Fun fun fun! On both activities the guides were great and knew their stuff. I learned a lot both about the Acroplis in Athens and the Delphi site. Make sure you do the City tour early because the ticket you get for Acroplis is good for others sites in the city such as the Roman Agora. The tour company actually call the hotel the day before to confirm pick up time! That's great service!
This tour has the best of Athens, the tour guide was great and knew a lot about the history. Delphi was a great trip with amazing views, and full of history. This was a great opportunity to visit different landscapes in a short time.
This was an excellent tour. Guide was great and very imformative.
The Delphi tour was very an excellent tour. Very much worth it and so very interesting! The 1/2 day tour was good, just crowded and so much harder to manage the Acropolis in a big group! The New Acropolis Museum with our guide was fantastic though. I would highly recommend this tour to newcomers to Athens!
It was raining, so the tour guide just pointed out temple of Athens instead of leading us there to walk around. I saw in the past review other guests were allowed to go there. Temple of Apollo was amazing

Our guides answered all our questions and were very knowledgable. Views were WONDERFUL!!!
The tour was enjoyable and the guide was very knowledgeable. We learned a lot more about the sights we visited than we would have on our own. The downside was the size of the group and the many pick up spots around Athens. We had an early pick up point and sat on the bus waiting for people who had not arrived on time or were not ready. Would have preferred to sleep in rather than driving around Athens on a bus picking up people from various locations.
these were 2 different tours over 2 days with 2 different guides + experiences -- difficult to rate as a combined rating.
I would rate Delphi as a 4 (recommend - guide clear, informative + pleasure to listen to) and Athens as a 2 (could understand guide, thou was repetitive + difficult to listen to) !!
This review is difficult to write as it comprises two tours, both of whic were on opposite ends of the spectrum.
The first tour, Athens, was incredible. Joy was fantastic as she kept the tour moving, was kind and courteous and really brought the history to life in her descriptions. She answered all questions and even stayed after to make sure we all had directions for where we wanted to go next. I highly recommend her and the Athens tour. Five stars!
The Delphi tour was a different story. The Delphi tour deserves 1 star. Don't get me wrong, the actual area was incredible, it was the tour guide who was awful. Her name was Lila and she droned on and on talking about silly details,but failing to point out what the large pieces of architecture was. If you asked any questions she claimed that she had already answered it and then shamed you in front of the group. During the tour she left 10 min to walk around the magnificent area which left no time to see anything on your own. On the way back, instead of letting us nap she talked loudly on the microphone telling a historically inaccurate version of the Oedipus Rex story.
Recap: do the Athens and Delphi tours, just make sure you don't have Lila. I honestly want my money back for the Delphi tour. She ruined it that bad.
The tour guide for the Athens sightseeing tour kept racing ahead and I was unable to keep up with the tour. Consequently I unfortunately missed much of the tour.The tour guide for the Delphi day trip appeared to be knowledgeable about Delphi and kept to a mangeable pace during the tour of the Delphi site.However, the mini van/coach for the day tour was cramp and uncomfortable with very little leg room .
