Some guides are 5 stars, some guides are 10 stars. Angel was 15 stars! He exceeded all of our expectations. He was the best photographer, guide and later became a great friend. Angel was prompt in a great clean car with water bottles and really good A/C. He was personable and so knowledgeable about the island. We drove all over and were able to see almost the entire island. The history we learned was explained so well and Angle speaks very good English. We took this tour hoping it would be good but it ended up being fantastic. Angel was the highlight of our entire honeymoon in Greece. Every step of the tour was smooth and easy. He was understanding about time and never rushed us. Every question, no matter how crazy, was answered kindly and informatively. We highly recommend if you want to see Santorini in a day book with Angel. Also he took us to a mix of touristy and local so we could experience truly the whole island. Angel also is a great photographer.

Victor was an excellent guide with great knowledge of Santorini! He helped us navigate it timely on foot and take beautiful pictures, without waiting in the long lines of those seeking a similar shot. He had wonderful recommendations for cocktails, coffee, gelato, sweets, shopping, and more! Our driver Nikolas was extremely accommodating as he made sure we all had water bottles, spacious seating, and he even played music from our home to share in our culture as well. One of the best tours of our trip!
