This trip was so badly organized and such a waste of money!!
The tour began with hotel pick-ups and drop-offs for those who organized it. Please beware that the default tour does not include the hotel transfers in the price and you need to pay extra to have this service. It is chaotic and poorly organized and the tour guide did not know we had booked the transfers despite paying for it. Also it is sensible to have an idea of the cost as the transfer company tries to fleece you. The guy asked us to pay 40 Euros despite my voucher clearly stating that this was just 28 Euros. After an argument over this, he finally agreed to honour the voucher. There are many other local tour companies who include the hotel transfers for a better price.
The tour itself began in Fabrica Square waiting around for 30 minutes for people to arrive from their different hotels - then we did a walk around the old town with the guide. She pointed out the narrow streets and stories behind the town. We also saw Petros the Pelican and the magnificent windmills of Mykonos. This was the best part of the tour.
Then we did a 1 hour bus drive around town with the guide trying her best to make the sights seem interesting but there is nothing great to see barring a couple of old churches and some other old buildings. The stop at Ano Mera is not worth the hype and the monastery is very ordinary - unless you are the religious type.
Finally, the tour took us to Kalafatis beach where we had a laughable 20 minutes to walk around or splash in the water. There is no point in taking us to the beach if we do not get time to explore it and see it. Beware of the exhorbitant hotels nearby which charge you for even using the deck chairs - some charge around 40 Euros to use their beach chairs which is ridiculous.
Overall - the tour is not worth the money - considering you need to pay extra for the hotel transfers which are chaotic and badly organized. There are other local tour providers who would do a better job here for half the price. The tour itself is not worth it considering that barring the picturesque old town, there is not much else worth raving about. The 20 minute stop at the beach was a joke and not worth it. Please book a similar tour with other providers - not worth your money!!
Beautiful island! Nice tour but a little bit short to see everything that is to see. We had to run to finish our schedule. Next time I would recommend a full day tour and private is better because there were like 20 people. But the tour was ok if you don't have much time.
Great Tour. Our guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. Beautiful views of the windmills and Little Venice. Bus ride comfortable and gives a look at the island. Use the tour as a guide for your personal exploration. Tips- wear comfortable shoes. May be a little windy. When shopping a little bargaining helps.
