We booked just the transfer ticket and had our own tour book downloaded. There is a wait to buy entry tickets on the island once you arrive. Tour guide group probably got about a 10 minute head start on us. We started in the opposite direction recommended and didn’t have crowds to deal with and were able to enjoy the ruins without waiting for a large group to see things.

Ferry to Delos. Booking is for both ferries, to Delos and back to Mykonos, and you can choose which times you will leave and come back. There were three trips a day when we went, first leaves Delos at 10AM and first comes back to Mykonos at 1:30PM. Ferry departures are every one and a half hours or so.

The departure could have been offered to choose between the old and the new port. The explanations of the guide were interesting. The free time is not enough to browse all that remains after the visit. It would be nice if it was a little longer. The boat trips are very pleasant.

Great excursion to Delos, but bad information, it gave us a meeting point in the new port and it was in the old port, we went there for nothing, having the old port very close to the apartment

Good service, comfortable seats. Kindness of staff.
