A must see in Greece
Everyone on the ship were so personable that we didn’t want to leave! So much fun. Great authentic food too. We went crazy for the wine and making friends in this atmosphere was so easy! Highly recommend to add this to your trip and find the time to unwind and feel Greece in your soul.

Sailing adventure with Nadia K to Delos and Rhenia Island from Mykonos
Amazing trip! The crew were great and there were just the right amount of people (6) for it to feel very high end. The lunch provided was restaurant level which is incredible! Couldn't recommend more! One of the best days in Mykonos.

Mykonos: Superior Yacht Cruise to Rhenia Island and Guided Tour of Delos
Excellent yacht in very good condition, sailed most of the way, not crowded, good food and wine. Beautiful secluded bay for snorkeling and swimming. Delos is extraordinary - much larger than I had imagined. Crew very hospitable and friendly. Very good value for money.

Last second cancellation of French guide

Delos Day Trip from Mykonos
The tour went almost as expected. Nice visit and the guide had a complete and flawless speech. Two bad points. We had subscribed for the tour in French, but when we arrived we were informed that it had been cancelled and we were moved to the English version. Ok for us, but some other French people were struggling to follow. Also, the meeting point was hard to find. We could have used better instructions or a pin on google maps.

Exploring Delos

Delos Day Trip from Mykonos
The overall trip was great, but we were unaware of the snack bar being open on the second level of the ferry. It would have been nice to stock up on water before stepping on to the island, but that was more our fault than the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable, but we would have liked to sit out a little less time in the sun at the amphitheater.

A very enjoyable experience!

Delos Day Trip from Mykonos
Overall it was a very good experience! Getting to Delos was simple enough from Mykonos Old Port, the tour guide Athina was excellent, explained the history and myth behind the Island really well and allowed some time at the end for sole exploration of the island. The only let down was that I was given a headset which did not always work well and was in Italian language instead of English which meant that I needed to stay close to Athina to fully understand and not miss any parts of the tour. But that was a minor inconvenience in what was otherwise a very enjoyable tour and experience. Efharisto Para Poli! Thank you very much!

Mykonos: Superior Yacht Cruise to Rhenia Island and Guided Tour of Delos
My girlfriend and I had a great time on this excursion. There was plenty of room aboard the boat and everything was very clean. The swimming area was crystal clear blue waters with some fish and other marine life to see while snorkeling. The crew was also very attentive going above and beyond to make sure we wanted for nothing. Highly recommend booking.
