Partida de seu hotel no início da manhã. Dirija pela planície fértil de Beotia, cruzando as cidades de Tebas - ligadas à tragédia do Rei Édipo e a cidade de Levadia, onde você fará uma parada para descansar. Chegue a Delfos, conhecido nos tempos antigos como o umbigo do mundo, o "Omphalos", cujo prestígio se estendia bem além dos limites do Mundo Helênico.
We were a small group of 7, two of us and a family of five. The van that picked us up was small with three seats forward and three seats facing backwards and one man sat with the driver in the front seat. If you do not do well riding backwards in a confined space, this trip would not be for you. The driver was very congenial, but we assumed from the trip description that we would have a licensed guide with us to inform us about Greek history and generally where we were going, Delphi, in the threehour ride. A licensed tour guide did meet us at the Delphi Archealogical Museum and gave us an excellent tour of the museum and then proceeded to give us a thorough tour of Delphi. Georgia's extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for Delphi history was obvious and her English was easy to understand. Our driver then took us to a restaurant nearby for lunch that had a wonderful view and delicious food, which is not included in the tour price, but was reasonable. Then, we went to the town of Arachna for shopping. In our opinion, this stop could be eliminated, although some in our group bought food items. It then took 3.5 hours to drive back to Athens, because of the usual late afternoon Athens heavy traffic. Delphi is definitely worth a trip, but with such a small van, hope that you get on the tour with a lovely family as we did.
Excellent tour to ancient Delphi. Picking up was easy and punctual and the driver very kind with fluent English.Drive along mainland Greece was very interesting and gave as the opurtunity to see a lot of Greece's country side.The official tour guide provide tons of information about history and mythology as we walked along ancient Delphi and the Delphi museum. Our day finished by having a great lunch in a traditional Greek tavern with wonderfull view of the mountains. Great tour and great service!
