Full description

Embark on an unforgettable guided day trip from Athens to Delphi, the navel of the ancient Greek world. Visit the Delphi Archeological Site and museum and see the Temple of Apollo, the Sanctuary of Athena Pronaia, and more. Later, get free time to explore a scenic village.

The morning of your trip, meet your licensed tour guide and depart in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. The drive takes about 2.5 hours going each way, so sit back and enjoy the passing scenery as you pass through the Boeotia plains.

As you travel, begin to immerse yourself in Ancient Greece as your guide tells tales about ancient Greek mythology, King Oedipus, God Apollo, and more.

Your first stop will be at Kryas Livadeia Springs, a picturesque valley near the city of Levadia. Streams, limestone formations, stone and wooden bridges, and walking routes along the banks create the perfect scenery for a photo walk.

During a guided tour through the archaeological site, see some of the most important and unique archaeological monuments, such as the Temple of Apollo and its oracle, the Athenian Stoa, the Polygonal Wall.

Later, you can visit the Archaeological Museum of Delphi (entry fees paid on site), which hosts globally known pieces of art like the Sphinx of Naxos, the Statue of Antinous, the Siphnian Treasury, and the Charioteer of Delphi.

After the visit to Delphi, hop back on the bus to the multicolored village of Arachova, built on the mountainside. Get free time to arrange for lunch on your own at a traditional taverna (costs not included).

Take time to go on a stroll around the village’s narrow alleys, enter some artisanal shops for local delicacies, and admire the local hand-woven carpets. In the late afternoon, depart for your return to Athens, on another 2.5-hour drive.

In the past year I have been on excellent tours in Albania and Jordan. I keep waiting for a disappointing one but it hasn’t happened yet. Dionisis may be one of the most widely knowledgeable of all my guides so far. Extensive historical, architectural, and mythology stories intertwined to create a mesmerizing educational experience. The food at our lunch stop was sublime and the general conversation with Dionisis and driver, Kennedy, was both entertaining and erudite. True citizens of the world. Next time I come I will ask the company and Dionisis to put together a personal tour of the less visited places just for additional fun.

The Delphi Day Trip with tag Athens was worth every penny. The coach was well air-conditioned and very comfortable, and the view was truly spectacular. Our tour guide took the time to show us around all the monuments and in the archaeological museum we took a glimpse of the beautiful artifacts like the statue of Antinoos. Our tour ended in a beautiful village where we enjoyed a delicious traditional lunch in a very beautiful taverna and cried in laughter while trying to pronounce Greek food! We arrived back at the hotel late in the afternoon and immediately fell asleep! What a day!

Delphi is a must if you visiting Greece and I booked this tour to enjoy the benefits of having a licensed your guide in a small group. I searched a lot and I made a great choice considering many Delphi tour they offered without a tour guide but just the driver. So careful and boom the right tour for you.
