Amazing day in Santorini. Well organised, everything is taken care of so you can relax and enjoy the views. The boat trip is really comfortable and the tour guides explain everything. Plenty of opportunities for superb photos. Skip the recommended restaurants and walk further along for quieter restaurants with equally amazing views. Take cash for drinks and snacks on the boat and a charging pack so you can take loads of photos without the worry of running low on battery. This is a once in a lifetime trip that you will not regret.

Our guide, Lydia, was extremely knowledgeable and very kind and helpful. The driver, Alex, was very prompt in picking us up at our hotel. And the company itself is very very good at communicating all information in a timely manner. You never have to guess when or if something is scheduled or confirmed.

We enjoyed our tour very much. Our tour guide, Lydia, was absolutely wonderful. She was very knowledgeable about the island and history. Highly recommend this tour to learn about/explore the entire island in a day and visit all of the important sites.

Very nice tip. Very friendly staff. We tried very hard to make it as pleasant as possible.

Uncomplicated process, very well-informed guide. We liked it a lot.
