Delos is an underrated highlight of an itinerary to the Cyclades for those who enjoy history. The ruins in and of themselves are substantial and fascinating, as well as being crowned by a semi-challenging but rewarding hike to a central high point that offers stunning 360 degree views (accompanied late in the season by stiff 25 mile per hour winds) of the sea. If like me you are staying on other islands, getting to follow this up with a short jaunt to Mykonos to at least get a flavor (literally as well as figurative, given the number of water's edge restaurants near the port) is a rather nice bonus. The ferry crew were timely and no-nonsense - polite, but only to the point of not interfering with scheduling (for most of us that is welcome). I did not have a guide but have read enough history and enjoy traveling solo (plus you get to meet other people sometimes that way). Highest recommendation for this as an additional activity during your stay.

Our experience in general was amazing. The explanation of the winemaking process was very interesting and all of the tastings that were included were delicious and beautiful. our guide Dora was very knowledgeable about wine and wine making process and the wines of Santorini. Dora was also very attentive and responsive to the members of our group. I enjoyed the cooking class as well however I would make a couple of recommendations. it might have been more fun if we were allowed to do a little bit more of the actual cooking instead of it being mostly demonstration. Also they need to have better knives for the cooking class. The day overall was loads of fun and I would do it again.

Delos and Mykonos were amazing. Walking around the ruins on Delos was eye opening. The hike up the mountain was well worth it, and it provided great views. The ferry ride over there was rough, with people throwing up, it got me wondering when they would cancel because of the waves?! Other than that, Mykonos was also amazing. Great views and good time there. More time on Mykonos May be needed?! Great trip overall!

Everyone has said it, the day was a Joy! I had my reservations but by the end of the day, and by how quickly the day went, it was just so much fun. Highly recommended.

Delos was absolutely fascinating and the history behind it. The site was really good. Overall a very well spent day
