Excellent tour. Guide was most knowledgeable. Museum was fascinating. An interesting contrast with Delos. How the myths do work.
We did not opt in for lunch. Menu selection at restaurant was broad and everyone enjoyed their selections.

Amazing Time visiting Delphi! Highly Recommend!
My partner and I had 3 days in Athens to spare and we didn’t think we needed that much time to go around and see all the sites we wanted to see so we decided to do a day trip tour to Delphi and it was definitely the best decision!

First, I want to say thank you to Mariana for being such an amazing tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the history of Delphi and answered every question we had. Thank you so much!

The tour itself was awesome and it was definitely curated for people who want to see sites, learn about the history, and then go on their own pace.

The restaurant that they picked for us to have lunch at was also great! My partner had the lamb chops and was the probably one of the best we’ve ever had!

The pit stop in Arachova for an amazing photo op was also magical! I’m you can’t really see the beauty from the photos but you’ll be in awe just being there and see the town against the mountains!

Delphi is so beautiful and being on top of the mountain and seeing the ruins of Apollo’s temple was such a dream come true! I highly recommend this tour for anyone.

Thank you Key Day Tours and Mariana and team for showing us Delphi!

Fantastic Tour ans LUNCH
Wonderful tour! One of the best we have been on!

NO STOPS AT TOURIST SOUVENIER TRAPS

Delphi is wonderful and the bus ride was nice and calm. There is no toilet on the bus, so you don't have to worry about an unpleasant smell. And the tour stops once each way for a bathroom break and food.

Speaking of food, LUNCH IS A HIGHLIGHT! Whether you choose to include lunch or not, you will want to eat at the restaurant. It's absolutely delicious.

The only "negative" I have from our tour is that it was done in both English and Spanish and it was not advertised as a dual-language tour. The biggest downside is the tour guide talks constantly and you have to wait for the translation.

Otherwise, highly recommend

Unforgettable experience with the great Marianna
Sep 2021 • Family
We had that tour... and just wow! Our guide, Marianna Tsigaridou, was absolutely brilliant. Her stories were great... she gives a lot of information without making it aggravating, and she's a natural speaker.

She's very friendly and responsive.

As for Delphi... a wonderful, beautiful experience. An absolute must for anyone visiting Greece.

False advertising: Did not stop at Athina Temple as promised
Aug 2021
Although the tour guide was informative, the tour did not stop at the Athina temple as shown in the photos, which was a highlight listed in the tour description. The price was too much and we did not get any communication from Key Tours about why the stop was missed.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. We feel sorry for not having met your expectations during your tour at Delphi. Please note that regarding the non-stop to Athena Pronaia, although it was in our schedule, the police unexpectedly didn't allow us to stop due to difficulties in the traffic. Unfortunately, it was out of our authorization. In any case, we completely understand your disappointment and we apologize again for it. We remain at your disposal for anything else you may need.

Those steps had me huffing and puffing
First off, our tour guide Mariana was great. It's definitely a long day trip but totally worth it. Be warned there are many steps to climb at Delphi, especially if you go all the way to the top after the tour. The only thing I did not enjoy was the restaurant we stopped at afterwards. I had payed for the lunch option in advance and regretted it. You can still eat at the restaurant if you didn't pay for the lunch option. It was very crowded with another tour bus from the same company and the service was abysmal honestly. Still highly recommend the tour!

Receiving the Oracle at Delphi
Aug 2021 • Couples
The tour guide was amazing, she could be a professor of Greek history. The downsides were that it was too hot (37° C) and the tour had trouble picking us up in the morning with the bus. They made up for it by paying for a taxi to take us to the departure point of the tour.

Good but not what we booked
Aug 2021 • Couples
Everything was absolutely fine until the very end, where we did not stop at the athena pronaia as we were promised. Thisas we were not provided the experience, I can't but give this one star rating. Beware of booking if this is important.

As an aside, we booked the no-lunch option, but were driven to a single restaurant with no other options around, so we're all but forced to eat at this single place.

Fantastic trip
Jul 2021
Marianna Tsig. led an amazing trip to Delphi. So knowledgeable and engaging throughout. The Delphi site is incredible, with such a special connection to the history of the world. The lunch that comes included is good but quite large, so maybe skip dinner that night if you pre-pay for the lunch. Otherwise you can just order what you want / need at the restaurant. Sit on the left-side of the bus - you'll get the best views of Arachova and Delphi + sea as you approach.
