It was a pleasure having Antonis show us around Mykonos. He shared his knowledge with us enthusiastically as he loves what he does and wants us to have the same appreciation for the island he has. He knows the islands intimately and we could feel his passion as he explained the history of Delos bringing it alive for us, even pointing out his favorite wall there. Whether showing us a tiny Greek Orthodox Church or a restaurant you enter from the sea, he was animated yet professional throughout.

What a great day. Antonis is all you can ask for in a guide and more. He showed us all the normal tourist spots and many more that few see, including meeting with local bakers and tradesmen and lunch at a local spot with great views, food and atmosphere. Along they way he became not just a guide, but a friend who was greatly pleased to share his vast knowledge of the island and his country with great passion and in excellent English. You can't go wrong hiring Antonis: we hope to do so again.

If you are wanting to discover Mykonos then look no further than Antonis! His knowledge, sense of humour and willingness to please means he will create a custom tour for you & you will love it! You will learn things that can't be found in the guide books! He also knows the best places to eat in Mykonos and with so much choice from it is easy to miss the best spots without an experts help! You will fall in love with Mykonos if you choose Antonis!

5 stars Charles D. 12 Aug 2015

Our only regret on this tour is that we were short of time! But Antonis gave us such a wonderful experience moving through these amazing archaeological remains explaining the history and culture with clarity and knowledge and also a very welcome humorous touch. I can highly recommend the tour itself - the site is so big that you will never experience the crowds you get at other places and undoubtedly with Antonis as your guide you will come back from a rewarding visit.

Antonio is an amazing tour guide. He explained the history of Delos as if he was telling a story. You can hear the passion in his storytelling! It was so easy to imagine Delos as it once was because of Antonis' gift of speaking so beautifully. Thank you Antonis for an amazing tour of Delos as well as your thoughtful gifts to us. It was a true pleasure to meet you and to experience Delos through your eyes!

Tour Guide Comment: My dear Sangeeta thank you so much for your good words! It was a pleasure to meet you and guide you on Delos! You have certainly made a new friend here. All the best from Greece!

We spent the day on Delos and Mykonos with Antonis. He took us to local spots in Mykonos which we never would have found on our own. He was eductional and keeping us interested during the day together. I would highly recommend him for both a short 4 hour tour to an all day tour. We never felt like we were being rushed. Thank you for a wonderful day.

Best tour that we had in 2 weeks on our Mediterranean cruise

Antonios was just great and the day was memorable for all of us

I would highly recommend Antonios for a fun, enjoyable, educational and highly entertaining day

We can't say enough wonderful things about our day in Mykonos with Antonis. He was a fabulous tour guide. He was knowledgeable, fun and by the time we were done for the day, we had made a new friend. One of the special treats for the day was a stop at a Mykonian home for a delicious Greek meal. I would highly recommend this option if you have the time. As we were sitting on our tender back to our cruise ship, there was a fireworks display. Could Antonis have planned that as well!!

This tour was fantastic. We were a group of 8 people in our 30's. we ran late getting to the tour and Antonis was amazing about it, he really looked after us! He is incredibly knowledgable and really brought to life what it would have been like living in Delos in its glory days. We were all mesmerized by his storytelling and passion. If you are considering getting a guide for your day over to Delos I would not hesitate to book this tour

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you Tania! It has been a great pleasure to meet you and your friends! I hope the whole tour went well! Next time we'll arrange it to show you my island Naxos and its hidden gems!

If you want an energized educated guide, then Antonis is the right choice. He has amazing knowledge of the history of Mykonos and Delos. He told the stories of Delos in an interesting and engaging manner. We were never bored. He obviously enjoys what he is doing. We also all enjoyed the town of Mykonos, with it's narrow streets, the islands beautiful beaches and the tour of the Monastery. Even getting drenched by a sudden rain storm could not dampen our day. We highly recommend Antonis.

5 stars Carolyn G. 11 Sep 2013

Terrific guide. We would book with Antonio again for sure. Thank you for a wonderful tour.

5 stars Luke C. 12 Sep 2012

What a great day with Antonis. We took the ferry to Delos, spent time in the town of Mykonos and also drove to corners of the island many would not have the time to visit. Our tour also included a stop at a great souvlaki place for lunch and later a cafe for fresh coffee and greek yoghurt. AMAZING. Do not hesitate to book up Antonis, a great day with a great guy.

Tour Guide Comment: When a guide meets people like Luke, Pauline, Colin and Erin work becomes a pleasure. Have a safe return my friends. I will keep you in my mind with the brightest colours...And who knows you might see me in Perth one day!

5 stars Veronica B. 09 Jun 2012

He was a fabulous guide...knowledgeable and flexible.. Even though our ship changed its itinerary, Antonis was right there. He took us to a local "eatery" to sample some yogurt with honey...Yummmmm! We also toured Red Beach and a wonderful beach to swim. He drove pretty much all over Mykonos. He was extremely knowledgable about Delos as well. I would not hesitate to use him again and I highly recommend him!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you so much for your good words, Veronica! In fact, I enjoyed it as much as you did! Hope to see you around again and have you joining my "Aegean Odyssey"!
