Uncover the archaeological drama of Delos on a half-day tour from Mykonos. With a local guide, you'll cruise over the sea to the UNESCO-listed sacred island, and explore its main excavation site on a walking tour. Hear  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 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  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 puts 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 where your tour will come to an end.

We booked this tour last minute while on our cruise, and were very glad we did. Mykonos was a beautiful stop on our cruise itinerary with its whitewashed labyrinth of homes and stores, but we are really glad we took this side excursion to this ancient island. After we docked and took a short water taxi ride, we spent the morning touring around Delos with our guide, Efi. She was very knowledgeable and brought life to the ancient ruins of this amazing island for us. We commented a number of times how having an exceptional guide really makes for a fun excursion. We have a number of stories that we continue to reflect back on...Did you know that the Cyclades group of islands in the Aegean sea comes from the word, Circle, which comes from the Greek word 'kyklos' that form around the island of Delos. so many fun parallels from a favorite movie of ours. Highly recommend this very fun and informative excursion.
