Traveler Reviews

Reviewed by: Peter J, June 2016

We were shunted between 3 different tours. 3 different guides in the first 24 hours. More time driving around Athens picking people up than at Delphi. Convenient for subsidiary companies at the expense of the tourist. My advice, book directly with a company and not with Viator.
