  • Eustis was a wonderful tour guide and did a great job of keeping a wide ranging group engaged. My three kids were the youngest of the tourists on this tour, and really loved his stories. I was impressed with his ability to manage the group. The lunch was delicious and worth the add-on though next time I might order a la carte for the children. Thank you for a wonderful tour.

  • Perfect little trip. Delphi is gorgeous and if you have enough time you may get to stop and stroll around the little mountain town on your way back. It's a fun trip and very informative. We loved the whole thing.

  • Great tour! We travelled on 18th of February and had an excellent guide who made the journey to and back from Delphi a pleasant experience. The journey didn't seem too long at all maybe Apollo graced us with good traffic!. While driving, the views were amazing, seeing Mt. Parnassus was very impressive. I especially appreciated that the tour guide and the driver kindly offered to drop off those who didn't want the included lunch in a nearby village, where we got to explore on our own. In retrospect, I wish we'd used this time to explore Tholos of Delphi which is nearby enough and not included in the tour - but one of the most photographed sights in Delphi. A stop over for Mt. Parnassus viewpoint/pictures would also have been a good addition instead of multiple restroom breaks. But all in all a very good tour, I was positively surprised and definitely recommend to all!

  • A really nice way to not only see a special historic place with beautiful artifacts, but also a nice way to see a little part of Greece out of Athens. The mountains surrounding Delphi are themselves a beautiful sight to see. Our guide had nice visual aides to show how Delphi looked when people lived there. And she had excellent stories of Greek mythology. The included lunch was wonderful. You won't leave hungry.

  • Unbelievably beautiful!

  • This was a great day trip from Athens. I took it in the winter January 2018, and we passed through snow capped mountains on our way. Our guide was very informative, and the scenery was breathtakingly beautiful. The Delphi museum and the Charioteer sculpture was a highlight.

  • It was a long day trip from Athens. It was an interesting site and tour. We were given 15-20 minutes to climb to the top for pictures. It seemed rushed. The museum was interesting. Our meal at the hotel was not good. Food was cold, like it had been sitting a long time. Not the best food.

  • This is a long trip to and fro, however., the guide was extremely knowledgeable, made time pass quickly while providing information as well as mythology! Breathtaking views and ruins, guide provided every detail of information required, managed time well.l and so it allowed plenty of time for self exploration. A lovely lunch was provide in a very pleasant and timely environment. She definitely kept things moving and knew everything and good at expressing it!

  • Great trip with plenty of time at Delphi to look around and see the sites.

  • The trip to Delphi is well worth it. The archaeological site is well maintained and easy to see, as well as, has several different items the Stadium, the theatre, temples..etc to view. Our tour guide was very good, maybe too good. His knowledge of Greek history was at a collegiate level, so that might not appeal to everyone..but I liked it. The large bus was clean, but basic. I do wish that we had more time at the local museum.
