What people are saying about Firostefani, Santorini

What a beautiful and magnificent day we had in Santorini. Everything was perfect. Our driver Arthur was extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the entire Island of Santorini and the history and country of Greece. Arthur spoke Excellant English and was so fun to have host us around the island. He called us in advance to confirm our reservations and to plan our day. Arthur was there to greet us at our agreed upon time and location (in fact he was there one hour prior to our agreed upon time). He set up and amazing lunch for us at the small fishing Village of Oia. The food was amazing, fresh and the service staff was warm and friendly. Arthur took us to several “secret and off the beaten path” look out’s where we had magnificent views of Santorini and the Greek Coast. We also visited the “Red Beach” and the “Black Beach” which were fun to see. On the highest point of Santorini is a monastery with magnificent views of the island. The van was spotless, comfortable and spacious!

Our tour guide was absolutely wonderful! We had a few days in Santorini before our tour which we spent at the beaches. Our guide modified our plans because of that and rather than take us to places we had already seen he took us to a few extra places off the normal route! He was so very generous with his time and accommodations. I highly recommend this tour.

Superb hike certainly quite physical but allowing to better appreciate the spectacular landscapes and the cities. Our guide, Catherine was able to share with us her knowledge and her anecdotes in a very welcoming, very smiling and very cheerful way An excursion to recommend

We had a very informative and enjoyable time. Saw so many of the landmarks of Santorini in a 1/2 day. The wine tasting was wonderful as well! Would definitely recommend if you have limited time as we did on Santorini.

Everything was great! Great tours, good explanations, the driver also gave us time when we wanted to take a closer look - great arrangements by the boss! Highly recommended!
