Wonderful day trip with Bill our local guide. He is absolutely amazing. Bill took us to all the beautiful beaches In Mykonos, showed us the Monastery and inside, took us to to the lighthouse for the view. We visited so many hidden beaches. Bill is extremely knowledgeable that he gave us detail account of the local hotels, how the 5 star resorts were built from Cliff side. He took us to the most delicious seafood restaurant on the Island Apaggios. He ended our incredible day on the cliff overlooking the most beautiful sunset on the island. We are so fortunate to travel on the low season with no competition with other tourists that Bill took his time with us ensuring we had the best experience. Thank you Bill and Get your guide for this incredible tour!!!!

Great tour! Drove around the island with adequate stops for pictures and some free time. Tour guide was very informative. We love small tour groups as the small vans have easy access to off the road views. Also fed a donkey at a stop as it was the mascot if the road.

Informative tour with excellent guide - the ruins were awesome to see, and views were also gorgeous, thank you for a wonderful experience!
