Full description

Get a glimpse into Mykoninan farming life on this hands-on tour. Learn about the island's agricultural history, try local snacks, and involve yourself in some farming tasks. Also, pass by the Monastery of Panagia Tourliani.

From your hotel, drive across the center of the island to the village of Ano Mera. Once you arrive, pass through a picturesque square and visit the Monastery of Panagia Tourliani.

Afterward, continue walking about 400 meters to a Mykonian farm. Be greeted by the farm’s superintendent. Tour the grounds and listen as they recount the history of the property and how the farm operates. Sit and relax on a traditional stone-built seat while sipping traditional raki. Learn more about the history of the island’s farming, livestock, and crops. Enjoy a farmer’s snack consisting of bread, tomatoes, kopanisti, cucumbers, and poor man’s black olives. Cut and savor products from the vegetable garden, depending on the season. If you wish to partake in some farming tasks, the superintendent will provide you with the right tools and instructions as you go along.

Some of the tasks include cleaning the garden and weeding, trimming the garden and vineyard, and cleaning, watering, or feeding the animals. If you prefer not to get involved with the farming tasks, you can instead opt to have more free time at your leisure.

    Attentive and considerate guide. Very interesting visit of the monastery and its superb and rich Orthodox church. Nice visit to the farm and delicious discoveries of real Greek products for the children who greatly appreciated this unexpected activity in the program that is quite difficult to organize on the island.
