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.

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.

100% worth it for any visit to Athens! We loved getting out of the city and seeing another part of the country. Mariza is a great tour guide - so knowledgeable and passionate. It made all the difference having a tour guide able to come in with us. Drive was easy, appreciated the stops along the way. Lunch and our time in Arachova were very nice too. The site in Delphi has some challenging terrain, but Mariza made sure we found the shady spots :) Would do this again!

I had an appointment at the agency at 8:15. This one is next to the “acropolis” metro station. The guide picked us up to take us to the Mercedes van. The driver was friendly. He drove well. The van was very comfortable especially since there were 12 of us, so a small group. We made a stop for the toilets and a snack afterwards we went directly to the Sanctuary of Delphi. Throughout the journey Marissa told us about the mythology and history of her country. The visit was magical! I recommend it 100%, however you have to be in good shape because the sanctuary is very steep. You have to come with sneakers, a hat and water. The stop at arachnova has no interest. It is added to the excursion when it is useless. I will have more time at the shrine instead of visiting another nearby ancient place. The guide was really great. She is invested in what she says. You should take it on all excursions.

Simon was a very attentive and knowledgeable guide. He showed us around all the main sites in Delphi (including the Temple of Athena Pronaia on the way back) and gave us some free time at the end to explore the site ourselves. His tour of the museum was particularly good! Arachova was also beautiful and we were very happy this was added on to the trip. Would highly recommend!
