We did this excursion with Yannis and were alone with him since there were cancellations. it was a perfect afternoon. We weren't expecting it but he speaks French and was very informative with us and we were able to visit a little less on the run than in a group and he took us to unplanned swimming spots. It's a good tour in 4 hours which allows you to see a lot of things.

Superb experience! Discover the island of Milos in its entirety and accompanied by a guide passionate about the Cyclades! I recommend this excursion which allows you to see all the points of the island in 4 hours. If you're not staying on the island for long or don't have transportation, this tour is perfect.

We had a wonderful day. The sea was perfect, the sky blue and a beautiful sun. The places we visited are beautiful, only by boat to get to know them. The crew was very attentive and kind, giving explanations about the places.

I would highly recommend the Archaelolgy & Culture Tour. The gentleman we had was a wealth of knowledge and took us all over Milos, including some hidden gems.

Tour of the island with a visit to the main sites and viewpoints Clear explanations Very friendly guide the most: speaks French
