Full description
Climb aboard in the new port of Tourlos on the north-west coast of Mykonos and cross the Aegean Sea to the neighboring island of Tinos to experience the authentic culture and traditional hospitality of Greece. Explore the namesake capital to see one of the most important churches in Greece at the Panagía Evangelístria, built around a miraculous icon to the Virgin Mary. Then, travel up to the women's monastery of Kechrovouni high in the mountains to get stunning views of the surroundings. Stroll through the traditional village of Volax to see the basket weavers at work and stop to take souvenir photos of the Venetian-era dovecotes in the valley. Marvel at the marble arts of Pyrgos and get some free time to enjoy a coffee in the shade of a plane tree on the main square before the return boat trip to Mykonos.

Very interesting excursion, highly recommended!

The meeting point was given by get your guide as 11 a.m., unfortunately nobody was there at this time. A call to the organizer then informed us that the correct time at the meeting point was 12 o'clock. It only started at 1:35 pm with the ferry. That was a bit annoying, but the whole thing was made up for by the great German-speaking support. We were the only Germans who had an exclusive and very informative travel guide, so to speak, who was responsible for the German information in addition to your colleague. we learned a lot and were also able to ask many questions. For this, a very special thank you! We really saw a lot and it was very informative. This excursion is highly recommended.

Awesome Day Trip From Mykonos

Highly recommend booking this day trip. Only hiccup I had was the voucher said to be at the port for 11:15am meet up. However when I called because no one was there yet, they said noon meet up. Regardless of that, the guide was very friendly, informative and really knew his stuff. Amazing time seeing so much of Tinos that you couldn't do without private transportation. I did this trip solo and it was great meeting new people on the tour, all who were friendly and outgoing from all over the world. Can't rave enough. Book it!
