I cannot recommend this tour or our tour guide, Mary, enough. The tour was the perfect balance of local history and culture, and delicious wine. Mary was so knowledgeable and passionate about Santorini; it made our day with her informative, engaging and incredibly fun. We had a fabulous day and would absolutely recommend you spend a day with Mary on your next trip to Santorini! (I will be back whenever she offers a Local Cats of Santorini tour :) )

Great day out. Highly recommended. Transfer came to collect us to bring us to the board. Your guide was brilliant. Valcano was amazing. Swimming was gorgeous. Food was OK. Sunset was incredible from the water. Transfer waiting when we got off to bring us home. 10 out of 10

The value of the trip is amazing ! Our tour guide, Elisa, is very knowledgeable about the island and proud of her job. Recommended to someone looking to learn about tour some great points around the island.

The boat trip is very long takes 3 hours to get there, it can be busy with tourists etc when you get there. However it was a good trip and definitely worth doing if you would like to see Santorini.
