Excellent 1 day guided tour in Delphi by Key Tours Excellent tour through the important archaeological site of Delphi. Our guide Yiouli Chryssou explained all the relevant histories of Greek mythology concerning Delphi and the Oracle, as well as quickly detailed monuments of Athens and history of other cities along the way. Flawless guided tour on Delphi site and museum. Only real flaw was the 1 hour late return due to the transit of Athens at the end of the day. Overall, I highly recommend Key Tours for the comfortable bus, with Wi-Fi (sadly intermittent), great driver and excellent guide!

Super Organisation - super Tour! Ich wurde pünktlich vom Hotel abgeholt. Bis alle Hotels angesteuert waren, verging etwa eine Stunde (abhängig von der Lage des Hotels). Am Treffpunkt musste noch einmal der Bus gewechselt werden, die Guides haben dies jedoch sehr gut koordiniert und sich rückversichert, dass jeder im richtigen Bus für seine Tout sitzt. Unsere Gästeführerin Yiouli hat bereits während der Fahrt viele interessante Ingormationen zu Land und Leute gegeben, sodass die ca 2,5 Stunden bis Delphi nicht langweilig wurden. Auf dem Weg gibt es eine Pause. An der Ratsstätte können auch nochmal Getränke und Verpflegung gekauft werden. Zuerst erhielten wir eine kleine Führung von Yiouli in Delphi, bevor wir das Areal selber erkunden durften. Später wurden wir durch das Museum geführt und hielten nochmals an einem zweiten Punkt. Aufgrund der schlechten Bewertung buchten wir ohne Mittag - und dies war auch gut so. Für Selbstversorver aber auch schlechte Lösung. Alles in allem aber super Tour. Indiv. Drop-Off mögl.

“Great trip with great guide!” Everything was great with this trip: the professional guidance we got already from the start in Athens, the beautiful historical site of Delphi, and the tasty three course lunch.

“Delphi is erg indrukwekkend” Dag begon minder, omdat bus half uur te laat was. Gids wist veel te vertellen en Delphi is echt een aanrader. De lunch was prima verzorgd. Alleen jammer dat er niet even tijd was ingepland om souvenirs te kopen.

“AMAZING !!!! MUST DO THIS if you are Greece....” It doesn't get any more historical... or magnificent... the tour guide, Yiouli, was incredible. She knows so much and is so full of energy that the long tour seems to go by seamlessly. I could listen to her talk about Greek history and mythology for hours... this is a truly inspiring trip that should not be missed...

The tour was great. The guide, Anna, was very kind and interesting, and told us many things about Greek history and Greece as it is today. We learned a lot. The views on the way and in Delphi itself were spectacular. Great way to get out of the busy city and city a little of Greece.

We took a day tour from Athens to Delphi and back with Key tours. The tour consisted mostly of adults but we had our 7 year old son with us and he liked the tour as well. We were picked up in the Plaka, near our hotel and promptly at 8 as we were told we would be. From there, the bus made several more stops to pick up additional tourists and then we left Athens for Delphi. The bus was clean, modern and pretty much what you'd expect of a tour bus. I'm a tall person and I fit into my seat just fine. During the 3 hour ride up to Delphi, the tour guide gave us all sorts of information and pointed out historical sites along the way and we made one stop halfway for bathrooms and drinks. Upon reaching Delphi, we saw the temple of Apollo for about an hour and then made our way to the museum where we spent about 45 minutes looking around while the tour guide gave us highlights on certain objects in the museum. Overall I thought the museum was very well done and informative. After leaving the museum, we stopped at a local restaurant where we were served a pasta lunch with some Greek food items and only the drinks were not included in the tour price. After lunch, we made a couple more short stops to look at the very pretty mountainous landscape surrounding Delphi before heading back to Athens. We returned to Athens about 8 pm that evening and the tour guide was very accommodating with letting people be dropped off where they wanted to. I thought it was a very well run tour and a very good deal for the price. It does make for a long day but you're sitting for a good part of it. I definitely recommend this day tour to Delphi to anyone who has limited time in the Athens area and is looking to see more of ancient Greece.

We took the 1 day tour from Athens to Delphi and truly enjoyed the bus ride and information throughout the drive and the sites. Our guide Yuoilia and driver Costas did a great job at keeping us informed and safe as we made our way through the mountains and scenic small towns. It was a treat to see the millions of olive trees in the valley groves. Will definitely book another excursion with Key Tours!
