Hit both the Black and Red beaches, whose volcanic sand lives up to their respective colorful names. Finish up at a traditional winery before drop off back at your departure point.
The tour itself was great. We were picked up and ended our tour on time. Yet, it was up to us to manage the order of stops and their duration, giving us exactly the flexibility we needed. Santorini is a beautiful place and 5 hours are obviously not enough to see everything, but we had a great time, saw marvellous places and enjoyed great pastry and some improvised minutes at a family beach.
Avoid the usual sightseeing tours and discover the best of Santorini according to your own interests and schedule. Choose your departure time and meet up with a private guide to travel by air-conditioned vehicle to the sights that you want to see. Use the time to visit the village of Oia, perched on rocks that provide stunning views of the sunset over the Aegean Sea. Marvel at the iconic blue and white houses of the caldera, or visit the Bronze Age remains of Akrotiri. Take in breathtaking views of the lava landscape caused by the ancient eruption of the volcano. Stop at black and red sand beaches and visit a traditional winery to learn more about wine making on the island. Get dropped off at your accommodation, cruise ship port or other location on arrangement at the end of an amazing sightseeing tour.
I took the 5 hour private tour option of Santorini with my family (wife and two young daughters). Marcos was waiting for us at the airport to pick us up and proceeded to give my family the most wonderful day we have had on a tour. He was kind, courteous and extremely knowledgeable about Santorini. He was able to win over my 4 year old daughter who doesn't normally talk to strangers she has just met. He took us to all the major photo stops, but also took wonderful pictures of our family together. Kallisti tours was by no means expensive and the booking/arranging of the tour was very easy too. Stella (Kallisti's operations manager) was very helpful in giving us the right option for our tour. Marcos and Stella are wonderful assets to the team, but Kallisti tours for Santorini is one that I would totally recommend (as they customize the day to meet your needs and do everything in a comfortable, easy going way). Well done and thank you!

Visit Delos island from the Old Port of Mykonos City by the boat that departs at 5:00 PM. Sail for half an hour to reach the uninhabited island of Delos, which is considered the holy island of Ancient Greece. There you will take a private guided tour of the Jewish Synagogue on the other part of the island. Learn the Jewish history of the island from a licensed guide. Later, take some time to explore the Museum of Delos before you board the boat to return to Mykonos. The synagogue of Delos, Greece, is one of the oldest synagogues known today, its proposed origin dating between 150 and 128 BCE. The building’s most recent use is widely agreed to have been an assembly hall for Jews or Samaritans. However, the first use for the building is more controversial. While some people think the building was erected as a private house or a pagan meeting place, most believe that it was a synagogue eve...

7 hrs of travel around the island with lovely Theodore. He was informative patient and works with a passion. Took us up to the monastery and we did not get good views due to low clouds so he took us back on the return journey. Also recommended a lovely eatery in Fira where we had the best lamb chops and salad. He took great photos of us. We wish Theodore all the best. Great day!
Pickup at out hotel in Aktorini was right on time. Thomas allowed us to completely customize our tour based on where we had already been and what we wanted to see. He knew many wonderful places for pictures and was friendly and knowledgeable about the sites. Great way for three adults to spend the day!
Theodoro was great - he was very patient, friendly, attentive and made sure we visited all the main landmarks. Definitely value for money too - you can customize the trip and safely expect that Theodore will make it happen.
Great half day tour all over the island. Very friendly driver who showed us great beaches, beautiful places and important points of the island and gave us a brief introduction to Santorini's viticulture.
I cannot rave enough about this experience. This is a must do! Theodore our guide was simply amazing. Insightful, kind, patient and took us to all the best spots. Must do!
