activity info

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).

I would recommend Key Tours to anyone who wants to go sightseeing in Greece, with a good amount of comfort and guided understanding of the sites. We booked our Athens, Delphi, Meteora, and Mycenae tours with them and all of them were unforgettable. Right from the pick up from our hotel, to the knowledgeable guides, to the keeping of time, they are perfect. A huge shootout to our guides at Delphi and Meteora. Also, after one of the trips, we were dropped back at the common meeting point and happened to just roam around till our ride back to the hotel arrived. Unfortunately, we missed the ride when we were back. However, the officials at the office were very understanding and patiently arranged our drop back. We have recommended Key Tours to all our friends and if we happen to go back to Greece, we would hire their services all over again.

The oracle and the navel of the world are a must for everybody! A marvellous surrounding as surplus. The museum highly to advise as well. A very good guide with a very pleasant manner to help people to understand Greece and the Greeks and the historical backgrounds.

This trip is a bit longer than others, almost 3 hrs to get to the site. But once you get there, it's a gorgeous view and worth the trip.
