After an awful climb up donkey mountain 😂 we met up with Themus our guide! He completely customized the day for us and was so full of knowledge. It felt more like hanging out with a friend! Definitely book this if you’re wanting a more private experience in Santorini. While we did visit the more touristy spots for photos most of our time was spent in more out of the way spots which we much preferred!

The best Santorini tour with the local guide Ian
Steve_Z, Dec 2023
Ian, our tour guide, was awesome - not just for his exceptional driving skills but also for his incredible depth of knowledge, bright personality, and witty sense of humor. His extensive understanding of Santorini's history and its people truly elevated our day trip in Santorini, making it incredibly enjoyable. His storytelling was nothing short of enchanting, seamlessly weaving captivating narratives that often had us in fits of laughter. We traversed the entire island, journeying from south to north, stopping at a beachfront traditional fish restaurant for lunch, reaching the island's highest pinnacle, and culminating our adventure in Oia, a village of breathtaking beauty perched on the caldera's edge. Without hesitation, I highly recommend this private tour, specifically highlighting the unparalleled expertise and charm of Ian, the most outstanding guide of all!

Santorini is Beautiful!!!
Beverly_L, Nov 2023
Nick is a great tour guide. We would have never known where to start on the island for our first time but we got to see the towns, beaches, prehistoric ruins, and still had time for photos and shopping. Nick is very friendly and has a lot of sense of humor. You can tell that he really loves his JOB. He is really knowlegeable aslo when it comes to finding the finest winery in town. Great JOB Nick! I will definitely recommend this tour to all my friends and families.

Best tour to see the whole island of Santorini
Christopher_S, Nov 2023
This tour was great and our guide Nikolaos was amazing. We would have never known where to start on the island for our first time, but Nikolaos tailored the tour for what we wanted to see. We got to see the towns, beaches, prehistoric ruins, winery, and still had time for photos and shopping. Our guide was able to answer all our questions and was very knowledgeable. Great time.

Hello Mr Ted! Thank you for your review!
Santorini at its best
David_F, Oct 2023
Our tour guide, Nikos, was a very knowledgeable, bright, funny and exceptional driver. His knowledge of the history and people of Santorini made our trip so enjoyable. His stories were wonderful, captivating and funny at times. We covered the entire island south to north from the small town where we had a sumptuous lunch, to the highest point on the island and ending at Oia, a village of striking beauty on the edge of the caldera. I most heartfully recommend this tour through Viator and especially the best guide of all, Nikos!
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Hello mr David! Thank you for your review!
Fun time with Nikos
Terry_B, Oct 2023
Nikos was awesome. We had some health issues in our party and he adjusted on the spot. He knew so much about Santorini, history, and current Greek culture. He took us too many scenic places for great pictures. We highly revoked a stop at Art Place winery! Thank you Nikos!

I seen Santorini without being in the crowds
Gina_C, Oct 2023
my tour guide was fantastic!! We travelled the whole island: the black beach, the red beach, I got to learn about the lava and the ash that forms the islands beauty, we walked in Oia and I learned some of the history, took some great photos, walked around Thira and end the 6 hours back at the starting point. I learned about the tomato factory, why the grapevines set low to the ground , about the wild thyme that grows in the countryside, there was so much he showed me and talked about. All of this and I never had to be subjected to the crowds of 7 cruise ships all at once on the island.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Dear Mrs Gina, Thanks a lot for the awesome 5-star review of our Santorini tour! We're so glad you enjoyed it. Can't wait to have you back for more adventures! Cheers, Ioannis
This tour made our trip. Can’t wait to go back to Santorini.
Melanie_M, Oct 2023
Bill was the best tour guide! I traveled with my two sisters the last week of September. We only had a limited time in Santorini during our cruise stop, and he made sure we maximized our time to see and do everything we wanted in our 6 hour tour. He asked us what we wanted to see/do and recommended places to make the most of our day. We stopped by the Black Sand Beach and lunch was delicious. He also perfectly planned sunset so we can see it before heading to Thira and back to our ship. This tour with Bill was a 20/10.

Great experience & fantastic guide!
Carlton_L, Oct 2023
Nico took great care of us. We saw the best views of Santori & took memorable pictures to remember our day. Nico navigated the busy streets like a pro. We all felt safe with him behind the wheel of his Mercedes Van. His great knowledge of Oia & the history behind this beautiful island was enlightening. This is an excellent way to see the island.

Fantastic way to see the best Santorini has to offer
James_F, Oct 2023
Our driver, Vassilis (Billie) made this tour. He is warm, personable, knowledgeable and funny with an obvious love and respect for the place he calls home. He shared this love and respect with us in a way that allowed us to understand and connect more deeply with both the place and the people. While we saw all the "major" sites, we also went places that were a bit more private and special which is no small feat in a place as small and crowded as Santorini. Our sunset spot in particular was breathtaking. The next day, we rented a car and went back to the places we were most interested in and visited at a more leisurely pace. Highly, highly recommended.

Learning what it is like to be Greek in Santorini.
Anita_W, Oct 2023
Bill our tour guide was fantastic. The group was just my husband and I. Bill took extremely good care of us. I felt as if Bill was an old friend I had known for years. Bill took us around Santorini showing us the highlights and then some of his favorite spots. We definitely got a great sense of the Greek culture and the experiences of living in Santorini. I would highly recommend this tour to new comers. Ask for Bill.
A spectacular VIP tour of the entire island of Santorini.
Mike_S, Sep 2023
Janus took us around the entire island of Santorini. He was knowledgeable and friendly, and his pace was steady and considerate. His car was comfortable and clean, and he was an excellent driver. He got us through the crowds, got us the perfect photos, and, overall, made Santorini an exceptional experience
It was the best!!

From the start Bill was very prompt on picking us up, very friendly and knowledgeable. He was amazing at explaining the culture and historical Places Santorini offers. He took great pictures of us. Bill went above and beyond. All of his suggestions did not disappoint. He made our trip worth it. Don’t ask for anyone else you won’t get better service.
Great tour wonderful guide.
