Amazing excursion! The crew was incredible captain bob and panos were very attentive and entertaining and really made this a very enjoyable experience! Highly recommend if you are looking to check out the islands of Delos and Rhenia to do it with this crew they are wonderful! Also the activity of walking through Delos was absolutely unreal and the waters of the Aegean sea near Rhenia were so refreshing!

Good information. My boat ride over was with people who had in person guides. My audio tour lasted longer than the in person guides. It was also nice to stop and pause to explore an area more. The way finding is slightly confusing. This is more an issue with the island itself. The audio goes into great details to get you to the right spot. But still confusing. Be ready to pause while walking.

Absolute must visit island for a day trip when visiting Mykonos. My only critique is that I could’ve (and would’ve) spent much longer on Delos. There is a ton to see, 2 hours may sound like enough time, but for me it really wasn’t. I really loved my 2 hours though, so I guess I will just have to go back someday. Ferry was comfortable and the ride went by quick. Really great trip.

The water was so cold but the trip was so worth it. they made a delicious lunch for us on board. Delos is so underrated. We would have loved a little more time here.

Excellent. It would have been better if we had been given a map of the site like the one that was available for people paying to enter the site on the island.
