Full description

Hop on board an air-conditioned vehicle and depart for Delphi Archaeological Site. Find yourself being immersed in the myths and monuments of Ancient Greece as you drive through Boeotia, hearing tales about King Oedipus, God Apollo, and more. The main stop of the tour is the Delphi Archaeological Site. Upon arrival, marvel at some of the most important and unique archaeological monuments, such as the Athenian Stoa, the Treasury of the Athenians, the Polygonal Wall, and the Temple of Apollo.

Visit the Archaeological Museum of Delphi, which hosts globally known artifacts like the Naxian Sphinx, the frieze of the Treasury of the Sifnians, the bronze Charioteer of Delphi, and the statue of Antinoos.

Make a final stop in the village of Arachova. Here, get time for lunch in one of the many traditional restaurants of the village (costs not included). Take a walk around the villages' narrow alleys, where you can admire hand-woven carpets and buy local delicacies such as Formaela cheese.

In the late afternoon, get back on the vehicle and return to Athens.

What a fantastic tour. The drive is a bit long, but our guide made great use of the time by providing a lot of information about the areas we were driving through, and prepping us for the visit to Delphi. The tour of the site and museum were wonderful, and going with a licensed guide was critical to really understanding the site and its history. We were a group of 17 people and the transport was an extremely comfortable Mercedes mini-bus. The driver did an excellent job getting us out of and back into Athens while avoiding the worst of the rush hour traffic. My only negative comment is that after booking I noticed some fine print saying that guided tours of the site are not included for bookings between November and March. I hadn't seen this when booking, and the use of a licensed guide was the sole reason I chose this tour over a number of others so I was pretty upset. Thankfully, we did have a licensed guide after all, but perhaps that's only because we were a large group.

Our guide Kimon and driver were great. Quite a long day most of it in the hot sun. Our only gripe is that we specifically booked and paid more for a 'small group' which was supposed to be not more than 15 people. It turned out to be many more than that. So I wouldn't bother paying for the 'small groups'.

We were very satisfied with the whole process. Our driver was very nice and accommodating. He provided us with information on the drive to Delphi and also let us get off at two places to visit them. In Delphi he reserved a table for us in a restaurant, where we went to eat after our tour. The restaurant was very good. Our tour guide confidently guided us through the museum and the excavation site in German. We were all excited.
