A day trip to Delphi is a must if you're visiting Athens. Pickup was easy and I slept most of the way there and back. We visited during low season so our bus was quite empty. Vasilis our guide was great, gave detailed instructions and pointed out places of interest. This is not a fully guided tour so don't expect a full on history lesson on the bus. I preferred the audio VR guide because it allowed me to go at my own pace rather than be ushered around by a tour guide. Highly recommend going all the way to the top of the archeological site first in case you run out of time. We stopped at a cafe for breakfast and in the town of Delphi for lunch. Also, it was not listed in the description but our ticket included a free day of the hop on/off bus in Athens.

The archaeological site at Delphi was on our bucket list, and so we decided to take this day trip from Athens, instead of finding our way through public transport or private car hire. We booked it late in the PM, for an early start the next morning. Not a problem at all - our guide Vasilis was extremely organised and sent me a msg early in the AM to confirm exactly where we would be picked up - there are four sites in Central Athens. The Temple of Apollo, with Agora, theatre is breathtaking, we were left to explore it at our own pace (with about 2.5hrs allotted), with the digital guide. This worked well for us. We also had an hour long stop in Delphi, where we ate in a restaurant with lovely food and an amazing view of the mountains (again, it is left up to us what to do on Delphi). For us, it really worked to have all the logistics taken care of, but also to have the freedom to explore on our own. All in all, an extremely pleasant day. Highly recommended.

The trip went smoothly, Vasilis our instructor is efficient and generous with sharing his insights. I thought the lunch time allocation of 75 minutes was rather generous. The 2.5 hr time for Delphi site & Museum was not quite sufficient, 3 hrs would have been just right. Lunch break of 45 minutes would be okay.
