Guided Tour of Delphi by CHAT Tours
Delphi is one of the most scenic regions of the Mediterranean. It is the site of the world-famous oracle and sanctuary dedicated to the god Apollo, built on the slopes of Mount Parnassos. The splendid architecture of the temples, the theatre and the stadium combines with the grandiose view of the valley and the sea below to create a beautiful and unique heritage site. The museum of Delphi also holds splendid samples of ancient Greek sculptures. This tour is offered daily from April to October, and on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays from November to March. The departure time is 8.15am, returning at 6.30pm. It can be booked through your hotel reception or at any travel agency in Athens.
There was not nearly enough time to walk around and explore the site at Delphi. Our guide pointed out a few things near the entrance and then gave us 15 minutes to make it up to (and back down) the stadium. Worse was the "tourist trap" stop to rug shop outside of Osios Loukas. No one on our bus bought anything, it took time away from Delphi - and I would have been much more interested to stop in the actual town itself (which was beautiful to drive through). The historical information imparted on the tour was surficial, and the tour was expensive.
First of all, Delphi is amazing and the views are spectacular, so definetly go visit. However, I do regret taking the guided tour because they seemed to be disorganized (ie you get picked up from your hotel at 7 a.m, but then are asked to wait for another tour bus etc...), also, they offer a choice of taking the tour with or without lunch, the only thing is that, they don't suggest anywhere to go for lunch if you don't take the tour with lunch! so it seems a bit pointless for them to have a "Lunch not included price." The lunch itself was not very good and not worth the 10 Euros they charge. I also felt that we did not have enough time to explore the Archeological site enough, we were given 20 minutes to explore, which is not enough time. When I go back, I will take the local bus to Delphi which costs 11 euros each way and stop in town and get my lunch as opposed to wasting 90 Euros on another tour.
I have all good things to say about CHAT tours. We just came back from a 3 day classical tour with Chat tours and our tour guide was fun and interesting. Very knowledgable. Our bus driver was exceptional too, getting through the skinny streets of all the towns. I recommend them!
This tour was an average tour. Not too boring but not too exciting. They did talk about some pretty interesting stuff, though. I'm not going to tell in this survey because it would ruin it for the people that might be wanting to do this.
