I cannot recommend this tour or our tour guide, Mary, enough. The tour was the perfect balance of local history and culture, and delicious wine. Mary was so knowledgeable and passionate about Santorini; it made our day with her informative, engaging and incredibly fun. We had a fabulous day and would absolutely recommend you spend a day with Mary on your next trip to Santorini! (I will be back whenever she offers a Local Cats of Santorini tour :) )

Although it rained and we did not realise that Santorini shuts down in the winter months we were able to explore the island without any crowds. Arthur took us to all the historic famous locations for some of the most unbelievable photos. Our visit to the winery and the tasting of the Santorini wines was fabulous. Lunch at the Black Sand beach was wonderful and we were grateful the Sun began to shine through.

a little confusing with the instructions in the email. instructions noted to drop off and pickup at the same location. wasn't sure if price paid was for round trip or one way. i assumed one way so i booked transfer to and from airport separately.

Our photographer Mike did a great job and really helped me and my family create some nice memories on the island! Highly recommend

The tour guide explained in deep detail about life in Santorini. The best tour ever
