Absolutely beautiful tour and even better guide!

The tower was amazing! We had a fantastic time and saw some really gorgeous stuff. Our tour guide, Grigoris I believe, was the best guide we’ve had on any tour! So knowledgeable, very personable, funny and informative. We really enjoyed him and the tour! You won’t be sorry! Beautiful views, great history and fantastic photo ops!

Great tour

The music show was fantastic (extra payment), the views were great, the guide was very courteous and knowledgeable. The sunset in Oia was a bit disappointing due to cloudy weather, however the place is nice and the experience was all in all joyful. Taking a small-group tour was a smart decision, although the price was very high.

Beautiful Tour that allowed us to understand many things about Santorini and to see many places even in a single day. The guide Gregory was great and we loved the Music Museum and the interactive lesson: unique experience!
