Full description

Explore the most famous sights of ancient Greece on this guided day trip to magical Delphi. Spend an entire day learning about the oracle and discovering ancient ruins including the amphitheater and the Temple of Apollo.

Your tour departs from Athens, from where you will travel to Delphi, located on the spur of Mount Parnassus, making a short rest stop outside the town of Levadia. Arrive in Delphi, and visit the famous theater, where you will enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, and get an insight into the world of the Ancient Greeks. Visit the Temple of Apollo, the center of Ancient Greece, and best-known for its famous oracle. Tour the Museum of Delphi, home to a unique bronze Charioteer, the Naxian Sphinx, and the Statue of Antinoos, providing an amazing insight into Ancient Greek culture and history.

After a lunch break, visit Athena Pronaia Sanctuary (depending on the local authority's permission), the most photographed spot in Delphi.

Then, head back to Athens via the beautiful mountain village of Arachova, situated on the hills of the Parnassus Mountains, where the tour will stop for a short photo opportunity.

The activity was very organized! We were picked up from our hotel and dropped off. Our tour guide Costas was fantastic! He studied archeology and was very knowledgeable. We did not purchase the optional lunch package but when you are with the group you are able to eat lunch at the same location à la carte. This is a definite must do!

Tour guide and driver was good, but the tour company only told us one day before that they could not pick us up and asked that my family of 5 walk to their office to join the tour, so that was disappointing, as by then we could not have cancelled the tour.

Marianna is a top guide! She has a lot of knowledge and love for antiquity and art. “Art lasts forever”. The restaurant was cozy and we had a good meal. Bus was also very comfortable. Definitely recommended if you want to get out of the city for a while! Thank you
