Highlights of Mykonos
Mykonos is fast becoming THE place to party and play in the Greek Islands. Hop on the bus and take a scenic journey through the Island of the Winds to Agios Ionnis, Kalafatis, Ano Mera and Little Venice. Along the way you will see the Panagia Tourliani and Church of Panagia Paraportiani.
Your tour begins with a pleasant ride to Agios Ionnis, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the coastline and nearby Delos Island. From there you will head to the pristine beaches of Kalafatis where you can dip your toes in the crystal clear waters.
Stroll around the tavern-lined square in the charming village of Ano Mera and visit the 16th century Panagia Tourliani monastery with its massive baroque altar screen. From there you will meander through the narrow, white-washed streets of Mykonos Town as you soak up the beauty of this early Cycladic fishing village. Gaze up at the legendary windmills and snap photos of the seaside buildings in Little Venice.
The Church of Panagia Paraportiani will beckon you with its eclectic mix of Byzantine, traditional, vernacular and western styles. Built beginning in the 15th century, this popular church is actually four churches in one, and is the most photographed church in Mykonos. Book now and bring your camera to Mykonos for a comprehensive look at this jewel of the Greek Islands.

Somehow, we were either the only ones who showed up for this or maybe the only ones who signed up for it. Either way, we got a private tour! Our tour guide, Linda, was phenomenal!! She was from the UK but lived in Mykonos many years. She drove us all over the island and showed us so many sights. The lighthouse was amazing - the view!! She taught us some Greek history and culture. Overall a spectacular time!
A wealth of information. Be ready to get a brain full. Love the special places he took us. The van was comfortable. Loved the town of Mykonos and stories about why allies exist, the bakery and so much more. Lots of walking but fine for this Ole gal. Only suggestions. Bad directions as to where to meet up in the morning. That needs to be revised.

This was probably the best tour we took on our recent Royal Caribbean cruise. Our guide, Linda, who is a British ex-pat and has lived-in Mykonos full time for the past six years, was a font of knowledge about the island and was able to preempt most of the more obvious touristy questions with her description of things as we drove around the island. Speaking of the drive, we greatly enjoyed the fact that we got to see many different aspects of Mykonos, from the cliffs and lighthouse, a village, a popular beach and then Mykonos Town proper, with its winding whitewashed streets, and culminating at the windmills. If there is one regret it is that we did not have any free time to shop on our own, but we had fortunately done some of that between arrival and the start of the tour, so we were able to get a couple of mementos, but nothing more. Still, overall it was well worth the time and money and we recommend both the tour and guide highly.

Michelle gave us the best tour of Mykonos! She's lived on the island for 30 years, and took us to experience many places, especially her favorite off-the-main-roads locations. My husband and I agreed this was an outstanding tour!

Bryan was our guide and he made it the most enjoyable land excursion of our cruise. He speaks American English perfectly because he is an American expat. He has lived on Mykonos for decades and gives you not just the current information but explained how the place has changed. He went out of his way to accommodate my wife who has difficulty walking. Don’t miss this tour.
