An excellent full day trip to Delphi. The driver, Notis, picked us up on time at 9:00 from our hotel and explained the itinerary to us in detail. We managed to visit the ancient sites and the museum in about 3 hours and had a late lunch at Vakhos on the driver's recommendation - great views, good food and reasonably priced. We started back at 4 pm and the return journey took 3 hours. Notis kindly requested and got the trip extended by an hour at no extra cost.

Delphi was really great, and seeing the Greek countryside was amazing as well. Have to be in decent shape to get to the top in heat though. Quite stunning views. My guide (Dimitri) was absolutely fantastic, really could not have been any better. I have taken a lot of these trips all over the world and he was first rate. Thanks Dimitri for a great day!!!

This was the highlight of our trip! Delphi is amazing—stunning scenery and fascinating history. Our driver Nicholas (Nikolaos?) was very friendly and knowledgeable about Athens, Delphi, and Greece in general. The ride was very comfortable and he took us to a great restaurant for lunch that had an incredible view of Delphi. He also stopped in in the charming town of Arachova. I would rate this experience 10 stars if possible!
