Your half-day island adventure begins with midmorning pickup at your hotel or the Mykonos cruise port.

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.

Great tour showcasing the whole island!
Cheryl_K, May 2024
This tour showcased all parts of the island, both the upmarket tourist areas & very interesting residential areas. The most memorable part of the tour was our visit to the farm which produced their food & wine on-site. The meal & wine were fabulous but the best part was having the owner of the farm share his stories of the farm & his produce.
Great authentic experience
Michelle_A, May 2024

Don’t miss this fun tour!

This tour was awesome and...
Nazin_A, Mar 2024
This tour was awesome and very accommodating for my mom who had mobility issues. It was nice to see the "not so popular" part of the beautiful island, because the things we saw were just as nice. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable & really nice, always taking photos for my mom. I would highly suggest this tour!

Day in Mykonos
jeane_c, Nov 2023
Nice tour with good guide. Less time stopping for lunch and more actual tour time would be more appropriate.

Mykonos for a complete day
Robert_B, Nov 2023
We travelled throughout the island to many viewpoints and interesting sections of the island. It was nice to be away from the tourist section at the cruise port. Pick up had some issues with the tour needing to go to both cruise ports (old and new), however all was resolved quickly thru a couple of texts with customer service (worked nicely). Later after the tour their was plenty of time to experience the old port area.

Thank you for your feedback & excellent review. We are glad to know that you enjoyed your tour despite the adversities that may occur. Kind regards Mykonos Excursions
This tour operator needs to grow a conscience and learn to do what is right
john_c, Oct 2023
We never got to do the tour because our cruise ship did not stop At Mykonos. Long story short, We made our reservation within 24 hours of the tour date and shortly after booking it we realized that we made an mistake. We then immediately called the tour operator and explained the honest mistake but they basically said too bad and refused to refund the charge. This was totally wrong and not the right thing to do since the tour operator was notified of our mistake shortly after the booking was made.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Hello! Can you please inform us specify the date of the tour?

Bad news
Jan_H, Oct 2023
Bad memory of being left at the pier, standing in hot sun for 45 minutes with no driver. Farm house meal was the best part of experience. Nasty fellow travelers. We did not get picked up at pier even though on time. Met group at first site a d get yelled at for sitting down in empty seats! Altogether very unpleasant excursion
Response from Host, Jan 2024
We apologize for your frustrating experience, although we are glad you enjoyed the farm. Fellow travelers are a factor that is not easily manageable, nevertheless your feedback will help us improve the experience and offer our best of services. Thank you very much, Mykonos Excursions.
Worth doing
Myriam_C, Oct 2023
This was our second visit to Mykonos, so we wanted to get out of the tourist city to see something different. This was a very nice tour. Very informative. Definitely worth doing if you want to get out of the touristy area.

We are glad to know that you enjoy your tour overall. Thank you very much for your excellent review and recommendation. Kind regards Mykonos Excursions
Great Tour and tour guide..... Go to the farm!
Roe_S, Oct 2023
The farm!!!! The restaurant owner made the excursion soooo worth it! Even though we went at the beginning of off season and the streets of Mykonos were emply, we enjoyed hearing about the history of the island as well as the "Who's Who" that visits the island. This tour is a great introduction to Mykonos but only makes you want to come back for more. The Tour Guide was excellent!
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Your review finds us really thankful. We appreciate your feedback. Kind regards, Mykonos Excursions

The tour was awesome! The guide was very informative of the island and the culture. The beach that we were taken to was crystal clear. The lunch, although not required, was amazing. Well worth the money and time!

Wonderful Mykonos
Vicki_G, Oct 2023
This was a fantastic smallish group tour that had something for everyone. The guide was very informative and we learned a lot about Mykonos history and culture. The lunch was scrumptious and two of us shared the full meal option.

Best Mykanos Tour
GANESH_R, Oct 2023
Though the tour operator Jude sent conflicting meeting point information, We really loved this tour. Tour guide Theodore was excellent with her knowledge about all important sites. A visit to the Farm for lunch was enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour.

Great tour
Kathy_D, Oct 2023
Our tour guide was awesome!!! She was engaging, informative, and wanted to ensure we had a great tour. Loved the meal with the farmer. The food and wine were delicious. The farmer was very entertaining. He had us all make a line and dance in a grapevine pattern at the end of our meal as we were leaving.

Discover Authentic Mykonos
Emelita_G, Oct 2023
The tour title is discover Authentic Mykonos. The full itinerary included a visit to a farm and included a light lunch. We did not see the farm nor got the light lunch. I booked 36 passengers on this tour and felt like we did not get the full tour. However, we did see most of what we were supposed to see. Perhaps I rate it too low, so I will change it to 7 everyone knew about the portion that was omitted so they asked me what happened. I asked the tour guide regarding the light lunch, she said there was none and recommended To eat lunch on our own where the monetary was located.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
We are glad you enjoyed the most out of the tour & we would also like to thank you about the review despite the omitted part. Your feedback is really helpful for our improvement. Thank you, Mykonos Excursions
A great way to spend a few hours in Mykonos!
Minerva_F, Oct 2023
We enjoyed seeing a few quieter parts of Mykonos, away from the hustle and bustle of Mykonos town. But the most memorable element of the tour were the interesting bits of information and anecdotes from our guide. She really knows the island and was full of all sorts of fun facts.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
We are glad to know that you enjoyed your tour. Thank you very much for your excellent review and kind comments. Kind regards, Mykonos Excursions
