The guide was extremely informative with lots of facts and history although I am glad she did not ask questions afterwards! The drive to Delphi was in quite a cold bus. Another passenger mentioned it and they fiddled with the Air Con however it did not make much difference. This was March with cold mornings - The bus needed the heating on not air con. We did not want dinner as we would have it at the hotel later so the Guide asked everyone and it was thought better to spend the time in Arachova instead where there are many restaurants where people can choose where to eat. We found a lovely tavern with a balcony which had a glorious view. Why not plan in the extra time in Arachova instead of a restaurant miles from the town?

Guide Theodore informative and knowledgeable. Delphi was wonderful as was the scenery with the drive. The restaurant we stopped at was extremely busy with other coach loads of tourists. Unfortunately the food was barely warm, service slow and the noise in the restaurant deafening. Would have been much better to drop us in Arachova and let us find a restaurant ourselves to eat.

This is a great day trip! Our tour guide (Athena) was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. There’s enough time dedicated to attractions as well as flexibility regarding bathroom breaks, lunch, etc. The temples are beautiful (even in the rain), and we had a great time! Couldn’t recommend this trip enough.
