Unfortunate refund policy.
Michelle_M, Apr 2024
We were booked to Delos and unfortunately had a last minute injury at the port. We asked if we could get a refund but we’re denied. Very disappointing.
Amazing a must do tour. I highly recommend it
Neeru_F, Apr 2024
I forget the tour guide’s name. She was excellent and super knowledgeable. She gave the whole history. We saw beautiful Delis as it was in the past. It is a must do tour.
amazing island
Celina_E, Apr 2024
Delos is an amazing island to visit. Do not miss it. Do bring some water as there was none to drink on the island.
History and fun
Theresa_V, Apr 2024
Wonderful guide at a remarkable historic site. Truly remarkable! Tour gives a wealthy of historical history and myth.
Absolutely fantastic. Irene the best tour guide I've ever had.
G_C, Dec 2023
So worth the money. Irene (I believe that was her name, it was a while ago) was a queen who deserves to be praised. So knowledgeable and truly passionate about the subject matter. I can't say enough good things about her. Her storytelling is excellent and she did a fantastic job managing a large group in the heat. 10 stars for Irene—she is the best tour guide I've ever had, and I've had many.
Great tour we enjoyed it
suzanne_w, Nov 2023

Delos
Mark_k, Nov 2023
Great tour guide, our wireless device worked well to hear throughout most of the ruins. Time was sufficient on the island.
do not recommend!
Sydney_B, Nov 2023
leaving and going out on our own was the best part of the trip. we didn’t make it through the tour, the guide was rambling the whole time and we didn’t feel like we were learning or exploring at all. we left halfway through and had a much better time on our own. unfortunately, we do not recommend this tour. it felt like a waste of money
Enjoyable and Informative
Peter_P, Oct 2023
A very informative and enjoyable insight into Delos. The guide was very knowledgeable and enjoyable. The sites were magnificent. I would recommend this tour to everyone interested in Ancient Greek history and mythology.
Half-Day Tour to Sacred Land of the Gods
Tiara_L, Oct 2023
The Delos tour is one of the most interesting tours I’ve ever been on. You can’t help but feel the ancient spirit of the gods and the people who roamed the town as the guide educates you about the land, the monuments, and the people. There’s so much to see, it’s impossible to catch it all in one day! I’m definitely going to come back for a second your but self guided so I can look and learn about the parts we missed.
Very informative
Shirin_E, Oct 2023
The guide was good, but the ear phones (one piece) were not very good, they kept falling out of our ears, and stopped working at a short distance from the guide. Prefer using my own earphones with the box provided by the guide.
Great Experience
Thomas_T, Oct 2023
Tour guide was super knowledgeable and entertaining. An amazing experience and a must see. Nothing more to say.
Don’t miss it!
Bruce_H, Oct 2023
I had been to Delos many years ago and enjoyed it immensely, though this time we had a guided tour. Our guide was a wonderful woman named Irenee, who was just cut out for the position. Patient, knowledgeable and positively charming; she made sure that everyone was safe and fully included in the experience. The whole island is a museum, so chock full of history and well worth the trip. Wear your most comfortable footwear for walking and don’t forget your hat or umbrella and sunblock. Shade is at a premium.
Nice tour
Karine_M, Oct 2023
We liked everything, but we would like to spend more free time. We want to explore on your own more.
10/10- Amazing experience!
Christina_K, Oct 2023
Absolutely amazing! This was our best day yet! We absolutely loved this tour and these guides. They were very knowledgeable on the local history and the vegetation on Mykonos. We had a chance to swim and snorkel which was a definite highlight. We saw sea urchins and so many fish! They even let us borrow towels and windbreakers, because we came unprepared! They provided us with a large bottle of water, a small snack and underwater photos from snorkeling, Overall 10/10, so much fun!
Great Delos tour.
Claire_C, Oct 2023
There was someone to meet us as we disembarked from the cruise ship. They provided transportation to the boat. It was not clear where you transferred your voucher into a ticket, but we figured it out. The boat ride over was harrowing, but that was due to the very high winds. The tour guide, Roxanne, who met us and guided us around Delos was very knowledgeable. She did an excellent job. Be aware that there is a LOT of walking involved in this tour, walking over uneven ground, slick stones, and lots of steps or uphill walking.
A lot to see and learn!
Tanya_A, Oct 2023
The island is so worth a visit. There is abundant history here, and the guide made it very engaging and interesting! We appreciated taking the afternoon to see the island and enjoyed the evening sunset on the way back. A perfect day!
Nice experience
Shuhua_J, Oct 2023
We really enjoyed the tour. The tour person is very friendly and professional. We had a wonderful time
You don’t need this...
Karen_G, Oct 2023
You don’t need this package. Guy was late. Had to run for boat. Could have taken 2E ferry and bought same tour. Still needed to wait on long line. Guide was ok
Highly recommended tour
poppyjohnson, Oct 2023
