This was a fabulous day with knowledgeable and fun tour guides Stelios and Antonio who were organized, fun, and just great guys! They gave us great insight into the history of Santorini. They found the best parking, handing us cold water throughout the day and we got to see the whole island end to end. I personally loved the stop at Gavalas winery, the oldest in Greece. We went with our teenage daughters, 17 and 14.

Arrived in Santorini via a cruise, took the tram up to the top and met up with our tour guide Jon and driver Alex. Jon was very nice and very knowledgable and we learned a lot about the history of the islands. Made many stops around the island with beautiful views everywhere. Both were kind enough to take pictures of us as well at the best spots. At the end of the tour we were very pleased that they reserved a table for us at a seaside restaurant where the small waves were inches from our feet. A perfect day. We couldn’t ask for more. Would definitely recommend these guys if you have limited time and want to see a lot.

Thoroughly enjoyed our day on Santorini - we were so happy to get beyond Fira and Oia. Our guide was amazing - a teacher who gave us unique insights into Greece and Santorini in particular, and took us to some out-of-the-tourist-area villages to get us out of the crowds. We took the wine-tasting option for an extra fee and it was well worth it - great views, wonderful wine, and a nice break during the day. The views from Oia were amazing and we're glad to have seen them, but it was the rest of the day and the context from our guide that made the tour. Had plenty of time in Fira to do a bit of shopping before heading back down on the cable car to reboard our ship. Definitely recommend - and thank you for a wonderful day!

What a great tour! Our guide, Stelios, was awesome - knowledgeable and friendly. He took us for a walk through Oia to see the houses perched on the cliffs, up to the highest viewing point of Santorini, a wine tasting overlooking the Aegean, guided walk through Pyrgos and a fantastic place for lunch on Black Beach. Our driver was also excellent and we would highly recommend this tour.

Santorini is beautiful and how can you not absolutely love it. A private tour was the way to go. We also enjoyed the fewer crowds in the off season of April.

Fantastic driver and official photographer and informative guide. The island is beautiful and well worth exploring. Note to anyone who might have mobility issues, the little towns are very hilly and it could be difficult to walk up and down the narrow lanes. However, I would highly recommend this excursion.

Great tour. There were only 2 couples and our guide, Stefano and our driver, Alex were wonderful. We were able to see a large part of the island, with a good number of scenic stops without doing an excessive amount of walking. We learned a lot about the history of the island about the lifestyle of the residents. We would highly recommend this tour.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL Private Tour in Santorini in Oct 2017. Kevin our guide was AMAZING - Best Guide EVER!!! Kevin really provided us with a marvelous tour, very informational and easy going. It was a combination walk/ride tour. He selected a wonderful place for lunch and ensured we understood the menu and helped with an translations with our waiter. Saw many sites of this beautiful Greek Island. We had such an enjoyable time and would highly recommend the 6-Hour Private Best of Santorini Experience with Kevin as your guide. We have such wonderful memories of this tour.

Poppy and Costas made this private tour for the four of us special. We saw and learned about Santorini from the perspective of a local. Poppy asked what we wanted to experience and she made it happe. Fun day of exploring small villages,countryside and towns. Stayed away frrom crowds. Again it was like having a friend or relative show you around their town and area. We finished the day with a stop at Santos Winery. Tasting was not included in the tour but worth ever Euro! This again was the only way to see Santorini. Well done Poppy and Costas. Thank you!

Our trip to Santorini was one of the highlights of our recent cruise to Greece and Italy. Our driver was Spiros and our tour guide was David. David was a great guide. He has extensive experience in the field of tourism and worked for several years on a cruise ship before becoming a guide. After boarding our van our first stop of the day was the village of Oia where we had spectacular views of the five islands that make up Santorini as well as one of the most photographed of the famous blue domed churches. We spent a good amount of time there and had time to do a little shopping. After leaving Oia we visited the Monastery of the Prophet Elias and the village of Magalochori. At this point in the day we were ready for lunch and Spiros drove us to Black Beach where we had an amazing lunch right on the beach at a restaurant called Forty One. After lunch we visited Red Beach and then headed back to Firo where the ship had dropped us off. We had to wait almost an hour for the cable car to take us down the mountain to the ship's tender so plan that wait into your itinerary for the day. You can walk the donkey trail or ride the donkeys down to mountain but it is VERY STINKY and we were told that walking is not really recommended because in addition to the smell the trail is slippery because of all the donkey mess. All in all our visit to Santorini was great and we loved having our own van, driver, and private tour guide rather that the large cattle drive type tour offered by the cruise ship.
