    Mykonos, Greece, has been popular with the LGBT community of the world for generations. The town offers gay bars, hotels and even gay beaches. Follow the rainbow flag to the right side of Elia beach, or visit Agrari beach, which is 'clothing optional'.

This tour was amazing. It definitely exceeded my expectations. Our guide, Matthew, was great. Personable and easy going and gave great info about the different parts of the island we visited. We stopped at a local farm for some snacks and got to see the animals. For anyone visiting Mykonos, I highly recommend this tour as you get to see more than just Mykonos Town.

Fabulous tour, Stradis was such a friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining guide, while Pavlos the driver kept us feeling safe. We went to lovely beaches that the tour buses couldn't visit and finished at the Siti farm with a delicious tasting of local raki and homemade snacks.

Guide was very knowledgeable. He showed us a lot of the island and gave us the history. Very friendly and nice. It was a small group which made the experience that much better. So glad we chose this tour vs the cruise one as we saw more of the island.

The local provider pick me up at my Hotel on a timely manner and started the tour immediately.

Easy boarding in the old port of Mykonos. Pleasant crossing.
