    Very nice trip for me , but not too much time to visit place , and too much time in the bus , you need at least 7 or 8 hours per day in the bus in order to visit all the places .. Overall very good , the guide was very nice , not sure it was a 4 stars hotel but it was good .

    My husband and I booked this tour after considering many different options on how to visit Delphi. I had previously visited Delphi years ago but this was my husband’s first visit. Delphi is a major archaeological site and we felt a day trip would not provide adequate time to fully appreciate it. The Viator description of the tour is misleading, mainly because it leaves out details of the trip itinerary. The 2-day trip visitors are herded through the site and museum tour at the same frenetic pace as the day trippers and once you exit the site and museum with your group (as you must because the bus with your overnight luggage awaits to take you to your hotel) so the day trippers can eat a buffet lunch there (which is not included for the 2-day trip visitors) you cannot return to the site or museum without purchasing another ticket (at a cost of 12€ per ticket). The trip doesn’t depart from Athens until 8:45 am and the Viator description that the tour includes “exploring the mountain towns of Levadia and Arachova” are actually rest room breaks for 30 minutes at a truck stop outside Levadia and 15 minutes at Arachova. The tour doesn’t arrive to the site until noon at the height of the heat of the day and crowds. You only actually get about 2 hours total at the site and museum with the tour.

    It was definitely worthwhile to take a two day trip in Delphi. The accompdation provided at the Amalia Hotel was excellent—the dinner and breakfast that was included in the plan were brilliant and the hotel had a swimming pool, which was open from morning till 8pm. The accompdation provided didn’t feel overpriced at all. Athena Pronea that I visited in the morning is open to public for those of you who want to visit this site. The tickets for the Delphi archaeological museum and the Temple of Apollo cost altogether 12Euros. The town of Delphi is fairly small that I was able to get around on foot to all the sites and the town.

    This trip was made by mistake because I want the 2nd day to be in Meteora. However, it was a blessing as we were able to get around the village of Delphi which was beautiful. Hotel Amalia where we stayed was beautiful, more like a 4star hotel.

    Loved the trip to Delphi. The tour guide was well informed. it was good to have the second day on our own. Drank from the sacred spring and walked down to Athena's temple. Only one drawback . . our tour guide made ongoing generalizations and sexist comments about women which I thought were inappropriate. The one black mark in an otherwise good trip.

    We booked the two day trip but travelled with a party doing a one day trip. The coach was extremely comfortable and the guide was both knowledgeable and amusing. Arriving at the site after a journey of some two and a half hours, we were taken first to the museum. It was bedlam in there with several tours arriving at the same time. It was often difficult to hear the guide's expert information for the noise of other groups. She sped us efficiently through the museum and then gave us a whirlwind tour of the site. There was not much more than two and a quarter hours allowed for the whole visit before being whisked to the hotel for lunch for all of those on a day trip. Then they returned to Athens. Had I been on the day trip I would have been very annoyed as proper time was not allowed to see the sights. However, as I had been to Delphi before, I knew that more time would be needed. The rest of the afternoon was spent seeing the sights not visited in the morning, especially the sanctuary of Athens one of the most photographed ruins in Delphi, but missed by those on a day trip. Then back to the Amalia Hotel which was very comfortable with spectacular views. The seventies design of the hotel is charming because of the inspired use of natural materials, mostly stone and wood, though it makes for a babble of voices in the dining room with no fabric to deaden the sound. Dinner and breakfast included were from the buffet and more than adequate.
    The two day option makes it possible to return again to the site for the morning. We got there early before the rush and before the heat of the day. Then after lunch we were picked up by the following day tour and driven back to Athens.
    If I had been on the one day tour, I would award it two stars, but as a two day outing it thoroughly deserves five.
