We had a brillant guide! She guided us to the best photo sites in imerovigli and oia etc saving us a lot of time under the hot sun to get the best shots. We were also able to spend quality time in Akrotiri and Art Space (winery) and drive round Santorini island. We find that this 6h trip is a good value for money to explore Santorini.

Nick was an incredible guide, with tons of knowledge about Santorini and Greek history. We went to several great locations for photographs, and he explained the significance of everything we saw. The winery and the monastery were highlights for us, and we left the tour feeling like we had left no stone unturned on this beautiful island. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for cultural insight as much as picturesque locations.

Our guide, Lydia, was extremely knowledgeable and very kind and helpful. The driver, Alex, was very prompt in picking us up at our hotel. And the company itself is very very good at communicating all information in a timely manner. You never have to guess when or if something is scheduled or confirmed.
