The tour is nice for a day experience and to say that you’ve been to Mykonos. Tour guide was phenomenal and was super sweet. The cons are that this is this is a party town and you visit it during the day, the only things you can really do is either walk around and visit shops, or go to a restaurant, there’s no local beach within that area that you can hop over really. It’s windy, and very small to explore. So we ended up paying $50 euros each to go to the excursion they planned to do within the excursion - which was to go to Super Paradise Beach. The beach was OK - not worth $50 each and we were disappointed with just how little we really could do in Mykonos - it’s just in a “fancy” overpriced resort with bad food. Overall it was nice for the experience and to explore something new but wouldn’t really go again.

We were picked up from the hotel despite the indication of a different meeting point when booking - which was very pleasant for us. As part of the tour, you will be driven to the port (ferry) by car (duration approx. 3 hours). Afterwards you take a taxi (boat) to the city. There the guide took us across the harbor to the well-known windmills of Mykonos. You could then either pay a supplement of 50 euros (for bus + sun bed, umbrella and 1 drink) or stay in the city. We decided not to go to the beach and explore the city. In any case, there is enough time to explore Mykonos and to eat comfortably. For the return trip, a meeting point was agreed in advance and everything was driven back according to the arrival. Of course, you could also organize this yourself without a tour. However, I have to say that it was very helpful to have a guide with me, especially on the ferry (a lot of people) (assigned seats were often occupied).

Honestly, I really liked this tour, very organized and totally worth it. I only gave it 4 stars, because I hoped for the tour guides to explain the site that they we were visiting in Mykonos. They only said to take pictures, but not why they were famous. But again, TOTALLY WORTH IT.
