Know More about this tour

From your Hotel or cruise ship terminal head north out of Athens as your informative driver takes you through relaxing countryside for several hours before arriving at the archaeological site.

The history of Delphi stretches back in time to at least 1500 BC, before the classical Greek period. Famed throughout the ancient world, Delphi was acknowledged to be the center of the earth by Zeus but was also known because of its oracle. The eternal flame burned in the Temple of apollo during the Pythian Games, a forerunner of the modern Olympics, and the city's role extended past Ancient Greece when Roman emperors protected the site and continued to send delegations to seek the oracle's advice.

During your visit to Delphi, see the physical structures associated with this incredibly long history, and learn about their rich mythology. You will also have plenty of time to visit the impressive museum to see its many artifacts from as far back as the 15th century BC. Highlight include the Naxian Sphinx, statue of Antinoos, and the bronze sculpture of a charioteer.

Next we continue your tour to the pretty mountain village of Arachova, perched at 3,117 feet (950 meters) on the south slopes of Mt. Parnassus. You'll have time for lunch or a snack with many choices available (own expense), and wander the streets, visiting some of the many craft shops & enjoy the scenic views before the return trip to Athens.

After lunch continue to the walled monastery of St. Lucas. A world Heritage site, explore its notable Byzantine architecture, enjoy its tranquil location & view it wonderful preserved artwork.

For those wanting a greater depth of information & guiding inside the sites, the option of having an expert Private Licensed guide to accompany you inside the site & museum of Delphi and/or the monastery is available on request. Private guiding time for Delphi would be 70 Euro for the site alone & 120 Euro for the site + Museum.

    We have used warm penguin before and have never been disappointed, this tour was no exception. The guide was prompt, informative, well educated and friendly. The tour was amazing including the lunch and view. We would highly recommend.

    It was a dream tour through the history - from Athens to Arachova near the famous mount Parnassos, then Delfi and its temples and finally Osios Loukas monastery. The top of the day was a lunch in Delfi with a breathtaking view to the mountains and excellent local food. Our driver Yiannis told us a lot of stories about history of Greece and about mythology. What a wonderful day!

    From the moment our driver, Mario, picked us up at our hotel in the morning until he returned us safely in the evening, we were comfortable, informed and entertained. We learned as much from Mario as we did from the sites on the tour ... about Greek culture, history, education, economics, family traditions and more. My only regret is that we didn’t get a photo of Mario, who was expecting the birth of his first child this winter. We wish him well! A wonderful day. Highly recommend.

    I cant spell or pronounce our Greek drivers’ name, but he said it is “Will or William” in English. He was wonderful!! We couldn’t have asked for a more professional or courteous expert....thankful for the experience we were able to share with our friends! Communication was easy, request were obliged and we never felt rushed. Lunch was incredible. This was more than a five star experience. Thanks for exceeding our expectations!

    Our party of seven had two Fabulous days with Demetrius! He was very polite, courteous, professional, Very knowledgeable regarding history, Fun to be with, and extremely accommodating in every way! We had two beautiful lunches at some of his favorites and they were phenomenal! He is definitely an asset to the company, genuine and absolutely deserves a huge raise!

    We did this trip on 18 Aug (2 adults and 3 teens). Pickup was punctual. Nice clean air conditioned van. Janos our driver was very knowledgeable and informative. He took us through most of Greek history during the journey - which took just under 2 hours. First stop was the Temple of Athena, then we had a guide to take us round the Delphi Museum then the site itself. The guide was very informative re architecture, Greek and roman periods. After the visit we had lunch in an excellent restaurant overlooking part of the Gulf of Corinth Some tips 1) Bring your passport (to get in for free in student or < 18) 2) Wear sensible shoes - Delphi stones can be slippy Overall an excellent trip - a little bit expensive - but more than worth it

    we had a wonderful adventure with our guide Vissilis aka "Bill" - the entire day what memories we made and the history we learned. The visit to the Monastary was inspiring. The Delphi - just like the magazine cover of National Geographic; so much to see and that's just it, you get to see and experience it all! The place we stopped for lunch had incredible food and the most breathtaking view. Book "Bill" - the time you spend with him and his expansive knowledge of his Greece is priceless

    If you are looking to get out of Athens for a day-trip to Delphi and some beautiful mountain scenery, this trip is perfect. Notis, our driver and guide, was wonderful. He was warm, friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable about the area, the mythology, history, and culture surrounding the sites. We began at the Hosios Loukas Monastery, which was stunningly beautiful, then made our way to the picturesque mountainside town of Arachova for lunch. Views were amazing and food was equally good. Finally, we did a walking tour of Delphi, the museum and archeological site. This requires us to leave Notis and join another licensed guide for the site. She was just Ok, but the Delphi museum and site were a must-see. Perfect for a customizable private tour experience.
