Collection at 17:00 from your chosen departure point for transfer to the village of Ano Mera
Here we disembark to visit the monastery of Panagia Tourliani – originally built in 1542 and restored in the 1700s, it has some wonderful architecture, grounds and a fountain
There is also a museum with interesting religious artefacts
After the visit we stroll 400 meters to the Mykonian Farm where we will be greeted by the Farm’s superintendent who will show us how the organic and the animal farming operates
Later, we will share a farmer’s snack consisting of bread, tomatoes, kopanisti, cucumbers and poor man’s black olives, accompanied by the traditional raki while hearing the history of the island’s farming, its livestock and its crops
Depending on the season, you can cut and taste produce from the vegetable garden
For visitors who wish to get involved with farming tasks, the superintendent will provide you with the right tools and instruct you as you go along.
Around 20:00, we will take you back to your point of departure
Alternatively, if you have booked traditional dinner at either the Mykonian Farm or our traditional home, the Mykonian Spiti, we will escort you to your seats

Anything that is not clearly mentioned as included
Mykonos is not as big as some Greek islands which means it’s possible to see all the major places of interest in half a day. Windmills, pelicans and monasteries are only some of the things on the agenda.
A short cruise from Mykonos is an island with a very different spiritual feel, Tinos. It’s probably three times the size of Mykonos but nowhere near so well known. It’s a great place for some time away from the party vibe.
We’re talking one of the most revered islands in ancient Greek history, so important to the national culture that nobody is allowed to live there apart from a handful of wardens. You can still visit though, and it’s a cultural delight.
A perfect half-day trip for families, this tour gives you the chance to experience the traditional island farming culture of the Cyclades – you can even get your hands dirty in the garden or with the animals.
Everywhere you go in Greece we have olive oil running through our veins. Homer called it ‘Liquid Gold’ and Hippocrates, the father of medicine, called it ‘the great healer’. This is your chance to smell it, taste it, and hear about its history.
