What people are saying about Mykonos Town

Athena is an engaging and knowledgeable guide who draws on her many years of experience working on the island as an archaeologist to tell you all about Delos. The tour was informative and enjoyable. At every stop Athena would go into detail about the history of the island, often with a joke or two! There are many cats on the island and Athena would regularly pull out a bag of dry cat food to feed them whilst continuing to talk about the history of Delos. At the end of tour we had an hour to explore by ourselves before the boat departed. Just enough time to climb to the top of a mountain to take in the view. Tip: Get to the ticket office at the harbour early to exchange your voucher for your tickets. We arrived at 9:30 and joined the back of a long queue. We got our tickets just before 10:00 (when the boat was due to depart)!

We got so much out of this tour! Our guide, Athena, was extremely knowledgeable and passionate. There is so much to see on the island and Athena took us to all the best spots. We also had some free time at the end to roam around. Would recommend!

Very good organization. The guide spoke very good French, was very audible. His comments were varied and interesting. We learned a lot and at the end of the visit she took the time to answer the group's questions.

Great tour. The guide was awesome and sound system helpful with the wind! Would highly recommend!

Excellent guide, very informative. Must visit Delos.
