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.
Delos is worth a visit if you get the chance.
Delos is worth a visit if you get the chance. Fascinating history and such an important part of Greek civilization. Had a lovely day, not too hot and not too windy so felt very lucky.

Really enjoyed seeing the Island of Delos, and thought the RCL guide was informative. The ferry and tour organizaton were good. We were able to wander the port-town after the tour, and have a wonderful Greek lunch with Calamari along the seafront. The ferry to Delos had provided a voucher to get us back to the ship. My favorite port! Read Less

This was one of the worst of the excursions. It was a very hot day & the tour was way too long they should have cut it short due to the heat. Parts interesting enough but seriously not worth it Rough ferry ride out & back Left tour in town as wanted to see more of Mykonos glad we did.Quaint alleyways beautiful white painted buildings with splashes of brilliant colours. Shops & eateries abound. Again we wish we had more time here. Picked tour back up & drove to a nice place where lunch was supplied Read Less

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

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

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

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
