Alex our driver was great, location is beautiful!
Nov 2021
We did this tour on our second day in Athens, and while it is a bit of drive out to the site, I thought it was a great break from the city and you get to see some of the Greek countryside. We had a scheduled Covid test (unfortunately) at our hotel the same evening, so we had to cut the trip a little short and we skipped the monastery. Alex our driver was great and provided a nice video about the history of the site that we watched on our way to the site. Once we got to Delphi, the site and museum was fascinating, and Alex made sure we got to see the Athena site as well! The restaurant we visited in Delphi was the best of our trip and the views from the restaurant terrace were unbelievable. If you want to get out of the city and see some more of the ancient sites, I highly recommend this trip!

Superb tour
Oct 2021
This was a fantastic tour. Delphi is one of the wonders of the world, and we are so happy that we got to see it and hear about its history. The monastery Hosios Loukas is also a gem. The incredible scenery at both locations makes the tour even more impressive. Our guide Martina and our driver Vangelis were so friendly and helpful and made the whole experience excellent; Martina showed us around all the locations and gave us fascinating information about them, as well as finding us a great restaurant for lunch (with a spectacular view and very good food). Vangelis was an extremely good driver, and even produced umbrellas and rain capes for us when the weather threatened to turn wet! We had a wonderful day which we will always remember.

Excellent tour
This was an excellent tour and we really enjoyed the day with our Guide Nasos! He is very knowledgeable and passionate about the culture and history of Greece. It is a long drive to get to the sites but it is worth the time, at least two hours each direction. It was wonderful to see Delphi, and the Temple of Apollo, and the original Olympic stadium. Be aware that climbing the site at Delphi is not easy, and definitely not a good idea for the elderly or people who are not in good shape. Be sure to visit the museum at Delphi because it was impressive. Even though the vehicle was a new Mercedes van I was not so happy with it, The seats are very stiff, the AC does not have a separate control for the backseat (the good Mercedes vehicles offer this) and for such a long trip there should be Wi-Fi offered in the van. For the high Price of this tour Olive sea should have a better vehicle.

Ask for Alex!
Jul 2021
Alex was superb -- he timed everything perfectly. Yes, it's a long drive, but the mountains and the stop at the monastery and the LUNCH were simply delightful! The ruins at Delphi and the museum are so evocative. There is excellent signage and so much remains there that you truly imagine yourself there -- perhaps running at the stadium, or in the amphitheater. Pro tips 1) bring some hiking shoes as the ruins are on the side of Mt. Parnassus, and the trails are gravel and some may need better footing than just tennis shoes (although we did fine with them
2) Ask to see the museum first -- it helps in interpreting the site 3) don't weenie out -- go clear to the top and see the amazingly intact stadium!

A perfect trip to Delphi
Feb 2020 • Family
We had a great trip to Delphi with Olive Sea travel. Our tour leader, Ioanna, and driver, Tas, were both so friendly and helpful. Ioanna really knows her stuff and offers great and thoughtful background about the site and really sets the scene. The stop at Hosios Loukas on the way is 100% worth it. Perfect day out. We really felt like we were catching a ride to Delphi with old friends rather than on a paid tour. Highest recommendation!

To Delphi
Aug 2019
Michael provided a safe and comfortable private tour. We began and ended on time, with a comfortable pace throughout the 8 hour day. The monastery of Hosios Loukas was a memorable and peaceful stop, the kind of site where one wants to linger. A pleasant lunch in the town of Delphi overlooking a sea of olive trees was followed by our visit to world famous Delphi. A very interesting Hellenistic archeological site that fires the imagination, this was once a place of pilgrimage, and in a manner of speaking, still is today, even without the Pythian Oracle. From the museum, up the Sacred Way passed the Theater to the Stadia, and over to the ruins of the Sanctuary of Athena Pronea, we did our best to observe "the navel of the world". Throughout the day, Michael offered bits of historical, mythological, and religious information. We ended our day by following his advice regarding a restaurant for our evening meal. It was a very good day in Greece. Also of note, the communication with Olive Sea was prompt and smooth from start to finish, therefore a Thank You to Eleftheria Nikoloudaki, Ευχαριστώ
