Andreas and Natalia were great. This tour is perfect way to see Santorini and feel like you saw all of the island. Going first thing in the morning allows you to go see Oia before the cruise ships arrive. It’s so nice to have Andreas drive & Natalia describe what you are going to see. One of our favorite parts was going to Art Space Winery https://artspace-santorini.com/. The tour is so interesting and learning about how the grapes grow and how they make their wines while strolling through the art is very cool. We finished with lunch at the Black Sand Beach Perissa. Very neat to see. For a family of 4-6, this is the best bargain in Santorini. I would recommend to people going to Santorini their first and additional times.

This was a great experience and allowed us to see more parts of Santorini that we otherwise would not have been able to see or get to. We were able to customize the stops that we made, so we saw places like Akrotiri, Imerovigli, Santo Wines, the beach, and the village of Megalochori. We were very happy with the amount of customization and the care and attention we received from the driver and our tour guide, Nick. We highly recommend this experience for anyone interested in seeing more of Santorini beyond the main tourist locations.

We had a brillant guide! She guided us to the best photo sites in imerovigli and oia etc saving us a lot of time under the hot sun to get the best shots. We were also able to spend quality time in Akrotiri and Art Space (winery) and drive round Santorini island. We find that this 6h trip is a good value for money to explore Santorini.
