This trip to Delphi was no good although the guide person worked and did well under tough circumstances. The Delphi museum was closed, so 1/2 the tour was eliminated but no refund offered. It was pouring rain for the whole outdoor tour of Delphi. The guide told everyone to return for the bus after his guiding us around the site and said please return in 45 minutes. An American family of four returned after 1 and 25 minutes while all of us got more wet standing in the rain waiting for them. The bus due to parking restrictions can't park for long to pick you up. So the guide had to wait for these inconsiderate 4 people while everyone else got angrier at them. I feel the Tour people have to make sure those travelers who take too long will be left behind. Also, Delphi without the museum is not a great tour.
This was our first time in Athens, and our fist tour. My wife and I are 65+ but we enjoyed this tour and our wonderful guide. She took her time explaining the sights on the Acropolis in the shade. We were there June 14th and it was a very warm day. We took the morning tour, and were glad we were not there in the afternoon. Our guide was very good talking about the Parthenon and when she took us for about 1 and 1/2 hours to the Acropolis museum. This was a well designed tour that got one familiar with the ancient areas of Athens. The hotel bus pick up and drop off worked well for no increased fee and was a bonus. I recommend this tour highly.
