Traveler Tips


It was very hot, both at the site and inside the museum so do bring hat, sunscreen, sunglasses and water, as our guide recommended.
If you are prone to motion sickness, or car sickness, please be advised!
The tour has a lot of walking and climbing, so it is important to know that not everybody can handle the hiking part, however the ruins have a wonderful story and history.

Great day trip
Elizabeth_M, Jun 2022
A lovely excursion out of Athens for a solo traveler. I especially likes that it was a small group, that makes a huge difference. The guide ( I think Catherine) was great, just the right amount of guiding.
Delphi dilemma

5star excellence for tour guide, Zetta and bus driver! However, bus didn’t provide water or cold water. Worst: NO BATHROOM on bus.

The tour guide was very helpful, lunch was very good at the hotel. The views are beautiful, Athens is a beautiful city I will come back again
Safe, informative and definitely worth it
sindu_s, Jun 2022
Pros: Tour guide was very informative about the mythologies and history, was able to give narrations regarding the history, very safe driving, flexible with time (we were given more time to see the temples and ruins because of crowds etc.). Cons: during the temple of Apollo visit it can get very crowded and because there is no clear distinction between tour groups it was hard to spot other members from your tour, tour group could have also briefed us on where we could go should we find ourselves lost from the tour (like maybe directions back to the bus) which was why I felt coordination was a bit messy. Other than that, we got lunch included and felt like we could’ve given that deal a miss because we lost out on being able to walk around the Ara Chova city and have a lunch there (plus the 4-course meal was not something to rave about) Would definitely give this tour an 8/10, a few kinks to figure out but otherwise really good tour.

Great tour and lunch. ...
Bill_S, Jun 2022
Great tour and lunch. Guide was very insightful and provided a good history of the site and why it was important.
Very interesting and educational - even with 3-17 yo ladies
Rachael_C, Jun 2022
It was a very interesting and educational trip. Our guide was beyond knowledgeable; she also took care and comfort of every need. We had 3-17 yo ladies and they all loved it as well.
Fun Delphi Tour
Darshan_S, Jun 2022
The guide was very pleasant. The bus ride was fun. Overall it made for a very enjoyable and informative Delphi tour. I suggest to take the tour with lunch option.
Would recommend 👌

Lovely tour! Site was amazing, wear comfortable shoes. We walked all the way to the top totally worth it! The included lunch exceeded our expectations.
Nice experience
Gary_H, Jun 2022
The coach bus was very nice, however no drinks or food were allowed only water. Our tour guide was very friendly but his speaking style was a bit hard to follow and repetitive .
Great excursion
Olga_P, Jun 2022
Fantastic trip to Delphi. Tour guide was wonderful amd driver was great. Amazing view and archeological site. I highly recommend it !!
Great for history and ruins buff
YatMinNicholas_Y, Jun 2022
Overall coordination and organization is good for the trip. Drive is around 3 hrs (total of 6hrs). Start off is around 0830 and back by 1830hrs. There is also a 1hr lunch. That’s 7hrs of lunch and on the road out of a total of 10ths trip. If you are a history and ruins buff. It is worth it. Else you may find yourself spending much time on the road a waste.
Great tour.
Kristy_D, Jun 2022
Great tour. Pick-up was a little chaotic but once we were on our way it was great. Our guide was great. Very knowledgeable and took good care of us. Lunch was at a hotel - it was ok. Having it a taverna would have been preferable but it was raining and we were glad to have not been dropped off in town to find our own lunch.
Disappointed
miren_s, Jun 2022
The tour guide did her best with a very large group. She was very knowledgeable, but could not keep up with all the people in our group at a very crowded place. WE signed up for a small group tour, which this definitely was not!. I would never have booked this type of tour. We were the last group to be picked up and so had the worst seats on a long bus trip which definitely detracted from the experience. But the tour was large and the place crowded, so we missed out on a lot of the guides information. Make sure you get what you signed up for!!!

It was nice but the tour guide was not
Christine_R, Jun 2022
The most memorable part of my trip were the beautiful views. Unfortunately our first tour guide was making some outdated sexist jokes the whole time, most of them including his wife. It made the whole tour not that enjoyable.

Ripped off and wasn’t given refund. Viator timed out and by the time I could confirm cancellation the operator would not process a refund.
Delightful Delphi
Abigail_T, Jun 2022
Fabulous site with so much history. Fabulous to get out of Athena, see the countryside, the stunning mountains and learn about the Delphi site
Amazing experience
HClark_A, Jun 2022
The whole experience of visiting Delphi. Our tour guide was outstanding. Her knowledge level was above a PhD. I would highly recommend to everyone.
Unorganized
Kimmy, May 2022
The site and the museum were beautiful and worth seeing. I would recommend renting a car and doing this site apart from an organized tour. This would give one the freedom to explore and spend time where you want. I don’t recommend this tour. There were many parts of the tour that weren’t great. The tour had too many people in it. The wifi on the bus was not working. In the overview on Viator it was mentioned we would be stopping in two towns on the way back. We stopped in the a side road tourist spot in Leviadia for a quick toilet and coffee break on the way to Delphi. The guide was not engaging and it felt like she was reading a script from memory. She didn’t smile or cracks joke or ask anyone where they were from. When we got to the site every other tour and school trip arrived at the same time. There was only one ticket scanner working and we were all stuffed together in very close proximity waiting to scan our tickets. I paid for the lunch. It was horrible. The cheese and spinach pie was over cooked. Second course was a Greek salad which was ok. The main course was chicken filet with potatoes and grilled vegetables. I couldn’t eat the chicken. It was tough and dry and you could hardly cut the meat. We were promised a stop in the town of Arachova on the way back. Our stop was timed when 90% of the good shops were closed. It was as though the bus company Chatours makes a deal with one shop owner to park in front of his shop. This was a disappointment as the town is absolutely beautiful and it would have been lovely to be able to shop in all the shops and be able to purchase something unique. Not much more to say except it was a disappointment
