What people are saying about Delphi, Greece

It was a complete treat to travel with Takis, our friendly driver, out from Athens to Thermopylae and on to Delphi, coming home via Arachova. This was a most relaxed way to experience these rich archeological sites with no rush and lots of much appreciated local advice and information along the way – including a delicious lunch recommendation with a spectacular view in Delphi itself. It was great to experience the juxtaposition of the sparse site of the Battle of Thermopylae with the vast number of ruins on the site at Delphi, and the drive out from Athens, between all the sites, and back into Athens was beautiful to experience as a passenger. The car was comfortable and the cold water was much appreciated. The drive through the UNESCO listed olive groves that surround Delphi as an unexpected highlight as well. Very grateful we were able to do this: it was a day to remember.

This trip is not to be missed! We enjoyed the ride to Delphi which passed by a very beautiful town. At Delphi, we witnessed a magnificent view of the entire place and a gorgeous mountain view. We enjoyed this visit way more than Acropolis. Many thanks to our driver guide, George who picked us up on time, provided us sufficient time for toilet breaks and recommended a nice family restaurant where we enjoyed the most delicious Greek meal.

A very interesting excursion with a friendly driver who also offered photo opportunities. Suggestion for improvement: More information about Thermopylae and Delphi could be provided before or at the beginning of the tour.

Wonderful, unforgettable day! And Dimitri the driver was great all day with us!

Dimitri great driver and a lot of knowledge about area
