The crew was very nice and easy to talk with. They prepared amazing food and the drinks were good. The open bar was only wine, which is fine with me but others might be disappointed by that. There was a very chill vibe with a wonderful view of Santorini only able to be seen by boat. Highly recommend this experience. You wont be disappointed with the swimming opportunities near the black beach and the hot (slightly warmer...) springs.

I had one of the best days in Santorini, really enjoyed the trip and Dimitri was very helpful and fun. He explain everything to us and some historical facts which blowed our mind. Also he took an amazing pics to me and my husband. And in the end of our trip he gave us the beautiful blue eye as a gift becuz we were in honeymoon. If u ever wanted to discover santorini in one day, then don't miss this one!

The guide was very knowledgeable and told lots of stories about the island. Santorini is a great place for just relaxing on the beach, but if you want to soak in more than just the sun, this tour is perfect for getting to know the area.

Our tour guide Lily was very knowledgeable, welcoming and made the overall experience great. She made a group of strangers feel at home, laugh and have a good time whilst seeing the sights of Santorini.

Great crew and overall experience. Very friendly and helpful.
