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).

We really enjoyed the history of Greece given by the tour leader. She was excellent. Since we were there the day before the referendum, there was more emotion about the recent history of Greece than usual... The bus ride was beautiful and relaxing and educational and the destination is AMAZING. Our daughter, who just graduated in Classics, was overwhelmed by the place. We are so glad we went, and very glad we chose the Lunch option as it was delicious. Thank you! Judith

Martina is incredibly knowledgeable and I was happy that I had her as my guide a few days before so I knew her style. Too bad she doesn't do museum tours or else I would have booked those with her too. :P

Informative guide. Well run day, with plenty of time at the ruins and the museum. Lunch provided at hotel was delicious, service was great. Nice to stop in the village on way back to Athens. Returned back to our hotel, much appreciated.

We really enjoyed this tour. Delphi is a beautiful archaeological site to visit, the tour guide was excellent, and the pacing of the trip was very good. We were picked up at our hotel at 8:00 am, and were back by 7:00 pm. I felt we had enough time to enjoy the ruins and the museum. We purchased the optional lunch it was just ok. However, it was nice to not be rushed while trying to find an alternative place to eat, so I am glad we purchased the lunch option.

the tour bus driver and the tour guide were both excellent and the site is fantastic. My only complaint was lunch - far too rushed, food OK, but nothing to remember, wine glasses on the table, but no wine and couldn't order wine.
