Extremely well run. Joy, our guide, was absolutely awesome. She was obviously really enthusiastic about the place and the history. I don't usually do guided tours but did this because I was travelling alone and really pleased that I did it. Highly recommended
This is quite a long day tour but the experience of visiting the spectacular site at Delphi is not to be missed. The tour is well paced with rest breaks on both forward and return journeys.The guide was knowledgeable and answered all sorts of questions. Her guiding in the museum gave us a good insight into Greek art. The lunch stop was the least good aspect of the tour but there are few options for group dining in the area and in order to spend the maximum amount of time possible at the site, the choice of restaurant was quite understandable. Upon arrival back in Athens, the guide made sure that people were all dropped back to their separate hotels.
The tour has been great! The place is wonderful - both for history and myth lovers and nature lovers. Additionally the guide was wonderful and that brought about the whole experience!
In and of itself, Delphi is an impressive site. We enjoyed visiting the museum and ruins in conjunction with the information provided by our knowledgeable and pleasant tour guide. The bus ride to and from Delphi is long 3 hours each way, but it is a comfortable ride that includes a rest stop and commentary which makes the time pass quickly.
Long drive through the country side to reach the ruins. It was very hot and there was little escape from the sun. Ruins are extensive and our guide Joy provided in depth information about the site and museum. The museum was amazing with ancient sculptures and other finds from the ruins at Delphi. We chose lunch on our own in town and had a delicious mousaka at To Patriko mas Tavern. Open air seating under a 200 year old mulberry tree over looking a view of the valley to the sea. Would have liked to linger but had to return to the bus for our ride back to Athens. If you only have time for one tour, this is the one to do.
Great tour. Guide was knowledgeable, interesting and funny! Delphi is a magical place. The museum is worthwhile and not too large. Even the included lunch was very good and the view from the restaurant was spectacular.
The bus ride is a bit long, and we started by spending an hour picking up folks at another hotel. Other than that, it was very delightful. Our guide was entertaining and informative. She could really tell a story. The scenery was incredible. The site was fascinating and the lunch was generous and good. Our two stops - one coming and one going - on the bus were well-timed and at convenient and accommodating locations. They could not have made our time any better. And we enjoyed the people we met on the bus from different parts of the United States and perhaps other countries too. It was great.
Wonderful tour to go on. This tour was an incredible place to visit and the tour guide was very experienced.
We liked getting picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Our guide, Lila, was brilliant and friendly, spoke well, and worked very professionally. The bus ride felt comfortable and safe. Lunch was quite good. In short, the tour gave us the opportunity to enjoy Delos and the museum at their fullest.
The tour director was one of the best we have ever had. It was like taking a 3 credit hour course in college.
Completely enjoyable day with great facilitation and narrative from Guide, Joy.
Our trip was fantastic! Our guide was wonderful and happy to answer questions in detail.
Lovely tour guide who was very informative and passionate. Great tour from start to end but the lunch was fairly average.
Excellent day trip! Tour guide was very informative and made the ruins come to life. I would highly recommend this excursion!
This tour was amazing! I loved everything about it except the hot weather but thats out of anyones control unless you pray to Zeus lol. Anyways, i highly recommend this tour!
Excellent guide, informative and funny. The scenery was amazing and the site itself well worth the coach journey to get there
Spectacular views both on the drive as you're getting closer and when you arrive. As you climb up, remember to stop and take a look back/around otherwise you'll miss it - the views looking down are just as amazing as looking up.
Once the tour guide is done and gives you some time to make it to the top on your own - ask how long it should take you to get down. My friends and I didn't, so we assumed wrong and were a bit late to the museum tour.
We had a wonderful trip to Delphi. The tour guide was very knowledgable and spoke wonderful English. She told our group lots of interesting facts and stories about Greek history and the Greek gods. If you want a well-planned and neatly organized trip, then this I highly recommend this this one.
I'm glad I signed up for this tour. The views were amazing! The stadium and theater are almost completely intact, which is very different from most of the other historical sites. The museum is very lovely as well. Lunch was absolutely delicious.
Really fun! The guide was very knowledgeable and the entire trip was worth it. Great value! Glad I did it!
Great tour full of lots of information about Delphi and its importance to Greece. Great trip to the Delphi museum as well
