Thank you for the feedback
I have been to Mkonos twice and my friend has been to Patmos.
My suggestion is to look for a private tour on the smaller islands. If you research on the internet, there are some recommended for hire on the Greek Isles.
Here are my suggestions for Mykonos:
- taxis are lined up at the port and it is relatively cheap to go to some of the beaches in the area. In 2007, it cost about 5 euros from town to Ornos beach and 12 euros to Paradise Beach (younger crowd)
- Delos is a small island near Mykonos with preserved Greek ruins - this is a half day tour, great for the morning, can look at schedule and book anytime.
- Mykonos town is walking distance and lots of shops/restaurants to explore, you'll need about 2-3 hours.
Typically, based on my experience on other Greek Islands, nothing is fully booked and they come to port offering tours the morning you arrive. During high peak season (mid June - Aug) is when you should pre-book.
Hope that helps.
