Know More about this tour

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).

  • Please don't waste your time./ While the views are nice, this trip was an absolute waste of time. Most of our time was spent on the bus travelling. Delphi was crowded with hoards of students on class trips. The lunch was okay. Overall, it definitely was not worth the money.

  • Very enjoyable

  • Evie was a great guide - she was fun and offered a lot of information to us. Very knowledgeable!

  • This was a great tour with a knowledgeable and friendly guide. It's a long day but worth it. Delphi is spectacular. The optional lunch was very good and the restaurant had a beautiful outlook over the valley. The driver was very skilled and careful. I can't recommend this tour highly enough. Just do it!

  • I really wanted to like this tour, but just couldn't. I booked this tour since my children are interested in greek mythology and thought this would be a great tie in with our current lessons. However, there are a few things to consider when booking this tour. The tour has complimentary hotel pickup, so we were picked up 1 hour before the tour started. We then drove all across the city picking up other participants to end up at the tour start point about 3 blocks from our hotel. Had I known this I would have let the kids sleep another hour and walked to the tour start point. Next, the majority of the day is spent on the bus than at the site. We spent an hour driving around the city picking up people, then had a 2 hour ride to the site. We had 60 to 90 minutes at the Temple of Apollo. The site is gorgeous, but is very rough terrain. The paths are rock and gravel with many uneven stairs. The guide was good, but spoke fast and was very factual. The information presented was good for adults, but really not of much interest to the kids. We then walked to the museum and only had 30 minutes inside before being picked up by the bus to get to lunch. The lunch was mediocre and really didn't have many choices for kids. Then we boarded the bus again for 2 hour ride back to Athens and drove around dropping everyone off. I would not book this tour again.

  • Loved this trip, but our tour guide was not that good sadly.

  • Great tour and guide. Make sure u have a big breakfast as lunch was at 3:30. A few minutes to visit the museum gift shop would have been nice.

  • The tour was well organized, the bus was comfortable, and the guide was very knowledgeable but I felt very rushed when at actually at the Delphi site.The guide walked us through the first part of the site and then left us on our own to either continue walking up to the top or go to the museum. I walked all the way up to the stadium and when I returned to the bottom, I was only able to spend 5 minutes in the museum. I skipped lunch on the tour and I wish I had been given the option to spend longer on the site rather than walking around the town for an hour.

  • Very informative, time allowed at the site was reasonable.

  • Great Tour! Amazing sights and tour guide very knowledgeable!
