What people are saying about Pyrgos Kallistis

See What Others Miss

This saved us a ton of time, and our guide showed us places most people miss. We asked our guide to give us a quick view of the island so we can revisit any of the places we saw later in our visit. We only had three days on the island, and this tour helped us see almost everything, *and* still have time to relax. Ask your guide to introduce you to Markopoulo, a roadside donkey at a tiny winery in Akrotiri, sample some of their food and wines while you’re there. * * Please avoid riding any donkeys. We saw many signs of physical abuse in three different groups of donkeys. * *

Our tour guide was absolutely wonderful! We had a few days in Santorini before our tour which we spent at the beaches. Our guide modified our plans because of that and rather than take us to places we had already seen he took us to a few extra places off the normal route! He was so very generous with his time and accommodations. I highly recommend this tour.
