    Today is the beginning of your island-hopping adventure. Departing Athens by coach, transfer to the port of Piraeus for embarkation of the high-speed ferry. Enjoy the ride traversing the Aegean Sea, en route to the island of Mykonos. Often called the "Jewel of the Aegean," it is the most popular of the Greek Islands with its well-preserved windmills, red-roofed churches and whitewashed buildings. Upon arrival, a city tour will show you the highlights of the island including some of its popular beaches, the traditional village of Ano Mera and the typical village square surrounded by small Greek tavernas. During the walking portion, your local guide will take you through the meandering alleyways and narrow streets of the town, passing through the historic center and seeing the windmills, Little Venice, Paraportiani Church and Kastro area.

You'll sample the various products along with small crudites and create your own classification chart. The 'teacher' will then see how you did!

Begin discovering this paradise upon arrival during a tour of the island and its villages, including the most famous village, Oia.

The tour manager Nadine was wonderful. The hotels were lovely. Greece was beautiful. Nikki in Athens was a lovely and super knowledgeable. She does need to learn to "walk and talk", she was wonderful allowing people to catch their breaths while climbing the acropolis. But trying to cram a college level education of the acropolis into an tour is a bit much. Also standing in the same place for about 20-30 minutes per stop is insane. I was so bored I went to take a picture and got separated from the group. Krista in Mykanos was perfect! The first half of Santorini at the beach was great but it went down hill from there. The ferry was rescheduled so we only got to do the wine tasting then rushed to get to Oia and there was no sunset- so why the rush? Then to drive all the way to Fira for dinner was nuts. Combined with the hike to get to the chosen, cramped restaurant was insane!!! Mayflower needs to consider the average age of the people on this trip was 60-70 and all that walking and steps at the end of a loooong day is unacceptable. I thought we'd at least have dinner with a view but no . El Greco Hotel is beautiful but no water in the fridges when the tap water is undrinkable is also not acceptable. The staff at El Greco needs to learn the difference between a taxi and a private tour van. I requested they call me a taxi to go to the lighthouse most web sites indicated 24 euro round trip for a taxi. They called a tour company that sent a Mercedes Tour Van and it cost me 60 euro. The last day due to weather the ferry was delayed and the 5 minute walk to dinner was again 15-20 for folks in this age group and too far at the end of a very long day. Mayflower needs to choose restaurants that are tour bus accessible. I think Mayflower put Nadine in a bad predicament by making her rely on others that clearly don't have her experience. Nadine was a pleasant, professional that tried her best to make sure everyone had fun. I understand Mayflower has no control over the ferries or weather but better planning and easily arranged back up plans need to be in place Perhaps extending this trip by one day-adding a night in Oia then go on to Fira. And consider air from Santorini to Athens instead of a ferry.
