    Penny was extremely knowledgeable and personable. She made it a point to put what we were seeing into historical context as well as make connections with prior knowledge. We would have missed out on so much if not for taking this tour. So glad we did and would highly recommend experience and guide!!

    My daughter and I spent a wonderful day in Delphi. It really was fantastic to discover the sanctuary in a small group. To start with, a very nice driver picked us up. The mini bus was very comfortable, which is also a plus. Our guide Theo joined us in Delphi. It was a pleasure to discover the site and museum with him. We learnt a lot as he was very interactive. After tge tour, we had lunch in a very good tavern displaying a breathtaking view on the coast. We were back in Athens around 5.30.

We had a really bad experience with GYG in Japan where they failed to show up to day trip and failed to communicate. GYG were good enough to offer us an equivalent day-trip on our next holiday and this a fabulous one. Everything went like clockwork. The site of the archeological ruins and the museum was world class. Great taverna lunch. Communications with Christos, our driver and our guide was very good and that made the trip memorable. Kudos!
