We were very excited to get out of Athens and were very surprised at the beautiful scenery in Delphi. If you are prone to motion sickness, or car sickness, please be advised! Take some Dramamine or bring ginger ale with you! Good walking shoes and comfortable clothing are a must!
That was very nice trip, but to short time in Delphi. If peoplec try to go and see the Stadium, there wern't time for rest
We took this tour on July 8th. We were the first to be picked-up at our hotel about 7:30 am and we returned about 6:00 pm that evening. The overall trip was great. It’s a long drive out after they collected all the other guest around Athens, but it was a pleasant drive and certainly worth the wait. The guide used the bus travel time to explain the mythology and history associated to the site and region. It was a great way to understand what we were about to see. A single stop on the way out to grab a coffee/stretch your legs for maybe 20 minutes at a roadside coffee stop. At Delphi the bus dropped us off at the main area and we enjoyed a guided walking tour, followed by some free time to take pictures, or walk up further, and then we ended the visit with a guided tour in the museum. Our guide did a great job in all aspects. We used our free time to walk around and get some great pictures. I think we had about 45~50 minutes to ourselves before we had to meet up in the museum. When we left Delhi we went for lunch in the local town to Hotel Amalia . Meal was local cuisine and fine. Some on our tour group elected to skip the lunch and instead had the time to walk around the Delphi village. I think the lunch was the better option as the town is pretty much closed during summer months with a few local tourist stores open. When we continued back we did have a break in Parnassos which really is a ski village so not too many stores open in summer, plus it was Sunday. Maybe in the winter months this would be better. I think we could have skipped this stop since it really was only 15 minutes after we started our drive back to Athens. We returned back to Athens about 6pm and very glad we went out to see the Oracle of Delphi.
One of the highlights of our trips. The drive to Delphi from Athens is breathtakingly beautiful, the guide was one of the best and knowledgable I ever have met. We saw the entire site, learned a lot about the history and importance of Delphi to Greek mythology and legends, and had a great time seeing the Museum and artifacts. While it may seem like a long day trip, we count this as one of our Top 10 must see's when going to Greece. You will love it!
The day trip to Delphi was most enjoyable and informative.
The guide was clear and knowledgeable. He paced the walking reasonably for all in the group.
A walking stick would be helpful for those with difficulty climbing the hill and negotiating rough paths.
The guide was also excellent in the museum and surprised everyone at the end with the famous
Charioteer bronze. Well done.
The landscapes were breath-taking and the history rich! It was a must-see for anyone spending time in Athens.
A good-albeit-long tour up to Delphi with a knowledgeable and charismatic guide. Delphi is - to be honest - a bit on the dull side, but it's a nice tour run well, and a good chance to see Greece's inland. Our one recommendation is to skip the included lunch and go to Ταβέρνα Βάκχος, which was the absolute highlight of our trip!
This was a wonderful tour. I really enjoyed this tour. It was a hot day and Im glad I brought shorts and a hat.
This was a very worthwhile tour. It shows the importance of Delphi and its significance in Greek mythological history. The tour guide was wonderful. He was a veritable encyclopedia of knowledge about Greek history and mythology. He was able to explain the details in understandable terms. The ruins give you a real feel of what it must have been like during the ancient period.
I wish I could give this trip 10 stars, it was a highlight of my life.
