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.

Anastasia was AWESOME! Not only was she punctual (and I mean, arrived EXACTLY at 1030am), but she was kind, knowledgeable and funny. My partner and I missed “season” by a couple of weeks and the day of the tour was cold and rainy, but we still felt like this tour made our time in Mykonos a really enjoyable experience. Would recommend specifically requesting Anastasia if you can. She’s the best!

Very good, informative tour with a lot of interesting facts about the history and way of living in Mykonos. The tour gives you an overview of the island (landscape, local architecture). We saw several nice beaches as well as the center of the island. The snack and drink was also nice.

The half day tour of Mykonos was excellent. Our guide Anastasia was engaging, and knowledgeable. She pointed out all the sights and the highlight of the tour was the organic farm. The guide there gave all of us a glimpse of the local culture of conservation and harmony with the environment which was refreshing. I am so glad I got an opportunity to experience the great commentary of Anastasia and get in touch with the local culture.
