My husband and I enjoyed our tour to Delphi very much. Our Guide Mariana was excellent, so much information all throughout the tour. The restaurant that we had lunch at was also very good. Excellent calamari! One negative was the museum at Delphi. The airconditioning was minimal, it was very crowded and hot, took away from our experience. We would highly recommend this tour. Good value for the money.

This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life so far. I went on this tour on the 11th of October and I will recommend it to anyone who comes to Athens. First of all, everything was on time (which is rare in these kinds of trips) and the people were very nice and helpful (especially when I boarded the wrong bus oops). At any rate, the way to Delphi is long, but it went by very quickly due to the tour guide Mr. Kostas (I apologize if I butcher any names). Mr. Kostas has a vast wealth of knowledge on Athens and Greece in general, from the ancient to the modern. He also has the ability to convey that knowledge in a way that makes you listen. It was clear from the very beginning that Mr. Kostas was passionate about Greece and its history and wanted us to know about it. The ruins of Delphi are breathtaking, especially when you know the history and the legends related to them. The museum was a bit packed, but the tour guide was efficient and made sure we saw the most significant pieces. Lunch was very tasty and very Greek, a perfect way to end the visit to Delphi. Also, the driver was extremely skilled (I'm still not sure how he was able to maneuver in such tight streets). All in all, you cannot go to Athens and not do this tour. It was unforgettable.

We had a terrific experience on this day tour! The Delphi archeological site was spectacular; a must see when coming to Greece! The food we had at Symposium restaurant was absolutely delicious! It is a family run restaurant with such flavorful dishes & a friendly, fun staff; I always appreciate when the restaurant personal & owners take the time to talk to people. What an awesome day!

“Wonderful Archaeological Site” This is a must trip. Delphi is wonderful. The trip is organised so well. It is a long day but worth it for the experience of seeing such a magnificent site. My only complaint is that I would have liked more time at the site and museum. However we did enjoy the site at Athena Pronanea which was a bonus. The guide l. Anastasia, was wonderful, so knowledgeable. You could tell how much she enjoyed sharing this wonderful experience with her guests.

The trip was great! The tour-guide made the 3 hour drive to the site enjoyable by sharing a lot of stories and history of Athens and Delphi. Everything was well organized. The Delphi site itself is beautiful and absolutely worth visiting. The museum is not that impressive but it is not a problem to branch out from the group for an hour and just take a walk around the archaeological site while the group is in the museum. I recommend to book the option with included lunch. The lunch was pretty good and worth the money you would pay to include it.

“Good day trip from Athens” Good trip with an informative guide. Opportunities for breaks, free time and bathrooms. Would have been nice to have a little extra free time at Delphi but the day does pack in a fair amount. Bus is around 2.5 to 3 hours each way. Does have a bit of walking on incline at Delphi
