Traveler Tips


Bring water and wear comfortable walking shoes that you don’t mind getting dusty as by the end of the day I had walked approximately 10 kilometers (~6 miles).
We also recommend not buying the added lunch option as you eat at the same restaurant regardless, so you have the option to choose what you get.

Kavetha_V, Sep 2022
Horrible, I requested for 24th and they booked 3 tours for me all on same date. Now that I moved it finally and they were supposed to pick up at Brown Acropol at 7:45 am and I have been waiting since 7:30 no bus and finally they asked me to get a taxi to their office. Where I waited another hour and Finally they put me on a bus.

We loved the entire trip....
Terri_M, Aug 2022
We loved the entire trip. The bus ride with guide was informative and we learned a bit more about Greece as we traveled the countryside. Delphi was amazing, we loved our lunch and sharing a table with fellow travelers was fun. The one challenge, which I'm not sure how you would correct it was using the individual sound systems to hear our guide at the museum in Delphi. The museum was very crowded so I often was too far away to see what she was talking about. It made the discussion less relevant and it was more helpful to read the plaques attached to exhibits. However we moved at a pace that made the time needed to read the plaques difficult.
Exception tour guide.
Steven_G, Jul 2022
Anastasia was an exceptional guide who provided extensive description on Greek history as well as insights about Delphi. Very helpful suggestions on things to do in Athens aa well. Lots of walking up inclines so not suitable for those with walking challenges. Very nice clean air conditioned busses. Highly recommend this tour. Hotel pickup is available despite inability to select it on Viator site. Just send email to tour operator.
Delphi explained
Mickey_K, Aug 2022
Marianna was a truly amazing and well spoken guide on our day trip. She was patient and clear with all explanations. She truly brought the past to life while sharing stories and information. A remarkable tour.
Outstanding tour around Delphi
Glaiza_Q, Aug 2022
The tour to Delphi was amazing and very enjoyable. I joined the tour with around 20-25 other tourists in a bus from Athens. Kosta, our tour guide gave us comprehensive and interesting accounts of Greek history, myths, and legends that we pictured on our ride to Delphi. Despite the volume of tourists at Delphi, being summer and all, I still enjoyed the ruins and the Delphi museum as the tour was very organized.
Delphi Deilight

Our tour guide was wonderful! Easy to understand, knowledgeable. Site is absolutely fantastic! Worth the trip.
It's a long trek to and...
Spencer_R, Jul 2022
It's a long trek to and from the site, but was definitely worth the wait. The view alone once you're at Delphi was incredible and probably the highlight for us. Would definitely recommend hiking further up with your short amount of free time. Really enjoyed the restaurant where we stopped for dinner as well.
An Excellent Tour of Delphi
HNewton_W, Sep 2022
The tour guide, Konstantinos was very professional and personable. He shared his extensive professorial knowledge in a very understandable manner. He us one of the best guides we have had during many years of travel.
Hotel Pickup does not actually mean Hotel Pickup
Tzeitel_W, Jul 2022
We sent our hotel name & address well in advance of our trip in response to an email from this tour site. The next time I heard from them was less than 24 hrs before the scheduled booking. Again they were requesting our hotel address for pick-up. I was informed—again, this was less than 24 hrs prior to the date of tour, therefore too late to cancel with refund—that they do not pick up from our hotel. To be clear, our hotel was in a central location, just a few blocks from Monastiraki and with an ample street to accomodate a charter bus. I was told that we would have to be at their address by 8:15a for departure. We got lost and arrived at 8:30a. The bus had left without us. This was the only tour of the three on our trip that I would not recommend. At a minimum, they should have reimbursed our $200+.
Amazing site to see
peggy_T, Aug 2022
The tour was very clear and understanding. Stathos and Thomas the driver were very accommodating and knowledgeable

Great storytelling

Katarina was an amazing guide and told many interesting stories about Delphi, the artifacts and the surrounding area. Very full with tourists but it’s the end of the high season.

Good - Pros and Cons
Casey_M, Aug 2022
Pros about this tour: Delphi is beautiful! As is the surrounding area, breathtaking views, passed through an adorable ski town, and between the archeological site and the museum there are incredible pieces of art and architecture dating back to the BC era. Definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience for archeology/history/art/culture people. The guide is incredibly knowledgeable given his many years of studying archeology and providing tours all over. The bus is comfy and has air con. Cons: It was not worth making the trip during the summer, so please be mindful of the heat/weather when you go, as you will be outside for a good portion of the tour, and we were in 34C/97F heat. The bathrooms are only outside of the museum so you have to make sure to go before you enter. While our guide was knowledgeable, we felt he could have shortened some of his talks at each stopping point, as people started to wander and lose focus a little. They were interesting just a little lengthy, and offering people the option to explore freely sooner or whenever might have helped. The guide talks through an ear piece so you don't need to be standing right in front to hear his talks. **If you do this tour, just get the included meal. We opted not to do it because we were under the impression that there would be other options around town to go eat at. That is NOT the case. We had no choice but to end up at the same restaurant as them, where we proceeded to wait several minutes for our orders and food, and then were rushed through the meal to meet our timing, while the included people sat right down to a full 5 course meal that they ate leisurely and finished on time for. Wouldn't not recommend, just some things I wish I had known going into the tour that I wanted to share with others before they make their decision

Great trip
Bertha_A, Sep 2022
Mariann and Zachariah were absolutely wonderful. We enjoyed the thorough explanation and thoughtfulness put into the trip.
Example of Greece
Robin_D, Sep 2022
Climb to the top. That so many important people would journey this far this high to determine their future
Long ride
Vilma_S, Sep 2022
Delphi was lovely and Viki our guide was very knowledgeable. However the bus ride there and back is way too long. Especially coming back with all the traffic. It would be nice to have this tour with the option of not stopping for lunch. A waste of over an hour. It would also be nice to have the hour in the adorable town of anchorva, instead of the arranged lunch stop. The menu price is pretty high compared to the rest of Greece. Also worth mentioning is you cannot bring your own food n drink on the bus , only water. This should be mentioned at time of booking
Great trip!!! Terrible lunch :(
James_R, Sep 2022
This trip was great and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for activity while in Athens. Our guide was great, very informative without being boring. My only complaint with the entire trip wouldve been lunch. We paid for lunch as part of the excursion (which I think was the cheaper than paying there) but I was easily the worst meal of our entire 10-day trip. We didnt get to pick food- we had 2 options for main course and the rest was pre-selected. My chicken had maybe 3 bites of meat and the rest was just bone. Plus drinks arent included (not even water) so you end up paying a little anyway. I wouldnt rather have paid a little more for a meal I may have liked more. But whether you include the meal or not, you have to eat at that restaurant because that is where they take you and there are no other places nearby. Aside from the terrible meal, the trip was AMAZING!
A great historical excursion
