What a lovely place! The island is well known for its cosmopolitan lifestyle and this tour is an affordable way to take a taste from Mykonos! We didn't want the day to be over, but it did with overall satisfaction. The ride to Mykonos is by the fastest boat in the Mediterranean and it is so exciting to have experienced also that.
