruines ne laissent pas toujours deviner ce que cela a pu être.

Magnifique découverte du site grâce à cette caméra virtuelle qui vous géolocalise et vous donne pleins d'informations toutes plus intéressantes les une que les autres. Je recommande vivement.

Eine tolle Sache, wenn man das einfache Prinzip verstanden hat. Achilleas brachte umgehend (ca. in 5 Min) eine neue Brille, als der Ton bei einer nicht funktionierte. Super Service. Insgesamt sehr zu empfehlen.

Superbe expérience, adultes comme enfants. Il est nouveau sur le marché, j’aurais bien aimé faire la même chose pour d’autres sites.
