Amazing Delos shame about the organisation and hidden add on charges
Rebecca_S
, Sep 2021
We paid £86.92 for this trip for 2 people, we understood from the booking that we’d have to pay 12euro each for enterance to the museum. We had an email to say that someone would meet us at 9.30 by the st nikolas chapel in the old port. We got to the port at 9.15, there were lots of different groups around doing other organised tours to Delos, there was no one waiting there at that earlier time so I asked one of the many tour guides around and they said I need to go to the Delos tours counter to redeem my tickets. We queued and were sent back to the church where there was a lady with a card with my name on it. She gave us our tickets and said we needed to pay 12euro each for the museum and another 5euro for the rental of whisper ear pieces to listen to the guide. We paid this in cash although I was a little perturbed re the earpiece cost as this wasn’t on the list of extras to pay for in the Viator detail. We got to the boat, the transfer to Delos was easy and comfortable on a decent sized boat. When getting off at Delos we were told to be back for the boat to depart by 1.30pm. Getting off the boat was chaos with so many different tour groups, tour guides were like herding cats to get their different speaking groups together. We got through the entrance, we were herded off to the first place of interest, which other groups headed towards too, this made tour difficult as there was clearly overlap it needed a bit more organisation to make sure the guides weren’t overlapping as they had huge groups and made for cramped areas. We never used the ear pieces we paid for as the guide said don’t use them, when I switched mine on could hear someone talking in Italian so they were programmed to a Italian guide. This was clearly an annoyance for everyone else in the group! The guide was chasing earpieces at the end of the tour I suspect some kept them out of protest for the charge, she didn’t seem to have the right amount of them to take back. The guide was informative but the group was so big and some points I couldn’t hear or she started before we all caught up. The other huge annoyance was that we paid the museum fee as we weren’t given a choice as were others in the group, only to be told the museum is closed it’s undergoing works and isn’t going to be open for another year until it’s finished so that was another 12 euros each wasted. I will be requesting a refund for these as I’m sure others will too. We were given free time about an hour and twenty mins to explore the site at leisure, this was good got to experience the parts we wanted to see and take pictures that were less crowded by the huge groups. Delos is an amazing place to visit and I highly recommend doing so, but would say book a small tour or do it on you’re own doing the research on the history yourself. This particular tour needs some reorganisation to improve how it’s done before I could recommend it.

Sweat equity worth it

To come to Mykonos and skip Delos would be a shame. Our guide brought the ancient site to life with her knowledge (and candor). The day was hot but I’ll put in this sweat equity for a great experience any time.

Great tour down the history lane!

This was a very good tour, though it didn't start well for us. We had actually booked last minute after speaking a Viator agent who contacted the tour operator on the ground and confirmed the tour with a hotel pick-up/drop. We got picked-up on time and our guide Alexandra, a bubbly person with full of information gave us a briefing en route to the port, however upon arrival we learnt to our disappointment that there was some issue with the agency that booked our tickets and their communication to the company that operated the ferry, consequently we couldn't be on the boat as they were sold out and could operate only on limited capacity due to COVID! However, this we later learnt wasn't the issue as the ferry company has a monopoly on that route and there was some issue with that tour company thru which we had booked out tickets and hence we couldn't be on board, because our tickets were transferred to the next day and they took us on board even though I am not sure that the problem they had cited was resolved. Nevertheless, we were able to get to Delos. It was extremely windy on that day resulting in a choppy sea and high waves. Even though it was less than an hour's travel to the Delos island, this didn't go down well for those with sea-sickness (something to be considered). However, the tour on the island made up for it and there is something about that island, the feelings you get and the vibes it generates, it's very special. And all that history dating to thousands of years and to think that a flourishing civilization existed on that island which was a major religious centre and a port (more than Mykonos). Our guide Athina, a very knowledgeable person, guided us through the island and it's history in great patience and we were longing for more. Time was short as we only had few hours (morning tour) and there was only ferry per day and covid complicatons, so we couldn't do full justice in visiting the whole island and had to be contented with part of it. However, we do hope to return sometime in the future and do the full island tour exploring every nook and corner. Highly recommended tour. Just be warned of the sea moods....as Mykonos is one of the windiest of all islands, it has a bearing on the sea (choppy) and high waves, which was the case on that day of our cruise, even though the cruise lasted less than a hour, it was hard to take for some experiencing sea-sickness.

Delos the delightful

This was fascinating. To be in a place with so much history was almost magical. This is a tour to do on a day when the temperature is not high as there is no shade and when we went no shop available. So take a hat, plenty of water and sunscreen. Good for people who don't like boats because the ferry ride is only 30 minutes.

It was a fantastic tour with our very knowledgeable tour guide. Group was small so no trouble seeing or hearing unlike some of the larger groups. Ferry ride was about 30 minutes. Tour guide purchased our tickets after we gave her the money so we did not have to wait long in line.

This was a great smaller tour. The guide was very informative and patient considering we had a three year old in tow. This was one of my favorite stops on my vacation.

Sorry to say but our tour guide was not a very pleasant person. She arrived a bit late. Seemed a bit disorganized. We were on a tight timeline due to being on a cruise so there was some concern that we wouldn't see everything. This was definitely just a job for her and there was no passion behind what she was speaking about. I feel like we could have just worn one of those recording things and got more information.

We were on a cruise ship and a bit nervous about planning a tour with outside that offered by the cruise line. There was no need for worry. Our guide gave us a clear meeting point and she was punctual in meeting us there. The tour was very informative and the guide was knowledgeable, but she seemed a bit gruff (admittedly it was pouring rain, so that could account for the gruffness). I really enjoyed this tour, but it required we purchase an additional ticket to enter Delos and it required a moderate amount of walking and transport by boat. Definitely wear comfortable shoes, take something to drink, and use the restroom prior to exiting the boat, as facilities are limited once there.

A good way to experience a very crowded site

The tour was very good. The guide was knowledgeable, clear, and happy to answer any questions. The meeting place was right near the boarding area, and because we were in a group, we did not have to wait on line for tickets. We strongly recommend choosing a small group. Some of the groups we ran into were very large, saw less, and were difficult to negotiate.
