I loved this tour! The tour guide was good and it was enjoyable to learn the history of Delos.
Our tour guide Effie was exceptional. We had a booking for 7 people and we all enjoyed the tour. Effie was very keen to share a lot of interesting facts about Delos. Delos is an amazing place I am glad I booked this tour. The ferry trip there and back was lovely. Highly recommend.
Elelisa sp? was an awesome, friendly and personable guide. Her descriptions of Delos and its daily life came to life as we walked through the community. She highlighted significant aspects of the excavation and gave suggestions for further exploration on our own including the museum and the temples further up on the hill. Elelisa's depth of knowledge was evident as she explained so much that the time flew and before we were ready, the tour had come to an end. Her English was excellent. We enjoyed our tour and would recommend this guide.
Visiting the sacred island of Delos was honestly the only reason I bothered going to Mykonos! I have an archaeology background, and have been obsessed with Greek mythology and history since I was a very young child, so Delos was THE place for me to see. Delos was all I dreamed of, and more. I had no idea just how many ruins there were on the island. I wanted to lose my return ferry sticker so I could stay with the archaeologists still working there. Our guide was terrific - she had ready answers to all questions, and a good sense of humor. Definitely book this unique experience!
My 3 friends and I recently booked this tour while we were in Mykonos so that we could see a bit of culture, rather than just partying, and thoroughly enjoyed going to Delos. Our tour guide, Efi, I think, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and even made us laugh a lot. She took us through all the main sites of Delos and answered all of our questions. I also thought the duration of this tour was perfect. Be aware that Mykonos and Delos are very windy places, so the boat ride can be an adventure in of itself! The only feedback I have is that it was a bit confusing as to where we showed our Viator vouchers. I ended up calling the tour company to find out where in Mykonos we were supposed to go. Other than that, this tour was great!
We enjoyed our trip to Delos, and the tour operator who picked us up from the hotel to take us to the port was prompt and helped make our trip hassle free. We would definitely recommend a guide for making the whole experience more meaningful. We learned much more this second time by having a guide than by doing it on our own. Well worth it.
amazing trip! tour guide was super knowledgeable and learned a ton about the ancient city. make sure you take the time to climb to the top of hill afterwards for a panoramic view of the island and mykonos.
Excellent side tour from Mykonos that's not to be missed.You don't need to take the round trip hotel pickup if you are staying close to the Old Port or Windmills.It was a short 20 minute walk from my hotel.Highly recommended
This tour was amazing! Tour guide was knowledgeable, accommodating and organized! Highly recommend!!
We booked this tour last minute while on our cruise, and were very glad we did. Mykonos was a beautiful stop on our cruise itinerary with its whitewashed labyrinth of homes and stores, but we are really glad we took this side excursion to this ancient island. After we docked and took a short water taxi ride, we spent the morning touring around Delos with our guide, Efi. She was very knowledgeable and brought life to the ancient ruins of this amazing island for us. We commented a number of times how having an exceptional guide really makes for a fun excursion. We have a number of stories that we continue to reflect back on...Did you know that the Cyclades group of islands in the Aegean sea comes from the word, Circle, which comes from the Greek word 'kyklos' that form around the island of Delos. so many fun parallels from a favorite movie of ours. Highly recommend this very fun and informative excursion.
