What people are saying about Delphi, Greece

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Delphi on this tour. The bus was punctual and comfortable and the gentleman (we cannot remember the name, unfortunately) who assisted us was terrific. He has made a friend for life with our daughter, who now wants to visit Casablanca! We were sent all of the information prior to the trip by Anastasia, which was helpful and great. The VR aspect was a great touch, as you aren't always able to read the boards and they were very informative and easy to use. The stop off in Arachova was great, also. What a lovely village on the mountainside. Delphi and Arachova were terrific. The area of Mount Parnassus was breathtaking and we would highly recommend this tour.

Great trip. We were given an iPad/tablet to use for the self guided tour around the archaeological site. We had 2 hours here which was enough time for me. The guide did not mention the Pronaia Temple which is not in the main site but 15 minute walk away. I had researched the area so already knew about it and was able to visit. The hike up to the stadium is not worth it in my option, much better to walk to the Pronaia Temple. We had 1.5 hours in a little town for lunch. This was nice but most of the town was closed, unsure why, possibly low season.

The weather was really nice and not too hot so we really enjoyed the trip. We saw amazing views and places and the Delphi experience was overall fantastic. Our tour guide Kimono was very experienced and knowledgeable.

George, our driver and the 2 gentlemen assisting him were most kind and helpful. They accomodated our needs with a smile.

Had a really great time! The museum was really up-to-date and the tour guide Mari was informative and really easy going.
