What people are saying about Megalochori

We did this activity as a family on the very last day we spent in Santorini before going home. Not only was it extremely educational, but I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Atlantis and how it relates to the history of Santorini.

Everything is very well done, very interesting 1 hour which allows you to discuss with the children (or the not so young) about this story mixed with an ancient myth. a very good unexpected surprise on the island. To do!

Great trip, the highlight was the guided tour of the excavations at Akrotiri. Our guide was well informed and entertaining - which made the tour extremely enjoyable
