Why Travelers Choose This Tour
This experience includes a mix of guided tours and free time to explore Delphi at your own pace.
Hotel pickup wasted a lot of time. 90 minutes. Six hours of travel for three hours of tour not counting hotel pick up. Guide was fluent in English but her acsent made it difficult to understand. Large group of 42. Would not recommend
The site was spectacular and worth seeing even with the long drive. However two things they could do to improve. The guide while knowledgeable had a pretty heavy accent and a very soft voice so hard to hear. Not just me but most. Should have also give more time to see the amphitheater and stadium. Only had 25 minutes after the visit to the temple. Needed about 45. and tour should have at least gone to the base of the amphitheater. I would also say no young kids or people that can't walk easily and take steps
We loved Delphi but the group was an entire large bus with one guide and it was so large and Delphi was so crowded, we had a hard time following and hearing our guide. I am not faulting our guide but I would not book another tour if it was to be a large group like this one again.
The pick up was a bit late and we had to change to a different bus but the drive there was amazingly beautiful. The guide was really informative mixing history and myth. The actual site was stunning! It was really crowded though and I think that annoyed the tour guide. The museum was ok though. FYI don’t book with lunch they’ll drop you off at the town of Delphi where my friends and I found a really good souvlaki place that was a really decent price.
Enjoyed the tour, very informative and friendly tour guide. It was a large group, so there was some waiting around for people. We opted for the lunch at the Hotel Amalia - very nice Greek salad and vegetable sides, chicken was okay. All in all a very nice day! Would definitely recommend.
This was a wonderful tour, or give was very educated on Greek history, but never made it boring. The bus ride was great, and comfortable. The time at Delphi was amazing, had plenty of time to see everything. Would highly recommend this tour.
If you love all the ruins this would be a definite. It was a long way out 3 hours but the guide definitely gave you an insight into the history and some stories of ancient Greece. It was lovely to get out of the city and just see the mountains very high up and you drive through a couple of mountainous villiages. The lunch was held at a nearby hotel but if you didn't pay for lunch you were dropped off in a villiage and picked up on the way back. I wish we had done that instead of the hotel which was pretty basic. The museum was good and I really liked some of the pieces in there as it was only small you didn't need much time and the guide got through it in about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
