If you have any interest in ancient civilization, this is the number one site in Europe. Really gives you an idea how advanced the Greeks were before the Roman Empire. The ruins are in such amazing shape that some walls still have stucco and paint....More
The site is exactly what you would expect. What you wouldn't expect is to pay for the Delos tour boat and these are the exact words 'tour boat ' and on arrival at delos be expected to pay to get on the island.
Such an amazing place, wind, sea and the silence of the basin. Amazing to see the technological advances, well before the Romans, and how truly remarkable this culture was.....please visit. It is so worth the trip. Get a private guide, she made it so real...More
I was on a tour of Greek islands and Delos was the first place my wife and I visited. Not being particularly into archeology, I found it vaguely interesting but nothing more. Good for one visit, perhaps. I've been to sites in Egypt and Tunisia...More
The main reason we visited Mykonos was to see Delos, and we're very glad we did! It was far superior than all the touristy shopping in Mykonos. Even after having visited Athens, Delphi and Mycenae, Delos added yet another fascinating dimension to our 3-week walk...More
Delos was an extremely important place in the ancient world (also in myth, as the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis), and it is the best preserved Ancient Greek city. It's a 1/2 hour boat ride from Mykonos, so if you're on Mykonos, don't miss it!
Delos is an island that is currently uninhabited and mainly an archeological site . You don’t stay there , the only people that stay on the island are workers . You can get to it by Ferry from the island of Mykonos .
Despite the weather I am so glad we visited this awe inspiring island. We should have stayed longer, a full day would have enabled us to see so much more. Our guide Athena brought the history alive for us. She was so knowledgeable and explained...More

We did not use a tour company. You can just go to the old port in Mykonos and buy a boat ticket to Delos. When you arrive in Delos, you buy an admission ticket to the archaeological site. There are guides right inside the site who offer their (paid) services or you can take along a guidebook which explains the site - your choice.
I would suggest you get to the dock early to get your boat ticket to Delos. There are lots and lots of cruise ship passengers taking the same boats to Delos.
