great excursion. we really liked it. driving, exciting, informative. beautiful landscapes, interesting places that can then be re-examined in more detail. wonderful sightseeing tour of the island. and the organizers are very cool. but do not wear black clothes (!), take glasses and, possibly, a mask - there will be a lot of dust.

Superb hike certainly quite physical but allowing to better appreciate the spectacular landscapes and the cities. Our guide, Catherine was able to share with us her knowledge and her anecdotes in a very welcoming, very smiling and very cheerful way An excursion to recommend

It was a wonderful trek. Our guide Kostas was really nice and knowledgeable and had great stories to tell too. The trek is a little tricky at times but definitely no problem to complete it. Beautiful views and much fun.

The guided tour with Panos and Charlotte as our guides was the highlight of our trip to Santorini. The tour gave us the best way to see the island.

Nice way to explore the island. Benjamin was adorable and we had an amazing time in his company. Worth the money and time :)
