Full description

Embark on an unforgettable guided day trip from Athens to Delphi, the navel of the ancient Greek world. Visit the Delphi Archeological Site and museum and see the Temple of Apollo, the Sanctuary of Athena Pronaia, and more. Later, get free time to explore a scenic village.

The morning of your trip, meet your licensed tour guide and depart in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. The drive takes about 2.5 hours going each way, so sit back and enjoy the passing scenery as you pass through the Boeotia plains.

As you travel, begin to immerse yourself in Ancient Greece as your guide tells tales about ancient Greek mythology, King Oedipus, God Apollo, and more.

Your first stop will be at Kryas Livadeia Springs, a picturesque valley near the city of Levadia. Streams, limestone formations, stone and wooden bridges, and walking routes along the banks create the perfect scenery for a photo walk.

During a guided tour through the archaeological site, see some of the most important and unique archaeological monuments, such as the Temple of Apollo and its oracle, the Athenian Stoa, the Polygonal Wall.

Later, you can visit the Archaeological Museum of Delphi (entry fees paid on site), which hosts globally known pieces of art like the Sphinx of Naxos, the Statue of Antinous, the Siphnian Treasury, and the Charioteer of Delphi.

After the visit to Delphi, hop back on the bus to the multicolored village of Arachova, built on the mountainside. Get free time to arrange for lunch on your own at a traditional taverna (costs not included).

Take time to go on a stroll around the village’s narrow alleys, enter some artisanal shops for local delicacies, and admire the local hand-woven carpets. In the late afternoon, depart for your return to Athens, on another 2.5-hour drive.

This was an excellent tour led by Anna who provided so much interesting information which was very well paced and helped us to gain a real appreciation of the importance and the significance of the sites we visited. The Temple of Ayhena has been in my thoughts ever since! We stopped for lunch at an excellent restaurant in Arachova which was recommended to us by our wonderful guide and which fortified us for our trip home. An excellent day - thank you!

The tour is a must if you have a passion for the ancient ruins of Greece and Greek mythological myths. Visiting the site was magical with an incredible view of the valleys and mountains. We did the tour towards the end of June and it was very hot. So definitely bring sunscreen and water, however, despite the heat, it is still very worth the trip. Demitrius was a wonderful tour guide who made the trip to Delphi insightful, fun and engaging. Would highly recommend for someone who enjoys exploring.

Zita (guide) and Kennedy (driver) were wonderful during the trip - personable, knowledgeable, and just fun to be around. We learned so much on this excursion! Delphi and the gorgeous surrounding mountains were phenomenal and steeped in interesting history. Thanks for making the trip enjoyable for me and my daughter!
