Our tour guide was awesome! She was super nice and down to earth. We appreciated her allowing us plenty of time to explore and ask questions. She was very courteous and thoughtful when it came to keeping us safe and on time to each new destination. We met some great people as well. Highly recommend to get a feel for the entire island.

A great way to see the whole island in a day! Especially for the price since taxis are so expensive! History/info about each site shared on the bus and then free time at each site provided with helpful tips!

Very informative, pleasant and fun. Delicious food and Chris was a great chef/teacher. Stavros was excellent. Highly recommend this outing

Amazing day out. From our arrival at Akrotiri, kayaking on the Santorini coast line to a delicious picnic lunch. Couldn't fault it.

We just loved the wine tour with Dora. Perfect beginning of our holiday. Highly recommended.
