Starting from the port of Mykonos, enjoy a tour around the island from a different point of view, full of traditional and authentic images and experiences. Your first stop will be at a popular site offering photographic panoramic views of Mykonos town, a must-see for all the island's visitors.
Following the picture taking, visit the picturesque small port of St. Ioannis, an area named after a small church of great historical significance dedicated to Saint John ("Ioannis" in Greek). You will visit the church, along with the Saint's cell, home of the annual fair. The small port is the launching point for local fishing boats, protected from the island's strong north winds.
You will then head towards the Mykonos airport offering another photographic panoramic opportunity, this time of the airport's runway. If you are lucky, you will catch a plane, taking off or landing. After a few shots of the runway, you will make your way towards Ano Mera Village driving through the island's agricultural and livestock raising areas. Ano Mera is best known as being one of the oldest, most quaint, and quiet villages found on Mykonos.
While at Ano Mera Village your guide will lead you through the village's colorful square and the monastery of Panagia Tourliani, built in 1542 and restored in 1767. You will have the opportunity to join a guide for a walk through the monastery chambers if you so choose.
After capturing the images of Mykonian countryside and its lifestyle, you will visit the farm of the Mykonian Spiti, where an escort and the farm's superintendent will oversee your stay. Whoever wishes may also use the farm's tools and get involved with the farming work and tasks in cooperation with the superintendent. Take this opportunity to get closer to the domestic animals and the farm's traditional organic cultivation. A light snack will be offered to all visitors, consisting of local products from the conventional farm itself.
Upon leaving the traditional farm, head over to Kalo Livadi, Kalafati, and Aghia Anna, the most distant and beautiful beaches in all of Mykonos for a few more photo opportunities.
To close out your tour, you will be driven back to your ship with lasting memories of the fantastic time spent on Mykonos.
