I thoroughly enjoyed this informative and educational tour. The vast array of ancient buildings and artefacts on this site is incredible. Our guide was Athena who was an archaeologist and architect who gad worked in the Delos site in the 80s. She really knew her stuff. Masks were mandatory on the ferry transfers and on the tour itself. Everyone complied. I never felt unsafe. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in ancient history.

Very easy to find ticket office by the old port in Mykonos , the crossing between the islands like a roller coaster as sea rather choppy . You don’t need much imagination to see how magnificent the ruins of Delos would have looked in ancient times . Our guide was very informative and help us to understand the history and life of the island back then . In my younger days I went to the Valley of the Kings in Egypt and would rate Delos on a par with that experience , make sure you take water and sun screen as it is very hot with little natural shade , all in all a great experience !

Very interesting guided tour. I highly recommend visiting Delos with a guide. Otherwise you won't understand the background and the ruins since there is not much information available on side. The guide was perfect. Very informative since she has worked as a archaeologist on Delos in the 80s. Great tour.
