This tour was one of the best I had on my trip to the Greek Islands thanks to our tour guide. Andrea shared both historical facts and her personal experiences as a long time Mykonos resident. She answered all our questions and showed genuine interest in getting to know people from the group. Will definitely recommend her to anyone. As far as the service, bus was on time, she explained all the logistics of the tour and the time spent at the different locations was more than enough to admire the vista and take pictures.

The tour takes you to the most beautiful and remote corners of Mykonos. Beautiful and far away from mass tourism. The 4x4s are really fun, we even had one to ourselves.

Andrea was an excellent tour guide. Much insight into life on the island. Very interesting. Highly recommend this tour.

Nice, affordable, quick trip to the lighthouse. Spectacular views! Well worth it!

Andrea was a great guide - interesting info on Mykonos.
