Arthur was amazing! He tailored the tour us. If we had already seen an area or weren’t interested in certain sites, he had no problem skipping it for us. Pick up and drop off were great. He picked us up from the hotel and dropped us off at the restaurant where we wanted to have dinner. It was a perfect way to get a feel for Santorini and learn about the island as well. Oh, and Arthur was a fantastic photographer taking us to the best photo places we would have never found and allowed our group of four to have great group pictures in Santorini. I highly recommend!

We did a private tour with Theo and he was an excellent host! He shared lots of history and facts about Santorini that only a resident would know. Very enjoyable! He also modified the trip for us with stairs and hiking as we are both 70+ years of age. He was most accommodating.

We had a fantastic experience with the trip. Our driver/guide (Arthur) did a wonderful job in taking us to places which were less crowded and gave us a unique view of the island. I highly recommend this private 1/2 day trip, it’s worth it.

Haris was a wonderful guide and took us to an amazing restaurant on the beach

We had an amazing experience. Out guide was fantastic. Highly recommend!
