I love our guide. She did not sugar coat things and was up front to everyone. Very knowledgeable archeologists. I forgot her name now but she was great short black hair . Also please make sure you wear a hat and sun screen. Very sunning and hot. Oh and also take water with you. Theres only a little caffè on the small island and you wont go there until after the tour is done.kds loved !! Amazing to be at a place what used to be the manhattan of today.
This was a great tour...just be sure to bring a hat because it is sunny and hot.
I cannot recommend this tour enough. For anyone who is interested in Greek mythology or Ancient Greek civilisation, you must visit Delos - the birthplace of the twin gods: Apollo and Artemis. A shuttle van promptly picked us up at 9.15am from our apartment and then drove us to the port to meet other groups on route to Delos. The large boat had a bar area downstairs, while the top had an open area for people to sit and take in the beautiful sea view. The waves were choppy, but my friend who usually suffers from seasickness was absolutely fine. We arrived shortly after a 20-25 minute boat ride at Delos where our tour guide, Vasiliki, offered us an amazing history and mythology class on the origins of Delos. She also requested we ask her as many questions, about the island and its history, as possible. She was friendly and informative. Obviously, you can go to Delos without a tour guide, but it is much better to have someone like Vasiliki to guide you, so they can explain and point out all the important relics and statues, you need to know about. In our group, there were no more than 12 people, which was a good enough size. After a thoroughly productive morning, we were back in our apartment by 2 pm, which included a free drive back to our apartment. We embraced the culture, history and took many photographs. My advice is to bring your own bottle of water as the air is dry and bring your own lunch and snacks to eat on the boat ride going back to the port. Also, wear lots of sun cream and cover your body, with a light cardigan or jacket, because your skin may burn. Id say the entire experience was roughly 4-5 hours long, so theres enough time for you to carry on enjoying the rest of your day, back in Mykonos Town.
My partner and I absolutely loved this tour! It is so amazing how some of the structures still stand after nearly 2500 years ago! Aria, our guide for the Delos Tour was very informative and friendly. We absolutely recommend doing this tour when you are in Mykonos.
Highlight of the tip! This is a DO NOT MISS. Easy walking, picture taking bonanza, heaped in history.
This tour is a must! Our boat ride was rocky but so worth it! Delos is phenomenal. Our tour guide was amazing and so knowledgeable.
This was the perfect half day tour to Delos. It was just what we needed, transportation from our hotel to the boat, an excellent tour guide who pointed out the highlights of Delos and a little free time at the end. You must visit Delia if in Mykonos and this is a great way to experience this archeological site!
About a thirty minute boat ride from Mykonos, the island of Delos is a must see if you are at all interested in the ancient world. One of the better preserved archeological sites in Greece, it put me in mind of the ruins at Delphi. The island is uninhabited except by a few guards and archeologists. With no modern construction in site, it's quite an evocative and special place. Our guide was an archeologist whose knowledge was voluminous and whose presentation was interesting and accessible to the layman. If you're visiting Mykonos, take a break from the beaches and the party life and book this excursion. You won't regret it.
Other reviews of this trip were key in helping me decide to take this tour and I'm glad I did. As others have indicated the guide for this trip is an archeologist and that made the trip so much more interesting as she was able to provide great details and stories of how life was back during the time Delos was active.
I also appreciated the small group size. The boat leaving Mykonos was one of the smaller wooden types - very beautiful and could only hold a small number of people maybe 15 plus or so. When you see the Orca and similar at the Delos dock you will be grateful you took this tour.
I couldn't believe that I was going to enjoy this tour as much as I did,it was a great tour and so was the Greek lunch at
a Greek house awesome lunch
