Our guide was great, provided so much information we never would have known without him. He helped navigate the winding streets and was a great quick overview tour. would have loved more time but since we were on a cruise visit, this was perfect!

Delightful two-hour downtown tour of Mykonos
Connie_R, Sep 2023
We loved walking around the town of Mykonos with Eleonora, our guide. She was so kind and informative. She made the tour effortless as there were so many different paths to take. We loved the theater and and all the churches and beautiful floral trees. Thanks to Eleonora, we have such lovely pictures of all the beautiful sites. We can’t wait to share them with our family and friends upon our return. Once the tour had ended, Eleonora did not leave us until she was sure we were securely on our way back to our ship. We highly recommend taking a walking tour with Eleonora! Thank you for some beautiful memories!

Pako was amazing! He gave us an incredible tour and was very warm and welcoming. Mykonos-old town is beautiful and the history that we were able to see was worth the walking. I highly suggest this tour and make sure you get Pako!

Knowledgeable Guide

Dora was great… the tour was a short and comfortable two hours, which was perfect for us. We did not want to spend too much time out in the blazing sun. She gave us the major sites with lots of great background and history. She even explained a bit about the local politics, and Greece in general, which was very interesting. Dora also used to work as a concierge, so she had great recommendations for shopping and restaurants!

Expert Tour Guide, Great Tour

Our guide, Dora, was very knowledgeable about the history of the island of Mykonos. She even showed us where famous movies were filmed on the island. Dora navigated us through the maze of the shops in the center city. We truly enjoyed the tour and her company. Everything was perfect. Highly recommend!!

A Surprise Behind Every Turn
MaryAnn_G, May 2023
Our guide knew the streets of Mykonos like the back of his hand. We covered a LOT of ground! We learned so much about the little churches, the town heroine, local art, thevoldest bakery, and history behind the windmills.
Loved it!

Experiencing Mykonos like...
Gina_N, Nov 2022
Experiencing Mykonos like a local was very nice. We were able to see the local back streets and what it was slike to live there versus only seeing the tourist spots. Such a beautiful place to explore!
Great Experience!!

Fantastic tour! Paco was a brilliant guide. He avoided the crowds and took us to the top places. Also a brilliant recommendation for lunch. Thank you so much Paco.
Beautiful morning in Mykonos
8 of us had the most wonderful time on this walking tour. Informative and excellent. Would highly recommend.
Excellent first time visit
Lea_C, May 2022
What an excellent way to see Mykonos for the first time. Our cruise ship was lucky enough to dock at the new cruise port (vs tendering) and we had a free shuttle to the town center where we met our guide Paco. He doesn’t just show you the ‘big attractions’, he takes you down the back streets and hidden areas of the city so you can really get a good idea of day to day life on this beautiful island. The bougainvillea are beginning to bloom and what gorgeous color!! We saw the windmills, walked thru some amazing bars/restaurants right on the water that I’m sure come alive at night as well as he took us to the very top spot of the island to get some amazing pictures. He even found us a little private family chapel that was open today so we could understand how most worship here. He was great at explaining culture, day to day life and answered our many questions with patience. Fantastic day!!! Just a note- If you do ‘dock’ at the new port, do NOT try to walk to town center as there are no safe sidewalks once you get past the port. The cruise shuttle will take you right to the spot to meet the guide. Be sure to try the pork gyros- no lamb in site. Wear good tennis shoes as you will be doing some climbing!
