No visit to Mykonos would be complete without visiting the nearby island of Delos, and seeing the remains of an incredible ancient civilization. During this Ancient Delos Private Family Tour you will be accompanied by a family-friendly guide. Under his guidance you will be able to explore this UNESCO World heritage site, first inhabited over 5000 years ago.

The island of Delos is about 30 minutes away from Mykonos by boat, and it is said that Apollo and Artemis were born here. Delos was considered to be the most sacred of all the islands during the Golden Age of Greece, and it was an important trading port in the 2nd century BC. Today, the remains of the Temple of Apollo, the Sanctuary of Artemis, an amphitheater, and a vast city still amaze modern visitors.

Our kid-friendly guide will make the visit to Delos an interesting and exciting one. As well as taking you to areas and highlighting aspects of the site you might never know about, they will also recount tales from Greek mythology. This helps bring the entire complex alive, helping you and the kids appreciate what life must have been like in the city all those years ago.

Besides walking around the site itself, this Ancient Delos Private Family Tour also includes a visit to the Museum. Inside, there are countless artefacts and exhibits discovered during the archaeological digs. The sculptures and vessels are particularly amazing considering how old they are! Finally, it will be time to return to Mykonos again, having visited one of the most outstanding UNESCO World Heritage sites in Greece.

In addition to this tour to Delos, you might want to consider other family tours on Mykonos. One idea for a pleasant afternoon trip, is a visit to a local farm on Mykonos which might appeal to the kids. Another, is a hands-on family cooking class, where you can learn to cook traditional Greek dishes, and enjoy tasting the results!
