Review for Santorini Full Day Tour
Beautiful Day in Santorini

My daughter and I spent a lovely day on Santorini with our guide Katherine and driver Alex. Katherine picked us up at the top of the funicular (we left our cruise ship as early as possible on a tender) and actually arrived a little early – a miracle. Our first stop was Oia, a gorgeous city with a wealth of blue domed churches to photograph and beautiful scenery. Katherine walked us up and down the main street, giving us history and anecdotes and taking lots of pictures of us since her hobby is photography. Pyrgos was a lovely, uncrowded town and the lunch at 41 on the Black Sand Beach was very good with a stunning view. A very relaxing day with a great guide and driver, followed by a long line to descend the funicular.

Half day Santorini private tour

We booked online a half-day trip for a group of six people with Santorini private tours. They take us from JTR airport. The driver drove us to the hidden places of Santorini. The minibus was new with leather seats and very spacious, with good air conditioning. We had a great tour!

Review for Santorini Full Day Tour
Totally enjoyable after the dreaded hike!

After hiking up the hill with mules everywhere (not a fun experience) our tour guide, Stefanos met us at the top and he and his driver took us on a wonderful tour of the island. We started out in Fira and then to Oia and although we didn’t see the sunset we avoided the crowds and got some beautiful pictures. We then traveled to the monastery at the highest point on the island, although cloudy it was fun. We then went to a black sand beach and had a wonderful dinner at a restaurant called Forty One on the beach. On returning to Fira town we saw a wonderful start to the sunset and after departing our tour and descending down the hill to the dock we saw another beautiful sunset. Stefanos and the driver (forgot his name) were knowledgeable and kept us laughing and interested the entire trip. Highly recommend this excursion. (Hint he’s from Canada)
