What a beautiful and magnificent day we had in Santorini. Everything was perfect. Our driver Arthur was extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the entire Island of Santorini and the history and country of Greece. Arthur spoke Excellant English and was so fun to have host us around the island. He called us in advance to confirm our reservations and to plan our day. Arthur was there to greet us at our agreed upon time and location (in fact he was there one hour prior to our agreed upon time). He set up and amazing lunch for us at the small fishing Village of Oia. The food was amazing, fresh and the service staff was warm and friendly. Arthur took us to several “secret and off the beaten path” look out’s where we had magnificent views of Santorini and the Greek Coast. We also visited the “Red Beach” and the “Black Beach” which were fun to see. On the highest point of Santorini is a monastery with magnificent views of the island. The van was spotless, comfortable and spacious!

The tour is spectacular, it is not to go to the beach but to get to know the island. Maria was our guide, she knows a lot, she explains everything, she takes you to very nice places, the restaurant she chose for us, the food was delicious, the places to take pictures were the best, without many people. The driver Takis, very cordial, attentive. The wine tasting was delicious, for time we did not get to see the vineyard. Simply the best way to get to know the island with a very experienced local

This was such an excellent tour! Mary was a font of knowledge on such a broad variety of topics, and the itinerary covered every corner of the island. This is a great way to begin your time in Santorini! No regrets at all

Nick was a great guide and knowledgeable. We saw a lot of great places and he took us to a stunning place for lunch off of the beaten path for lunch.

Absolutely an amazing tour. Our tour guide, Theodore, was extremely knowledgeable and very kind. Must book if you are in Santorini.
