What You Can Expect

Athens Super Saver: Athens Sightseeing Tour plus Delphi Day Trip

Athens Super Saver: Athens Sightseeing Tour plus Delphi Day Trip

Athens Half-Day Sightseeing Tour (Morning of Day 1 or Day 2 – your choice):


Board your air-conditioned coach at your central Athens hotel or central Athens meeting point, and set out on your morning tour, with an expert guide.

Sit back and enjoy the views over Athens’ historical and modern highlights. Circle around Omonia Square and see the Greek Parliament House at Syntagma Square, where the Changing of the Guard takes place.  Pass the Panathenaic Stadium, the all-marble arena that was the stage for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, and then take a guided walking tour of Athens’ Acropolis.

Once the upper city of ancient Athens, this UNESCO-listed complex consists of many magnificent monuments that reflect the glory of the city in classical times. View the Temple of Athena Nike; the Erechtheion, and the stunning Parthenon, and learn about their remnants and treasures at the New Acropolis Museum.

Your morning tour then ends when you bid farewell to your guide.

Delphi Day Trip (Day 1 or Day 2 – your choice):


Hop inside your air-conditioned coach in the morning and begin your trip to Delphi, one of Greece’s most famous classical treasures.

As you travel northwest to this important site, situated on the slopes of Mt Parnassus, listen as your guide details its history and how its main temple, dedicated to the god Apollo, was home to the Delphic oracle. 

After a stop in the town of Levadia, continue to the winter ski resort of Arachova below Mt Parnassus. Stroll around this pretty town, famous for its flokati woollen rugs, and then drive on to Delphi proper.

Enjoy a guided tour of the ruins, including the 4th-century BC Temple of Delphi where the oracle — a priestess — delivered her prophecies. See the reconstructed Athenian Treasury and the 5th-century BC stadium, the setting of long-ago musical contests and later, the Pythian Games — athletics competitions held every four years from 582 BC. 

While you’re here, visit the Delphi Archaeological Museum. Explore the rooms of artifacts excavated at the site, viewing everything from sculptures of the athletes, to oracle offerings and a beautiful bronze statue of a charioteer.
Take a break from your explorations for an included lunch in Delphi town. Visit a local restaurant and sit down to a delicious meal of Greek dishes.

When the time comes, return to Athens, where your tour finishes at the start point.
