Enjoy our awarded with TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2019 tour and 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 archaeological site – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and easily one of the most important digs in Europe.  Avoid and skip the lines of the archaeological site and walk around the evocative ruins with your guide, see famous monuments like the 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).

Først og fremmest var Kostas en fremragende guide; han var yderst faglig kompetent, var en dygtig og klar formidler, besvarede beredvillig alle spørgsmål og havde fuldstændig styr på alle praktikaliteter. Bussen var tip top; der var taget flot hensyn til corona-situationen vedrørende afstand. Og endelig var selve rejsens mål - Delfi - fuldstændig vidunderlig.

Really great if you have at least a few days in Athens. Delphi was so famous in ancient times, it’s definitely worth a visit. The guide was great, explaining so much information during the bus journey. The museum is fascinating and the site itself is incredible. Our guide Anastasia was very knowledgeable and super friendly.

The guide (Kostas) was very knowledgeable and friendly and the timing was very precise. The introduction to Greek history and culture during the trip towards Delphi was also very useful to make the most out of the visit.

Dmitrius was such a fantastic speaker & tour guide! The bus ride was smooth and we greatly enjoyed walking around the Delphi site and museum, learning many facts and figures about the history and significance of this area. We are studying the history of Greece (Herodotus) and this tour made Delphi come alive for us! Thank you so much!
