This was our favorite thing we did on our trip to Greece. The ruins are well preserved with no scaffolding at the moment unlike the ruins in Athens. And the ropes allow you to get pretty close for great pictures. It's placed on a hill top overlooking the ocean, making it a gorgeous setting at sunset. There was a restaurant, store, and bathrooms at the stop also. Teddy was an energetic guide and a wealth of information. Nothing negative to say about it. This is a must while in Athens.

Our guides Manolis and Mini were absolutely fantastic. They were knowledgeable but more importantly they were engaging. They took us to amazing places we would never have found ourselves which were owned by local independent people rather than the big chains which made it even more special. We went for the private tour so were able to discuss everything from living in Greece to world history and politics. Would definitely recommend

Easy to purchase and 100% when they say you SKIP THE LINE! I turned up at about 8.30am and there weren’t many people in the line but when I left at 10am there were at least 70/80. Buying my ticket online and being able to just show it at the gate saved me a lot of time if I had turned up later.

Excellent tour! We appreciated that our guide, Stelios, had a background in archeology and gave us detailed explanations of everything we saw. He was enthusiastic and had great energy, too! Two hours was the perfect amount of time.

I had a fantastic experience! The instructors were very helpful and kind. They were very patient and ensured that everyone felt comfortable during the dive. Definitely my favorite experience from my time in Santorini!
