we were very lucky to be on this tour with the amazing tour guide, unfortunately that was supposed to be her last day with the tour company. She was incredibly funny, and detailed in her guide.

Absolutely enjoyed the tour, the more I learned about Santorini the more I Was in love with it.

The tour guide was amazing! She was able to help everyone with questions of the island. Great wine tour and ending it at Oia which was great for pictures. Loved that this tour picks you up and drops you off at your hotel, made it a lot easier for us. Overall, a def must tour to do.

Would recommend this tour. Our guide, Katarina was great, funny and knew her facts about the island and the sights we visited. The itinerary was slightly different from what was advertised but we enjoyed it just the same.

Great tour. Katarina, the tour guide was EXCELLENT. Probably one of the best Ive had. The Driver was also really nice and helpful. It didn't feel like a guided tour like so many of them can. Very easy breezy and fun.

On this tour, we went to Akrotiri, Perissa beach, Profiti Ilia, Megalochori, Santos Winery and Oia. The actual tour is different than what the description says and honestly, what you get is even better! We started with a pick up from our hotel and going straight to Akrotiri. The ancient town is a wonderful way to learn about the history of Santorini. We then had lunch at Perissa beach at a great restaurant and had time to walk around. We then went through some villages and specifically stopped at Megalochori. The tour then took you up to the highest point in Santorini and we were able to take pictures. Before taking us to Oia for the sunset, we headed to Santos Winery and were able to sample some wines and enjoy a great view. Overall, a wonderful tour and great way to see the island.

Our tour guide for the Oia Sunset and Traditional villages tour was Katy and she was the best guide I think I've ever experienced. She could answer questions from wine making to plants, agriculture, Greek history, religion and on and on and on and had such interesting stories about everything. We saw SO much in one day. Archaeological site, vineyard, lunch at the black beach, traditional village, and of course sunset at Oia. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see the island of Santorini.

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!
