There were some unpredictable events that impacted the tour like the speed boat breaking and the tour scheduled a plane instead and then once in the island we could only return by plane since the sea was too agitated. We had to pay extra for the return flight (half paid by us and half by tour company) but I think all of these were well communicated and managed. We loved the island, every little corner has its charm and beauty. Food was also pretty good! Our guide Iloana did an outstanding job of guiding us through the island, leading us to another beach by bus (which was awesome) and made sure everyone in the group was having a good time.

This tour was one of the best I had on my trip to the Greek Islands thanks to our tour guide. Andrea shared both historical facts and her personal experiences as a long time Mykonos resident. She answered all our questions and showed genuine interest in getting to know people from the group. Will definitely recommend her to anyone. As far as the service, bus was on time, she explained all the logistics of the tour and the time spent at the different locations was more than enough to admire the vista and take pictures.

A b mol, some Nicos had to wait for us in front of the Olia hotel, but he had no one, fortunately at the last moment we went to see and we found the boat. It's complicated to get to the new port, Not far but too much traffic and little sidewalk, like everywhere else in Mykonos by the sea.

This was an amazing trip!!! Our tour leader Ioanna was the most sincere, helpful wonderful person!!!! She went above and beyond to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. I absolutely recommend this trip and would do it again next time!

Lovely cruise experience. Very affordable and comfortable. Would definitely recommend!!
