Depart from our terminal for one day trip from Athens  to explore the UNESCO-listed archaeological site of Delphi with an expert guide and learn how the city was considered the ‘Center of the World’ in ancient Greece and today one of the most famous archaeological sites of Greece. Along the way, you will see the plain of Beotia, an agricultural center  and you will also pass by the city of Theva, the birthplace of King Oedipus. Immerse yourself in the myths and monuments of classical Greece on this full-day tour of Delphi from Athens. 

After meeting your guide in Athens, hear tales about the ancient Greeks and their lives in Delphi while traveling to the town by air-conditioned coach. You will reach Delphi  towards Mt. Parnassos, making a short rest stop outside the town of Levadia.

First stop is a tour of the Delphi archeological site – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and easily one of the most important digs in Europe.  As you walk around the evocative ruins with your guide, see famous monuments likethe monument of the Argive Kings, the treasury of the Athenians, the Athenian Stoa, the Polygonal Wall, the monument of Platea and  the Temple of Apollo famous for its oracle .

Second stop is  Delphi museum, with it's spectacular exhibits include the frieze of the Treasury of the Sifnians, the Naxian Sphinx, the Statue of Antinoos the metopes of the Athenian treasury, the famous bronze Charioteer, originally created to commemorate a victory during the 476 B.C. Pythian Games, and many other artifacts. Be sure to check out the bronze Charioteer of Delphi and the Sphinx of Naxos. 

After lunch break, visit Athena Pronaia Sanctuary, the most photographed spot in Delphi. Return to Athens passing by the picturesque mountain village of Arachova, built on the south slopes of Parnassus, well known for its attractive hand-woven carpets, rugs and quilts, as well as for its wine and cheese (short photo stop).

one of the best decision I took to take a day tour to Delphi organized by Key Tours. If time permits then s night halt at Aracova village transport you 2500 years back. Our guide Ms. Marianna story telling of the Oracle of Delphi and Apollo was mesmerizing. The package included lunch at a restaurant which was superb. I was a bit apprehensive earlier as such lunches are horrible. The only negative is the wait at key tours office early morning to get all tourists together so you waste an hour there. The road trip is beautiful and the ruins at Delphi speak to you. There is a bit of steep climb though. The new Delphi museum is fantastic and I wish we had more time to saviour how humans lived so many centuries ago Overall a great experience

Smooth, very enjoyable and comfortable day trip
Katerina, the tour guide was one of the best guides i have ever had! She was like a patient history teacher making Delphi and the myth of Apollo came alive.
She was very clear and passionate about the commentaries she delivered to us.
The driver was good and bus very comfortable.
The lunch was also very nice - lasagna yummy.
Only two things can b better - the first stopover in the morning at a lousy and overpriced cafe! The espresso was double the usual cost and the simple ice-cream 6 euro! What cut-throat prices!!
Could have had a brief stop at Arahova instead!!

I was a little nervous about how this trip would go because I’d read some unfavorable reviews, but I have to say we had a great experience. Yiulia was our tour guide and she gave us great information the entire day. If you’re a MAJOR history or archeology buff and you need extensive details or more than 2.5 hours to spend at the sites and museum (small museum), then I recommend you do Delphi independently. But if you’re an average person with enough peripheral knowledge about Ancient Greece just to be dangerous, then this tour is more than adequate. To address some of the complaints that i saw in other reviews. Yes the pick-up/drop-off was a little weird but it didn’t affect our day at all. Lunch was good. The place is nice. And it’s quite cheap. We didn’t have any time in Arachova, and the restaurant is a bit outside the town proper, so you don’t really have a choice of other places for lunch. Pack snacks or buy them at the pit stops because lunch isn’t until around 2:30pm - For us that was very late.. As stated, the restaurant situation/location wasn’t an issue for us because the food was good and cheap and we were starving :) Overall this was a great day trip and my 9-year old loved it. I’d definitely recommend Key Tours for the trip to Delphi. Ask for Yiulia (spelling?)

Our family - including three teens - really enjoyed the day out at Delphi. Key Tours were very efficient and helpful. The tour was well organised and Maria was funny and had great knowledge in her subject. Delphi holds an incredible spot in ancient civilisation- well worth a trip.

Great trip - recommended
Great day trip. It is a three-hour drive, so I didn't get to dawdle at Delphi as much as I would have liked, but we had enough time there to see the site and climb to the top, although we had to hurry back down. We got the lunch option and were well pleased, with a variety of dishes. We also made a 20-minute photo stop at the temple of Athena Pronaia that was nice as well. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered out questions and incorporated them into her presentation. We booked late the night before, so we did not show up on the list when we first arrived, but that was quickly ironed out.
