Private Cruise ship Shore excursions in Greece & Turkey
Regular cruise shore excursions are generally a good introduction to any city, however most seasoned cruise travelers prefer to go sightseeing with a private guide.

The difference between organized and private shore tours is best described as "package versus tailor-made." Some people may feel all right joining a large tour group but sometimes it is difficult to hear the guide and the group moves only as fast as its slowest participant. Others may not get their questions answered at all as there may be twenty other people in the group trying to do the same.

In contrast, a small tour group with a tailor-made program is way more enjoyable and ensures personal attention for everyone. You can spend as much time as you want. Therefore, if you want to maximize your limited time, the private escorted tour — tailored to your unique wishes and interests — is an ideal solution.

All our private shore excursions tours are carefully designed to give you the best possible experience. Our knowledgeable, friendly and qualified tour guide and driver will ensure that your visit ashore is truly memorable. When you tour with us as part of a private shore excursion, your tour guide will get you into sites without waiting in lines. That is especially valuable given the limited time you have to spend on ashore.



Mykonos is a Greek island, part of the Cyclades, lying between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos. There are 9,320 inhabitants (2001) most of whom live in the largest town, Mykonos, which lies on the west coast. The town is also known as Chora (i.e. the Town in Greek, following the common practice in Greece when the name of the island itself is the same as the name of the principal town). Mykonos is a major tourism destination.

In Greek mythology Mykonos was the location of the battle between Zeus and the Titans, and the island was named in honor of Apollo's grandson Mykons.
