Discover Αuthentic Mykonos Tour
We will depart in the morning at 10:00 a.m. from your hotel to enjoy the four (4) hour tour around the island from a different point of view, full of traditional and authentic images and experiences. Our first stop will be the picturesque small port of St. Ioannis, an area which was named after a small church dedicated to Saint Ioannis and one of great historical significance. We will visit the church, along with the Saint's cell where the annual fair in his name is also being held. The small port in front of us is the starting point of the local fishing boats which are protected here from the island's strong north winds.
Right afterwards we will depart towards our return to the island's town, passing first close to Mykonos' airport, where we will have a panoramic view of the airport's runway and perhaps we are lucky enough to catch a plane taking off or landing. Leaving the airport behind us, we will be headed towards the eastern part of the island and pass through one entirely different scenery, one of the island's most typical agricultural and stock raising areas, where we will observe small local cultivated fields and even some domestic animals in local family owned farms.
After capturing all these images of Mykonian countryside and its lifestyle, we will reach the farm of the Mykonian Spiti, where we will be guided by our escort and always under the directions of the farm's superintendent. Whoever wishes may also use the farm's tools and get involved with the farming work and tasks in co-operation with the superintendent. Take this opportunity to get closer to the domestic animals and the farm's traditional organic cultivation. While there you will be offered a snack light lunch consisting of bread, tomatoes, kopanisti, cucumbers and poor man’s black olives, along with traditional raki.
Next we will head towards the Ano Mera village's colorful square, where one of the island's two monasteries is located ("Panagia Tourliani") and we will be guided through its chambers. You can also take a glimpse at the nearby open air market with vegetables and other local products before our departure from the village.
As we continue our tour, we will be passing by some of the most distant beaches of Mykonos, named "Kalo Livadi", "Kalafati" and "Aghia Anna" where we will have a short photo stop. Our next destination will be the abandoned establishment of the now inoperative mines of Mykonos. Until some years ago useful lignite was extracted here from the soil to be used in various ways. Up next we will reach the beautiful narrow streets of Mau, at the end of which the Mykonos dam is located, constructed to meet the needs of the island in water, and visit also one of the most magnificent northern beaches named "Fokos".
Right after, we will proceed to a very well known site where almost all the island's visitors have made a stop, in order to capture a panoramic Mykonos Town photo shooting. Following the picture taking we will drive you back to your hotel or a location of your choice.
Optional Walking tour of Mykonos Town
For the participants that have purchased the walking tour of Mykonos town, our tour will start at the well known location of "Remezzo" close to the old port and we will be headed to "Paraportiani", the church which is considered the island's symbol and walk along its magnificent waterfront full of small shops and traditional coffee shops and ouzo bars and clubs.
After being guided in the "Paraportiani" magnificent church, we will see the Castle, the Small Venice and Alefkandra area, the Metropolitan Church and the breathtaking unique windmills of the island. We will follow the crowded cosmopolitan small streets of Matoyiannia where we will stroll through the narrow streets with the numerous international level fashion houses.
Having being satisfied by capturing all this unique experience, we will return to the old port where you will board our transfer bus to take you to your hotel.
