Visit the mythological birthplace of the Greek god Apollo on this customizable sailing tour to Delos. Leave Mykonos’ bustling harbor behind for the ancient ruins and sweeping Aegean views of the uninhabited island, where you can explore on your own or with an optional guided tour.

There was a lot of confusing and conflicting info about getting to Delos and what you could do there, so I hope this helps! - you can book in advance on line but it is more expensive - check the times before you travel - some places say three trips a day, but there was only one 10am trip on the day we decided to go - it will be cancelled if the seas are rough - get to the kiosk in plenty of time - there was a long queue at 9.20am - you can only pay cash for the tickets - they are €20 per person return - once on the boat as lovely as it may seem seats on the top deck near the edges are not as great as you may think - unless you want a soaking lol - we had three hours on the island and that was enough - the cafe isn't always open, so take plenty of water - you don't have to have a guide, despite what some sites say - you have to pay €12,50 to enter the archaeological site - take your passport if you are over sixty and it's half price - you get a very flimsy useless map, so if you are interested in more detail I would get an online guide or book - we went straight up to the highest point, past all the tours and then worked our way back down - seemed to avoid the crowds better - it's not magnificently signed and there's not lots of info about each building - the little museum is worth a look It was a really fascinating place and so much history, not sure a guide would have offered much more that you can find out yourself and a lot of peopel on tours looked quite bored!!!

If you are up for historical monuments and learning about the ancient civilisations that used to rule in the old times, then this is a must do for you! The small boat departs from Mykonos old port in the morning and returns back at lunch time. Be ready for some sea sickness on the return if you are doing this trip in August (cause of the winds and waves in August) but the trip from Delos to Mykonos only lasts 30 minutes, so you should be ok. Delos is an ancient small island, protected by Unesco, so buildings cannot be constructed there, thus you have to take with you all necessities, water and maybe a snack, as well as sunscreen lotion cause the whole area does not have any shade covers, not even the pedestrian roads which was the only negative aspect. There are tour guides who for a certain fee will walk you throughout the island and explain everything about the ancient statues still placed there, the ancient theatre, ancient houses and palaces etc. This place was the kingdom of kingdoms in old times, so your guide will show you the first bank ever existed on planet, and even the first hotel on the planet. Do not miss the chance to walk up the stairs on the hill where you can see the surrounding 5 islands of the ancient times, which made a secret symbol on map, which was even used to worship the gods of those times. A small museum is available for a free visit (the only covered area on the island) where you can get to see some really well preserved ancient statues, pottery, tools from ancient times, and even ancient jewellery.

Delos is an island that is currently uninhabited and is mainly an archeological site . You can’t stay there , only the people that are workers stay on the island . You can get to it by Ferry from the island of Mykonos. In June 2019, we left the old port in the afternoon because we missed the 10am boat. There are two options, go on your own, which costs €20 the round trip boat plus €12 for the entrance, that is, a total of €32. The second option, which was the one we chose, was a guided tour that had a value of €50 (it included the round trip boat and the entrance to the place). We recommend the guided tour without a doubt, unless you are not going with someone who knows the subject, you will just see pillars and stones piled on an island with a very nice view. Once we disembarked, we met up with a tour guide who was quite informative, extremely nice, and knowledgeable. We got a sense of how bustling a place Delos was at that time. When the tour ended, we had time to tour the museum and some other parts of the island, then took the ferry back to Mykonos. Don't miss the museum! Don't forget to bring sun block, a hat (there are very few shady places), and water! If you run out of water, inside the museum they give away a bottle of water per person. It takes about 4 hours to tour the island (including the guided tour). Take hiking shoes since there is a nice hike uphill were you can get a fabulous view . Time at Delos was time well-spent.

We were on a cruise ship and opted to go on the Delos tour rather than hang out in Mykonos (been there, done that decades ago). Good choice. The island is now uninhabited and requires taking a ferry from Mykonos to Delos. Once we disembarked, we met up with a tour guide who was quite informative. One got a sense of how bustling a place Delos was. Time permitting, it's worth a quick trip to the museum before boarding the boat back to Mykonos. Time on Delos was time well-spent.

The whole uninhabited island of Delos is an archaeological site. It's the mythical birthplace of God Apollonas. The site has Doric temples, markets, amphitheates, houses with mosaics and the iconic Terrace of the Lions statues. The Archaeological Museum displays statues excavated from the site. It's a must visit if you like archaeology. Please note there is nothing on site, so take water and something to eat.
