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.

Fantastic tour of Delphi! We met at the company office, about a 15 min walk from our Airbnb. Mariana our guide was amazing and made the day! It was hot and there were many steps- bring a hat and plenty of water. Some parts felt rushed but that is part of a larger tour and we didn’t mind the schedule. Delphi was absolutely beautiful and would definitely recommend this tour. Good value and easiest way to see in one day for us. We purchased our own lunch at restaurant and it worked out fine

Loved the trip. Little apprehensive with the 3 hour journey there and back but actually the journey was very smooth, comfortable coach and lovely scenery on the way. Once in Delphi, it was an amazing place, was meant to meet at the museum but we spent longer at the main site so late there but still enough time to see the museum. We didn’t opt for lunch, thought we would see on the day. Menu was overpriced compared to Athens and nowhere else to eat as it was a restaurant on its own. We did also manage a stop at Athena Pronaia which wasn’t promised and I would have been disappointed as that’s why I chose the tour. So all in all it was a worthwhile trip.

This trip was amazing. Much due to our wonderful guide Marianna. She is so knowledgeable and takes such good care of you during the whole trip. Marianna weaves a story from the beginning to the end of the trip. She mesmerizes the group, so that everyone wants more. I have never been on a group tour such as this, where the whole group is totally quiet when the guide speaks. Everyone listened intently the whole time. My only regret is that my head was not in the right place as we left the bus, and I had no cash. Mariann and our driver Christos was worth every penny and more.. a LARGE tip should have been theirs from me. Next time guys… because I will be back for more….
