With an expert local guide, cruise over the sea to the UNESCO-listed sacred island, and explore its main excavation site on a walking tour. Hear all about the island in the days of Ancient Greece, and admire highlights of the excavations including the Terrace of the Lions, House of Dionysus, Archeological Museum of Delos and more. An upgrade is also available to include hotel pickup and drop-off from Mykonos hotels.


  • All entrance fees included
  • Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
  • Led by a local guide
Start your tour with a pickup from your Mykonos hotel, or make your own way to the port to meet your guide and group. Then, hop aboard your ferry and relax as you cross a stretch of the Aegean Sea to the nearby island of Delos. Now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the sacred island is believed to be the birthplace of the Greek gods Apollo and Artmenis and boasts ruins that date back to Ancient Greece.

Cruise into the harbor, board your coach, and travel to the main excavation site where a staggering collection of relics awaits. On a walking tour with your guide, make your way around the agora, the ancient market place where merchants from neighboring countries would meet. Stroll past the Sacred Lake, pose for photos by the Terrace of the Lions — one of the island’s best-known sights — and gaze in awe at the ruined grandeur of Delos’ ancient theater.

See old living quarters, such as the House of Dionysus, that hint at the daily lives of islanders in bygone days, and hear tidbits of enthralling Ancient Greek history that put all the sights into historical context. After viewing the Temple of Isis, a sculpture of an Egyptian goddess and various Roman water cisterns, head inside the Archeological Museum of Delos to browse an array of mosaics, statues and other artifacts found during excavations on the island.

After your walking tour finishes, hop back inside your minibus and return to the port to catch your ferry back to Mykonos. Say your goodbyes to your guide after disembarking, or finish your half-day tour with a hotel drop-off.

The boat ride was super wavy, BUT the tour and site was awesome.

Excellent - one of the highlights of our trip. Our guide Marilou or something like that sorry! was really incredible. Intelligent, passionate and funny - she made the ruins come alive with both history and anecdotes, even weaving in current politics and religion. Her background as an archaeologist really shined. Absolutely loved the tour, especially because of our tour guide. Well worth the half day trip to lean of the incredible history. Delos can be very hot, so be prepared with water and hats and sunscreen. Advise taking the larger ferry if the seas are stormy. The smaller ferry on the way back was akin to Mr. Toad's Wild Ride in very windy and choppy seas - a bit scary at times crossing the channel as the the tiny ship was tossed, and it didn't help that there was only one life preserver on board for the captain???!!. I suppose this must be the Greek way, but it was a little unnerving. Made it back safe, and have a story to tell : Notwithstanding, would still recommend. The guide was excellent.
