Grigoris was an excellent guide. A very knowledgeable, friendly and professional individual who was ready to go out of his way to keep us happy. Since the tour was private we had the chance to customise the itinerary in any way we liked. Overall this was an excellent tour, well worth its money. I would highly recommend both Grigoris and the tour!

Gregory was a terrific tour guide. We really enjoyed everything he showed us (and we saw a lot that day) and he was VERY knowledgeable and informative, handling every question we had with ease. Such a gentleman as well. This tour was the best thing we did on Santorini. Very worthwhile.

Perfect. Gregory's attention was spectacular: he adapted the tour to our schedule and our tastes and explained to us at each visit the most interesting. A 10. Highly recommended.

Sanorini is a beautiful place to visit!
