Full description

Meet first outside the Ancient Theater of Milos. Begin your exploration of Milos Island by visiting Papafragas, a cluster of deep-sea inlets and sea caves. Discover the ancient settlement of Phylakopi at the base of a ravine that was shaped by volcanic activity. Learn more about this site which played a crucial part in the pre-history of the Cyclades and remained an active settlement until 1000 BC.

Continue with a short drive to Sarakiniko, an inlet of pure white rock formations sculpted by volcanic eruptions. Take a walk down the inlet so you can experience this one-of-a-kind beach and take some fantastic photos.

Travel along the northern coast towards picturesque Plaka and its cobbled streets and alleys. Explore a classic Cycladic “Chora” with white stone houses and bougainvillea. Walk through the village to admire its traditional architecture and its stunning view of the sea from the veranda of Panagia Korfiatissa, a beautiful 19th-century church. Taste some homemade sweets at the village’s famous local pastry shop, at your own expense.

Stop on the outskirts of Trypiti and stroll towards the recently restored marble Roman Amphitheater. Admire the views of this site from above and see seven entire seat rows with a lovely view of the bay.

Tour was terrific, learned about the island & saw many ancient sites as well as the islands gorgeous geography. We had a small group my husband & myself along with 2 lovely young men who were delightful to share a tour around the island with. Giannis was a WONDERFUL tour guide & since all four of us had already been to Plaka he modified the itinerary to include Mandrakia for us. Taking a tour like this meant we didn’t need to rent a car to see the islands sites and we learned alot we wouldn’t have on our own. He also picked us up & dropped us off at our hotel on Pallichiori which was likely a bit out of the way. We could not have enjoyed our day more! EFCHARISTO Giannis!

The tour was fantastic! We learned about the history, economics and geography of Milos. Our guide was knowledgeable and even told us about some secret swim spots. We were so grateful. We used the information we learned on the tour to plan the rest of our time in Milos.

We couldn’t expect a better experience. Yannis let us discover Milos in all its aspects: archeological, historical, cultural, gastronomic. He was a very friendly informative guide whose company we very much enjoyed and time flew by. Excellent tour. Very much recommended.
