Perfect for a personalized tour for our group of 8

We were a family group of eight, aged 40-78 coming from a Holland America Cruise, and doing this day tour made much more sense than all of us paying $150+ per person for the cruise excursion. Plus, our driver/guide Theodore was attentive, knowledgeable and flexible with our plans, and disability/accessibility needs for our group. Much better than a huge tour bus of cruise folks. We checked out Oia, the Akrotiri ruins, did a drive through Pyrgos, and final photo op next to the Elias Monastery. Great, easy day for the old folks in our group that probably only had 4-5 hours in the tank for an outing that we wanted to do as family time.

Absolutely worth the money and perfect! Theodore was so knowledgeable and helpful. He drove and walked us around, he knew all the best spots. And insisted on helping us take some great photos of our group and the couples. He really went above and beyond. This was a highlight of the whole vacation!

Excellent service and value for money

A big thank you to our guide Theodore for your attentive and professional service. He showed us everything we wanted to see and knew precisely the best spot for photos. Moreover, he recommended an excellent family run transitional Greek restaurant (Good Heart near Akrotiri) for lunch which was delicious and very good value for money. Thank you again Theodore and highly recommend this tour and you as the guide!
