What people are saying about Firostefani, Santorini

Loved this walking food tour. Our guide was amazing! We went on this tour the afternoon of our arrival to Santorini. Not only did this give us a chance to walk around town, our guide provided both insight and history into Santorini and gave us tips of places to go and things to see. The food was delicious and we were super stuffed by the end of the tour!!! We returned to a number of the restaurants we visited during this tour so it's a great way to get insight into great food in Fira. Highly recommend this tour.

Ari was just amazing! This was without a doubt the best tour I have ever been on! The food was great, the restaurants were great, the rest of the tour group were wonderful. No getting on and off a tour bus! We walked a short distance between 2 connected towns on the Caldera stopping at restaurants and taverns. If you only do one tour this is it! We were definitely full of great food. Thank you Ari!

We highly recommend this walking food tour with Arist! He is so personable and caring that everyone has a great time. The food is excellent, the beer and wine fun. The views are out of this world in Santorini and he has everything ready and waiting with a great setting. Don't miss it.

Dimi took us to spots we would’ve never found, and everything was delicious! Great value, we had so much food and beverages. Bonus was that Dimi is very knowledgeable about the history of the island and the food. Definitely recommend this tour.

Awesome way to explore Fira and have some local cuisine! Aris is a great guide who is clearly passionate about food and culture. The walking itself is easy going and the food we sampled was delicious. Highly recommend!
