What people are saying about Pyrgos Kallistis

Es hat alles bestens geklappt. Der Fahrer war pünktlich beim Hotel. Er fragte uns was wir gerne alles sehen möchten. Danach machte er uns einen Vorschlag. So haben wir in etwas mehr als 5 Stunden die ganze Insel gesehen. Er hat uns viel erklärt und gezeigt. Uns ausgeladen und wieder abgeholt. Es war ein absolut gelungener Tag. Würden wir sofort wieder buchen.

This was an amazing experience and way to see all the sights in Santorini. We didn't rent a car so we found this to be an efficient way to get to explore on our own schedule. Our guide was amazing- a great driver, knowledgable, friendly and kind. He tailored the day to what we wanted to see and do. This was well worth it and one of the highlights of our trip!

A big thankyou to Argyris our driver and tour Guide today. Amazing Experience , full of interesting information- explained in full. He went the extra mile to show us more local parts of the Island taking many photos . Thank you again Argyris- big thumbs up from us . Highly recommended

Brilliant day out - very informative, friendly and happy to follow our itinerary. Very accommodating of our timings and helpful when we decided to stay longer in Fira - he made sure we had contact details etc to arrange our own journey back. I would definitely recommend this.

A great trip visiting some wonderful places. The guide/driver was excellent with his knowledge and help during the trip.
