We did a day trip from Athens - the bus drive was excellent - scenery amazing. Was surprised - or not - to see fellow travellers playing with their phones all the way there - did they know what they where missing out on!!! We could have spent longer here - but of course time constraints on the tour. Make... More

While in Athens one should book a tour to Delphi. The ancient Greeks believed Delphi was the center of the world, and the ruins are a testament to the sanctity of this place. Tucked away in the mountains about two hours from Athens, the Oracle at Delphi offers a stunning glimpse of antiquity. Points of interest include the Temple of... More

Tour company represent came and collect me from the Hilton Athens hotel, where I stayed. Delphi about 180 km from Athens, three hours journey. We accompanied with lovely tour guide... More

My wife had never been to Greece and we had two days to see some highlights. We booked with Michael Taxi Tours because of his promptness, courtesy and flexibility. We had checked with a number of other vendors but Michael came out on top. We had Stratos for our driver and he arrived promptly at our hotel to pick us... More

it's a place I suggest that you visit at least once in your life. the landscape is just amazing, the ancients give a harmony to the place...if you stay even for one night in one of the sweet and beautiful hotels of the area you will wake up in a different wind...even I couldn't believe it :)

Delfi was according to ancient Greeks the center of the World. The whole area is breathtaking, stip slope of the mountain with ancient ruins. Visiting and walking up the slope, a feeling of ancient Greek visitor gets into you. At the top stands the temple of Apollo - God of music and light. The view is breathtaking. You must visit...

Have no illusions. If you visited this place in its heydays, I am pretty sure this place would have been no different from multitudes of such pilgrimage centres. Hawkers, hustlers, the faithful and lots of crowd. In its current state however, Delphi truly has a deep mystic element to its ambience. Halfway into the clouds with the ruins extending from...

It was raining when we were there but that adds to the mystic of the location. Surprisingly I'd expected just a temple at the top but didn't figure that a little business town sprung up around it with treasuries and shops. Again, without a good guide, this location is not as meaningful.

One of the most beautiful places in the world. Visiting needs some physical effort . It will take all day long to see all ruins and the museum.
