This tour was wonderful in a number of ways, most significantly as I was able to book it the night before with the help of Viator customer support and access to the tour operator after another company had cancelled my Delphi Day Tour. Delphi was one of my primary destinations for this trip and I am really grateful to the operator of CHAT Tours for accommodating me for the comfortable 2 day bus tour and also for coordinating a last minute memorable pilgrimage and private tour opportunity with a driver to the Lion of Chaeronea.
The tour each day was about 50 people which was way too large. The guides did not use audio devices so it was hard to hear them and everyone either jostled close to the guide trying to hear, or lost interest and wandered away. The bus each day was completely full, and the seats so close together it was painful, worse than Economy Class on a cheap airline. And finally, on the Delphi trip, we were taken for lunch to the Hotel Amalia, and it was perhaps the most disgusting meal I have ever had. The hostess was a Gorgon who demanded we sit where she arbitrarily placed us without reference to our friends and traveling companions. We were placed at a table for 6, with a Japanese couple and an Italian couple, none of whom spoke English well, but all of whom wanted to practice on us. Every table around us was served first, and in some cases, were getting seconds, before we were served. Every time the Gorgon passed behind me with her tray I got her buttocks against my neck. The food was appalling. Chicken in congealed grease, eggplant swimming in oil, and roasted potatoes that were stone cold. We were never offered drinks other than water, though all other tables were. It was truly awful, and I cannot imagine why you would use this restaurant.
Trips via bus that are longer than two hours require buses with bathrooms onboard or more frequent pit spots. It wasnt fun to have the guide announce over the intercom to all other passengers that we were making an emergency bathroom stop for a single passenger. Another step in the right direction would be improvements on the wi-if service.
The tour was fantastic and our guide was clearly knowledgeable about the sights and the city in general. I would've loved more time sightseeing though! The time just flew past us in Delphi and in Athens, so if anything, I'd just want the tour to be a little longer to allow us time to take in everything. :
I wish I would have saved myself some money and just booked a tour to Delphi and not include the Athens Sightseeing tour. Both trips provide a tour guide that is very knowledgeable of the history of the sites. The difference was that Acropolis and the acropolis museum get way too crowded, and it makes it hard to even listen to what your tour guide is saying. We ended up just leaving the Athens tour to wander around the area ourselves.
