This was probably the highlight of our entire vacation! Our guide was an actual archeologist which made for the most epic experience on the island. We saw every highlight we could have wanted and then had lunch at a local favorite right on the black sand beach per the guides recommendation. The fish might actually have been the best I have ever had and the view was unparalleled!

Fotis was an absolutely amazing guide. He provided us a perfect five star experience. He was so knowledgeable on every detail of the island and showed us some ins and outs & secret spots. He loves what he does and it was very apparent. He made our day in Santorini the best of our trip. We absolutely loved him and would recommend him to anyone that books with your company.

We had such a great tour with our guide Minas. He was very interesting and funny, and able to customize the tour to what we were interested in the most. So thankful that we took this tour with him!

We enjoyed this tour very much. The guide Dimi was wonderful, the food was great and we enjoyed that it was a small group. Everything was well organized and as advertised.

This was a great tour. Great food and drink tasting. Our guide was energetic and very knowledgeable of Santorini. So much fun
