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 puts 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 where your tour will come to an end.
Excellent guide, transportation to and from the boat and boat to the island were all on time and very comfortable. Delos is a must see if you are in Mykonos.
The boat ride was super wavy, BUT the tour and site was awesome.
Excellent - one of the highlights of our trip. Our guide Marilou or something like that sorry! was really incredible. Intelligent, passionate and funny - she made the ruins come alive with both history and anecdotes, even weaving in current politics and religion. Her background as an archaeologist really shined. Absolutely loved the tour, especially because of our tour guide. Well worth the half day trip to lean of the incredible history. Delos can be very hot, so be prepared with water and hats and sunscreen. Advise taking the larger ferry if the seas are stormy. The smaller ferry on the way back was akin to Mr. Toad's Wild Ride in very windy and choppy seas - a bit scary at times crossing the channel as the the tiny ship was tossed, and it didn't help that there was only one life preserver on board for the captain???!!. I suppose this must be the Greek way, but it was a little unnerving. Made it back safe, and have a story to tell : Notwithstanding, would still recommend. The guide was excellent.
Excellent tour guide, beautiful place. Have to see this when in Mykonos.
Splendid tour with a first rate leader.
Aside from presenting well and knowing a great amount, she was tremendously helpful to me.
I have various medical problems including balance, and she kept me up and moving. Her name is something like Marilou and she is first rate. We also enjoyed the museum greatlyl
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.
