activity info

Begin from Athens with your luxury air conditioned bus and your professional guide and enjoy a majestic two days trip. Visit Delphi archaiological site with the temple of Apollo considered as 'the navel of the wold' in ancient Greece and the impresside Meteora grey rocks with its UNESCO-listed cliff-top monasteries. 

1st DAY: Hop on board your luxury bus and enjoy a unique journey northwest to Delphi, arriving around noon. Famous for its theater, Temple of Apollo and ancient ruins, Delphi was considered the center of the earth and the universe, and played a central role in the classical Greek world. Visit  at the archaeological site and the TEMPLE of APOLLO famous for its oracle. In the afternoon after lunch depart through Central Greece and the cities of Lamia (short stop), Trikala crossing the Thessalian plain, to Kalambaka (a small town built at the foot of the majestic grey rocks, and crowded by the METEORA Monasteries (short stop for souvenirs). Overnight stay in Kalambaka.

2nd DAY: Savor breakfast in your hotel and then travel for nearby UNESCO-listed Meteora for a tour of the cliff-top monasteries. Visit two different impressive Byzantine Monasteries built on top of rock towers and providing breathtaking views over the plain. The monasteries are perched on top of towers of sandstone, which for centuries provided totally inaccessible retreats for the monks. Meteora is considered one of the most beautiful and inspiring area of mainland Greece, and its monasteries are one of the country's most unique attractions. By your return you may visit optional a factory of Byzantine style icons. Return to Athens passing by the heroic monument of Leonidas king of Sparta  in Thermopylae (short stop for photos). Arrive in Athens in the early evening.

Generally we hate bus tours, big cruise ships, etc. and are fiercely independent when we travel. So to do a bus tour, even a 2 day one, is rare. But this tour was excellent. Marianna enriched everything you saw by providing practical background and knowledge. Both Delphi and Meteora are places NOT to be missed when going to Greece. Both far outweigh the overcrowded, over-rated Mykonos and Santorini - which should never be visited during summer. The skills of the driver and the enthusiasm of the tour guide made this trip very worthwhile and a key part of visiting the country. The hotel pick-up and drop off were smooth and seamless. The hotel in Meteora was quite nice, well situated, and a nice dinner and breakfast buffet came with it. And highly unusual of "bus tours", this trip only makes a quick stop at an interesting commercial stop where they make the beautiful Greek icons where you enjoy some complimentary ouzo, wine or juice. The shop by itself is interesting. Take it from someone who takes pride in traveling on their own and planning every facet of the trip - don't be stupid and do this one on your own. The cost of a rental car, fuel, taxes, breakfast, dinner, hotel room, entry fees, etc. will far exceed the cost of the Key Tour price. I did the math. And the roads into and out of Delphi are mountainous and difficult. Sit back and let the professional driver handle it and enjoy the scenery. These people know what they are doing and do it well. This is one the independent traveler is smart to turn to Key Tours for as they have it done pat.

Totally worth it! We were picked up from our hotel and dropped off at a meeting point to get into the tour bus that took us to Delphi. If you are on this two-day trip, you will be on a guided tour of the ruins of Delphi. However, time will be very tight to explore the Delphi museum because you will be taken to another location to hop on another bus that will take you to Kalampaka where you will stay for the night. It was a very pleasant and smooth ride up the mountains of Central Greece. Meteora is amazing and its history is fascinating! I highly recommend this tour!

After traveling Greece and Lebanon for almost 4 weeks I was so looking forward to this planned and booked 2 day trip to Delphi and Meteora. Unfortunately I mixed my dates and had assumed I was booked on the Thursday and Friday only to find out on my arrival to Athens I had actually booked the Wednesday and Thursday. Upon my arrival in Athens I was told at the hotel that the tour company had come to pick me up earlier in the morning. Thankfully I was able to reach the Key Tours GM (Dimitrios) and he kindly got me onto the tour for the Thursday and Friday and I only had to pay the accommodation again (which was totally fine).

The tour guide Arthur (in English) was awesome and funny. He has loads of knowledge on Meteora. These monasteries built up on the rocks were simply breathtaking. Delphi was also well worth the visit so much history at this site.

Thank you Key Tours for an amazing 2 days touring these beautiful parts of Athens.

Professional, efficient, and friendly. I am not a normal tour taker, but Key Tours did as they promised. The itinerary was well laid out and the guides were helpful, knowledgeable, and fun. I could repeat what the website offers, but just know that Key Tours did not disappoint. In fact, they went beyond my expectations to deliver a quality experience. I highly recommend their services.

I had never heard of Meteora, but when I saw the pictures I thought - may as well spend a bit extra and see some more of Greece. Well!!!! Anyone who just goes to Delphi is super missing out! The second day of this trip was incredible! I have no idea how people accomplish this on their own without the benefits of a bus and a fantastic guide. Our guide was so knowledgeable and we learned so much about Greek Orthodox religion and symbols. The monasteries are amazing to see from outside but inside they are breathtaking. I cannot recommend highly enough. The bus was so comfortable and the hotel was good enough - although Greece doesn't understand the notion of a hot buffet breakfast.

Marianna Tsigaridou was our guide. She gave a running history as we drove, described all the vegetation, olive trees, sites along the way, industry. She was a wealth of information and I love history but she provided so much more. I would go on any tour as long as Marianna was the guide. The Temple of Apollo was amazing and the Meteora Monasteries blew my mind. It was a long drive but well worth it and the overnight stay was nice. We went in December so it's cold at night but warms up nicely during the day. The included dinner and breakfast surpassed my expectations as well.

We did the two day Delphi/Meteora tour which ran like a well oiled machine. Good pick-up and drop-off, excellent hotel (we took the upgrade) with large buffet of food options for dinner and breakfast, and a lovely tour guide who knew how to get us in before the crowds, etc. No complaints!
