The tour around the island was insightful and covered a lot. It is a good way to see the island before going to explore yourself. The wine tasting was good and the guide was very informative and entertaining. Sunset at Oia was stunning, however it is a place that can become extremely busy, especially when people try to leave. Bear this in mind if needing to get back to the coach for the drive home.

Lily was passionate and a fabulous local host who had all the hookups! She even yelled to her mom and her literal mom walked out and waived to us while we were walking from a winery in her village, can’t get much more local than that! Sunset bars in Oia can be chaotic and she made us feel pleasantly pampered, we had front row seats! She let us stop for snacks and we all had such a blast. I will say they didn’t notify us of our pickup until I emailed, which was weird with Get Your Guide and they didn’t know our hotel etc., so make sure they get that sorted out prior, emailing or calling was easy but it stresses us out a bit when we thought we had to walk 40 mins to catch our ride.

Perfect day in Santorini! We visited many of the local highlights and even enjoyed the beach! Our guide was informative without talking too much. It was delightful to spend the day with her. Our bus driver was outstanding! The vehicles were very nice. Highly recommend this excursion!
Lily was a fantastic guide. The tour is very well balanced with several interesting information about the island. It would have been nice to have had more time to reach the private bus after the sunset in Oia. But despite this we are able to see everything within the time frame.
Excellent day ! Discovery of perfect Santorini, beautiful places in the villages and beaches of the island! the bus driver is top notch, as well as the exceptional guide Christina! Good experience !!
We had a great, almost private tour as there were only four of us. Many thanks to Christina and Nikos, you did a great job. Since we were only in Santorini for 2 days, the tour was perfect
The trip was great. Our tour guide was friendly and told us interesting facts about Santorini.
