Mykonos Island of Delos Excursion Reviews

Perfect for visitors interested in Greek history, mythology and archaeology, the Island of Delos is the spiritual and geographic center of the Cyclades island chain, and the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis, the offspring of Zeus.
We were first off the ship on the early tender so we arrived in Delos before the crowds.

We were first off the ship on the early tender so we arrived in Delos before the crowds. The site is isolated and it is hot, but there is nothing more moving than seeing the Terrace of Lions and recalling the ancient history of Greece while strolling the ruins. After the visit we had plenty of time back in Mykonos to walk around, see the windmills and eat lunch. Read Less

Really enjoyed this tour as well. The island of Delos is amazing with the ruins and the excavation work going on. We would definitely do this one again.

Very good tour, they offered it in Spanish. We got to know the island with a guided tour and then they left us in the center for us to continue knowing. Norwegian had a free shuttle that took us from the center to the port.

Our guide Angela was super passionate about the history of Delos so she spent a lot of time explaining details about ruins , and she rather people spending time enjoying the archeological site versus shopping. The tour itself included a late lunch ( around 2 pm as we were told that is the usual Greek lunch hour) in a restaurant next the to Ano Mera Monstry. The Ano Mera Monstry, in my opinion can be skipped , you can just do the Delos island and spend time in the town, unless you are super excited about Church or Monatry. Read Less

I have to admit that I had not heard about the Lindos Acropolis before. I found the history of this site very unique. The vestiges offered nice exploring opportunities in addition to providing us spectacular views on the ocean. The tour included time for a stop in Mykonos where we had time to explore the “little Venice” eat lunch at a local Greek restaurant and take a free shuttle bus back to the ship. Read Less

Being on this island was like being transported back into time to a period where the Greek gods were in control. The archeological findings were amazing to see. Very interesting.

We paid for the cruise-ship's excursion to the island of Delos which we enjoyed. Afterwards we used the cruise-provided free shuttle buses to go between the port and Mykonos Town where we wandered around on our own. It was easy to see the town attractions on foot by ourselves. The ship does not sail until 7am the next morning so you can partake of as much nightlife as you want. Read Less

We did a tour from the ship for half the day to Delos which was incredible. The tour group was a large size as most of them are but if you stay close to the tour guide you will see and hear everything. We did have a head set which helped too. This is a 2500 BC Sanctuary with an Amphitheater, was the birth place of mythological Apollo and his sister and so much more. Take a guided tour here to learn all the stories. The spring time was beautiful weather a flowers blooming everywhere we went. Read Less

Interesting site but there were way too many people for one tour guide. Even though we had headphones, the paths are narrow and if the guide got very far ahead we couldn't hear him. It was hard to stay with the group. Also, RCCL had us meet super early for the tour and there were actually numerous groups that all left on the same boat for Delos, so it didn't make sense that we had different meeting times. This tour would be much better with a smaller group. Read Less

Delos is a fascinating uninhabited island, reached by tender from Mykonos. If you are interested in archeology, go to see the Marble Lions and the House of Dionysus. Mykonos itself is charming but very crowded!

But Delos itself is interesting -- go on walk up the hill to the top in that heat!! Read Less
