Mykonos Shore Excursion Guide

Cruise lines offer a number of shore excursions for sale when visiting Mykonos. For your convenience, we have provided a sample listing below of the shore excursions typically sold by cruise lines that visit Mykonos. You may wish to check out 3rd party shore excursions in Mykonos to get a wider variety of options to choose from.

Mykonos Tour

Mykonos tours range from 3 to 7 hours in length, and typically show you the highlights of the island, including the village of Ano Mera, a visit to the 16th century Panagia Touiani Monastery, Kalafatis Beach, the town of Mykonos, the colorful houses built in the sea that form “Little Venice,” and Paraportiani Church. The full day (7 hour) tours typically include a tour of Delos and lunch.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay from $59 to $159, depending upon tour length and agenda.
 
Booking Advice: Because of the walking involved, especially when visiting Mykonos, these tours are rated as physically strenuous. That said, some Mykonos tours offer the option to return to the ship once the coach tour of the island has concluded. Cruise line prices appear to be competitive. However, you may want to keep in mind the fact that Mykonos, less than a mile from the cruise terminal, is a thirty minute walk or a 3 minute shuttle ride. By doing a little pre-trip investigating (such as you are now), you could likely devise a do-it-yourself tour!

Delos

Tours of Delos from start to finish last from 3.5 to 4 hours, with two hours of that time dedicated to the actual walk through this archaeological site. After arriving by boat to Delos, you'll visit highlights including the Agora of the Competialists monument, the Sacred Way, the Sanctuary of Apollo, and the Terrace of the Lions. Typically, there's free time to visit the museum that houses existing original statuary. Regarded as Apollo's birthplace, Delos' centermost location in the Cyclades Island group made it a major trade center in ancient days.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay from $60 to $65.
 
Booking Advice: Walking for two hours at an archaeological site is the primary reason why this activity is rated as physically strenuous. Cruise line prices for this tour appear to be competitive with online third party vendor excursions.

City Tour & Aegean Maritime Museum

These 2.5 hour tours begin with a walking tour of Mykonos, featuring highlights that include the Tria Pigaolia (Three Wells), art galleries, cafes, Little Venice, and the 15th century Paraportiani Church. At the Aegean Maritime Museum, you'll see ship models from the Hellenistic Period to the 1800's, as well as a fascinating collection of Greek maritime artifacts and documents.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay around $60.
 
Booking Advice: Tours of the town of Mykonos are typically involve a lot of walking, so these excursions are rated as physically strenuous. With the cruise terminal a 30 minute walk away (or a 3 minute shuttle ride away), you may want to consider exploring Mykonos on your own and include a visit to this museum.

Mykonos Beach Transfers

The cruise lines offer beach transfers to Kalafatis and Elia beaches. Kalafatis does have a little tavern for refreshment. Including 15 minutes transportation each way, you'll have 4 hours of beach time.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay around $25.
 
Booking Advice: These tours are considered to be easy in terms of physical exercise. Because the island is framed in beaches, you have an assortment of choices you may wish to explore on your own. Paradise and Super Paradise Beaches are “party beaches,” and not really good places for families. Ornos Beach can be reached by buses which sweep through hourly. Past guest comments indicate that Ornos has more refreshment and dining facilities than Kalafatis Beach. Also, for around 30 Euros, you can purchase a day pass to use the St. John Hotel pool and beach property, and this includes transfers. It may also be important to know that Kalafatis Beach IS windy and is thus a great place for wind-surfing. At the Mykonos beaches, be sure to have Euros as credit cards and other currency types are not accepted.

Third Party Shore Excursions in Mykonos

Below are links to third-party shore excursion vendors in Delos (Mykonos) Greece. These links will launch in a new browser window and are external sites. We bear no responsibility for the content or services offered at these sites.
3rd party shore excursions often have advantages over shore excursions sold by the cruise lines. Third party shore excursions can be less costly and feature smaller groups than shore excursions sold by the cruise lines. Often, the vendors you buy from directly are the same vendors used by the cruise lines themselves.
 
The benefit of buying shore excursions from the cruise line is that the vendors and pre-screened for safety and reliablity. While cruise lines shore excursions can be more expensive than buying direct from a local vendor, there is certainly peace of mind that the cruise line will be using a reliable, safe and trusted vendor. If you experience a problem with the vendor on a cruise line-sold shore excursion, the shore excursion managers onboard the cruise ship will likely be an invaluable resource to help settle disputes.
