We were worried about trying to squeeze in Santorini and Mykonos. We were told Santorini was it, so we were going to skip Mykonos, and then came across Delos information. I am SO glad we did not skip it. You can catch the ferry from Mykonos right in town to get to the island. So easy and convenient. It was... More

We were very impressed visiting this Site, which is only a half hour boat ride from Mykonos. We were advised by our hotel staff that our visit would be much more worthwhile if we went with a guide and I am so glad we took their advice. Our guide, Alexandra, was fantastic, giving us all sorts of history and insight... More

Pay the extra and get a guide. Boat trip was comfortable even in the rough sea. There is a lot of walking and standing. Make sure you leave sufficient time to visit museum

There is so much history and stories on Delos. The stories, the artifacts, the ancient civilization, all dating back to the 8th century B.C. and more, will leave you speechless. We took a guided tour with a lady who worked for Delos for 30 years and lived on the island for 7 years. We learned about everything across the island... More

What a wonderful place to visit and transport yourself to the days of these ancient cultures so many of which traded worshipped and mingled here. You wont feel too far form Atlantis when you see this.

It's very easy to visit Delos island. You can either do it on your own, most of the islands around offer boat transport or book it via a travel agency. You can also get a guide to walk you through and explain you the most important stuff. (Ask for Pantelis if you are booking via agency, he works with most... More

I would certainly recommend a visit to Delos. We had a shorter visit having missed the earlier boat & wished we had more time to look at everything. It could easily take a whole day. I'd recommend wearing good shoes, not sandals or flip flops & I wore light trousers - some pathways are over grown & there are bugs... More

Wonderful wonderful ruins. Great to spend about 3 hours. There's a small cafe. But you can bring your own water and pack some sandwiches for a good picnic if the weather isn't too hot. We were here in May. Weather was just nice. Visit the museum if you can. Although it's small and quite sad, it just showed us how... More

Interesting island to visit with lots to see. We had about 4 hours there and that was enough. Ferries regular from Mykonos port. Please don't be misled. The €20pp return ferry fee does not cover entrance to Delos which is an extra €12pp. Worth it but just make sure you have the cash with you. It took us by surprise.

As a family of four we visited the island on April 24. We took the ferry from Mykonons harbour - and guess what, they were only taking cash, so €80 for four. On the island only then did we find out that there was €12 each to be able to get off the boat! Again, guess what, no cards accepted.... More
