"Informative and Fun!'' 

We had a great time. Our guide was very knowledgeable. I enjoyed all of the stops we made and felt we had a great amount of time for pictures and walking around on our own.

“Our guide Marianna Tsigaridu was wonderful, knowledgeable, concise.”

Marianna was one of the best guides I have come across. Totally aware of travel protocol, traveller comfort and concerns, always working comfortably with time limits and smooth transitions. Her speaking voice clear, concise and audible. Very patient, charming and pleasant. First class.

Delphi was outstanding. Parts were closed though due to recent snowfalls so we missed seeing the site in its entirety, disappointing but safety is vital and the reason understandable. Museum is well laid out and has spectacular, well described artefacts. Guide very knowledgable and communicated well. Driver also very competent. Would have liked to have had a bit more time to wander thru the ruins and really 'soak up' the atmosphere but transportation to and from Athens, meal breaks etc. ate into available time. Key Tours run a very competent organisation.

Our guide Marianna Tsigaridou was incredibly knowledgeable. She taught us so much in never knew and connected to dots to new and existing knowledge. This was really a memorable day for all. Delphi is massive! It rained for most of the day because we were traveling in the winter. However, Marianna and our bus driver made adjustments to our route just a little In order for us to have the best experience. I couldn’t have asked for a better all day tour. Thank you Marianna & Key Day Tours! See you next year! The only issue we had was the pick up from our hotel. We weren’t notified of the time in advance (even though we inquired by email) by the company assigned to pick us up until that morning which caused some stress. Other than this the booking was spectacular!
