What You Can Expect
Cruise into the harbor, board your coach, and travel to the main excavation site where a staggering collection of relics awaits. On a walking tour with your guide, make your way around the agora, the ancient market place where merchants from neighboring countries would meet. Stroll past the Sacred Lake, pose for photos by the Terrace of the Lions — one of the island’s best-known sights — and gaze in awe at the ruined grandeur of Delos’ ancient theater.
See old living quarters, such as the House of Dionysus, that hint at the daily lives of islanders in bygone days, and hear tidbits of enthralling Ancient Greek history that put all the sights into historical context. After viewing the Temple of Isis, a sculpture of an Egyptian goddess and various Roman water cisterns, head inside the Archeological Museum of Delos to browse an array of mosaics, statues and other artifacts found during excavations on the island.
After your walking tour finishes, hop back inside your minibus and return to the port to catch your ferry back to Mykonos. Say your goodbyes to your guide after disembarking, or finish your half-day tour with a hotel drop-off.
The half-day guided tour to Delos was wonderful.
This was a wonderful half day trip. Bad sttuff first: We were picked up at our hotel though the driver was nearly 30mins late picking us up, and dropped off at the port where we then had to find our own way to the proper dock and boat about a 15min walk around the harbour. Good part: Delos was beautiful and it was mindblowing being in the midst of an entire city of ruins. You could almost imagine what it would have been like back in its heyday. I wish we could have had more time to explore the island but the tour guide was very knowledgeable and welcoming and provided us with a lot of good information regarding the historical significance of Delos and what life may have been like back then.
Absolutely fantastic trip, must see, Our tour guide was amazing. She was friendly, caring and considered the different age groups in the tour and paced it appropriately. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Very interesting guided cruise and walkiing tour of Delos, birthplace of the Gods! The trek to the highest point at Delos takes about 45 mins. Might be a little bit of a challenge for older people.
Very very interesting. Tons of time too look around and a great tour guide.
We got the hotel pickup and drop off but when we got back to the port there was no one there and the guy on the phone wasn't very helpful. Seemed a little disorganized from that standpoint. We ended up walking into mykonos town, having lunch and taking the bus to the hotel.
This is a must see for anyone visiting Greece. the Island of Delos was a city of 25,000 people with very advanced culture. The tour that I was on had 14 people with an excellent guide named Irina. However, the day before she had 50 people in her group. You have to get yourself to the dock and trade your voucher in for a ticket to the ferry. There is no shade so be sure to wear a hat and use sunscreen. Also take a bottle of water with you.
This tour was amazing!
Very good tour!!
Easy and informative. Our guide Irine had a rough start but was very good after that. Organization was a bit poor.
The ferry ride to and from Delos was as expected. The tour guide was fabulous. My only critique was with the additional service I purchased hotel pick up and drop off. The bus was prompt at the hotel, but dropped us off very far from the ferry location, and the driver was unable to tell us where to get the ferry and how the process worked checking in at the kiosk, etc. We had a person in our party that has walking challenges, and had we known that the hotel pick up / drop off was as inconvenient was it was, I would not have purchased it for an additional fee.
