There were some unpredictable events that impacted the tour like the speed boat breaking and the tour scheduled a plane instead and then once in the island we could only return by plane since the sea was too agitated. We had to pay extra for the return flight (half paid by us and half by tour company) but I think all of these were well communicated and managed. We loved the island, every little corner has its charm and beauty. Food was also pretty good! Our guide Iloana did an outstanding job of guiding us through the island, leading us to another beach by bus (which was awesome) and made sure everyone in the group was having a good time.

This was an amazing trip!!! Our tour leader Ioanna was the most sincere, helpful wonderful person!!!! She went above and beyond to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. I absolutely recommend this trip and would do it again next time!

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.

The sailors were very attentive and generous. They even offered us delicious food! Very good, I highly recommend!

A great way to get introduced to the world under the sea!
