Tour Details

Board your boat and skid across calm waters to the uninhabited island of Delos. Considered one of the most important mythological, historical, and archaeological sites in Greece, Delos had a position as a holy sanctuary for a millennium before Olympian Greek mythology made it the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis.

On this stark and lonely landscape, you will have the opportunity to explore the ruins of an ancient settlement that once bustled with the sounds of trade and commerce. With your guide, you will hear the tale while standing before the remnants of the Great Temple of Apollo, and you will check off the UNESCO-listed ruins' most impressive highlights, from the Sanctuary of Apollo to the housed of Dionysus and Cleopatra. Pass through the classical Theater, where over 5,000 citizens once cheered epic performances.

End this incredible tour at the Hellenistic mansions adorned with elaborate mosaics crafted thousands of years ago. Look out upon the greens and blues of the archipelago from the Terrace of the Foreign Gods and visit the lost Sacred Lake -- which stands today dry - and where it is said that once swans and geese of Apollo frolicked.

Time on Delos is forever frozen, and this tour offers the rare opportunity to stroll in the footsteps of the ancient Greek gods.
