What people are saying about Megalochori

We had a fantastic day in Santorini. Arthur was exceptional. He took us to beautiful places we never would have found, and found all of the great picture places. Arthur was professional, kind and a pleasure to spend the day with. He was extremely knowledgeable about Santorini, teaching us both past and current information. He extended our day past our original agreement. It is obvious he loves his job and his country, and loves sharing it with others. We would highly recommend him to enhance your experience in Santorini. Thanks, Arthur, for a great day!!!

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.

Our guide was great! Since there were only 6 in our group, he knew just the right places to take us for great views of the island that the large groups can’t go to. And his knowledge was amazing! Thanks for a truly memorable visit to your beautiful island!
