What people are saying about Archaeological Site of Delos

Such a fun experience! The hosts are hilarious and very nice. Helped take many of our pictures :) Just enough people on the boat to not feel incredibly crowded, but there was a good number of us. The stop to swim at Rhenia has beautiful water and we were provided pool noodles to help float. The plank to dive from was also a hit. Lunch was DELICIOUS! Plenty of free wine, water, and lemonade to last the trip. Beer and sodas on sale as well. We chose to visit Delos, which I enjoyed. It’s two long hours in the heat, but if you’re interesting in touring ruins, this is a must see. There is a restroom on board which is helpful. Overall, an amazing experience that we would absolutely do over again! Also, as someone traveling with a nut-allergy, they were great to assure me that our lunch was safe.

We had a guide that was the former head of archeology at Delos! It was a superb experience. But please note that the tix you buy online need to be traded in for paper tix at the dock. There was a long, slow line. Would have loved not to have had to deal with that aspect. Additionally, it would have been nice to know at the outset how often the ferry runs so that we could have taken more time at the site exploring on our own

Unforgettable experience. Our guide was also an archeologist who provided so much in depth information and history of the Delos

Don’t wear a hat! It was super windy! Take Dramamine if you get sea sick.

Super fun trip with good food and friendly people!
