Our tour guide is knowledgeable and ready to answer questions. She made sure that everyone was all accounted for before leaving one area to another. Touring us in and around the island made us know more about the Greeks’ life then and now. The walking tour was also great! She pointed out the different areas of interests and it’s historical significance. The driver was careful and cautious too, knowing how narrow and steep some of the road areas. The bus was clean and well cooled. Overall the tour was awesome! Itravel/GetYourGuide tours are easy to contact especially with chats or email if you have any questions. We were originally to be tendered to the old port but the cruise liner ended up docking at the new port. I was able to change the pick up place the day before and they were accommodating.

We learned a lot about Mykonos and saw a fair amount of the island. We really appreciated that our guide Andrea lives on the island and has been here for 32 years. Ano Mera was especially delightful. I wish we’d had more time there.

Great one day 'quickie' tour to get you acquainted with the island. It's fast-paced, so if you are a slow walker, or have mobility issues, then this is not the tour for you!

Very nice, informative, the pace was comfortable and our guide was outstanding!!

Had a fabulous guide and perfect weather. Mykonos is beautiful.
