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 October 2015

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.

Very nice tour.

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.

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.
