Vasiliy was an amazing tour guide! Our tour was small - only us and one other couple. It felt like we were getting a private tour of the entire island. We laughed the whole time and saw some amazing places! Would definitely recommend if you are only on the island for a few days because you get to see most of it!

Vangelis was the perfect guide for this tour. He has a deep knowledge of the island having spent his childhood visiting his grandparents on the island. Despite some persnickety passengers on our tour and an unfortunate breakdown of our tour van, Vangelis never lost his composure and proved himself a quick problem solver. We enjoyed learning about the island and tour the winery. The sunset view was spectacular.

Kostas, our tour guide, was very informative. The group consisted of 6 people total, and he made sure that everyone was included and waited on. He also made sure we were able to see everything that was on the itinerary even though we had gone over in time. I would highly recommend this tour. In my opinion, it is beneficial to take this tour in the beginning of your stay because you get a general overview of what there is to do and see on the island.

Vangelis was a wonderful tour guide he was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. This tour provided so much more than I expected. Great photo shots, gorgeous views of the entire island, and stops at historic sites this tour had it all. I recommend it highly.

This tour was by far my favorite. It was a small private tour with only 7 of us in the van. Kostas was our tour guide and he was outstanding. He took care of everyone and made the trip very fun. He was full of information and helped answer questions. He went out of his way to make sure all guests were taken care of. He was willing to take pictures and show us routes to avoid all the crowded areas. He was outstanding. I highly recommend this tour and Kostas as your guide!

I would not recommend this tour if you are on a cruise ship. This was supposed to be a small group experience 6 people but one of the tour company vehicles was in a car accident that day so we were combined with another group in a larger shuttle. We had 12 people including our guide, but the shuttle had only 10 seats, so we were pretty cramped and not enough seat belts for everyone. Our guide was very knowledgable about Santorini and took us to numerous sites on the island, but we never had time to really enjoy any of them. While we were able to enjoy a glass of wine at the winery, we didn't get to enjoy the wine tasting or winery tour. The whole tour felt very rushed, and especially for us as we had to make the last tender back to our cruise ship. Our guide did make special arrangements for us to make it back to the ship on time, and our second driver was also very entertaining, so bonus points for that.

Vanglis was our guide and he was awesome! You can tell he was passionate and knew his facts and not just the boring typical facts but ones that catch you by surprise Best tour on Santorini that we did - it was a small group my wife and I and 4 others so you get the one on one attention to ask as many questions as you would like. We would def. recommend doing this one!

Must do tour in Santorini we booked and were the only couple,
Small aiconditioned mini van. Vanglis was our guide together with a trainee guide and were extremely knowledgeable.
Visited some sights that you would normally see in Santorini including a Monestry and finished with a wine tour of an old winery.
I have no hesitation recommending this tour.

We chose to do this tour on the first evening we arrived which I recommended to do as it takes you over the majority of Island and gives you an understanding of where things are. Vangelis was our guide and he was awesome, he is passionate about Santorini and very knowledgeable. We finished at the Winery with a spectacular sunset after our wine tasting, just a tip take a jacket, it was very windy at the Winery and we were all Chilly, Van found us all blankets so we didn't freeze and spoil the Sunset, do ths trip, it was great.

We highly recommend this tour. Our guide was Kostas and he was excellent. My wife and I chose the afternoon tour and were met by Kostas at the easy-to -find bus station in Fira. There were only two other people in the tour group. The tour was in a small, air conditioned van/ mini-bus. As Kostas drove to the different sights in Santorini, he gave us information on the history of Santorini, the Greek culture and language and tips for things to do while in Santorini. He is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He wisely took us to Oia early in the tour, explaining that it gets very crowded closer to sunset. We were able to walk around and enjoy beautiful Oia without the large crowds. We got to experience a gorgeous sunset at a vineyard, sipping wine, rather than jostling for position along the wall in Oia. It made for a lovely evening. We recommend doing this tour on your first day in Santorini because it gives you a wonderful overview of the island and helps you plan the remainder of your vacation. Thank you for a valuable, informative, scenic and enjoyable tour! Kostas....youre the best!!
