Your guided half-day tour of Athens combines the citys historic and modern sights, from central Omonia Square to the changing of the guard in Constitution Square. After taking a drive with your guide past the Panathenian Stadium, site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, travel into the past at Athens crowning beauty, the Acropolis.

Tour the Parthenon, Athena Nike temple and beautiful Porch of the Maidens, and learn more about The acropolis and its ruins at the new Acropolis museum.

Delphi Day Trip (Day 1 or Day 2 your choice):

More temples await at the archaeological site of Delphi, dedicated to the worship of Apollo and site of the legendary Delphic oracle in classical times.

Leaving Levadia, continue to the winter-time ski resort town of Arachova on the slopes of Mt Parnassus. While taking a stroll around Arachova, note the traditionally hand-woven flokati rugs for sale in the towns shops.

    I am very happy that I decided to travel to Greece. Well worth it! !!Everything like in the movie. Beautyful,historical.

    I really enjoyed the trip to Delphi. Luckily, we were on time (I was a bit anxious due to previous comments). It it true that a lot of the time is'wasted' in traveling, but the place is totally worth it. Our guide was also very nice and explained a lot. Very happy to have done the day trip together with the Athens/Acropolis tour :)

    If you're in Athens on a tight schedule, take this tour. You'll see everything you need to see and be content. Our favorite tour guides were from this tour group, educated and informative. I love the stories one told and the greek gods. Don't expect this to be an intimate group though.

    This tour was wonderful in a number of ways, most significantly as I was able to book it the night before with the help of Viator customer support and access to the tour operator after another company had cancelled my Delphi Day Tour. Delphi was one of my primary destinations for this trip and I am really grateful to the operator of CHAT Tours for accommodating me for the comfortable 2 day bus tour and also for coordinating a last minute memorable pilgrimage and private tour opportunity with a driver to the Lion of Chaeronea.

    The tour each day was about 50 people which was way too large. The guides did not use audio devices so it was hard to hear them and everyone either jostled close to the guide trying to hear, or lost interest and wandered away. The bus each day was completely full, and the seats so close together it was painful, worse than Economy Class on a cheap airline. And finally, on the Delphi trip, we were taken for lunch to the Hotel Amalia, and it was perhaps the most disgusting meal I have ever had. The hostess was a Gorgon who demanded we sit where she arbitrarily placed us without reference to our friends and traveling companions. We were placed at a table for 6, with a Japanese couple and an Italian couple, none of whom spoke English well, but all of whom wanted to practice on us. Every table around us was served first, and in some cases, were getting seconds, before we were served. Every time the Gorgon passed behind me with her tray I got her buttocks against my neck. The food was appalling. Chicken in congealed grease, eggplant swimming in oil, and roasted potatoes that were stone cold. We were never offered drinks other than water, though all other tables were. It was truly awful, and I cannot imagine why you would use this restaurant.

    Trips via bus that are longer than two hours require buses with bathrooms onboard or more frequent pit spots. It wasnt fun to have the guide announce over the intercom to all other passengers that we were making an emergency bathroom stop for a single passenger. Another step in the right direction would be improvements on the wi-if service.
