Full description

Explore the most famous sights of ancient Greece on this guided day trip to magical Delphi. Spend an entire day learning about the oracle and discovering ancient ruins including the amphitheater and the Temple of Apollo.

Your tour departs from Athens, from where you will travel to Delphi, located on the spur of Mount Parnassus, making a short rest stop outside the town of Levadia. Arrive in Delphi, and visit the famous theater, where you will enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, and get an insight into the world of the Ancient Greeks. Visit the Temple of Apollo, the center of Ancient Greece, and best-known for its famous oracle. Tour the Museum of Delphi, home to a unique bronze Charioteer, the Naxian Sphinx, and the Statue of Antinoos, providing an amazing insight into Ancient Greek culture and history.

After a lunch break, visit Athena Pronaia Sanctuary (depending on the local authority's permission), the most photographed spot in Delphi.

Then, head back to Athens via the beautiful mountain village of Arachova, situated on the hills of the Parnassus Mountains, where the tour will stop for a short photo opportunity.

Stevie was a great guide - very knowledgeable and helpful. I loved Delphi - it was amazing. The lunch stop was also lovely and I was surprised at the quality and quantity of lunch we got included. Only negative, the itinerary said we stopped in a couple of places to take pictures of pretty villages etc we passed and we didn't do that

Try to get Mariana! OMG! She is amazing! She is well prepared and knows the material on the top of her head. She was active, gave super interesting facts and information. She truly loves what she does, her voice was always loud, and clear. Mariana gave an excellent tour, she was always attentive towards all of us. The explanations overall were structured, well-thought, and on point. She gave excellent recommendations to museums and alternate tours. We ended up going the next day to the museum she suggested and it was beautiful! Highly recommended, she made the trip worth every penny. We liked her so much, we are willing to come back to take any other of her tours. Thank you!

The tour of the museum and Delphi are excellent. It’s definitely a must-see place in my opinion! However, the lunch stop and first WC stop are definitely scams - they take you to places that are painfully overpriced considering what low quality of food you receive and they’re conveniently out of the way so you have no other options. Would definitely recommend bringing your own lunch and snacks (although the second WC stop was much better).
