What people are saying about Perissa

Perfect day in Santorini! We visited many of the local highlights and even enjoyed the beach! Our guide was informative without talking too much. It was delightful to spend the day with her. Our bus driver was outstanding! The vehicles were very nice. Highly recommend this excursion!

Lily was a fantastic guide. The tour is very well balanced with several interesting information about the island. It would have been nice to have had more time to reach the private bus after the sunset in Oia. But despite this we are able to see everything within the time frame.

Excellent day ! Discovery of perfect Santorini, beautiful places in the villages and beaches of the island! the bus driver is top notch, as well as the exceptional guide Christina! Good experience !!

We had a great, almost private tour as there were only four of us. Many thanks to Christina and Nikos, you did a great job. Since we were only in Santorini for 2 days, the tour was perfect

The trip was great. Our tour guide was friendly and told us interesting facts about Santorini.
