Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 95 reviews

I was on the fence about visiting this island during my time In Mykonos, but I am so happy I went. I had no idea just how much history was involved with Delos and learned way more than I thought. Only down side was the museum on the island was closed for renovations, but was so much to explore that I don’t think I would have had time anyway.

It was a great Tour to Delos! Bring a light jacket on the boat if you get cold because of the fast winds. And nice hiking shoes or sandals for when you hike up to The Temple Isis- a beautiful sight to see.

The service was very good and the guide very nice and knowledgeable. We had a pick up service at our hotel and everything went fine and on time

Getyourguide is the sure way to get the service you expect when traveling abroad.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was very professional.
