I took the 5 hour private tour option of Santorini with my family (wife and two young daughters). Marcos was waiting for us at the airport to pick us up and proceeded to give my family the most wonderful day we have had on a tour. He was kind, courteous and extremely knowledgeable about Santorini. He was able to win over my 4 year old daughter who doesn't normally talk to strangers she has just met. He took us to all the major photo stops, but also took wonderful pictures of our family together. Kallisti tours was by no means expensive and the booking/arranging of the tour was very easy too. Stella (Kallisti's operations manager) was very helpful in giving us the right option for our tour. Marcos and Stella are wonderful assets to the team, but Kallisti tours for Santorini is one that I would totally recommend (as they customize the day to meet your needs and do everything in a comfortable, easy going way). Well done and thank you!

IWe booked the tour one week before we would arrive by cruise. Stella replied promptly to emails. Our driver Theodore was already waiting for us by the exit of the cable cart. He gave us a warm welcome to Santorini. He took us to his clean, air conditioned van, and provided us with bottled water. He first drove us to Oia, before it would get too busy. He asked if we were interested in visiting the Donkey Brewery, which we did. Then he brought us to the monestary; from where you have a beautiful view of Santorini. Then we stopped by the black pebble beach, and made our way back to Fira . Theodore is very knowledgeable about the island and answered all our questions. He stayed with us the whole time, whilst telling us about the history of Santorini. We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend to book with Kalissti Tours. Thank you Theodore for making Santorini a great memory!

Theodore was brilliant and very charming. We didn’t really know what we wanted to do but in a short time we had a plan. We saw Oiea and Theodore was able to navigate us around the crowds. The final stage was watching the sunset with a wine tasting at the Santos winery - brilliant recommendation from Theodore. Thanks
