A Recent Review of this tour

We booked a total of 3 excursions with Dimitris. He is professional, friendly, and a good driver. His Mercedes van is as described - very clean, excellent AC, and video screens for presentations. We loved this trip to Delphi! The drive through the Greek countryside was beautiful and interesting. We spent about 3 hours in Delphi, touring the ancient site as well as the museum. We also really enjoyed the lunch venue that Dimitris chose (excellent Greek food and a play area for our toddler kids!).
