Delphi Tour Short Description:

Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Delphi on a private tour that takes you deeper into the myths and legends that surround this mysterious complex. Known as the Navel of the World, Delphi was the most important religious center and sanctuary in the ancient Greek World.

During our Percy Jackson Delphi Tour, we’ll reveal who the Oracle was, offer different theories behind the religious rites practised here, and include interactive games and quizzes to keep everyone engaged throughout. We’ll also talk about the connections between the Percy Jackson books and the Oracle at Delphi, explaining the real myths on which the books were based!

What to expect:

Our guide will meet you at your hotel in Athens, and then you will be taken by luxury vehicle to the site at Delphi. During the road trip, our guide will explain the plan for the day, as well as going into some of the history and mythology you’ll need to know to better appreciate your visit.

Arriving at Delphi, you will be guided through both the archaeological site itself (upper and lower), as well as the museum. This tour is based on interaction and fun, and you’ll find our engaging guide presents the site and museum in a way which not only explains what you are seeing, but also fires up the imagination. You’ll easily be able to picture yourself as a pilgrim making their way to Delphi, or even as an athlete taking part in the games here.

With a stop off at a local village for lunch, several other surprise stops, awesome viewing points, and countless photo opportunities, our Percy Jackson Delphi Tour is one you’ll never forget. You’ll feel as though you have been accompanied by a friend who has shown you a hidden side to Delphi, and you’ll come away with a much greater appreciation of ancient Greek society and culture.

Our Percy Jackson experience was superb! We had an outstanding tour guide: not only was she so friendly and easy to get along with, she provided a wealth of information that made the sights just “come alive” for us all. She was especially engaging with our kids, aged 16 and 18. We learned more from her than we ever could have on our own. This trip was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a unique, memorable experience.

We had a lovely tour in Delphi with Greeking.me. Not only was our guide incredibly knowledgeable, but she also came prepared for our 9 year old Percy Jackson fan. Evita did a nice job of letting my son “be the expert” and chiming in with new information along the way. She kept the tour moving so that my son would stay engaged, providing us with lots of in depth information. I highly recommend Greek Mythology Tours!
