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!
