Well worth it. Delos has so much history and is a pleasant 30 minute ferry ride from Mukonos. Have comfortable hiking shoes. No shop on island that we could see so worth ensuring you bring some water with u

Prepare to queue!

The queues in Mykonos for the boat are mental! Despite buying the tickets online you still need to queue and exchange your ticket for the boat and island ticket which is not ideal in hot weather with no shade! The ferry ride over is beautiful as is the island itself and the tour guide was very knowledgeable.

Dear customer, Thank you of taking of your time to review Delos Tour and help us to improve our services. We regret to hear your disappointment with the check in, but your voucher ia only a booking and in Greece, it has to be replaced with instant boat tickets, Upon cruise arrival it happens to see queues at the boat tickets, but you save this time with quick check in at Delos entrance. Warm Regards, Delos Tours Team

Busy place

Enjoyed our trip to Delos but it was not as good as the other tours we took in Greece, primarily due to large group format and our initial inability to find our guide. We were told to look for a guide holding a #2 sign, but she was holding up a blue flag instead. Another lady at the gate was handing out tickets, so we were able to get in, but then we had to race from group to group looking for the other #2s. We missed the first part of the tour. For future travellers, suggest the following: 1. Book a small group tour (if they exist). What we could hear from our guide was very interesting, but she often started her talk before the entire group arrived. 2. Arrive in Mykonos town in time to walk from bus or taxi to the ferry office which is on a point around the bay in Mykonos town. You'll probably need at least 15 minutes. Turn in your receipt for tickets at the ferry office. 4. Be prepared for choppy seas if it is windy.

Very educational Tour

The ruins are about 4500 years old and one of the most important mythological, historical and archeological sites in Greece. If you're even remotely interested in history this place is phenomenal. It’s a very tranquil place and the quiet is somewhat eerie but it has a long and interesting history as the centre of the Cyclades and as the birthplace of Apollo and his twin Artemis. The site is quite extensive and can be very hot so bring water, food, sunscreen, a hat and good walking shoes. I would recommend choosing a knowledgeable guide who can help explain the significance of the ruins you are seeing and explain the fascinating history of the people of the island this will enhance your experience and add to the appreciation of the site. The Ferry ride, from Mykonos is a little over half an hour each way. I would suggest arriving early as the site is not as busy and it’s a lot cooler than the afternoon. I was on a guided tour and on arrival at the island we were segregated into groups depending on the language of the group. There is currently an art installation throughout the site by Antony Gormley, so you will see lots of metallic figures dotted around the place. I can’t remember our guides name but she was very engaging and knowledgeable(30th July 2019(English group)). There were lots to see and a lot of information to digest and I found a bit of research beforehand a great help. The Tour ends at the “Terrace of the Lions” and is what normally draws people to the island but there is so much more here. You then get an hour to yourself to explore on your own before the boat leaves. There is a small Archeological Museum located on the island which is interesting and contains the original lions and various artifacts of the History of the island. The signage was in French and Greek as it is excavated by the French Archaeological School but it gives you as idea of how amazing the island must have been. Also, they were giving out free bottles of water which was a bonus. If you still have the time and inclination, you could climb to the top of Mt. Kynthos (Greek mythology has it that Zeus sat here and watched Leto giving birth of his twin children, Apollo and Artemetis). You get a fabulous view along with 2 more temples along the way. Delos is a wonder to see and so rich in History. I thoroughly recommended a visit.

It is well organized, and the guide is very knowledgeable. After her presentation, we still had a lot of time to explore the island on foot. In the peak season, it is possible to explore the island with long hours without missing the boat back to Mykonos.

We would highly recommend this tour to Delos. The ruins are extensive with many recognisable features still remaining. This truly is a magical place We were a little unsure about the meeting point but just presented our viator voucher at the ticket office at the end of the pier where we were given boat tickets and allocated a tour guide.

We did the Delos Tour through Delos Travel and we are so glad we did. This half day trip to Delos is all we needed to enjoy the mythological and historical civilization of the island. The remnants at the site are precious and there are still discoveries to be made. Our tour guide is an experienced Archaeologist who worked at the site in the 80s and currently lives in Delos. Her experience and knowledge was palpable when speaking to us. We highly recommend this tour.

Not enough time and repetitive information
elaineproudfoot

If you are serious about seeing Delos, do not take a 2 hour excursion. It just can not be done. We were rushed through the site, and ended up leaving the tour guide. As with most tours, if you have been on a previous tour in Greece, the information is repeated. How many times can you be told about the history of Greek theatre? If you don't do your research before you go, then it is okay I guess, but anyone with basic knowledge of Greece does not need to hear it on every tour. Also, the tour companies need to be buying the entrance tickets in advance not wasting time at the site. Delos is amazing, and needs to be viewed slowly to take it all in. Water is available free at the museum, contrary to what we were told. But, absolutely no shade there.
