A successful day with many highlights. The La Ponta symposium in particular was worthwhile, because everyone could play an active part on "their" instrument. The walks to be made to the castles were not difficult to manage for people without physical disabilities. Only the enjoyment of the sunset in Oia was neglected due to the numerous tourists. It is also advisable to take a warm shirt with you because of the temperatures and the wind in the evening. All in all a very well organized day with a tour guide who was able to provide a lot of information and responded to the needs of the excursion participants. The number of participants was also well chosen for this type of excursion.

This tour was great as was our tour guide/driver Gregory. He was on time for pick up. He drove that van like a pro. He told us so many interesting stories about the history of Santorini as well as some insights into modern day Santorini society. Audio in the van was good (loud and clear) and I'm somewhat hard of hearing. The winery we visit had the most amazing sweet dessert wine that I had to buy a bottle (and I'm not a wine person at all). The castles and their ruins were so interesting so see. Definitely take this tour, with Gregory if possible, to get a better appreciation for Santorini.

First of all, the guide Gregory was one of the best guides if not the best guide we ever had in a trip: knowledgeable, kind and genuinely a nice guy. About the tour, there is a difference between "seeing" and "knowing".. and after this tour we felt we already know everything there is to know about Santorini. It was an excellent choice to make and I couldn't recommend it more, especially it's done in a small group so it's much more comfortable that way.

A visit in small groups (maximum 15 visitors) Support at the hotel very appreciable! Gregoris made us discover places a little off the beaten track and brought us lots of directions. We were delighted with this tour.

This tour was amazing The first walk up to the castle is a little challenging but very doable The music experience was amazing The wine tasting was my least favorite experience but enjoyable all the same
