    The day began with us all meeting at the location and then boarding the bus. Everyone was wearing a mask and the bus was nice and comfortable. A couple of hours in a quick pit stop for an iced coffee and Baklava (15 Euros.) Lots of picturesque villages on the way but not time to explore. Arrived at Delphi around 11ish. The tour guide provided headsets but we decided that we wanted to explore on our own. Just make sure you make your way back to the museum before 2pm. My son and I hiked to the stadium at the top (no time if you stick with the group.) Lunch was around 2:30pm so take snack if you have kids. The lunch was so so. Dried chicken and rice. The oives were rancid so not nice! Its a shame because they capitalised on the tour and it would have been nice to have a Greek Salad. Also no drinks included. Quick pit stop for photo opportunity on the way back and that was it. 6 hrs travelling in a bus. We got back around 6:30pm (depends on Athens traffic!) A very enjoyable day albeit hot.

    The trip to Delphi was amazing, our tour guides were very knowledgeable and were able to answer any and all questions. Delphi, in itself is not a place we would have gone ourself so this trip was perfect to learn the history of it. The only negative is not having any time to be in the modern village of Delphi, that would have made the experience 5 stars. Overall, worthwhile and a must do when traveling to Athens!

    The entire trip was awesome. The company picked us up at our hotel and the guide was truly knowledgeable regarding everything related to Athens and Delphi. She was courteous and the customer service was excellent. Kudos to Arnos the driver who was able to wiggle this huge tourist bus though very challenging and small roads with acute precision. Overall was great.
