Andreas and Natalia were great. This tour is perfect way to see Santorini and feel like you saw all of the island. Going first thing in the morning allows you to go see Oia before the cruise ships arrive. It’s so nice to have Andreas drive & Natalia describe what you are going to see. One of our favorite parts was going to Art Space Winery https://artspace-santorini.com/. The tour is so interesting and learning about how the grapes grow and how they make their wines while strolling through the art is very cool. We finished with lunch at the Black Sand Beach Perissa. Very neat to see. For a family of 4-6, this is the best bargain in Santorini. I would recommend to people going to Santorini their first and additional times.

This was a great experience and allowed us to see more parts of Santorini that we otherwise would not have been able to see or get to. We were able to customize the stops that we made, so we saw places like Akrotiri, Imerovigli, Santo Wines, the beach, and the village of Megalochori. We were very happy with the amount of customization and the care and attention we received from the driver and our tour guide, Nick. We highly recommend this experience for anyone interested in seeing more of Santorini beyond the main tourist locations.

Fantastic tour and guide. Great tour for our group of 4 ranging in ages from 13 - 67. Some of the terrain was challenging for the 67 year old in our party, but that's just the nature of the landscape of the island. Wear comfortable shoes with good stability and if you are wearing a hat, hold onto it tightly! Its a windy island.

Wonderful experience. Chris and his partner were great hosts. We met lovely people in our small group. Dinner time was like a family meal, and the food was great too. Plenty of time to swim, take pictures, eat and drink. Oh, and the beautiful sunset was worth it all. Absolutely amazing experience.

Very informative, pleasant and fun. Delicious food and Chris was a great chef/teacher. Stavros was excellent. Highly recommend this outing
