Rhenia Yacht Cruise and Delos Guided Tour with Transfers

2. Rhenia Yacht Cruise and Delos Guided Tour with Transfers

Your sailing cruise experience starts with complimentary transportation from your hotel or a designated meeting point depending on the location of the accommodation. One of the cruise representatives will greet you and give you an overview of the cruise itinerary. Once an overview of the sailing yacht and important safety information has been introduced by the crew, you will set sail for Rhenia and Delos islands, the center of the Cyclades, located few miles south-west of Mykonos. During the cruise the crew will be happy to show you how to raise and trim the sails as well as to steer the yacht, weather permitting. Along the way, as you admire the spectacular scenery and the remarkable blue Aegean waters, you can enjoy music of your choice.

A selection of complimentary house wine and soft drinks are also offered. The next stop is the archaeological site of Delos, where you’ll have approximately 1.5 to 2 hours at your disposal to explore the island with a professional English-speaking guide. According to mythology, Delos was the birthplace of Apollo, the god of daylight and of music and his twin sister Artemis, the goddess of night light and hunting. The sanctuary dedicated to Apollo and Artemis surrounded by a Hellenic city of about 30,000 inhabitants, the monuments, and impressive mosaics from the Archaic, the Classical, and the Hellenistic periods are certainly worth exploring. Delos was inhabited between 2500 and 69 BC, and was a famous religious center as well as a major commercial center. It was proclaimed a tax-free port and due to its exceptionally favorable geographical location, became the hub of the transit trade between the eastern and western, and northern and southern Mediterranean. In 1990 the whole island of Delos was designated a World Cultural Property and is protected by UNESCO. Visit the museum and walk up Mount Kynthos, which at 367 feet (112 meters) provides stunning views of the surrounding Cycladic islands. At the end of the trip, sail back to Mykonos.

The tour we took was a great way to see some of santorini’s best highlights as well a a few hidden gems. The warm and welcoming team at Santorini wine stories were an awesome part of the experience! The small group size and local knowledge you will get on this tour makes it quite special and George and Tonya do a fantastic job of sharing their love for Santorini with their guests. Book a tour with them and you will have a wonderful day!

Maria was a terrific tour guide. She was professional, sweet and funny. We received a nice introduction to the different areas of the island. I would have liked to be given more information about the Akrotiri archaeological site, and perhaps more time. We actually missed the Red Beach walk because we were trying to read all of the postings in the Akrotiri exhibit. But overall, a well-organized tour and a beautiful experience.

Amazing experience. So relaxed and informative, it was a beautiful evening exploring the family garden and enjoying their homemade products. Highly recommend.

This was a great way to spend our first evening in Naxos. The food and spirits were delicious and plentiful, and Natasha, our guide, was wonderful.

Ari was an incredible guide and the tour was the best we have had!
