What You Can Expect

Discover Authentic Mykonos


Your half-day island adventure begins with midmorning pickup at your hotel or the Mykonos cruise port. Start with a visit to the charming port town of St. Ioannis, where you can see fishing boats gathered in the harbor and visit the historic church where the town’s patron saint once lived and where an annual fair is held in his honor.

Next, get a more modern perspective with a stop at the Mykonos airport, offering a chance to see planes arriving and departing the island. Continue on to the the traditional village of Ano Mera, where you’ll be welcomed at an organic family farm. Get a personalized tour from the superintendent, including hands-on exploration of farming equipment and a chance to meet the livestock. Before leaving Ano Mera, see where locals shop at the open-air market and take a guided tour of the Panagia Tourliani monastery, one of only two on the island.

Drive by the unspoiled beaches of Kalo Livadi, Kalafati, and Aghia Ann, keeping your camera handy for a photo stop, and relax over a light Greek-style lunch or snack (depending on lunch option selected). Finally, take in a fantastic panoramic view of Mykonos Town before saying goodbye to your guide back at your hotel, the cruise port, or another central location of your choice. Alternatively, upgrade to include a guided walking tour of Mykonos Town.

Our tour guide, Kayla, was fantastic! As a young couple- we wanted time to explore Mykonos and this tour was everything we wanted and more! We got a chance to visit the best beaches, pet donkeys, and see some great views with time to shop! One of the best investments we’ve made.

This is a very different tour. You will get a perspective of the usual tourists vistas of Mykonos, and then you will see a farm and pet the donkeys, visit a small village and monastery, see a water-storage reservoir, a small church, and a beach. If you want to learn about the island apart from the jet-set villas, this is a good tour.

We were picked up at the port on time. The two guides and driver were friendly and didn't mind all the questions we gave them! The tour was excellent and plenty of time for photo stops. Covered all of the island. Recommend you do it too. Thank you so much for a brilliant tour.

Met at the Port exit by a delightful young lady, who did a great job as our guide for the next four hours. We took in a church by the beach, watched a plane land, toured a typical small Greek farm with its donkeys, sheep, goats, cows, enormous clean pig, rabbits, hens and jolly farmer, went in a 16th Century Monastery, had a delicious lunch at 'Taverna Apostolis' in a small market place and finally viewed the huge dam at the island's reservoir. All very leisurely and highly entertaining.

Enjoyable driving tour, and a way to see the non-tourist part of the island. Very narrow roads, so happy to have someone else driving.
Stops were not particularly exciting, but we saw everything the island had to offer. A good way to get way from the tourist and cruise line crowds and see a more relaxed Mykonos.
