Description of the private tour to Delphi, Meteora, and Thessaloniki

DAY 1: Athens, Arachova, Delphi, Kalambaka, Meteora

Driving from Athens towards Levadia and Arachova, the picturesque village located next to Delphi, at the feet of Mt Parnassus, the first day of the tour will bring you to Delphi, the sanctuary of God Apollo, located just 2 hours approx. away from Athens.


In Delphi, you will visit one of the leading archaeological sites in Greece, known not only for its historical importance but also due to its amazing aura. It is certain that you will get positive energy since the place was not chosen accidentally to house the Temple and Oracle of Apollo.

Here you can visit the Delphi Museum that houses the Naxian Sphinx, the Twin brothers, important findings from the excavations in the area, and of course the Bronze Charioteer, known as Eniochos.

Enjoy a typical Greek lunch in Delphi in a restaurant offering superb views, and then head towards Kalambaka, the town that lies next to a geological and historical phenomenon, Meteora and its monasteries.

Overnight at Kalambaka or Kastraki, by the feet of breathtaking Meteora.

DAY 2: Meteora, Katerini, Thessaloniki
