Very enjoyable experience. We visited the archaeological museum and the Delphi site (total time there of 2 hours and 20, maybe a little short for me, but reasonable for the times). The very kind, helpful and prepared guide (he introduced us during the trip the site and illustrated the surroundings) then made us visit the ancient temple of Athena and took us for lunch in a typical good restaurant (abundant dishes and low prices ). Finally he accompanied us to Arachova and showed us the city from the bell tower, as well as the museum on local traditions.

Everything was well-organised, the guide was very friendly and knowledgable but was not overbearing. The group consisted of 12 passengers, and the bus was modern and clean with a capacity of around 16 people, so the overall experience was intimate and relaxed. Fascinating trip, well worth doing if you are staying in Athens.

We had Athena as our tour guide and she was absolutely amazing, kind and friendly. This tour will get you to Delphi way before anyone else (shout out to Yannis our driver) and not having a guide to take you around is a blessing as you can go at your own pace (Athena tells you all about Delphi on the 2 hour trip). The restaurant you stop at after visiting Delphi is incredible (please try the local cheese, I wish I had more of it) and the surprise walking trip around Arachova was a lovely way to end the trip. As we got back to Halandri, Athena gave us loads of recommendations from archeological sites to bars and restaurants! Overall an amazing experience 10/10
