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.

A must trip for all travelers to Athens

We took the 2 day tour to Delphi and Meteora. The tour guide was excellent and a very talented one who was a doing his PhD in Archaeology, Painter, Musician and generallly well informed. The hotel Grand Meteora was an excellent place where we stayed overnight.

Great value and worth the visit! For the price we got everything we hoped for and more! Irene was a good guide (especially keeping the full group to a reasonable schedule) and knowledgeable about both sites. We were very happy to not be driving on the windy roads, and Greece is so mountainous that the scenery was beautiful throughout and worth the long drive. Both sites were beautiful, unique, and quite interesting. Hotel accommodations (we took the cheaper option) were perfectly fine, with solid dinner and breakfast buffets.

Note that the driving is a bit slower by bus and with a larger group, so that limits how much time you can stay at the actual sites. We barely had enough time to get up to the stadium at Delphi, and didn't have time for the museum for example. If either site is of particular importance to you, you may feel rushed and be disappointed in the amount of time there, but for us a little over an hour at each of the major stops felt about right and enabled fitting a lot into 2 days.

Fantastic tour of Delphi and Meteora

We did the two day tour of Delphi and Meteora and would highly recommend this company. The whole tour went smoothly from the pick up from our central Athens hotel, throughout the two days and drop off back to our hotel. The coach driver was great and the two different tour guides were full of interesting facts of these really amazing sights. There was plenty of time in Delphi to go and see the stadium(a good 10min hike up a hill) , a wonderful and affordable stop for lunch afterwards and we stayed in the hotel Oreas on Meteora which was totally adequate and centrally located for an evening walk if you wanted. We saw 2 monasteries the next day before the drive back to Athens. Highly recommend Key tours to all ages

Stunning sites

I did the two day tour from Athens to Delphi and Meteora. The sites were stunning, and even the drive there and back was full of beautiful scenery. Our driver and guide were great. It would have been great to have spent even just an extra half hour at Delphi. The overpriced food and time wasted at stops such as Lamia were a bit frustrating. This is what brought my review down to five stars.
