Our tour guide Averkios was extremely knowledgeable and one of the best guides we have ever come across. He used to work as an archaeologist at Delphi. Hence, his explanations and stories were very detailed and he was very enthusiastic talking about the site. The drive to and from Delphi was around 2.5 hrs each way. However, we did not feel that the journey was that long as we had Averkios providing us with information about Athens, Delphi and Greece in general, as well as Greek mythology for most of the drive. We also got the opportunity to visit Arachova, a village close to Delphi. There was ample time for us to grab lunch and everything was communicated clearly.

Joy's! Was our guide for the trip to Delphi and she was outstanding as a guide and as a facilitator for the day. We had a very rainy day in Athens and our bus had to be exchanged which meant a detour and delayed arrival at Delphi. Joy and our driver worked out the details of the day to smooth out the wrinkles caused by the delay. As a guide Joy is beyond excellent. Her English skills are better than top notch and her knowledge of archeology and Greek mythology made a great combo. We were well educated in a most entertaining way. The bus ride back to Athens in the rain was long but Joy entertained us with stories and good humor.

We enjoyed this tour as Delphi is a magnificent place, it helped when there is a tour guide to explain the ancient history and provide information on all the ruins. From a value perspective, it worth every dime. However, we weren't quite please with the tour guide though, both my husband and I fell that guiding that tour was the last thing she liked to do. She is knowledgeable, courtesy but really didn't want to be on our bus. We visited in Oct 2019 instead of July, there is something wrong with the tool that it wouldn't provide an option for Oct.

A crucial sight to visit in Greece and worth spending the whole day. Our guide was excellent, everything was on time, we were picked up at our hotel and dropped off at the end of the trip. Very informative presentation by the guide who did a great job of keeping track of people in different categories on the tour (lunch,no lunch, etc.). I have never had a bad experience with Viator.

We had plenty of time off the bus and the food if you choose the lunch is very good. All Greek food such as spinach pie, baklava and salad.

This is a wonderful one day experience to visit Delphi and learn about mythology as well as see many ancient ruins dating back to the BC Era! Effie our guide was very interesting and knowledgeable regarding mythology and archeology. She made this interesting as well as entertaining! We also visited the Delphi museum... lunch is included if you wish but we chose lunch on our own for a more casual menu and enjoyed that... no problem finding a restaurant! Highly recommend this day tour!!!

Awesome tour guide and awesome tour. It was so interesting and I really enjoyed it.. a little extra time at the mesueum would have been good for future reference but it was still a wonderful day

A full day tour to the Temple of Apollo. Our tour guide was Joy and she was fabulous. Lots of interesting stories told along the way. Free time at the temple for photos and walk to the top. We didn’t do the lunch and enjoyed a stroll through Delphi and a coffee. Magnificent views. Well worth it.

We took this trip knowing that there will be a long drive, but all that I can say that it was worthy. The bus was extremely comfortable, the coffee break on the road came on time, and the scenery was the best part of the road trip. It was a hot day at arrival to Delphi. The tour has a lot of walking and climbing, so it is important to know that not everybody can handle the hiking part, however the ruins have a wonderful story and history. We didn't take the lunch package thinking to avoid a probable boring Hotel lunch, se we were dropped in Delphi town and looked for one of the authentic restaurants and had the most delicious lunch we had in the whole of Greece. We were picked up later by the bus heading back to Athens. overall, it was a great trip and we had a wonderful day to remember. Definitely recommended.

Easy booking process. Experienced guide and driver. Highly recommend this if you have a spare day in Athens.

The tour bus was new, clean, and comfortable. Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared with us throughout the day, including on our travel to Delphi, explaining what we were going to see. The site itself is fulfilling to visit. The climb to the stadium is worth it for the additional perspective of ancient site and valley below. Lunch was very good and the service was also.

Enjoyed the ride through the northern towns of Delphi. Was unaware there was a ski resort. It was wonderful to see and learn about the archeological site and respective museums.

Absolutely amazing trip! Thanks to Averkios, our wonderful guide and Iorgos, the driver, we were able to discover Delphi, a hidden treasure in the heart of Greece. We very much enjoyed it and we recommend it to anyone interested in Greek history!

The day trip is wonderful. The bus was very comfortable and luxurious, The drive is very scenic and beautiful. We took the 'lunch option' for extra $20. The lunch was served in a restaurant in a high end hotel, so the food was wonderful, with multiple courses. However, you can get very good food in the town where the the bus stops for the lunch break for probably no more than $8-10. The Tavernas are wonderful and most have an amazing view of the beautiful mountains.
