    I don’t used to book tours but this tour was amazing. The guide Demetria is well prepared, she’s an archeologist with studies in Ancient Greek history and made the tour even more interesting. I felt in love with that history. The tour is intimate. The transportation extremely comfortable and the road simply fascinating; The weather fresh and the rain made it a dream. At the beginning I was like, it’s expensive but trust me, it worth every single penny.

    Anastasia was really kind and helpful to all the participants. I would have loved some more time in the museum.

    Great trip to Delphi, which is such a magical place. The tour is well planned and the guide, Maria, was very knowledgeable. The restaurant we stopped for lunch was great too. Highly recommended. When we realised we had left an item on the bus I emailed KEYTOURS and they tracked it down quickly and were super helpful

    Lovely trip, Mariana was very knowledgeable and everything you hope for in a tour guide. The Key Tours Company is organized and very responsive via email. Highly recommend everyone check it out. For general knowledge, there is only one restaurant available for lunch if you choose to take the tour without lunch provided.

    Fabulous day trip with a very knowledgeable guide and it was well organised. It was great value and I would thoroughly recommend the sights and scenery were amazing!

    The bus left on time,our guide was very knowledgeable. Lunch in a hotel was fabulous. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes as access to some sites are uneven with very high steps and slippery gravel.The scenery in Delphi is as impressive as the monuments. A must do experience whilst in Greece

    Tour guide Mariana was most excellent!!! Had a car rented but changed my mind and took this tour instead. I am so glad I did. So much more relaxing not driving with huge amt of traffic returning to Athens Sunday afternoon on a holiday weekend.

    Learning the history of the area/temples and mythology in this ancient land was just what we expected. Bus was comfortable and the stops were well timed. I believe Joseph was our guide’s name and he gave us the history of the land we were driving thru and all of the mythological history. As most tours in Greece we encountered numerous steps to get to the temples, but being in our 70’s with artificial joints had no problems. Weather was perfect. BTW we are looking for Kalamata olive oil when we get back to the states.

    Great trip. Lots of climbing up steps and paths without hand rails. Pace was fast for elderly. Beautiful location
