Maria_T, Apr 2024
This is a 10-hour tour all over the island with various sites and activities. Beyond a great value! Our tour guide was passionate about the island and its history.
A great day exploring Santorini
Cecile_G, Apr 2024
It was a great day exploring Santorini and learning more about its history. Our guide was great and very knowledgeable. Everything went smoothly and it was 100% the best way to discover the island in one day for anyone who's there only for a short time. I enjoyed everything we did, Akrotiri, the village of Emporio was gorgeous I absolutely loved it! The wine tasting as well was a great experience. My only regret was that the last part in Oia was on our own, I would have actually appreciated to have a guide there to give us more directions, explanations etc... But apart from that, everything was great and would definitely recommend the experience!
Oia was good and the...

An amazing overview of the Island of Santorini with just about the best tour director you could hope for. Christina knew so much, was delightful, engaging, and funny. There is a lot of walking so be prepared, and if heights isn't your thing maybe take a pass on the drive up the mountain!
Great full day excursion

I bought this day trip to celebrate my best friend's birthday, it was an amazing experince, beyond our expectations. Our tour guide Christina told us a lot about the history of Santorini, whole day was perfectly organized, we've seen a lot! (Akrotiri Archaeological site, Castelli of Emporio, beach at Perissa, Medieval village at Pyrgos, Local winery in Santorini, Oia with the most beautiful restaurants, shops and the sunset)! I would definitely recommend this day trip to anyone, who is interested to learn about the history, culture and take the most beautiful, breathtaking pictures of this gorgous island. Thank you - we hope to come back soon again!
