Tour Description

This is a cruise and walking tour to the island of Delos, only 40 min by boat from Mykonos. This island is one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. According to mythology, this was the place where god Apollo was born, which is why the entire island was devoted to his cult.

In the ancient times, Delos was a major religious pilgrimage but with time it acquired political importance. Many temples and buildings were constructed, the Delian games were celebrated every five years, the treasury of the Delian League was kept there, congresses were held in the temple of Apollo and the largest slave market in the region was maintained on the island.

Apart from a religious centre, Delos was never properly inhabited. Today it is an open archaeological site and also has an interesting museum.

The Island of Delos near Mykonos is a treasure trove, an archaeologists dream. It saddend us to see so much greek pottery laying about and toursit picking it up and taking it away! As you walk the paths pots are under your feet, being walked on and crushed by tourists. The Greek government is doing NOTHING to preserve or continue restoration, that had been started by the French in 1873. Our tour guide assured us that no restoration is on going here now. Weeds grow wildly over the ruins, half the island is covered in them, and barely visable. Only a few areas are roped off, but that did not stop the graffitti I saw carved in marble over 3,000 years old. Something must be done, before this mythical, historical site, the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis, once the center of Greek commerce is destroyed.

Bonjour everybody, my name is Dufour, I'm 58 years old and I'm French. I've visited almos 30 countries and in the spring I went to Delos Island, on a tour from Mykonos Island, Greece. I chose this tour because it was recommended by friends, and also because I read it on a brochure.
The departure date was 12-05-06. We weren't delayed and the welcome I would say was half and half. We used a small ferry and the trip was very comfortable, not so crowded, with a good ambiance, but we weren't offered any food or drinks. The staff was polite and professional. We had a guide and we were given all the explanations we needed. All our questions were answered very well.
I really liked this tour because I looked at archaeological sanctuary. The thing I enjoyed the most was the archaeological houses and buildings, and also the first museum during our tour to Greece with explanations in Greek, English, and French as well.
The tour lasted for about 7 hours. I've visited similar tours in other countries and this one takes for the quality and the organization 9/10 and for the interest 10/10. I think this tour would be interesting to children and to third age people and the money was good.

Hi, I'm Oscar Reno Mendida I'm 31 years old and I'm from Spain. I've visited five countries and the spring of 2006 I went to Greece to Mykonos Island. I decided to take part in a tour to Delos Island, since it was proposed by our hotel. The departure point was very easy to find, and we weren't delayed for any reason. We went by a small ferry, received a warm welcome, and had a very comfortable trip, with a really good ambiance. It wasn't at all crowded, but I'd like to be offered some food or drinks during the trip and I should be aware to bring something to drink.
We had a guide that was included in the trip. The explanations were very clear in all the languages, English, French and German, and all of my questions were answered. I have to say that the staff was really professional and polite.
I really liked the tour. We walked through areas of the island that were populated at one time and told what each area was, how it was used and how it gained its name. The thing I enjoyed the most was the preservation of many ruins to date.
The tour lasted for 4 hours and I’d rate 10/10 the organization, the interest and the quality of this it. I’ve never been to others, but definitely this one was really good. I think third age people and children will find it very interesting. I certainly lived the experience and it wasn’t just a staged tour. I would recommend this to others, because also the value for money was good.

I have visited more than 30 countries in my life. I chose this particular tour as it is known as one of the top activities of the island of Mykonos. At 11:00 a.m. we were at the tour’s departure point, which –by the way- was really easy to reach. We received a good and warm welcome, even though the admission desk was quite rude. The tour lasted about three and a half hours and we stayed at Delos for about one. We went on a small ferry, the trip was comfortable and I enjoyed the ambiance as the tour was not very crowded. There was a guide in the tour who took us through about half of the site, through ancient houses and sculptures, he gave us plenty of explanations and answered all our questions. All the information was very helpful, and not too much to learn in one afternoon. What I enjoyed more in this tour was the description of the small details that our guide pointed out, which we would have missed without him. All the staff was very helpful, polite and professional. I have attended similar tours and I think this one was much more authentic than other tours, such as Santorini and Knossos. The lack of restoration of Delos was particularly pleasing. I would surely recommend this tour to others and I think it would be of interest for children and third age people, too, even though I found it a little expensive - complete tour should always have student discounts. Here’s something that needs to be improved: Tour agencies when booking tickets need to do a better job informing the patrons of options for prices, what is needed for the duration of the tour e.t.c. However, my overall impression is very good; the tour was of particular interest. I’d rate the organization and quality of this tour in comparison to others with a 9/10.

Hello, my name is Matthew, I am from Alberta, Canada and I am 21 years old. I have visited 15 to 30 countries and this summer I decided to visit the Greek islands. I would like to tell you about my tour by a small ferry to Delos Island which I took from Mykonos Island. This tour is known as one of the top activities of the island and I personally needed the information for my school.

The date of the departure was May 12/06 at 11 AM. The departure point was very easy to find and we left right on time. We received a good and warm welcome and the trip was really comfortable, although no food or drinks were offered. It wasn’t very crowded but mostly because of the season, too early in the summer.

A guide was included in the price. The explanations which were only in English, were very clear and all of our questions were answered. It was a really well organized tour, and everybody, including the drivers and guides were really polite and professional.

I liked it as a tour because I saw many things, such as markets, houses, custom house, e.t.c. The thing I was most impressed about was the “trident” house, the lions, and the lack of restoration which in my opinion shows authenticity.

The tour took us 4 hours, and the guided tour time 1 ½ hour.

I have been to similar tours in other countries during previous holidays and if I had to rate this one in comparison with the others, I would have to say 7/10. About the organization and quality, I would say 6/10 and about the interest of the tour 7/10 because there was a lot of repetition between the tour and the guide book. I don’t think this tour would interest children or people of the third age.

My opinion about this tour is that it is an oriented “staged” excursion and the money is reasonable.

But beyond all these I saw new things and experienced another way of life.
