Full description

After meeting your licensed tour guide, hop on board an air-conditioned vehicle and depart for Delphi Archaeological Site. Find yourself being immersed in the myths and monuments of Ancient Greece as you drive through Boeotia, hearing tales about King Oedipus, God Apollo, and more. Your first stop is Kryas Springs, a picturesque valley in the city of Levadia. Walking routes along the banks, streams, limestone formations as well as stone and wooden bridges create the perfect scenery for a short stroll. The main stop of the tour is the Delphi Archaeological Site. Upon arrival, marvel at some of the most important and unique archaeological monuments, such as the Athenian Stoa, the Treasury of the Athenians, the Polygonal Wall, and the Temple of Apollo.

Visit the Archaeological Museum of Delphi, which hosts globally known artifacts like the Naxian Sphinx, the frieze of the Treasury of the Sifnians, the bronze Charioteer of Delphi, and the statue of Antinoos.

Make a final stop in the village of Arachova. Here, get time for lunch in one of the many traditional restaurants of the village (costs not included). Take a walk around the villages' narrow alleys, where you can admire hand-woven carpets and buy local delicacies such as Formaela cheese.

In the late afternoon, get back on the vehicle and return to Athens.

Our guide Kimon and driver were great. Quite a long day most of it in the hot sun. Our only gripe is that we specifically booked and paid more for a 'small group' which was supposed to be not more than 15 people. It turned out to be many more than that. So I wouldn't bother paying for the 'small groups'.

We were very satisfied with the whole process. Our driver was very nice and accommodating. He provided us with information on the drive to Delphi and also let us get off at two places to visit them. In Delphi he reserved a table for us in a restaurant, where we went to eat after our tour. The restaurant was very good. Our tour guide confidently guided us through the museum and the excavation site in German. We were all excited.

Our trip to Delphi was fantastic! Effi, our guide, picked us up at our hotel, and we headed out. On our journey to Delphi, she talked about the ancient site that we were about to see. Effi was very knowledgeable. We walked thru the grounds, then the museum, narrating the significant features along the way. Before heading back, we had a terrific lunch in the village of Delphi.
