What people are saying about Megalochori

Arthur (our guide) made this tour amazing! He showed us the entire island. He knew all the best photo ops in Oia. He took us to the top of the mountain to see the view of the entire island from the monastery and then a wonderful lunch at a family restaurant on black beach. The food was amazing. You'll see things you can see from a tour bus tour. Thanks for a great day Arthur!

Arthur was an amazing guide and driver. He was knowledgable and made the trip memorable. He even took one of the youngest member of the family on a hunt for red rocks. Excellent suggestion for a lunch stop. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that was considering visiting Santorini.

Arturo was excellent! Best views of the island. The ride was super good in a Mercedes van with A/C and we finished off at a winery before catching our flight back to Athens! I truly recommend this company and tour

Durem was such an amazing tour guide. He was both knowledgeable in addition to being a safe driver. Hugely recommend. Don’t miss an opportunity.

We couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide, he was phenomenal! Can’t wait to come back and see more with him :)
