    Our Driver and the Guide Marcos has done a tremendous job in making this tour a memorable one. The trip included all the main locations in the Island which made our experience complete.

    This tour was absolutely amazing. Theodore was our guide. We only had one day in Santorini and booked this private tour last minute. We were able to see the entire island and its best view points in 7 hours in an air conditioned car. We started in Oia, then went to Imerovigli, Fira, Firastefani, the ruins of the ancient city, the Red Sand Beach, the Black Sand Beach, Pyrgos, etc. We were able to learn some history of the city and understand its geography. We also stopped for lunch at an amazing restaurant by the lighthouse. Theodore was willing to take us wherever we wanted to go and do whatever we wanted to do. Highly recommend this tour and we found it the best way to see the entire island in one day.

    Our driver, Michael, was great! Very kind and very knowledgeable about the island. The car was comfy and he was a great driver. If any of you get Michael for your tour guide, you will be so lucky!

    Had wonderful time being shown the best of Santorini by someone who grew up there and knows the hidden ins and outs. Just can't say enough how accomplished and accommodating our guide was. Picked us up at airport and dropped us off after sunset. Wanted to know what we enjoy so he could tailor the tour.
    Thank you for the memories and great pictures.

    Amazing tour guide and tour. Was very knowledgeable, friendly, and went above and beyond his duties.

    We saw a lot of Santorini on the tour and really got to see the beauty of the island. They provided a car seat for our child and Theodore went at our pace. We had a really nice day.

    Santorini is a unique and beautiful island. Our private tour with Ted enabled us to have an inclusive look at Santorini. We were able to visit all of our priorities, red sand beach, black sand beach, Oia, Fira, and experience wine tasting and vineyards. Ted was so informative about the current island and the history of the island evolution. He was flexible and recommended an incredible winery for tasting and lunch. One of the most memorable and special days for my family to share together.

    My husband and I recently went on a Mediterranean cruise, and Santorini was one of the places I was most excited about. We decided to get a private driver/guide for the day am I so happy we did! Marcos met us in Fira and away we went! We literally covered one tip of the island to the other, as well as the highest and lowest points, and everything in-between! Marcos was knowledgeable about the island and had some fun stories to tell along the way. He also offered to take pictures of us, and recommended an amazing bakery and restaurant as well! I highly recommend choosing this excursion and Marcos if you only have 1 day on this beautiful island, you wont regret it!
