What You Can Expect

Delphi Day Trip from Athens

Delphi, Greece

Ancient Greece is the civilization that existed roughly between the 8th century BC and 600 AD, and Delphi was said to represent the center of it. Reputedly built on the spot where Zeus’ eagles collided when they were released from opposite ends of the earth, the ancient town is littered with intriguing monuments from this fascinating period of history.

After meeting your guide in Athens, hear tales about the ancient Greeks and their lives in Delphi while traveling to the town by luxury minivan. Pass through the towns of Levadia and Arachova – both famous for their production of brightly colored carpets – and arrive in Delphi around midday.

First stop is a tour of the Delphi archeological site – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and easily one of the most important digs in Europe. As you walk around the evocative ruins with your guide, see famous monuments like the Temple of Apollo.

Head inside Delphi Archeological Museum and explore this veritable treasure trove at leisure. Home to countless artifacts and intriguing relics, the museum consists of 15 rooms arranged in chronological order from 15th century BC to 4th century AD. Be sure to check out the bronze Charioteer of Delphi and the Sphinx of Naxos.

After eating lunch at a Delphi hotel (own expense), you will return to Athens, stopping in Arachova on the way to stretch your legs or grab a coffee (own expense).

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This was an excellent tour, full of information beginning on the bus. The tour leader provided general and many specific pieces of information that strongly evoked the history of the place and what the experience must have been like in ancient times. The driver of the bus did an excellent job as well.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

The tour to Delphi was one of the highlights of our trip to Greece. Our guide, Kostas, was very knowledgeable and informative. He made the trip especially interesting by blending history, religion, politics and culture in his narration. After visiting the Archaeological Museum at Delphi, my 10-year-old daughter said, "That was so cool!" That is high praise from a child. The motor coach was very comfortable, and the lunch arranged at the Hotel Amalia was lovely. The trip was at just the right pace, not too strenuous, but sufficient time to enjoy the surroundings, take photos and relax. It was also nice to escape the hustle and bustle of Athens for a day. Overall, this was a great tour!
