Full description

Discover a more authentic side to Mykonos on a unique half-day island tour. Head to the port of St. Ioannis to see the church and cell where the saint lived. Then, get a stunning view of the airport before going to the village of Ano Mera. Pass local farms to get a glimpse at island life. Learn more about the folk traditions on a guided tour of the Mykonian Spiti farm, where you will be invited to take part in traditional farming activities and can meet some of the animals. Explore the chambers of the Panagia Tourliani monastery in the village square, and join the locals at the open-air market.

Enjoy a light lunch before leaving Ano Mera to discover hidden beaches, such as Kalo Livadi, Kalafati and Agia Anna. See some of the abandoned mines where lignite was extracted from the soil. Stroll the narrow streets of Maou, where a dam was constructed to meet the island's irrigation needs. Take a souvenir photo of Mykonos town from a popular spot before the end of the tour services.

If you have a short stay in Mykonos and want to see a bit of the best beaches then this is the tour you need to do … They also take you to a beautiful local place for a nice meal which you must try !! The food was fresh and made with delicious local products … We had an amazing last stop at a beautiful viewing point for the best pictures of the island itself ….

We had a guide separate from the driver on this tour. That worked out perfect for getting a great interaction with our guide in Mykonos. We had a slight mixup on the port at which to meet. However, that didn’t slow us down at all. Our guide had great people skills and a great sense of humor. Although he wasn’t a licensed guide, he knew all the history and information to shared with us.

We had an absolute amazing time with Mario and Donna. They were so fun to be with for the tour and it was evident that they really did want us to have a good time and learn more about Mykonos. Highlights were the farm, driving around Mykonos (something we would not have done) and meeting our guides.
