Day by Day Itinerary
Your trip begins with your arrival into Mykonos, the island renowned for its fine dining eateries, luxurious resorts, high-end boutiques and gorgeous beaches. Private transfer will bring you to your accommodation where you can relax and simply enjoy the view or perhaps head to one of the many stretches of soft, powdery sands. If you want to stretch your legs, take a stroll through the 18th-century neighborhood called Little Venice located near the island’s historic windmills it’s filled with seaside eateries and opulent former captains’ mansions. It’s also one of the top spots to enjoy a sunset, well-worth sticking around for.
Today you will escape Mykonos Town to discover more of this beautiful island. Explore Mykonos by Jeep, venturing off-road to discover its lesser-known, untamed places by 4X4. Take in a dazzling panoramic view from a higher altitude to capture fabulous photos while sipping homemade wine (or another drink). Explore small pristine villages with the opportunity to visit a hidden secluded beach for a refreshing swim. Finish the trip with a barbecue lunch before returning to Mykonos Town in the early afternoon.
Enjoy the day to yourself, perhaps relaxing on one of the islands sought after beaches or beach clubs. If you want to get out on the water and try windsurfing, at Ftelia Beach where the waves are often ideal, there’s a windsurfing school. Alternatively wander through Mykonos Town (Chora), strolling the labyrinth of enchanting streets with their white cubist homes, colorful doors and lots of bougainvillea. Matogianni, the main street, offers great shopping and dining.
Spend the morning at leisure on your last day in Mykonos. In the afternoon our guide will meet you at your hotel and drive you to a family home outside of Mykonos where you will take part in home-hosted cooking experience.
Learn to cook a selection of traditional Greek dishes in a fun and friendly way, with ample local wine to either help or hinder your culinary skills. This cooking experience is a lot of fun and includes a delicious meal at the end.
After breakfast, your private driver will meet you for transfer to the harbor to catch the high-speed ferry to Santorini. Your first glimpse will be of the steep caldera cliffs, something that brings plenty of oohs and awes – you might have to pinch yourself to be sure that it’s not a dream. The central caldera is the result of the huge volcanic eruption that occurred more than 3,500 years ago, with the center of the island collapsing into the sea. You’ll be met here at the port by private transfer and taken to your hotel, with the rest of the day at your leisure.
Enjoy an exciting day sailing around the cliffs of Santorini and seeing the island from a completely different angle. Meet our guide in the harbour for a semi-private sunset sailing cruise. Whilst on the luxury catamaran you will visit the islands famous red and white beaches, Santorini’s Venetian Lighthouse and more. Enjoy a selection of swim stops throughout the day along with a delicious on board BBQ with drinks.
