It will be up to you to choose from a variety of flavors of the best known Greek dishes. After lunch, you will see a great view of Mount Parnassus and Itea. Then, it will be time to drive to the Thermopylae Battlefiends or the Hot Gates and the hot springs, where King Leonidas and the 300 brave Spartans gave their lives for the freedom of Greece.

One of the best excursions I have ever experienced while traveling! George was an excellent guide who planned the day perfectly and was very knowledgeable not only about the sites on the trip but on the whole region. Delphi was stunning, Thermopylae was moving, and the mountain scenery was fantastic all topped off by a late lunch on the seaside. I was very glad I was able to see both of the sites I wanted combined in one tour and it couldn’t have been better!

Wonderful trip! The guide was amazing and made me feel very welcome. Thermopylae was very special to visit, especially if you love history like me. Delphi has been my favorite place to visit in the world so far. I recommend this trip to anyone!
