What You Can Expect

Delphi Day Trip from Athens

Delphi, Greece

Ancient Greece is the civilization that existed roughly between the 8th century BC and 600 AD, and Delphi was said to represent the center of it. Reputedly built on the spot where Zeus’ eagles collided when they were released from opposite ends of the earth, the ancient town is littered with intriguing monuments from this fascinating period of history.

After meeting your guide in Athens, hear tales about the ancient Greeks and their lives in Delphi while traveling to the town by air-conditioned coach. Pass through the towns of Levadia and Arachova – both famous for their production of brightly colored carpets – and arrive in Delphi around midday.

First stop is a tour of the Delphi archeological site – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and easily one of the most important digs in Europe. As you walk around the evocative ruins with your guide, see famous monuments like the Temple of Apollo.

Head inside Delphi Archeological Museum and explore this veritable treasure trove at leisure. Home to countless artifacts and intriguing relics, the museum consists of 15 rooms arranged in chronological order from 15th century BC to 4th century AD. Be sure to check out the bronze Charioteer of Delphi and the Sphinx of Naxos.

After eating lunch at a Delphi hotel (own expense), you will return to Athens, stopping in Arachova on the way to stretch your legs or grab a coffee (own expense).

This was a good tour with pick up at our hotel. Our tour guide, Joy, was very knowledgeable and friendly. The bus was comfortable and made one stop each way for refreshments/shopping/bathrooms. Delphi was very hot so bring water. The museum was air conditioned and full of interesting artifacts. We stopped in the ski village on the way home where you could walk around and shop or eat quickly. We opted for the lunch and it was very good with plenty of food. Would recommend this tour although it was an all day adventure.

The tour and tour guide (Joy) were awesome! Joy was quite knowledgeable and helpful. She was especially amazing when I fell and badly sprained my ankle, helping me tend to my injury for the rest of the day. Thanks, Joy!

Great tour! Got to see more of Greece than Athens, and Delphi was fascinating. We took the option of lunch on our own, instead of included with the tour, and I'm glad we did. There are many restaurants/cafes in Delphi, and we ended up having one of the best meals of the trip at a small taverna, with a distant view of the sea. The guide was informative, the museum was interesting. Glad I went.
