Overview

The ancient Greeks saw Delphi as the center of the world, a city founded by Zeus after he released one eagle at the world’s Eastern end and one at the Western, both finding their way to this point – on the fertile, green slopes of Mount Parnassos.

Surrounded by high peaks, with a valley of olive trees below it, this was one of the most vital religious centers in the ancient world, home to the famous oracle who could whisper words of the future to you.

Our Athens to Delphi private tour will transport you to this ancient space, allowing you to explore the ruins of Delphi itself and the Delphi Archaeological Museum, where you will see artifacts from the site and learn more of the lives that were lived here, over two thousand years ago.

  • Convenient and comfy airconditioned vehicle
  • Get the unique experience of a hassle-free private tour
  • Convenient hotel pickup and drop-off, from your Athens hotel / apartment, is included

Itinerary

Itenirary
Athens
The start of this Athens full-day private tour to Delphi will be just as scenic as that taken by Zeus’ two eagles but of course more direct (and with the added luxuries of comfortable seating and air-conditioning) as we pick you up from your accommodation in Athens and begin our journey up into the mountains.
Itenirary
Delphi
It is a two-hour drive to Delphi, ‘the navel of the world’. In Classical times, people would travel here from all over Greece to visit the oracle of the sun God, Apollo. Your private tour will include the time to explore this temple complex, the holiest place in ancient Greece.
Itenirary
Delphi Archaeological Museum
After seeing Delphi first-hand, you will have the opportunity to explore the lives of the people that visited it thousands of years ago. Situated next to the ancient temple, the Delphi Archaeological Museum features marble sculptures, painted ceramics, and other offerings that have been discovered over time.
Itenirary
Arachova
Following this, your private transport will take you to Arachova. This is an old and characterful town, full of walnut trees and cobbled streets that wind along the mountainside.
We will stop here for some lunch before traveling back to Athens and rounding off the tour by taking you back to your accommodation.

Don't miss it!

I was traveling with my family, and we wanted to see the sites. We were tired of the touristy stuff, so we decided to take a private tour. CityCab was recommended to us by a friend who had taken their tours before. We couldn't have been happier with our experience! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and gave us a great overview of the history of Delphi. She also provided us with some historical context for each site that we visited, which made it feel like we were learning as much about ourselves as we were about ancient Greece. The comfort vehicle and air conditioning were really appreciated because it was hot out! If you're looking for an authentic experience in Greece, this is definitely the way to go!

Great dat trip

I booked this tour with my friends and I was really happy with it. The car was comfortable and the driver was really nice and made us feel safe. The price is good for what you get, and there are plenty of stops along the way that are worth seeing. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see Delphi in all its glory!

Beautiful

The Delphi Day Trip from Athens was very enjoyable. The car was comfortable, the trip easy, and our driver was excellent. He organised and paced the day very well, which added to the relaxed nature of a private tour. I recommend this tour highly to anyone who wants to visit Delphi.

Great Day Trip

The trip to Delphi was a wonderful experience. The views from the site were breathtaking, and I felt myself getting lost in the architecture and the legend of Apollo. The tour guide was great about making sure that we had plenty of time to take pictures and explore the area before we left, so that we could see everything, too. I feel like I got my money's worth just based on the amazing views alone.
