Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and kind! We spent the whole day looking around the whole city and I feel that was enough to see everything there is to see in Santorini. Now the driver, oh my goodness he is amazing!!! To get in those tiny streets requires a skill! The only downfall was the bus itself, very old and some seats where broken.

Our guide was Catalina, she was super friendly in the most genuine way. She is extremely knowledgeable about the island and Greece in general and made the entire 10 hours fly by! Offered great recommendations for things to do outside the tour as well. She made the whole experience fantastic and I would definitely recommend having her has your tour guide if you can. With the spots we stopped at for pictures were awesome! I would do it all again for sure! 5/5 stars

Great tour guide. She was very knowledgable and easy to talk to. I only went to half of the tour b/c I found some friends to hang out with. I was worried about making it back to the ship on time. We went over most of the island on the half I was on. The wine tasting place wasn't the best. The wine itself didn't taste very good.
