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.
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!
