Athens: 4-Day Self-Guided Tour of Mykonos and Santorini

1. Athens: 4-Day Self-Guided Tour of Mykonos and Santorini

Relax on a 4-day self-guided tour of Mykonos and Santorini from Athens, and experience 2 of the most famous islands of the Aegean. Discover the sugarcube houses and historic windmills of Mykonos, and marvel at the black sand beaches of Santorini, where the sunsets are among the most fabled of the Cyclades. The tour is unescorted, allowing you to explore at your own pace, with round-trip transfers, ferry crossings, and 3-star accommodation (upgrades available) as part of the package. Day 1: A driver will pick you up from your hotel in Athens for a comfortable transfer to Piraeus Port. Here, embark on a 5-hour boat trip to Mykonos Port. Upon arrival, transfer to your 3-star hotel accommodation, and spend the rest of the day at leisure. Explore the top attractions of the party island, seeing the windmills near the harbor of Alefkandra. Wander the whitewashed streets, where upscale boutiques and charming cafés await. Marvel at tiny churches, and relax on the beach. In the evening, the village of Mykonos comes alive to the sound of chilled out music in the Little Venice neighborhood, while beach parties are popular across the island. Day 2: Transfer to Mykonos Port and board the ferry for the scenic crossing to Santorini. Upon arrival at Santorini Port, transfer to your hotel accommodation, and spend the rest of the day at leisure. Santorini is the southernmost of the Cyclades islands and considered one of the most romantic islands in the world. Admire beautiful white churches with cobalt blue domes, and the pretty pink bougainvillea and colorful flower pots of the homes and gardens. Day 3: Enjoy a day at leisure on Santorini, soaking up the sun on the famous black sand beaches. Alternatively, take one of the optional island or boat tours to explore the volcanic caldera. A trip to Oia on the north west tip of the island is considered a must to watch the sunset, ranked among the most spectacular in the world. Day 4: Enjoy some last minute beach time in the morning, or visit the town of Fira to purchase souvenirs and gifts in the shops. Restaurants overlook the famous volcano when you want to grab some lunch. In the afternoon, you’ll be transferred to the port from your hotel for the picturesque sail back to Athens.

Almost everything we hoped for!

We had a panic first day when the driver thought he was picking up 2 people but we had paid for 4, but I showed our receipt, he called the office and we were on our way in minutes. When we got on the ferry it was confusing because we did not realize we were to choose seats anywhere except assigned and the workers did not speak good English to give directions, but one we got seats we had a great time. The ferry rides WERE long, but we had planned and played cards and visited and enjoyed seeing the other islands on our way. We were met everywhere, taken to a lovely hotel in Mykonos, the one in Santorini was nice but in the runway path of the airport and they had planes landing as late as 11:50 pm and early as 3:45 am and no air conditioning so it was not so good! Other than that we had a truly lovely time. My sister and her husband went with my husband and I.

They complied with what was agreed, but there was no fluid communication to coordinate with us directly, the communication was made with the lodging and it gave us insecurity not to have that direct communication channel to evacuate doubts. They were marking schedules and meeting points launched as posts that should be taken without further ado. The client should be able to connect via WhatsApp with the local reference.

The boat rides were too long as the boats stopped to let off passengers at so many islands. We decided to skip the final 8 hour boat ride and flew back to Athens because it meant we had almost a whole additional day on Santorini. Otherwise it was very good value and well run.

Bring games and books for the long ferry ride back from Santorini.
