We had a great trip to Delphi, both Alex (driver) and George (tour guide) are awesome. Alex started with detailed introduction of what we will be experiencing during the start of the trip and George provided the history behind the archeological site and artefacts. Everything was awesome minus the rainy weather. Highly recommend this day trip.

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.

Though it’s a long journey, it’s definitely worth it if you have time. Our guide was excellent and took very good care of us even thought we were a large group. The place is breathtaking!

Very nice tour! The guide was very good, gave us a lot of information.

this was an amazing experience and worth every penny
