5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Delphi was one of my favourite parts of my time in Greece. I HIGHLY recommend the 2-day option. Many folks who were on the 1-day tour said to me that they felt they didn't get to see everything. I had a whole 24 hours on my own to explore the town (which has a great many charming tavernas and interesting shops, so bring lots of euros and space in your bag for your treasures!). The hotel that the tour booked for me (Hotel Amalia) was very pleasant, with a beautiful lounge, pool, and restaurant where my supper and breakfast were included (and the food was very good, the service excellent). I really liked going through the archeological site with the tour guide, then being able to return on my own to explore with more time the next day. It was great to be picked up and dropped off at my hotel in Athens, so I didn't have to worry about a thing from start to finish. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Our trip was safe and wonderful, on time and everything I expected. The hotel we stayed in was clean, modern and felt good to stay in. Thanks

This was a very good tour. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I stayed over night to experience the town at night and the hotel was very nice. Food was passable but reasonable. The only thing I would suggest is that it is a really long day with lunch not until 3 pm after all the traveling and the tour were over, so suggest taking a sandwich and or snacks and drinks as none provided until lunch. Worth it all to see the Charioteer in the museum.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

The trip was great and the hotel was very nice. The tour guide was nice but at times seemed a bit distracted and not very enthusiastic/interested. Would recommend this trip to friends

4 star rating: Recommended October 2014

We took the 2 day tour as I read on the web time was needed to see Delphi
Our tour guide Dimitra was very good and wove info on modern Greek life into the Classical Greek narrative
However, a number of people with us on the one day tour were clearly disappointed at the time available at the site and museum - it was quite short
We were able to spend hours at the site and museum next day before joining another one day trip back to Athens
The people on this trip were clearly annoyed at the time available AND the guide who was hard to understand and quite 'wooden' in his narrative. We got the impression that this bus load couldn't wait to bail out in Athens - and they did as soon as they could

Deplhi is really interesting although worth making it up to the stadium at the top of the main site which needs a brsik walk in timie avialble. the 2 day trip means you can go back and see the ruins below the main site which are free and revist the museum which is well woth a second visit. Hotel a litlle spartan but nice!

4 star rating: Recommended May 2012

This was by far the best trip I booked with Viator. Great information, helpful guide, and an amazing hotel to stay in for the night. The only down side was that the visit at the archeological site was a little rushed. I would highly highly recommend this trip. One day is definitely not enough to appreciate this magnificent site, and the adorable town nearby. But this two day stay is the perfect amount of time. The hotel they chose for us was spectacular, with an ocean view, pool, delicious breakfast and dinner provided, and a bar near reception. Loved this trip.
