Great tour. Guide was very knowledgable and the ruins were incredible to see. Transport to and from Delos was very easy

This tour is a must if you are staying in Mykonos for more than one day. It gives one an insight on what sacred Delos meant for the ancient Greeks. This tour takes half a day from your itinerary so plan accordingly.

Great guide, very knowledgable and fun to listen to. It was a very hot day but we were glad we took the time to take this tour. Thank you

This Tour of Delos was everything I had hoped for and more! After meeting up with all of our tour members (a small group) at Mykonos Old Port, we headed out on the Ferry to Delos. Our Guide, VASO, was Outstanding in her passion, knowledge, and patience with us on our tour. The site far exceeded anything I had seen in pictures, and our Guide, Vaso, made it truly memorable!

I was very glad to have a tour guide, because Delos' ruins are pretty fragmentary and I wouldn't have appreciated them anywhere near as much with the explanations provided. Our guide was actually a former archaeologist at Delos, so her information was really spot on. There was a bit of a mix-up about meeting our boat, but once that was straightened out things went very smoothly. Definitely bring snacks, water, and a big sun hat!

This tour started off badly and only continued from there. We arrived to the meeting spot ten minutes early to make sure we were in the right spot. We found some other travelers who would be on our tour so knew we were where we should be. 20 minutes later, the tour guide finally showed up but never introduced herself, apologized for being late, etc. My husband just noticed that a woman with a clipboard was talking to some of the people we had met so went and checked us in. She never actually greeted me or the rest of the people in our family and only barked at my husband that she needed the rest of the people to come get a sticker I don't even think made eye contact with me, just checked my name off a list as she handed me my tour sticker. Then when it was time to go, she just took off towards the transfer boat, never made any announcement or explained how things would go and I think just expected everyone to follow her. The actual boat ride over to Delos was uneventful. When we arrived to the island, she got our tickets and led us the museum where we met the guide who took us around the site. The tour group was large, around 30 people, and much too large in my opinion to hear our guide unless we stayed very close to him which was difficult to do given the size of our group. It was also a very windy day so very difficult to hear much of anything unless we were literally standing right next to him. The information provided was interesting- at least what I was able to hear. I happened to see many other tour groups, many that had the audio headsets. This is a much preferred way to have a guided tour around Delos or perhaps a private tour. Our tour was just too big, and we couldn't hear half of what the guide said. My other big disappointment with this tour was the guide lost a member of our group midway through the tour- he told her to meet at the bottom when she asked where to go when in fact we all met at the top. She waited around for the group to join us, only for our tour group to move on to another part of the site. The woman who officially ran the tour day the woman we met in the am prior to the boat ride could have done a much better job of keeping the group together and make sure we didnt lose anyone. She mainly was just walking around, taking pictures and seemed more interested in her own experience instead of ensuring the enjoyment of the people who had paid for the tour. Also reiterates the point that the tour group was just too large. If they are losing people midway, there are too many people. Lastly, they said the transfer boat back to Mykonos would leave at 130 and to make sure we were back on the boat by 125. We wound up jogging to make sure we got on the boat in time and had no time to tour the site on our own. Overall I would say Delos is worth a visit but do NOT use this tour company. Use one that does smaller groups and uses the audio headsets.

We booked this tour through Viator and the check-in started out bad. When I asked our tour guide Alexia Why 28 people in our group? She replied: Oh, that's not our maximum number at all. It'll be fine. It was not! We did not have any audio we were in Europe for 5 weeks, taking other tours with audio and speakers and her English accent and vocabulary were not the best. She may have been well informed but we couldn't hear her. What a waste of our time and money! The only benefit was our personal time in the museum where we could read/study everything on our own. We've used Viator a lot in the past with good results. It's unfortunate that they could not make good on this situation.

DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR!!! This is a transfer company, not the actual tour agency! They will only pick you up and book the tour in your name! You can get the real tour, for 50 euros, at the old port! The guy that picked me up was totally clueless, didnt even knew how to redeem the voucher he had for me. The tour of Delos was great, nice place, nice guide, but either book another tour here or do it directly at the port!

Very good tour, we did not get the wooden boat transfer but rather the large boat runs from old port few times a day. We ended up in a small group of 6 and our guide was knowledgeable.
