We really enjoyed this trip. Our tour guide was friendly and loved questions. The only confusion was when the tour company driver brought us to the parking lot at the ferry dock and didn't have great directions for where to go next. We found our way to the kiosk but would have preferred to have been shown where to go.
Our tour guide was very informative and the sites were just incredible. The boat ride from mykonos port was lovely.
The instructions from Viator for the meeting point is not clear and confusing so it created lots of unnecessary anxiety and wasted time how to meet up with the tour guide. The local guide who conducted our tour was very informative and met our expectation. Delos is a wonderful site to visit.
If you are in Mykonos, I highly recommend this tour. The ferry leaves from the old port in Mykonos, and then when you arrive at Delos you find your tour guide. You are given a sticker for the tour group as well as the ferry tickets when you check in with your voucher at the port. Our licensed tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable, and we learned a lot. This archaeological site is amazing to view up close. Make sure to bring water with you. Also, this tour can be very difficult for those walking with canes as there are uneven pathways and steps throughout the walking tour. After the guided tour, you have time to explore the museum and site before returning to the afternoon ferry, if you take the morning ferry to the island. Everyone except for authorized workers on the island must depart Delos by the last ferry leaving the island for the day.
It was generally a good tour as everything was planned properly. The guide was okay, but not very engaging. Most likely this is the weakness of going in a big group tour.
DO NOT BOOK WITH MTM! They didn't show up! Not answering emails and neither to the phone. We were helped by the main local company that runs the Delos tours which over the unfullfilled service. The site was spectacular and the guide Maria was great, but in figuring things out we lost 2 hours that would have make it a perfect experience.
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.
