What a great trip! The views are fabulous and Matt (the tour guide) makes the trip an unforgettable experience with his knowledge and manner. The highlight is the picnic at the highest point of the island with homemade delicacies. Thank you Matt!

A magnificent sunset over the highest point of the island that we would not have found on our own. Matt our guide told us anecdotes about Mykonos and its history and made us a very nice homemade snack! Small group! Perfect

Our guide, Eva, shared interesting and anecdotal information about Santorini. The walk was structured so it was enjoyable for all. We stopped after an hour or so for Greek refreshments and they were wonderful.

Our guide was very personable and kind. He shared a lot of knowledge of Mykonos and was incredibly helpful in answering our questions.

This is one of the most informative hikes I’ve been on. Glad this was a part of my vacation
