Wonderful Experience!
, Jul 2018
Our guide was everything we could have hoped for. Interesting, knowledgeable, funny and energetic. The tour was designed to cover a wide variety of interesting locations and experiences. Loved the fact that our tour day ended with a wine tasting on the cliffs overlooking that magnificent caldera! I would recommend this group to anyone. Thank you!

Mildly interesting, but not riveting tour - great tour guide, but just not THAT much to see and appreciate. Good way to kill a few hours and become more familiar with interesting points about the island, but not must do

Gerry was an excellent, engaging and delightful guide for our half day tour of Santorini. It felt like we were getting the behind the scenes tour of the island, seeing sights and areas that we never would have seen on a more typical big bus tour. There were just the four of us and Gerry in his air conditioned mini-van and he was very flexible in taking us to what we most wanted to see. He was kind enough to take us to a great bakery to get a desired pastry we were after, and to the excellent Vassaltis winery for a delicious wine and cheese tasting. We loved our tour and felt very fortunate to have Gerry as our guide.

This was a good tour. The only concern was there was suppose to be a wine tour included. It did not seem like the guide was aware of this. She did take us to a winery, but they were not expecting us, and had to 'throw together' a quick little tour. It seemed totally unorganized and we were disappointed with this aspect of the tour. The guide and driver were both very good and helpful.

The only way to see Santorini! Mario and his staff were so professional, on time, had wonderful appointments for us and fun to be with! They met us in a beautiful clean van and wisked us away on our journey. the wineries we went to were wonderful, and we were greeted warmly at all. Lunch was just as wonderful, as we sat viewing the ocean from our table. The whole day really was Unbelievable! This is a must if you're going to Santorini! Thank you Mario for setting up a day we will always remember.
