Great tour

Had a memorable tour. Well organised, excellent lunch, very good guide comfortable coach. Suggest to include in package at least a litre of water during summer time. Use Keytour for excursions.

So much history to see in one day!

We made arrangements to walk to a nearby hotel from the house we rented for pickup by Key Tours. We went to their main office and picked up more passengers. The bus was very nice and our tour guide (I wish I could remember her name!) was just amazing. She provided us with so much information on the history of Greece and how the past and present are interwoven. The drive to Delphi takes quite awhile, but there is a stop for snacks and bathroom breaks heading out there and again on the way back. Once we got to Delphi, we were able to walk around nearly the entire site, with our guide providing so much information. The pictures we took were amazing. Be sure to take ALOT of water with you if you go during the summer. We were there in mid-June and it was so hot. We toured the museum and were amazed at the incredible pieces. After the museum we stopped for lunch (which was included in our ticket price) at Villa Symposium Delphi. We enjoyed a multi-course lunch that left us full for the rest of the day. Be prepared - if you order a soda with lunch, you'll be charged 2.5 Euros. We made a couple more stops at archaeological sites on the way home, too. Driving through Arachova was like driving through a quaint village from decades ago and I wish we'd had time to stop. This trip was like stepping back in time!
