A German-speaking guide leads this tour (or a guide with a German interpreter). A limited number of German guides and interpreters are available in this port; book early to avoid disappointment. This is not a bilingual tour; shore excursions guided in English are available at Explorations Central on our website.
Mykonos is perhaps the most famous of all the Greek islands, renowned today for its nightlife and beautiful beaches. Mykonos had substantial influence during the Greek War of Independence, before it was re-discovered as a picturesque location for filming.
From the port of Tourlos, you will visit the quaint villages of Ioannis, Ornos and Kalafatis. Continue to Ano Mera -- perhaps the most traditional of the island's villages.
Visit the Monastery of Panagia Tourliani, dedicated to the protector of Mykonos. It was founded in 1580, but the building you will see today dates only to the 18th century. Inside the chapel you will see various icons depicting scenes from the New Testament.
At the main square of Ano Mera, ouzo and Greek mezedes (snacks) will be served before you return to the port.
Modest attire is required; knees, shoulders and midriffs must be covered.
