The destination is not just a very significant archeological site, but also located at a very picturesque landscape surrounded by mountains and valleys. This is probably the top destination for a day trip from Athens in my opinion. I recommend keep going up the slopes a little bit further to get even better views and photos. Our guide Yorgus was very nice, knowledgeable and made sure everyone is comfortable. The tour was in English and Spanish and the drive was in a very comfortable bus. The tour started with a brief of important sites in historical Athens on our way to the highway, it was a nice bonus but not necessary if you stay in Athens and probably already seen it. The only downside was the restaurant lunch location, it was at an ok restaurant with ok prices, I would prefer having lunch at the nearby village and have the option and time to choose where to have lunch, possibly at a place with nicer views.

Good tour, well organized, knowledgeable guide although not super friendly. What I did not like was that we had a photo stop at the most famous view of Delphi, but we couldn't walk right to it (literally 1 min walk downhill) because "we didn't have time". Could have easily spent a few minutes less somewhere else and not be denied opportunity to take a good picture there, especially if you come all the way from the other side of the world.

KeyTours changed the date of our booking because we needed to, thank you so much! We had a smart guide, great busses (take a jacket with you, it was really cold in the bus in the morning). For us it was too little time to explore Delphi ourselves and the restaurant was not so great but the hour there was great to have some rest from bus ride.
