What a dream come true! We’ve wanted to visit as many sites as possible on this trip and Delos was amazing, we could have spent more time. It’s absolutely beautiful, well tended and clean. The mosaics were lovely. The tenders going back were pretty rough,...More

If Delos was your first ancient greek sites, then not bad, if you visited other grand ancient greek sites before (like Didyma in Turkey, Apollo temple ruin was amazing!!, Jerash in Jordan), you'll know instantly beautiful stuff have been taken away centuries ago, not much...More

I took the first boat over (9a) and the last boat back (6:30p). I think I could spend another day crawling around on the ruins. There is so much to see and so much ground to cover. When I got off the boat, I went...More

The site at Delos is absolutely stunning, with fantastically well preserved ruins and mosaics, with the Theatre being a personal highlight. For any fans of the ancient, it’s a must see However, the site feels quite unloved and very much geared up for the tour...More

We took the first boat over and needed the whole time, taking the last boat back. There are 3 trails which can link into a larger trail which are all worth doing. On top of that there are trails to other ruins worth visiting. Whilst...More

The site is fascinating and certainly worth a visit, however, be careful how you choose to see it. We opted for an afternoon Delos tour trip which to be honest was a mistake. (See separate review). The afternoon tour was rushed and we left disappointed...More

In the Archaic and Classical periods Delos was an important religious centre, where Leto gave birth to Artemis and nine days later to Artemis’ twin brother, Apollo, as Homer narrates. In return for the sanctuary, Leto promised that the birth of Apollo would turn this...More

This island is one of a kind, the only island in the world to be totally part of Unesco. You can only guess its greatness, I hope they will keep working to rebuild the buildings.

Having seen many archaeological sites (Epidaurus, Olympia, Delphi) here in Greece, Delos tops the list. I am glad that we did not skip it. We did the visit on our own as I read many reviews on tours being a bit chaotic. It is very...More

We did not use a tour company. You can just go to the old port in Mykonos and buy a boat ticket to Delos. When you arrive in Delos, you buy an admission ticket to the archaeological site. There are guides right inside the... More
