What people are saying about Delphi Archaeological Museum
After a lot of research comparing what appeared to be the same tour across many companies, we chose the GO Tours 1 day Delphi trip. The positives - The tour is nice, though fast paced. George, who was our guide was full of information, humor, and kept things interesting at all times. With an average or below-average guide, this would have been bad. The ride itself is pleasant as you hear more history on Athens and the various towns and changes over various periods. The bad - Pickup/drop is annoying. Everyone should meet at one point and be on their way. Its a waste of gas and time that could otherwise be spent at the site. The tour is really fast paced. Maybe too fast for those that are older. We are in good shape and were nearly speed walking/jogging at points. You can elect to pass on lunch, but know that you cant go anywhere as you are too far away from town. There are stops going to (coffee) and from (Tourist shop) the site that are a waste. These should also be removed.
GO tours had no technology. In a tour of 40 some odd people it is imperative to hear what is being said to have a good tour. Unless you were within 15 feet of the guide you heard nothing. Very large competing tours giving their commentary 20 feet away as there were large crowds. Extremely hard to hear at some times. Use of ear microphones would have been advantageous so the whole tour could hear not just the first 10 people who were able to keep up on the line up. The guide was short so it was often difficult to find her in the sea of other tours that were there at the same time. It would have helped if she would carry a flag or marker so her tour could recognize where she was going. Bus trip to Delphi was long so carrying a book or music to listen to would be a good idea.
My mum and I did this trip during our three night stay in Athens. Our tour guide, Effie, was extremely knowledgeable throughout the trip, retelling mythical stories, pointing out areas of interest and bringing the Temple of Apollo to life. The meeting point was very easy to find, the spot for lunch was beautiful and the short stop in Arachova was lovely! I would definitely recommend doing this trip!!
Our guide was very knowledgeable about the site in general but left the tour group with only 20 minutes of free time for roaming & seeing Delphi in its entirety. The guide was very keen on sharing the information he knew which I think ate up most of the tour duration unfortunately.
A mystic experience and a walk through the history of Delphi . The guide took us through the amazing treasures so well that we never knew when the time to exit came up . Truly a must visit for all travellers Strongly recommended for anybody visiting Greece
