Georgia was a great host. We enjoyed our privat tour through the museum, where she told us interesting facts about the artefacts and prepared us for the visit to the ancient site. After a short stroll you enter the archeological site of Delphi and can truly immerse yourself in those tales of the ancient oracle. We chose this tour only a day and half in advance and were anxiously waiting for a call or a message by Georgia. It didn’t help, that WhatsApp showed her online... Eventually we got a reply in iMessages and could arrange the time. So have patience, it will all work out in the end ;) We would definitely recommend this tour.
The day tour to Delphi was great. The bus was spacious, easily recognizable at the pick-up point, and left on time. Our guide brought us into the archeological site and museum and provided the same commentary in English and French, and that's fine with us. Arachova was slightly disappointing compared to Delphi as we had only 15-20 minutes to walk around for photos before heading back to Athens. The other downside is that the restaurant where lunch was served is not near Arachova. As we did not order lunch, we could not use the one hour lunch break to walk around or explore that town.
The guide was good and provided interesting information. The group size was too big to make a tight enough circle around the guide to hear her. Also the pick up instructions should be clearer. There were 5-6 buses in the same area. Knowing the color of the bus and/or that the tour company name is displayed on the windshield would have been helpful to know.
This tour was a great way to see the site as well as get fantastic tour of the museum. Our guide Georgia was amazing! She was very knowledgeable and was always willing to answer questions. Museums aren't typically our thing, but having Georgia provide the background and history of the exhibits made it totally worthwhile.
Total day of Perfection! I was thrilled with the day and was blown away by the sites and the experience. No need to pre-order the meal. You can order directly from the menu when at the restaurant. Would recommend this tour to everyone!!!
