Great day with a fabulous guide. Delphi is beautiful and if you do one trip out of Athens then make it to here. Lunch was great with 3 very good courses and I had a fabulous time on this trip.
My wife and children travelled by a minibus. Excellent tour for young and old ! The guide knew everything from Athens to Delphi. We didn't take the lunch option. There are places to get food, and just nice to walk around the area.
We had a great day. Our tour guide for the day (so sorry can't remember her name) had such a passion for what she was telling us that you couldn't help but want to hear more and more. We went on our own for lunch to Delphi town and sat outside at a restaurant and had a wonderful meal. A thoroughly enjoyable day. Thank you.
This was a fantastic tour and well worth the money. The guide, who was excellent, gave information not only about the actual temple and surrounding buildings at Delphi but also about every place of interest on the journey. She also added information about various areas of Greece and the myths and legends connected to them. An excellent lunch was included so this trip was most interesting, enjoyable and informative.
This tour was simply amazing. If you go to Athens, you HAVE to go to Delphi, its an easy one day trip, with lunch included, which was at an amazing restaurant down from the mountaintop, we feasted like kings and the staff was super friendly and warm. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and excited to explain all about Delphi. We got to see all of the major sites and had time during the one day trip to explore the museum there with the guide explaining everything in great detail that we were seeing. The ONLY issue about the one day version of this tour is that it does not leave enough time to go down to the Sanctuary of Athena, where the famed Tholos is. If you are quick you can basically jog down there after the main tour and catch back up with the group once they are in the museum. I wasn't going to miss this opportunity so the guide was helpful in telling me to go down to the Tholos first and then come back up to the museum, I had time to do both and was grateful I got to see everything. Easily the best money spent on my trip.
The tour was great. Joy our guide was very informative and we felt we learned a lot. Everything ran on time from the hotel pick-up through to the end of the trip. Our group was small and there was a nice mix of free time and being guided. April is a good time to visit Delphi as the weather is sunny but the temperatures are mild. The museum at Delphi houses the original pieces from Delphi and has some unique treasures. The countryside heading into the mountains and passing through a ski village adds to the trip.
We loved this tour! Our guide was informative and interesting. The lunch was good and the museum tour was educational and not too long. Delphi is a gorgeous place-- if you are visiting Athens, be sure to travel up to Delphi.

Doing what: 3-Day Classical Greece Tour: Epidaurus, Mycenae, Nafplion, Olympia, Delphi
After decades, it was great to return to see Epidaurus, Mycenae and Delphi; and to see Olympia for the first time. The new museums at the sites are excellent. The hotels and our guide Casandra were wonderful.
Nice day trip out of Athens. It was raining a bit on that day but it didn't spoilt the experience. Delphi is a lovely place and we enjoyed the tour.
Our tour guide was terrific, she told us all about the mythology of Ancient Greece and knew all about Delphi and the sites we passed along the way. The only issue with this trip is that there was limited time in Arahova, the adorable skiing village nearby, and that our tour was a bit rushed.
I had a great day going to Delphi. They were on time picking me up from my hotel, I had emailed the company before hand and they confirmed my reservation and pickup. Just the right amount of time at site. Lunch was fair, but best to purchase it as there are no other good options around the stop.
Do not get lunch included! Was an excellent tour, tour guide was lovely. Bus arrived on time, lots of historic information. Would've liked to have spent the lunch hour in the town of Delphi rather than the resturant we were taken to. Had a beautiful view of the harbour but was one of my least favourite meals whilst I was there. Also would've liked more time in Delphi but I guess they can't keep everyone happy :)
Bus schedule was excellent with on time departure. Tourist guide was friendly and shared Greece culture on the bus. She did a good job in providing basic Delphi background but the free time spent in walking around the site was only limited to approximately 1 hr. Lunch was so so but hotel was nice.
Perfect time of the year for the trip. It was quite a long drive,made very comfortable. Knowledgeable,well spoken tour guide. Had few coffee breaks in between the travel which made the drive tolerable at ease. Delphi is surrounded by picturesque,breath taking landscaping. Amazing!
This was a spectacular day! It was interesting to get out of Athens and see some of the countryside. Delphi itself is amazing - a place I have read about for years. It did not disappoint. The excavations are extensive, the view over the valley is stunning. Yes, it is a bit of a climb which could be difficult for some people on a hot day and could probably get very crowded but we were there in October so neither was a problem for us.
