Take a guided tour of the Temple of Apollo and the ruins on the slopes of Mt. Parnassus, and learn about the site’s history and function. Following a lunch break, continue to Kalambaka and, after an evening at leisure and overnight at a local hotel, spend the next morning exploring UNESCO-listed Meteora, home to six medieval monasteries built on high rock pinnacles.

We started on a bus with a group of people doing just the one day Delphi tour. After touring the Delphi area, which was very interesting, we joined a group who was on a four day tour to go on to Meteora. Both sites were amazingly beautiful and interesting— well worth the long travel time. It was disappointing to have a bus that was not quite as nice and roomy on this two day trip compared to the bus we had on our one day trip to Mycenae and Epidaurus earlier in the week. The provided meals were just ok—nothing special. We chose to not eat at the lunch spots that we stopped at (which were not included in the price). They were large, heavy lunches, and we preferred to get a walk in and have a quick bite at a cafe. Helen, Joy, and George the driver were all wonderful and helped make the trip a highlight of our vacation. We would recommend this tour!

I was a bit worried because of few bad reviews but it turned out to be a very good tours agency.
Despite the other comments, my bus was very comfy with legroom and had a fully working air conditioning.
The tour was quite organized and the staff was very helpful and polite, apart from the first driver that was a bit grumpy.
The places we stopped along the way were ok with good food at reasonable prices.
I have done the 2 days tour (Delphi and Meteora). We stayed at Hotel Amalia. It stated it as a 4 star hotel but I think the Greek standards are a little low. I would give 2-3 stars. Despite that, there were all the facilities and services you expect. The swimming pool is nice but there is little time to enjoy it. We arrive at around 7:45pm but the swimming pool closed at 8:30pm. The beds were firm and the sheets clean. The dinner and breakfast were included in the price. It was a buffet service and the food was very good with great variety. One thing to bear in mind is that they divide the dinner room to the tour group so if you seat in a random table the head waiter gets upset and rude.
As others have said before, when you are at Delphi don't wait until the guide finish the explanation. Just start to go to the stadium at the top otherwise you may not have enough time to see all the attractions and the museum. It was a quite long steep walk.
The guides were very good and knowledgeable and speak English.
We can take your luggage with you so you don't need a luggage storage or to pay another hotel while on tour.
Bear in mind that if you are doing Meteora, men need to wear trousers and women need to wear long skirt. If you don't have a long skirt, they will provide some at the entrance of the monastery. The shoulder must also be covered.
I would recommend this tour company if you want to make most of Greece in a short schedule.

1. I am glad I went. Delphi was interesting, Meteora was spectacular, stunning.
2. The guides worked hard to do their job.The driver was provided a safe ride
3. The bus was very uncomfortable, too small, crammed, no space for day packs except at your feet and inadequate leg room. Awful for so many hours on the bus!!!
4. The Amelia Hotel was nice, the rooms comfortable.
5. The vegetarian dinner was NOT good. It was a plate full of boiled cauliflower, broccoli and plain rice. No protein. No seasoning. I was sorry that I prepaid for dinner!

We enjoyed our trip to Delphi and Meteora. Our guides and drivers were excellent and professional. Lot's of interesting information and places to visit. One but important disadvantage of this trip was accomodation for the night: we were dropped at 18:00 at Amalia hotel which was located in the middle of nowhere. The hotel needs renovation badly but according to taxes they charged us in the morning (3 euro) it considered to be 5 stars. Nobody explained to us what we could do during our free time. We tried to walk to the village but it was 6 km from hotel without side walk and no transportation so we gave up. Dinner was at 8 pm and was good but did not compensate our wasted evening. We talked to other tourists in our bus next morning who bought that trip from another company not CHAT tours. They were placed in the hotels in the village and enjoyed their evening walking and shopping around. Our advice: don't buy this tour from CHAT tours because they don't care about clients. They care to fill an empty hotel and save their money probably. We think this way because it was absolutely unreasonable to place us so far from everything - location is very important for tourists and we were very unhappy during that evening and we believe we were not alone with those feelings.

The timing and the places chosen to visit were in accordance to my expectations, very well organized tour.
The drivers were excellent!
The first part to Delphi was a little disappointing concerning the guide and the information given, I hate the fact that they did french+English because of one person (who was sleeping all the way).
The second part to Meteora was worth it, the guide was more passionate about her job, the hotel, the food, the places... all good.

I started out with a group of 1-day Delphi trip. After visiting Delphi, the company arranged me to join another group of people who were on their 5-day trip package. Meteora is magnificent. Additionally, I met a few friendly and interesting people during the tour and we went on later to visit acropolis together. Very worthwhile!

