Had a very enjoyable and fulfilling day long tour. Had an absolutely amazing guide and visited places we would never have on our own. Gave ample opportunities for the shutter bugs and were never hurried. Akrotiri, wine tasting and the Oia sunset were just as we had imagined!!! Would definitely recommend even if you have only one day at Santorini.

Our trip was perfect! Our tour guide was so much fun! He was a wealth of facts and interesting stories, and we had a great (most handsome) driver, too! The scenery is beautiful, so picturesque, and the stops allowed for many photo opps. Lunch along the black beach was refreshing, wish I’d had more time to shop. Enjoyed the high point, the winery, and Akrotiri. We had to leave the tour early and they very generously provided transportation for us to the airport. If you’re willing to go with the flow and just have an enjoyable day, I recommend this trip.

Enjoyable day. Saw most of the island. Akrotiri was interesting and guide excellent. Stop for lunch nice but didn't need 2 hours. Great view of island from tel of highest point. Winery ok but would have preferred a bit more info. We did not continue on to Oia mainly because partner hip bad and we were staying in Imergovigli with a spectacular view over Caldera and sunset. So called it a day and tour guide arranged for a ride back to hotel which was great. A great day!

We only had 2 full days in Santorini. We booked this tour so that we could see as much as possible while in Santorini. Katie was our guide and she was great! She was professional, funny and knowledgeable. Gave us a detailed tour of each place, answered questions and also gave us some free time. Did not feel rushed at all! The bus was very comfortable and clean.

This was our first trip to Greece. Santorini is a beautiful island and we were anxious to see as much of it as we could see. Our guide, KATIE, was excellent! She was so knowledgeable and friendly. We could not have had a better guide. We thoroughly enjoyed this all day adventure and would recommend it highly to anyone who visits Santorini.

This tour was an excellent choice for us as we had limited days on the island and wanted to see and experience as much as possible. We were met on time at the advised location. Our driver and tour guide team was excellent. Our tour guide Katy was amazing. She has a great personality and holds a wealth of knowledge. If you book this tour - I hope you get Katy as your guide. You will not regret it.

This tour gives a complete overview of Santorini, starting first with the ancient ruins at Akrotiri. There is plenty of time at the longest beach in Santorini, the black sand beach, so bring your swim suit as well as your appetite for lunch. The views from the top of the island are breathtaking. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. This tour was a hit with family members of all ages, from our teen-agers to grandma.

The tour is a great way to see the overview of Santorini starting from the South part Perisa beach, Akrotiri, etc until the North part Oia of the island.
