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.

An upgrade is also available to include hotel pickup from Mykonos hotels.
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.

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.
