Departure Point: Your hotel accommodation or your cruise ship port Dates: Daily Return point: Returns to original departure point (approx. 2:30pm)
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.

Mykonos was beautiful and this was a great tour. Got to see all the sites with a knowledgeable guide. The farm was something special. While at the monastery, my friends and I decided to skip going inside and grabbed something to eat and a restaurant located right by the church instead. Best pork I’ve ever had in my life!

It all started with the late pickup and continued to snowball. The walking tour was simply a walk with no tour component. Then the car tour was nothing as advertised, from the additional cost of snacks (advertised as 5€ but was 10-15€), the monastery was pointed out with no opportunity to explore it, in fact the guide said she wasn’t sure it was even open. The farm was a cow, some goats, and a small vineyard to look at with no tour or guide through it. The worst part was the guide. She was not sharing any info outside of the traffic, and why all buildings were white. Save your money, this was the absolute worst excursion.

A MUST TOUR!!!

Mario's was an excellent guide. He was through and followed up the history with great commentary. He was clearly very knowledgeable and made sure we got the most out of our experience. He was also concerned about that the wide range of guest abilities was integrated into the tour. The walk through the city and stop for Baklava and visit/tasting at the organic farm were wonderful.

The tour guide, Leo, was excellent.....provided good Mykonos historical information! The walking tours and site information was an excellent opportunity to discover Mykonos. We literally navigated and toured the primary points on the island. The tour provided solid information that served as a guide for the personal activities and beaches that we visited during the remainder of our stay in Mykonos. Definitely would pay for the tour again as a refresher for my next visit to Mykonos!

Very cheerful and friendly staff that were very helpful. They helped us change our flights, arranged shuttles. Room that we had was very spacious with a balcony that you could view Mykonos town. Hotel is very quiet, provides a delicious breakfast buffet with covered patio seating. To go to town or the bus stop is about a 10-12 minute walk.

Tour was very well run, picked us up and took us to a air conditioned bus for the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. The bus driver was phenomenal, the narrow roads and tight spaces he got us into was impressive. Picturesque views, the snack at the farm was well worth the 5 Euros. Overall a good tour, worth doing for first timers like us.

Great way to see Mykonos
Chris
, Nov 2021
Guide was nice and showed me over 1/2 the island of Mykonos in a 4 hour period. Beautiful sights of various beaches, churches and we ended up on a farm where the host served a light lunch with various drinks. Great way to see the animals. The guide took me to places, I haven’t thought of going , but enjoyed as a first time visitor. Nice job overall!

The tour was just average, and the communication about the add on of the walking tour and lunch was none existent. The tour was supposed to start at 9:00 but I didn’t get picked up until 10:00 and then the tour started at 10:15. The tour guide was knowledgeable. The tour was supposed to be 4 hours then I was supposed to do lunch and a 1 hour walking tour. They didn’t tell me the entire thing was supposed to gor until 19:00! Very, very poor communication!

Don’t take this tour waste of time and money.
Pamela_M

The tour pick up was exceedingly late and no thought was put into the planning we kept driving back and forth between Ornos and Fabrika, the drop off was no better. The length of the tour listed appears to include lateness, pick up and drop off, as it concluded at basically the time originally stated. But my real disappointment resided in “ 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”. There was no tour of the farm, we sat down and ate. The food was good but the farm was what I was interested in. No tour no tools no questions and answers. Also the monastery was not a guided tour as advertised. The bus was also too crowded for COVID-19.

Minivan was in poor...
Bruce_M
, Oct 2021
Minivan was in poor condition and tour was delayed due to difficulty locating two passengers. Not much to see in Mykonos or the guide did not really have anything of real interest to tell us. Go on a very warm day because the high winds cool the air.

A highly recommended tour! Had a great time.

I had a wonderful time on this tour. Gibson was an absolutely brilliant tour guide who really knew his stuff and kept the group invested and interested at all times. For me the visit to the farm and monastery were the highlights of the tour. It was great value for money in terms of what was actually covered and the price paid. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone. I had a fantastic time and it made my stay in Mykonos even more memorable! Efharisto Para Poli!

The tour was very insightful and the Tour Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Came to pick us up right at our hotel doorstep which was very convenient. We really learned about Authentic Mykonos by visiting different areas of the island, a farm, the monastery, Ano Mera and got to learn a lot about the infrastructure and beliefs of the Mykonians. The snack offered was delicious; the traditional Greek foods and beverages. It was a really rewarding experience and I can say that this tour really completed our stay on the island.

Would not recommend this tour a waste of money tour guide on the phone took me too a farm that was a bunch of dirt, didn’t follow the tour itinerary as road were closed not added anything in it place was drop off early without Any money returned very disappointed
icon Response from Host , Oct 2020
Client claim for the refund is not realistic. Our Guide was at the Hotel Alkyon at 09.50. He greeted the client and asked her to excuse him for the phone call he had to made. In any case – it was 10 min. before the agreed hour. After 5 min. client asked to start the tour and our guide ended his phone call. All itinerary operated as it is described on Viator. Non of the roads was closed. Client had a private tour no matter she booked a regular one. We are very surprised she found the Farm dirty. Does she have any photos to show? Tour ended at 13.45 and it was the client wish not to go to the last point – Panoramic Stop as it is only 100m from her hotel and she has already visited this place.

Great tour of the island. Our guide was very knowledgable of the island and we were able to see many little towns, a private chapel, a working farm/vineyard, several beaches and the appetizers at the end were wonderful. Thank you so much!
