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.

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.

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!

This tour was a wonderful way to learn more about Mykonos. Anastasia did a wonderful job explaining the island and showing us different areas that we would not have seen otherwise. I was so happy after the tour and would recommend to all traveling to Mykonos. The highlights for me were definitely going to the farm to try the delicious food and feed the goats.

Great way to see such a beautiful island

Gibson arrived promptly and we got right under way. Oh so personable and pleasant and full of interesting information. Gibson was a most outstanding tour guide with a very solid knowledge of the area and each place we visited . (Of course, you would expect such - but there are no guarantees. ) While a consummate professional, he was also personable and endearing and made us feel so comfortable. Equally impressive was Gibson’s command of both Greek and English (he was African-born) and had only learned Greek within the past year a half. The tour itself had such a great variety of stops along the way - for photos or just “taking in” the moment - and we couldn’t have been happier with the whole experience and tour guide.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun. Our small group tour of Mykonos took us around the island to see the amazing views, beaches, and churches. We really enjoyed our stop at the farm for garden fresh lunch under outdoor arbour and a visit with the donkeys and goats. Thanks

We had six different tours on our cruise port of calls and this was by far the worst one. The van was late picking up our group.It had a distorted sound system where you couldn't make out what was being talked about. No air conditioning. The driver left with the vehicle stranding us for a while. If it was just the tour guide on a private walking tour it would have been great, she was informative, upbeat and charming

We had a group of seven traveling to Mykonos with two pick up points. We were greeted on time at both locations. Our tour guide Anastasia was phenomenal. She was funny, engaging and knowledgeable. She kept our attention from beginning to end. The tour was fantastic.

A bit hard to find our tour guide, but once we did, it was fabulous. Our guide was of course from the region and was very knowledgeable. The farm tour was fun, and the owners very hospitable and the mini meal they served with fresh tomatoes and cheese and stuffed grape leaves was so fresh and delicious. (Be sure you have each others' phone info in case you can't quickly find your guide.)
