It was a complete treat to travel with Takis, our friendly driver, out from Athens to Thermopylae and on to Delphi, coming home via Arachova. This was a most relaxed way to experience these rich archeological sites with no rush and lots of much appreciated local advice and information along the way – including a delicious lunch recommendation with a spectacular view in Delphi itself. It was great to experience the juxtaposition of the sparse site of the Battle of Thermopylae with the vast number of ruins on the site at Delphi, and the drive out from Athens, between all the sites, and back into Athens was beautiful to experience as a passenger. The car was comfortable and the cold water was much appreciated. The drive through the UNESCO listed olive groves that surround Delphi as an unexpected highlight as well. Very grateful we were able to do this: it was a day to remember.

Amazing trip, Tas was our driver and was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He covered everything from battles, mythology, the culture, etc. Tas showed up on time and made us feel like family. He made ajustments to our tour to show us more of his beautiful country and finished the day off in a outstanding restaurant that he recommended. We would strongly recommend this tour group and would recommended you ask for Tas.

We just returned from our trip with Yannis ! It was so worth it ! He takes the time to explain and tell you about Greek history. He is detailed, you feel super safe and comfortable. Don’t hesitate to book, we booked the Anchovia, Delphi and Spartan Battlefield. His recommendation for lunch was fantastic ! Husband and I are glad we booked this the night before and he called us to confirm. Super Class A service.

Excellent day for this excursion to Delphi and to the site of Thermopylae! Our driver George was very friendly, interesting in his mythological explanations and careful in driving without forgetting the site proposed for lunch… very pleasant restaurant with a very beautiful view in the calm of the village of Delphi!

The Conpany Ancient Greece Tours was wonderful. We highly recommend our guide, Yannis with a (z)" to guide your tour! Thank you!
