What people are saying about Ano Mera

This tour was one of the best I had on my trip to the Greek Islands thanks to our tour guide. Andrea shared both historical facts and her personal experiences as a long time Mykonos resident. She answered all our questions and showed genuine interest in getting to know people from the group. Will definitely recommend her to anyone. As far as the service, bus was on time, she explained all the logistics of the tour and the time spent at the different locations was more than enough to admire the vista and take pictures.

There were 14 in the group. The guide was very informative about both tourism and local life. The tour was well balanced partially on the bus and partially walking. The guide made sure to take the the time to provide everyone with photo opportunities. Excellent pickup and drop off. Our guide was pleasant and accommodating.

Andrea was an excellent tour guide. Much insight into life on the island. Very interesting. Highly recommend this tour.

Highly recommend! Wonderful experience with an entertaining guide. Thank you!
