Gregory was awesome! We learned so much about Santorini. We booked this tour after our catamaran trip was cancelled the day before due to weather and we wanted to make sure we still got to experience the island. We are so glad we did!! It was way better than the catamaran. We were able to see all the historical sites on the island including the black sand beach and enjoy a delicious lunch on the beach. I highly recommend this tour for anyone vacationing in Santorini.

I couldn't have been happier with this tour! I booked it for 6 people and everyone said it was a highlight of our 5 island trip! Our guide took us to many places (both on my list and sights I didn't know). He shared his knowledge and experience, directing us to what we'd want to see and where we should linger. He was very helpful and friendly, too. Our private tour was a great value. I have been recommending this experience to everyone I know. Truly wonderful.

Gregory was very good and knowledgeable. He taught us all about the history of the island. We really enjoyed our day spent with them! Would definitely recommend 10/10. Thank you again Gregory and Kostas.

Great experience with great stops. It was really a lot of fun
