A Magic Journey with Spyros
Gina_F, Mar 2024
Spyros was an incredible orchestrator of our day. As other review have noted, this is not a “guided tour” tour… this is a masterfully managed and executed agenda to see incredible things with great comfort. Our driver was excellent at driving, explaining, accommodating… he knew all the best ways to move through crowded places, arranged a world-class meal at a table with a stunning view and was 100% pleasant all day. Very comfortable accommodations. We all highly recommend if you want a day to feel cared for and without worry as you see magic places.

Lovely Day!
Kaye_I, Mar 2024
We had a lovely drive to Delphi in a comfortable car driven by "Bill." Don't miss Delphi, it's worth your time! The history and beauty is beyond words. Bill took us to a nice Greek restaurant overlooking the water and landscape. Breathtaking!! He also let us shop for awhile in Delphi. If you are looking for a tour guide through the ancient ruins, this is not it. Bill does provide some information about historical sites but he is not an historical tour guide. It was a lovely day.

Visit to Delphi
Kurt_E, Nov 2023
Went on a private tour with guide Notis and found him to be very knowledgeable about Greek culture, language and history. He dropped us off at the Delphi site so we could visit the ruins as well as the museum. Both were impressive. After picking us up he took as to a terrific restaurant in the little town up in the mountains where we had a delicious lunch. All in all it was a wonderful day.

Delphi - a day to remember!
Rowena_M, Oct 2023
A wonderful day! Delphi is the most stunning setting for the impressive archaeological site so special to the ancient Greeks and remains fascinating to people from throughout the world today. The museum housing treasures from votive offerings, artifacts, sculptures and parts of buildings brought to life the architectural remains we had wandered through earlier. The site is steep and there are many steps so be prepared for a workout, but it is well worth the effort. We chose a private tour due to limited time and mobility issues and our driver, Peter from Athens Transfers company, was outstanding. He was punctual, knowledgeable, flexible in accommodating our requests and needs, and a safe, competent driver. We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Delphi - what an experience!

A visit to the Oracle
Mary_S, Oct 2023
What a wonderful beginning to our Greek adventure! Vasilis (Bill) met us promptly at 7:00 am for our trip to Delphi. Note, it is a 2.5 hour drive in large part due to Athens traffic. No worries, our private van had wi-fi! Delphi was incredible if for no other reason than the stunning views; oh, and the history, of course! Do wear walking shoes with good traction...that marble can be slick. We opted for no included lunch, and while we were touring the ancient ruins, Bill made lovely arrangements for us at a local restaurant. On the return trip, we strolled the streets and shopped in Arachova, a charming ski resort town. Don't let the drive time discourage you; Delphi is worth it. Bill was awesome, so patient with all the traffic and making sure we were comfortable throughout the trip.

Great trip to Delphi with Yanni
Rhea_E, Oct 2023
Our day trip from Athens to Delphi went exactly as expected. We were picked up on time at our departure point. We actually did not remember that our hotel was on a pedestrian only st, Aiolou 31, the Athens City View Urban Suite. So we notified Viator of pick up destination then changed to a location just down the street, Lukumades at 21 Aiolou. The driver was courteous, answered questions, provided opportunities for breakfast and toilet breaks, and of course safely drove us to Delphi. He recommended we tour the ruins first while it was cooler, then see the museum. Allow for at least 2 1/2 hours for archaeological site and museum because you do start at bottom of site and steadily move up through the site, until you get to the stadium ruins and turn around. We chose to leave Athens at 7:00 am and we did miss the traffic(also it was an October Sunday). We chose the no lunch option and paid for lunch ourselves in Delphi, where we ate at Vakho’s Taverna (recommended by our driver). Either with or without lunch seems to be okay. We had a great trip enjoying the mountains and discussing Delphi during our drive. I strongly recommend that you read more on Delphi’s history and about the ruins or hire a guide. We love history so chose to self guide. Thanks again to Yanni, our driver, for a wonderful day in Greece.

Could Have Been Better
Everett_M, Oct 2023
The tour was with a driver and car. A guide was not included. The driver was pleasant, but not licensed to guide at Delphi, so the tour was on our own. After rechecking the tour agreement, I now realize this was accurately described, but feel the the amount charged was overly high for only a car, driver and lunch. This could have been far better if the driver was a licensed guide.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you for your review. We are sorry we did not meet your expectations. This is a very popular product and as you already mentioned the description is very accurate. As it is explicitly stated on our product page "Our drivers are not official tour guides, but they are knowledgeable and can provide fascinating commentary in fluent English. Although they will not enter the sites with you, they can answer your questions about the places you visit with this tour.". Furthermore, there is the option to book a licensed tour guide at an additional cost but you never asked for one. As you already mentioned, you realized that this was accurately described, so we do not understand the 3-star review. The price of this product is among the lowest for this destination. Thank you.

Day trip to Delphi
Beth_F, Aug 2023
What a wonderful welcome to Greece! George picked us up at the airport and drove us to Delphi. He gave us information along the way and stopped so we can use the bathroom and get a drink/snack. Once in Delphi, everything was perfect. We needed to switch up the order of tours a bit and it was no problem. He was always waiting for us with cold water and an air conditioned car! Delphi was amazing, the food at the restaurant he took us to was unbelievable, and the ride was comfortable and safe. We were dropped off right at our hotel in Athens. Highly recommend. My son and I have no regrets. Thanks George!
