Excellent Tour of Santorini

This tour was wonderful, and was a great way to view Santorini. Marcos was so friendly and knowledgeable. He took us through Santorini and kept us entertained the whole time. This tour was perfect, and would not have been the same if Marcos hadn't been such a excellent tour guide.

Marco was such a great tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his job and country. We learned so much from him and was delighted with the places that he took us. My family and I were really pleased with his service and would highly recommend everyone to use their service.

Good But Very Rushed

We went during a very busy time. I would suggest to visit the city and see the views and skip the wine tasting. This would be a more pleasant trip.

Wow! What a Great Impression!

Our trip was originally separated into 2 groups because of the amount of people we had on the tour. What a great surprise when Katrina showed up and said they had a larger van and all of us would be able to go in one van. First, I have to say she is fantastic! We had a great time learning about this beautiful place with her as our tour guide. Since it is a private tour we were able to tailor it. Even at the last minute when we wanted to purchase wine and stopped at the winery. She also allowed us time to see the blue domes, we went to a great lookout spot up by the monastery to take pics and finally we hit the beach! This was a welcomed stop by the entire group since the temps that day were in the 100s and the water was cold but beautiful as well. It is a total consensus that this was by far one of the best tours we took while on our trip. Thank you Katrina! You are truly a great ambassador to Santorini! Yamas!!

We would rate this tour a 10 if we could. What an enjoyable morning! Our guide Marcos was on time at the pick up point and impressed us at that point and all through the tour. He showed us all that he could in the allotted time. Very passionate and knowledgeable about Santorini! He would stop anytime we wanted to take pictures and answered all questions. He is a very safe driver on the old narrow roads. We highly recommend this tour with Marcos.

Our guide was Markos and he was very excited and friendly. His conversation style was very dramatic was made the trip more exciting. He took us all over the island and told us so much about our stop. He also took us to a winery that was owned by third generation family. At the winery we were served different wines along with several tasty treats all which were for sale there. We loved the owners and Marcos

Excellent Experience

We traveled in Santorini via a cruise ship for our honeymoon end of August 2018. We had a private tour with Markos who was amazing. He was incredibly knowledgable, very energetic, and kept us laughing with good conversation the entire time. He even helped us get a reservation with a great view for dinner. We got to see Oia, a black beach, went up to one of the highest points in Santorini for great pictures. He was even going to take us to a winery, but I was too concerned to get back to the ship in time I'm sure it would've been fun. The van he drove was impeccable, very clean. If we're ever back in Santorini we'd definitely book this type of tour again!

This tour was absolutely amazing. Our guide Kathrin was beautiful and kind. Very knowledgable and lots of fun. Mum and I both have mobility issues and Katherin made sure we were looked after at all times and that we did everything we wanted to at our own pace. We were late getting into the cruise port, but this was not an issue, as Kathrin was waiting for us and managed to make up time quickly so that we didn't miss out on anything we had planned. We were comfortable and felt welcome at all times and even managed to get some great photos as Kathrin offered to be our personal photographer. At our request, she joined us for lunch and helped us pick out some local cuisine and continued to provide detailed information about the produce of the area and the local customs. It was my birthday and Kathrin also ensured that it was extra special with a generous little surprise! Honestly, we can not recommend this tour enough and are just so happy that we booked this one over all of the others out there. If you have mobility issues, then consider these guys, as they really know how to look after you.

Excellent Personal Tour of Santorini

Love our personal tour guide. He showed us places of Santorini that we would not have seen outside of a personal guide. His knowledge was most excellent of the sites he drove us too. Would totally recommend this tour.