We did the overnight to Dephi and the monasteries (Meteora). What they DON'T tell u is that u spend a lot of time (12 hours+) on a bus over 2 days. Our guide for Delphi was so terrible we walked on(could not understand her n she kept rambling on & on) to see it on our own n therefor got to see all of it while the people who stuck with her did not. The monasteries were wonderful but u r on a bus for endless hours. I would recommend for a little more $ use Georges Taxi with private driver Kostas. You will cut hours off the drive and it will be well worth the extra $ to be flexible in what u do.

We wanted to see Delphi and Meteora and this seemed a good way of doing both. We booked through Viator which is a subsidiary of Tripadvisor. Chat Tour provided the tour.
We met the bus as arranged at a hotel near the centre of Athens. The bus was 3/4 full, clean and modern.
Just know on this trip you are sitting for a long time. Rest stops were provided regularly and our guide kept us advised of our timetable frequently.
First stop was Delphi, Our guide took us around for about 30 mins and gave us a quick overview of the site and then we were on our own for 45 mins. Impossible to do both the site and the museum on this trip which was a real shame.
After Delphi we stopped at Thermopylae very briefly to see the place the Spartan held off against the Persians then onto Kalambaka to overnight. Hotel was old but comfortable, bar VERY smoky! The tour provided a buffet dinner and breakfast which were both abundant, fresh, local and very good quality.
First day lunch stop outside of Delphi was lovely, economical and local. Second lunch stop outside of Meteora was horrible, over priced buffet with food just being shoved at you and no idea what you were being charged for. Be warned we ended up spending >50€
Back on the bus to Meteora. A rainy day but the area was spectacular. Never seen anything like it and so glad we visited!
Then back to Athens, 5 hours away.
A few comments/suggestions to the tour company. Try and include time to go to the museum in the Delphi stop.
Please let your female guests know that they are required to wear skirts at Meteora, apron style skirts were provided at the monasteries but a bit grubby.
I know the tour guide can’t keep talking for hours on end but maybe a pretaped narrative about the area, myths, history could be played, if you don’t want to listen put your ear buds in.
Our tour guide was nice but didn’t make any attempt to get to know her passengers and I think could have done a better job at “hosting” the group. Also she was very programmed and her explanations very quick at the sites.
She occupied one of the very coveted front seats when she could have sat in of the two seats by the driver and door, letting other guests have a great view.
Yes I would recommend this tour, you get what you pay for of course. Let’s see if Chat tours take any advice.

While I've had a good experience with chat tours in the past this one left much to be desired. The attractions are world class and worth a visit, Meteora in particular is stunning. However, the tour suffered from many problems.

After being picked up we were driven around athens for over an hour picking up groups going on other tours. At the end of this hour we reached a point literally 10 minutes walk from where we were picked up.

After finally leaving Athens 90 minutes after being picked up (again, 10 minutes walk from our pickup point) we arrived at Delphi for our '90 minute guided tour' only to be told we would have less than an hour and that only the first 20 minutes would be guided.

After being rushed through Delphi we were merged with another group and herded into a new bus. The new bus was completely inadequate, every seat was occupied and leg room was non-existent. Most of us were squished up against a stranger with our knees against our chest. I've been on buses throughout the Balkans but never have I had as little leg space or personal space as this. It was the most uncomfortable trip of my life. To make matters worse the aircon could not be manually controlled and was stifling in such a full bus.

I should also note that every lunch stop was made at a pricey tourist trap, it was dissapointing to walk into town and see dozens of charming local cafes empty while our group was funnelled into out of the way overpriced buffets.

Finally, after a night in an adequate hotel we experienced two monasteries before being crammed back into the sardine can for the long trip home. Meteora was stunning but this tour is not the way to enjoy it. The guide was very long winded and I feel like we could have seen more with concise, interesting commentary.

My reccomendation is to save 50% and book everything yourself. A bus to delphi and meteora, accomodation, entrance fees and monastery tour costs far less than the package tour and would have been much more comfortable with hours of extra sightseeing time and more enjoyable food. Avoid at all costs.

The sites of Meteora and Delphi are amazing. The tour is a bit like a cattle drive though. That probably can’t be helped, but still! We had two guides changing in Delphi. The first was quite pleasant but her knowledge was dodgy. The second was not much chop at all. Her knowledge was better but she talked way too much, repeating the same information three or four times. This left very little time to look around these marvellous attractions. The guide even got a bit aggressive because we weren’t asking her questions (everyone just wanted her to stop talking). The hotel at Kalambaka was OK. The evening meal was poor, average food raced through. The breakfast was better and the rooms average, though spacious and comfortable. I would recommend the tour for the attractions though and don’t see how else to go unless travelling independently.
