What you'll do

We will start from the center of Athens and take about 2 hours to reach the Delphi oracle. On our way, we will pass important points of interest: Battlefield of Plataea and Marathon, the place where Oedipus met and killed his father, according to legend and great ancient cities such as Thebes and Thespies. After our visit to the archaeological site of Delphi and the museum, we will eat at an amazing restaurant in the village of Delphi, overlooking the Delphi valley and their ancient harbor.
Afterwards we will head higher up Mount Parnassos (1350 meters) and pass through beautiful mountain peaks. There is the Korikeion Andron, the Pan Cave and the first oracle in the area. Going down the other side of the mountain, we will visit the ancient city of Lilia, where the source of the river Kifissos (one of the two rivers of ancient Athens) is located. There are also 2 ancient temples (Apollo and Artemis), and there are also strange signs of the Knight Templars.
Our final destination will be the battlefield of the 300 Spartans and King Leonidas against the Persians. The place that became one of the most important battles in World History.

I grew up in a small town on Mount Parnassos. From a young age, I learned to love its history and myths. I work, study and discuss all of this throughout my life. Unbelievably, many historical things have happened here. I consider myself lucky to have lived in such an important and beautiful area.
I love History and Mythology and read nonstop. I enjoy talking to other people about history, mythology, philosophy, and hearing different points of view. Concepts like "fate", "prophecy and anointing", "soul", "myths and reality" are my favorites!
Visiting ancient ruins and standing in ancient temples is something unique to me. It's something that fills my soul with emotions!

Where you'll be

What we will do will be something completely different from a visit to the Delphi oracle. Parnassos is not just Delphi. There are also many ruined ancient cities and temples and the site of Dionysus's greatest celebration. The battlefield of the 300 Spartans is just a monument. But the path we take and the feeling we will have when we find ourselves on the hill where the Spartans died will be something unique.

I had a fantastic day with Pan from Easy Experiences. I loved that I was not rushed and could enjoy the places on the tour at my own pace rather than being rushed by a guide who just wants to get the day done. Delphi - what an amazing place; walking in the footsteps of some of history's most significant characters, the center of the universe according to the ancient Greeks. I can't recommend this enough to people. Pan has a deep love of Greek history, myth and philosophy which is he is always willing to freely share. Anyone who has an interest in these subjects or simply wants to learn more about Greece, its long history, and the history of western civilisation is strongly recommended to jump on board and get to Delphi with Pan. You won't regret it!!!

How can I sum up this amazing experience? Pan and Tassos were excellent hosts and guides. They took us to a remarkable number of breathtaking and interesting spots around the Parnassos mountains. They were passionate and very knowledgeable about a wide range of topics in Greek mythology, history, culture, sociology and arts. What made it special was that it was like being shown around by friends and family rather than by guides. Hope to go on another tour soon!

Amazing tour from start to finish! It was a long day that started around 8:30am and finished around 9:00pm but it was well worth it! I’m not a big Greek mythology fan but this tour was still amazing. The places you visit are absolutely stunning and the landmarks are remarkable. Dimitrios was a wealth of knowledge and very passionate about every thing he taught us. Deff recommend

It was a truly wonderful day. A full day full of captivating stories and details we’d have been hard pressed to find elsewhere. The visit to Delphi itself was of course superb and the site remarkably free of crowds but we didn’t just do Delphi. After lunch at a lovely taverna in Delphi village with a stunning view over the valley, Dimitrios took us via his village on Parnassus to a hidden archaeological gem and then on to Thermopylae where we smelled the sulphurous healing springs (and got bitten by ravenous mosquitoes!) to the battle ground itself and monuments to the fallen Spartans and Thespians. He is a valuable guide in whom you can feel totally at ease and learn a lot from. Thank you Dimitrios!!!

Our day with Dimitrios was magical. I'm still awestruck that we fit so many things into one day. Dimitrios was extra attentive and aware of our needs and just the perfect, perfect host. His passion for history is infectious and his storytelling really makes a difference to how you view the places you will go on this trip. There is the mythological side and the reality side and everything he discusses has balance between the two. All three of us who spent the day with Dimitrios feel the same - it was the best decision we made for our trip to Athens.
