    Our driver and guide were excellent. So much more than we expected. Delphi was fascinating, lunch authentic and the visit to Arachova an unexpected treat.

    A long day for sure but well worth it. Our guide and our driver were both awesome. I really enjoyed this trip. Lots of uphill walking...wear comfortable shoes

    This was superb day trip. Straight from our hotel through the hills up to Delphi. Driver was on time and wound his way through Athens morning traffic in no time. We met the guide at Delphi. We had 3 hours at the Delphi Site and Museum. To assimilate all that was there without a guide would be very difficult. We had lunch in the town of Delphi after the tour and then spent a half hour walking through Arachova (a ski town near Delphi) before returning late afternoon to Athens via Aegean Sea national road Total was 10.5 hours. Exhausting but well worth it. We were 6 in all, including a couple who accompanied our family of four - two college students and 2 adults. We received Greek history and mythology lesson at the site and the museum from our Greek guide whose English was good. The driver was also quite knowledgeable but, of course, due to Greek licensing requirements, could not give the tour.

    We had a great time on our Delphi tour. Our guided tour was very informative and nicely paced. It was extremely hot, but we barely noticed because the site was so engaging. Our guide was very kind and happy to drop us somewhere other than our hotel on our way back to Athens.

    The only annoying part of the tour was the usual tour group thing where we were taken to a mediocre restaurant for lunch because the company gets a kickback for it. They also wanted to drop us in a small village for "shopping" but thankfully no one wanted to go, so they skipped it.

    Delphi Highlights was an excellent small group tour. We highly recommend going with a small group. The photo shoots were amazing.

  • 03-Jul-2019

    Our driver on this trip was excellent, helpful and informative. The guide at the site was very good too and knew a lot about the site and its history. The vehicle was comfortable and the driver very safe, I think i would prefer maybe an hour or so in free time in Arachova rather than being taken to the taverna we went to at the end (although the food was good there), then people could choose to eat or look around (or both) as Arachova looked very interesting. I would highly recommend this tour.

    The driver was very polite and helpful. I learned a lot from the tour guide. She was very knowledgeable about the places. The places visited were great.

  • 18-Mar-2019

    I was very lucky in that because some people didn’t turn up, I had a personal tour. However, even if there had been others there, I am sure the experience would have been excellent. Christos the driver and Theodore the guide at Delphi we’re both very personable, had excellent English and were very knowledgable, I couldn’t rate them more highly. Thoroughly recommended

    The drive to Delphi was a great way to see the interior of Greece. Our Guide "Vicki" was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. A great learning experience and beautiful views.
