Know More about this tour

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.

  • Our tour guide Effie was exceptional. We had a booking for 7 people and we all enjoyed the tour. Effie was very keen to share a lot of interesting facts about Delos. Delos is an amazing place I am glad I booked this tour. The ferry trip there and back was lovely. Highly recommend.

  • We had a great day on Delos. The tour was very informative and extensive, lasting more than two hours. I learned a lot about Greek history and mythology. It was amazing to see the frescos and the lions guarding the birthplace of Apollo. We also took the opportunity to stay and catch the 3:00 boat back to shore. Would highly recommend this tour!

  • Tour group too large, not exactly sure where to pick up tickets, and entrance fee to museum should be included in price. Otherwise the tour was good and our tour guide was very good.

  • DO NOT BOOK WITH MTM!
    They didn't show up!
    Not answering emails and neither to the phone.
    We were helped by the main local company that runs the Delos tours which over the unfullfilled service.
    The site was spectacular and the guide Maria was great, but in figuring things out we lost 2 hours that would have make it a perfect experience.

  • Elelisa sp? was an awesome, friendly and personable guide. Her descriptions of Delos and its daily life came to life as we walked through the community. She highlighted significant aspects of the excavation and gave suggestions for further exploration on our own including the museum and the temples further up on the hill. Elelisa's depth of knowledge was evident as she explained so much that the time flew and before we were ready, the tour had come to an end. Her English was excellent. We enjoyed our tour and would recommend this guide.

  • Visiting the sacred island of Delos was honestly the only reason I bothered going to Mykonos! I have an archaeology background, and have been obsessed with Greek mythology and history since I was a very young child, so Delos was THE place for me to see. Delos was all I dreamed of, and more. I had no idea just how many ruins there were on the island. I wanted to lose my return ferry sticker so I could stay with the archaeologists still working there. Our guide was terrific - she had ready answers to all questions, and a good sense of humor. Definitely book this unique experience!

  • My 3 friends and I recently booked this tour while we were in Mykonos so that we could see a bit of culture, rather than just partying, and thoroughly enjoyed going to Delos. Our tour guide, Efi, I think, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and even made us laugh a lot. She took us through all the main sites of Delos and answered all of our questions. I also thought the duration of this tour was perfect. Be aware that Mykonos and Delos are very windy places, so the boat ride can be an adventure in of itself! The only feedback I have is that it was a bit confusing as to where we showed our Viator vouchers. I ended up calling the tour company to find out where in Mykonos we were supposed to go. Other than that, this tour was great!

  • We enjoyed our trip to Delos, and the tour operator who picked us up from the hotel to take us to the port was prompt and helped make our trip hassle free. We would definitely recommend a guide for making the whole experience more meaningful. We learned much more this second time by having a guide than by doing it on our own. Well worth it.

  • amazing trip! tour guide was super knowledgeable and learned a ton about the ancient city. make sure you take the time to climb to the top of hill afterwards for a panoramic view of the island and mykonos.

  • The tour on Delos was excellent. However getting to the ferry to go to Delos was very stressful. We confirmed our arrival ahead but the person meeting us was not there when we arrived. We came into the new cruise port and had to go to the old port. When we got there, there was no one to meet us. I made several calls to the local company and was told to walk over to the ferry dock at the opposite end of the port. We had no tickets and no one there seemed to know who we should contact. We finally went to get on the ferry and were told to go back to the ticket booth. Finally the local contact was at the booth and we got our tickets -20 minutes prior to departure. Once that hassle was over the tour went smoothly. The guide on Delos was excellent and we enjoyed our day.
