We've enjoyed our trip very much. Kostas, our guide, was fascinating, super proffesional yet kind, and added touches of humor to his explanations. The bus was very comfortable, we had WIFI service for most of the time, and it wasn't completley packed, so there were loads of place to seat and rest while driving.

“A Day Well Spent”

Our tour guide, Katia was thorough, entertaining, and just wonderful all-around. Getting a tour of the ruins at Delphi and the museum was a very educational experience and I thought it was worth the long day (about 11 hours, start to finish). Besides the archaeological richness, the views were incredible- and we appreciated Katia's descriptions of those regions while we were on the bus ride there. If I could give any constructive criticism- I wish there were some more Greek music played on low for the bus ride home. The lunch was delicious and well worth the upcharge.

“The guide Katria was excellent. She shared a lot of insightful infor.” This woman is an older woman and j hope j have her name spelled correctly. I mentioned how she was excellent to the team members who work at the office near the Royal Olympic hotel and the group there said she was one of the best.

The tour was great, our guide was really knowledgeable. She gave us all the history of the ruins and the surrounding areas. The lunch served was also good, at a nice restaurant near the site. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who would like to explore this ancient site.
