What people are saying about Temple of Apollo, Delphi

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.

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!

We enjoyed our trip to Delphi and Arachova a lot. The guide Demi is a very professional and kind person. We got to know many interesting facts and stories. Thank you. Best regards, Gaby and Lucy from Slovakia

I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the itinerary was well timed. The bus was comfortable and the restaurant was accommodating to dietary restrictions.

The drive was relaxing, the guide knowledgeable, the food excellent and the temple and museum were fun.
