Disappointing
From the reviews we expected an amazing trip, It was just an average experience. Probably worth doing but..
1.the guide, Steve, was sick! This would be unacceptable for any other occasion but for the time of pandemic is just unimaginable....she was sneezing and coughing throughout the trip and had her mask just over her mouth.
2. Otherwise the bus didn't have the promised wifi, the meal was a ripoff and they rushed through both historical site and the museum.

Since you drive all the way there and pass through Arachova, it would be great to have a 30 min stop. (Arachova is a beautiful town in the mountain.unlikely one would go to the town itself).

Overall, a bit disappointing.

AWESOME EXPERIENCE
Jul 2021 • Friends
Very very informative tour! The guides were amazing! If anyone is looking to do a tour now, wear comfortable shoes and a hat, it’s super hot outside. A couple of things to add— there wasn’t any WiFi on the plane and they also don’t provide water. I’ve been on your were they do. I think it’s definitely something they should consider especially in this heat. So I recommend bringing your own bottle since water will sell out quickly during the Delphi tour. Overall great experience!!!! 5 stars to the guides!!!

Long, but great experience!
Jul 2021
I had a great experience at my recent tour to Delphi. One of the biggest concerns I had about doing a tour was being rushed, and I did not feel as if I was. The tour had two guides and Evan was good at explaining everything and working at our pace. I intentionally chose not to invoke the lunch option for this tour, so I could spend more time at the site. When they left for lunch at 2:15, I left the archeological site and then toured the museum on my own until ~3:30. The extra time was well worth skipping lunch, since I had grabbed a lot of food at the pitstop earlier en route. For the pit stop, walk the 2 minutes to the Shell station next door to the rest area, better supply of food and water for better prices.

Generally for the tour if you do book with lunch: arrived at the site at noon, had an hour tour, then half hour to walk around on our own, then the museum until 2:15. July 2021 - the guides earlier said they could not go in with you at the museum, but I skipped the guided intro before the museum so I do not know what actually happened at the meeting site for the museum.

My only complaints: they did not offer pickup at Piraeus. And as I just arrived that AM, it was a bit crazy to try to connect the 6am ferry with all my luggage to the tour office, and then remind them at the end that I booked with a separate drop off than my original pick up location.

It was annoying that you could not eat or drink on the bus. The guide Katya used COVID and "keeping bus clean" as an excuse. Sorry, but I ate anyways because I didn't invoke the lunch option and was not going to starve. However, I witnessed earlier in the morning that saw Katya be condescending towards a couple in front of me who were trying to eat fruit they bought. Her tone was a bit snobbish towards people trying to eat. For a tour that runs from 8am to 7pm, asking us to refrain from eating on the bus is overzealous. It's one thing to say pick up after yourself, but another to snap at a couple eating fruit.

Evan was the better guide on our dually guided tour! Even with these minor complaints, it was still a great tour!

Amazing Sight
Jun 2021
The tour guide Mariamna Tsigaridou was amazing. We did a day trip to Delphi, the bus was on time to pick us up from our hotel, the driver was professional and on point. The highlight of the tour besides Delphi and Temple of Apollo was the knowledge and care of the tour guide. Mariamna had everything on the tip of her fingers and made us all aware of the historic places and events we were seeing.

This is a good value for money tour.
As a tour guide myself,I was travelling solo for a week so I was looking for tour which was close to athens, provided a central pick up point,a basic guided tour of historical sites and other unique stops on the way. The need for a guide is essential in my opinion,as it deepens your experience of the area by letting you know the historical significance of delphi and Greek culture.
This tour checks all the boxes. It saves you planning an itinerary,factoring in buses and extra fees for guides.
It's easy to book, easy to find and my guide was informative throughout the day,starting with a overview of Athens city itself.
There's also a nice stop off for lunch,if or get the name. you can order your own menu or preorder it when booking.the food was very nice.I had the moussaka.
Also,the guided tour of museum is an added bonus and we'll worth attending.
You get to see the statue of the sphinx,the charioteer, and an incredible wall relief amongst other stuff.
Well worth booking and saving yourself time.just sit back and relax and enjoy.
