This was just a brilliant way to see a lot on the island! The tour took us to brilliant places and there was a wine tasting and great view. The sunset at Oia was just terrific, though the guide a different one from the rest of the day kind of just ran us there and dropped us. But we adjusted and enjoyed the sites! It was a really fabulous day--highly recommended!
We three spent a day with Giorgos Gerassimidis touring the most beautiful island Ive ever visited- whitewashed stone homes hugging hillsides, winding cobble stoned roads and alleys that were built for mule transportation hundreds of years ago, the caldera surrounded by volcanic islands. We roamed from one end of the island to the other visiting Fira, the capitol and the other smaller villages, visiting a vineyard, having greek espresso and greek snacks overlooking the valley. We drove to the highest point of the island where there is a Greek Orthodox/ Catholic monastery that owns much of the surrounding vineyard lands. Santorini grows and exports pomegranates, cherry tomatoes, pistachios, wine and figs. There are fortresses from Crusader times on hilltops. The shops sell the usual touristy fare as well as beautiful jewelry and clothing. A great way to end our 22 day journey.
Doing what: Private Custom Tour: Santorini in a Day
The tour was great because it provided a history of the island and had a good sampling of traditional villages, viewpoints of the island, and provided hotel pickup and dropoff. However I paid double to Viatar for booking the tour than what local offices charged!
This was a great tour our tour guide Ilias? Was very knowledgeable about the wines. We went to three Wineries and each had beautiful views. The only thing I wish is that we could actually tour the Vineyards. We were only able to tour the first one. It would have been nice to tour the others.
My friends and I absolutely loved this cruise! Originally, we booked the tour for a Thursday, but the company was so accommodating in letting us switch the booking to the Friday because a couple of our other friends ended up booking the cruise for the Friday. It was such a beautiful day albeit a little windy and chilly when the sun was hidden behind the clouds. The crew from Spiridakos Sailing Cruises Leo, Nick, Korina and Zenia were so amazing! They were extremely attentive to everyone on the cruise, and the lunch meal that they prepared was delicious...we had shrimp, fish, chicken, pasta and salad! We would highly recommend this cruise to anyone visiting Santorini!
My son and Ioved this tour. The guide was very knowledgable and interesting. The wine and food was amazing. The tour was well organized and the transportation was comfortable.
We had the best time on the best boat eating the best food with the best crew!! Thank you Happy Day Boat.
All good apart from the drive down to Athinios - but I did learn that in future not to sit at the front of the Coach! Note to self!
Thoroughly recommend this trip as the boat, crew and guide did a great job. The volcano bit was not too scary but hard work hiking up and back down.
The tour it self was good. Spent a little to much time for lunch. Two hours in a village with nothing to do is to long. The sunset in Oia was beautiful! When we were on the bus coming back to our hotels we were told that we would get dropped off at the same places we got picked up. WRONG the bus driver went past ours. He dropped us off some place that we didn't recognize and said he would send a van to pick us up and take us to our hotel, we were told by two different men that. After waiting 45 minutes we walked the 2 miles at night back to our hotel. Do not us the tour company you use in Santorini.
I like the prehistory museum tour by this tour guide. She was excellent to make interested tour with broaden knowledge. And old town tour was great. Well. i think other place was ok for me.
Excellent tour despite the wet weather - guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable
Good value tour with lots of things to see - the guide was very patient and knowledgeable.
Highly recommended. It was even better than we had hoped it would be. Our tour guide was exceptional - very knowledgable!! The cooking class was our favorite part, and the meal was decided the best one we had in all of Greece!!!
It is hard to top this tour great boat, FUN crew, free-flowing wine/beer, delicious food and spectacular views. Included two stops for swimming/snorkeling equipment provided and a chance to swim in the warm springs of the caldera followed by a spectacular sunset. DO THIS TOUR ... you will have no regrets!!!
This was a great tour...small group of 7. Stematis was our tour guide...very knowledgeable and personable. We visited 3 wineries and 1 microbrewery. Highly recommed!
Amazing tour with varieties of seeing traditional villages, prehistorical museums, wine and sunset. The tour guide Katy is professional as she's humorous, knowledgeable and able to control the schedule.
I have a perfect driver that took me to what I want to see. Great recommended restaurant.
Santorini, a beautiful island with colourful houses and gorgeous sunsets. A dream destination.
I must say the tour was definitely informative and you are able to take in a lot of what Santorini has to offer, several things to point out, you can purchase this tour for over half the cost at your hotel, disappointing to see the markup on the site. In addition the you have several stops where you are given 15-20 minutes for pictures and the lunch stop in Perissa for about 1.5 hours. Perissa is home of the black beach, extraordinary! Then you are off to Oia to see the sunset but for me this part of the tour was not guided, our guide was dropped off in Fira and we were on our own for about an hour and 25 minutes to find our path to the Kastro of Oia and back to the bus, just don't miss your bus, they claim to leave you.
Booked the sunset surprise and it was an amazing day to learn about the wines from the island. Our guide was a wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable sommelier. The food pairings were so much fun too.
We opted for the sunset cruise, and had a great time! The cruise was relaxing, the crew very attentive and the buffet was also quite good. This is a must do when visiting Santorini!
