George was a wonderful tour guide who picked us up from about Airbnb rental in the Plaka. He arrived on time with a very nice and clean 14 passenger van. He drove us to Delphi and answered any questions we had about Greece and the countryside. We made one stop at a rest area before arriving at Delphi. We had time to see the area and the museum. He then took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch with great views. We drove back to Athens and had a wonderful trip.

Loved our guide. Loved the small sized group (5). Learned so much about the important history of Delphi. The trip to the bee farm with lunch was outstanding. Would highly recommend to everyone.

The trip was beautiful. The guide was very friendly and provided a lot of information. I would only recommend extending your stay in Napfilio, 2 hours is a very short time to explore the city.

Ruslan picked us up on time at our hotel. He was so personable and very knowledgeable. The entire tour was very well organized. We would recommend Ruslan and this tour.

Georgina was amazing. The food n entertainment was excellent 👌😍
