Didn't get pick-up on time
, Jul 2021
Nobody picked us up at the said location and time. We have to ask a local lady to make a call to the company, finally they came to pick us up after 40 minutes waiting. We missed two places because of the late pick-up. Otherwise, the tour met our needs.
This tour is a MUST!

The tour was AMAZING and a great way to see many sights of Santorini! The guides were very knowledgeable and wonderful to talk to! The bus was a great touch and a wonderful relief from the Santorini sun. It truly was the perfect start to our trip! You are going to want to do this for sure when visiting Santorini!
Great tour!
, Jul 2021
What a great tour! They covered lots of different areas of the island: history, culture, different panoramic views, beach, etc. The guide (John) was very knowledgeable and funny. We had a small group of 6 people, and the group bonded from the beginning and it was really an enjoyable experience. Also was very nice that they picked up and dropped off directly at the hotel, less stress. I can only highly recommend!

All day Santorini tour
, Jul 2021
The tour guide was outstanding, but due to Covid(?) the tour operator combined several tours into one. This meant that I was unable to go to a couple of the places that were listed on my itinerary. For example, while I was looking at ruins, others that were on a different tour went to the red sand beach so I didn't get to see that even though it was on my tour. Also there was much confusion about the pick up and drop off. Due to the language barrier I am not sure what the additional costs were for

Guided by an archeologist. It can’t get better than that.
, Jun 2021
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable. Of course, he is an archeologist. He knew everything about Akrotiri and the island.
Best experience ever
, Jun 2021
We had the most remarkable tour Not only everything was perfect, but we felt, in every instance, that our guide truly cared about us and did his best to make this trip memorable. I did 2 tours and was awesome.

Not the best of Santorini
, Sep 2020
Best bit about the tour was the free time in Oia. I dont normally leave bad reviews, but I felt really disappointed with this tour. Two of the attraction we were meant to visit were closed due covid. This wasnt mention at all, until we then looked it up ourselves. The tour felt really rushed had 5-10mins in some locations and then 2hrs at the beach where there wasn’t much to do. Felt it would better instead of being at the beach to spend more time in other parts of the tour. Some of the pictures used to advise the tour are deceiving, thought we would be able to be close up to the blue domes, but this wasnt the case. I dont think this tour shows the best of Santorini. I would like a refund.

See the best of Santorini without any effort
, Jul 2020
I had a great time on the tour. We went to places which I would never find on my own all over Santorini. There was a great spot for lunch by the sea, where the food was fantastic. Our guide Antonio was very considerate, trying to show us as much as possible and explain all the things about Santorini. The minivan was clean and comfortable.

Dear ewa_h, thank you for your comment!
good overview of the island
, Jan 2020
tour was good but some of the itinerary was changed due to sites not being open due to holidays. I wanted to see the archeological site and it was closed - If I knew that I would have booked on another day. Overall it was a good entertaining tour with lots of info on the islands towns and background.
