What people are saying about Mykonos Town

Meet up point was easy to find. The boat ride was very comfortable. Being early in the day I was happy to see some tables and chairs with a cafe on board. The seats on side of the boat really let you enjoy the ride over to the island. The tour itself was amazing. The audio equipment wasn’t my favorite. It was windy and hard to understand. I ventured on my own and explored. Love the island and the history from what I was able to understand. The guide was an archeologist and so smart about the history and layout of the island.

Overall this tour was wonderful. I was a bit confused regarding getting my own tickets but easy to do once I figured it out. The guide was very knowledgeable and so kind. Met us at the ticket booth and explained what was going to happen. Great tour of Delos. If you can, do the private tour.

Great tour guide, she is a wealth of knowledge to Greek mythology and the history of Greece/Ottoman empire. However you will need to use your imagination since it is a ruin. Make sure to bring water and sunscreen/sun shade of some sort as it is baron land.

She was very knowledgeable and used to be an archeologist in the island. - Her English was very good. But, the group was a little large and if we got to far away from her the earpiece would cut out.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and happy to share her vast knowledge with our group. There were other groups whose leaders barely seemed to speak with them. Ours was engaging & a pleasure.
