Delphi is in stunning surroundings & is well worth a visit. However, half the time is spent on the bus. Arachova is a pretty village but you don't need more than 40 minutes there. if you've been to the archeological museum in Athens or the acropolis museum, the museum at Delphi is very similar. you need to be quite fit to get up to the stadium at Delphi, bear that in mind especially if you are an older tourist. If you book this trip, don't expect the guide to give you information about the site at Delphi. He was very jolly and jokey, but he didn't give us any relevant information about the trip. The audio information that we were given on the tablet was difficult to hear. Despite all this, this tour is one of the cheaper ones and is good value for money.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Delphi on this tour. The bus was punctual and comfortable and the gentleman (we cannot remember the name, unfortunately) who assisted us was terrific. He has made a friend for life with our daughter, who now wants to visit Casablanca! We were sent all of the information prior to the trip by Anastasia, which was helpful and great. The VR aspect was a great touch, as you aren't always able to read the boards and they were very informative and easy to use. The stop off in Arachova was great, also. What a lovely village on the mountainside. Delphi and Arachova were terrific. The area of Mount Parnassus was breathtaking and we would highly recommend this tour.

The VR app works well and, although the journey is long, the excursion is 100% worth it, although it is true that during the trip there is no guide, the driver, very from time to time, comments something. Be careful because the entrance to the archaeological site and the museum is included in the price, but if you are under 25 or over 65, that entry is actually free.
