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.

Sailing Cruises in Cyclades

3. Sailing Cruises in Cyclades

Ι have a great love for the sea and I enjoy sharing my expanded knowledge of islands, private bays, beautiful ports, restaurants and marinas with friends and visitors. I am constantly passionate about keeping the Greek traditions alive and admiring the timeless beauty of the islands where I was born. I have devoted my life to the sea, as my sailing boat is also my home for the last 10 years. I want my visitors to feel the same authentic Aegean experience of our forefathers. The boat can fit up to 8 guests for any charters who can be accommodated in 4 cabins. I will be your captain on board and my goal is to make my guests enjoy the cruise to the fullest. I feel excited every time I am asked to go on a trip around Cyclades. Even after my 15-years of experience in marine tourism, I still enjoy every moment in the sea, which is totally liberating!

excellent, we discovered places forgotten by the large crowd, a feast for the eyes, the mind and the taste buds with stops to taste local specialties. Do not hesitate any longer apart from the inconvenience of transport between Mykonos and Tinos and the very late return due to the wind, everything was perfect

A very authentic visit and a guide, Valentina, passionate about knowledge and very friendly. Far from the hectic atmosphere of Mykonos, Tinos is an island with beautiful landscapes and this day was one of our favorites in the Cyclades.

Staying in Mykonos, I really enjoyed this day excursion which allows me to discover Tinos and its many facets. The size of the group: 5 people, allowed us to go at our own pace and in complete relaxation.

We were a small group of 5 and it was very intimate. Liza our tour guide was fantastic, her passion, knowledge and friendly nature made our tour very enjoyed

Very interesting experience, beautiful setting in a very nice area of Tinos.
