Best to book in advance if not doing a tour guide as it gets very busy. We visited without a guide but overheard some of the commentary when walking around so if you are interested in the details suggest doing guided tour. Food and drinks available on the boat, great value. Its very hot so you need drinks and snacks for the island. Would highly recommend.

The ticket booth is easy to find, the attendant only knows about the boats, nothing about Delos or its facilities. If there are cruise ships in port, get there at least 30 mins prior to your departure time to exchange your voucher, the crowds could be maddening. The transfer boats are a bit of a McHale's Navy, but they get the job done. For the visit itself, Delos is amazing. Sensible shoes, water and a hat are absolutely essential; there is no natural shade and depending on the route you take, hills are almost a certainty, some not for the faint of heart. Get a copy of the "Tour of the Archaeological Site of Delos" (free) from the museum in Mykonos before you go, it is invaluable for explaining all that you see while in Delos.

Buying a ticket at the counter is uncomplicated and easy. The ship left on time, the journey pleasant. crew friendly. Only on the island you have to be aware that there is nothing to drink. No shop, nothing. Be sure to buy water on the ship. 50 cents for 1/2 liter. The return trip also went smoothly.
