Guide was fantastic. If you’re going to go all the way from Athens to Delphi on a bus, pay a little extra and have a great guide tell you history and myth the whole way, and then talk you through the site while you’re there. This is that great guide - she was awesome.

Seeing Delphi was absolutely amazing. We loved walking around the temples and we enjoyed all of the information that we got from our guide. She started telling Greek mythological stories and much more on the bus already, which helped break up the monotony of the bus ride. Unfortunately, we went in a big tour bus with a giant group. Even though we were all wearing masks, I felt quite uncomfortable travelling with such a big group. We also sat all together in one room for lunch, without the masks so we could eat. I never felt completely safe during this tour... Also, understanding the tour guide was more difficult with such a big group. The company uses a system of headphones that just doesn't work (we did a second tour with them and it didn't work on either tour, there is too much static noise to understand anything). That means that we all had to get very close to our guide to understand her, which, once again, made me feel quite uncomfortable.

We had an incredible day out at Delphi. It was an early start and it was so worth it! Our Keytours guide, Marianne was incredible. She brought the ancient structures to life by providing charismatic and energetic historical insights. The sight itself is remarkable. Definitely recommended, and if possible use KeyTours! I hope you are as lucky as we were to get Marianne.
