We opted for a private tour for our family when our cruise ship docked in Santorini, and were very happy with our choice. Our guide met us at the top of the cable car station. We were lucky to be able to exit our ship early and caught the first cable car up. Because we were really quick, we did have to wait for our guide for a bit, but it allowed for us to see the view at the top before the crowds arrived. We had a mini-van for ourselves which was very comfortable and clean. We saw the classic sights of Santorini. We drove all around the island - visiting Oia, Fira, South eastern beach, ending our day at the Santorini Prophet Elias Monastery (highest peak). It was a beautiful day, with tons of amazing views and great information shared. We even got to see some of the grape vineyards (which are grown on the ground, not hanging vines). As it was a tour where we got to control our own pace, we were able to time it perfectly to catch the cable car back down to the ship before the long lines started. It was a great experience and would recommend the team!

I would recommend this to anyone heading to Santorini. We received text messages in advance arranging and confirming pick-up location. We were given clear instructions where to go and when to meet. At the tip of the cable car, we were met by Spiros (our guide) who was easy to find, very friendly and spoke understandable english. Spiros grew up in the area, so was very familiar with sites that we would and should see within the allotted tour time. He drove us around the island in a very comfortable van and told us excellent information about the history of the island. We visited the Red Beach, Black Beach, Oia and Pyrgos. We also stopped at the Donkey brewery for a quick beer tasting and souvenir pick up. We enjoyed fresh greek dishes, and delicious calamari at lunch on the beach. A must do if you are visiting the island.

My family and I had an amazing time. Ares is the best! The van was really comfortable and is definitely the best way to get around to see the whole island. Thank you for a memorable day.

We arrived a little early for our tour and the company sent our driver right away. Our driver, Aris, was so accommodating. He asked us what we wanted to do, gave us options on where to go and what to do first. He took us to the black sand beach, where we spent a couple of hours, drove us to the monestery, we went to the red beach, we walked through a residential part of the town and we ended with a sunset dinner. We got away from all the crowds. He was friendly and put up with us 6 ladies with a smile the whole time. It was one of our favorite excursions.

This tour was all that we had hoped for and more!! Kostas was our personal guide and he was amazing!! He allowed us to basically design our own tour based on what we wanted to do! He is very knowledgeable, and took us to a few spots that only locals know about!! His English was very good which made this tour even more enjoyable! We Highly recommend this tour!
