* A traveler said: "This tour was great! You get to see some of the main highlights of Santorini and our tour guide Agatha made the whole day fun and informational. Agatha was extremely nice, funny, and explained everything in an easy to understand manner. Aerostopolis (spelling is probably very wrong) was our driver all day up until the very end when we departed from Oia after sunset. He was very professional and had ice cold water available for purchase on the bus. The very end was the only slightly confusing part of the tour. If you have a difficult time navigating back to the bus without a guide or have difficulty with steps (the red beach had a little hike up a rocky steep area, Emborio had some steps, and Oia had some steps) this might be difficult for you but I felt the guides were very straight forward with where they would be and what times to get back. We found there was more than plenty of time to get in everything we wanted/needed at each stop. For us they had us switch vans to leave Oia at the end so this may happen to you (it’s a bit of a semi controlled chaos there at the end with the bus switcharoo but as long as you see your name on the list they’ll get it sorted out). Be sure to wear comfy shoes, a hat, extra water, and wear sunblock! You can’t beat the views and pictures you get on this tour!! Overall we highly recommend this tour!"

* A traveler said: "There aren't enough words to describe how amazing this experience was. It started out with our driver, Panagiota Fantopoulou, picking us up at our hotel. It was a very hot day in Santorini so she came prepared with a cooler full of bottles of water. We didn't have hats on so she suggested we either get hats or buy hats because we were going to need them. Thank God we did because it was hot that day!!! Panagiota was super knowledgeable about the island of Santorini and its history. Someone in our group had a disability so she was very patient with us and gave us plenty of time to rest. She was so lovely and even volunteered to photograph us in some of the most beautiful locations I have ever seen. We ended the day in Akrotiri having an amazing lunch at Maria's - a true authentic Greek experience that I will never forget. I highly recommend booking this tour! Just wish Panagiota was our tour guide for the remaining of the time in Santorini."
