Amazing experience, beautiful views, and interesting information about local areas and history. We went on a tour with Michael (different from owner) and he was absolutely fantastic. Very well spoken, very kind, and very knowledgeable. We learned a lot, got to see some of the best parts of Santorini and got insider information about how to go about the rest of our trip. Highly recommend for right when you get to Santorini - if you are staying more than a few days, you will definitely use the information you get here to explore more.

Michalis is an amazing guide! He was thoughtful and knowledgeable about the history and culture of the island. I especially appreciated how on this tour we were able to visit multiple landmarks across the island that weren’t confined to one area.

This was a very personal tour. We visited places I know we would not have seen otherwise. We had a situation occur that required us to end our tour early and Michael was BEYOND HELPFUL!!!

This experience was amazing! Michael was a perfect guide and we felt more like friends at the end. He had such great insight into the history and culture of Santorini and answered every question we had. He was so approachable so we asked a lot of questions. We got to know a lot about each other on a personal level and it turns out we both are dog owners - we even got to meet his dog near the end of the tour! The locations were places we would not have gone on our own - the whole experience was top notch. DO THIS TOUR!!!
