Amazing experience!! Our guide was a very nice lady who took care of all of us during the tour under the sun and with a very high temperature. She was very interactive when giving her explanations. And the way she explained it all was so interesting, even with such hot day you just wanted her to keep talking and follow her through the complex. I would go back and do it again! And I strongly recommend everyone thinking of taking the tour to do so! Also, they had a very nice old man selling water in the boat, so you could buy in case you didn’t bring, and same when going back, but if you ran out of water! The price was just 0,5€!!! Never seen before!! It’s the supermarket price!! Loved the fact they didn’t even try to take advantage of being the only ones selling water!! Amazing experience every detail was amazing!!
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. Then a short ride will take you from the small dock to the sailing yacht anchored out in Agios Ioannis bay. 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. Relax on deck, sunbathe, and hear ab...

We really enjoyed our trip to Delos. Our guide was really knowledgeable and engaging.
Climb aboard a boat to discover the so-called "Cycladic Sisters" of Mykonos, Delos and Rhenia. Depart from Mykonos and set sail for the ancient site of Delos island. Upon arrival, you can stay on board, swim in the blue and green waters or disembark for a 2-hour tour of the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site. Continue to the mesmerizing beaches of Rhenia. Enjoy some free time at the uninhabited island and truly let go! Swim and snorkel in the crystal-clear waters. Discover sandy coves and make use of the uncrowded beaches before your return cruise to Mykonos.
Really great experience! The swimming spot was great, despite the winds the boat sailed smoothly (my partner is very prone to sea sickness but had no problems). The food wasn't amazing but it was good and unlimited, we had a full boat but I had plenty to eat. Free wine with lunch! The ruins themselves on Delos were pretty good but be prepared for a hike with no shade - they did give us a water each which was nice. Bring sunscreen! A great time!
Departing from the old port of Mykonos, relax on the 40 minute boat cruise, feel the sea breeze and view the island of Rhenia from a distance. When you reach the island of Delos you have a few hours to explore at your own pace. The entry ticket to the site is not included in this price but you can easily obtain one at the entrance, along with a guide if you wish. Later you will use the same ticket to board the boat and get transferred back to the old port of Mykonos after a day discovering an ancient civilization.
Ticket was cheaper to buy in a ticket booth on the sore, unfortunately I didn’t expect that. Stay on the island is too short . But this is only boat going there.. so I am glad I got there at least. Thank You.
Join a morning boat cruise starting from Mykonos and taking you to the islands of Delos and Rhenia. At 9:30 AM, set sail from Ag Ioannis port to Delos island, arriving at 10:30 AM. Have the chance to walk on the ancient area of the island and visit the renowned archaeological museum. For those who don't feel like sightseeing, enjoy the sea and the sun and relax on the boat's comfortable deck. At approximately 12:15 PM the boat departs towards Rhenia island for swimming and BBQ meal on board. Enjoy the warm Greek sun and dive into the beautiful crystal clear waters of the area. Use the snorkeling equipment that is provided on board to explore the deep waters. At approximately 2:45 PM, the captain sets sail back to Mykonos.
So much fun. The food was really good, crew was super friendly, loved our tour guide on Delos Island

Had a great time with my 10 year old on this catamaran excursion. Pickup was on time with only one other stop prior to arriving at the dock. Catamaran was nice and clean. Captain seemed knowledgeable. Anchored of Rhenia and it was absolutely beautiful. Lunch was average. Great experience if you love being on the water.
