“They were very prompt at returning emails, they were very reasonable in their fees and their guide was very personable, fun and informative!”
“Before arriving in Santorini I was in continuous contact with Kathrin via phone and email, fine-tuning the details of what we wanted to see and coordinating the tour. She even made suggestions for local restaurants and helped me make reservations! She was always accessible and offered what was essentially a concierge experience for us.”
“Kathrin was very competent and agile to accommodate all the short notice changes we were forced to do to our scheduled tour.”
“This company treated us like family from the beginning. They were very quick to respond and went above and beyond to help us arrange transportation. Kathrin arranged our trip with much attention to detail.”

Read on to see what our guests thought about our guides this season:
“He was so knowledgeable and accommodating to our interests. We instantly struck up a friendship and thoroughly enjoyed his personality and passion. We have traveled all over the world and he is an all-star guide.”
“Dimitris is so friendly and doesn't hesitate to share his knowledge on Santorini with us. It was a fun trip where we talked and laughed throughout. Highly recommend Dimitris :)”
“Marco, our tour guide, was professional, polite, extremely knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor, and perfect in every way. We were thrilled that he was able to connect with our kids (12 and 13) who were immediately comfortable with him and loved his sense of humor. Marco tailored the tour to our tastes and we never felt pressured for time. That was an awesome experience all four of us will remember forever! Marco was a true gentleman and a pleasure. It felt like our cousin was giving us a personalized tour of the island!”
“Marcos was a very engaging tour guide who taught us about the history of Santorini and shared interesting cultural facts as well. He took us to two different wineries where we had private tours and tastings. He also took us to an overlook for a beautiful view of Santorini. Marcos did everything he could to ensure that we had a fabulous time. He is very dedicated to his work and is committed to getting to know people and giving them an authentic experience.”
“Santorini is quite the site, but what she provided made it so much more special. Sabine knows the history so well and explained it in such detail it really allowed us to visualize how the island was formed and how the people have survived.”
“How to describe this tour? Getting picked up by your best friend, getting the up close and personal tour of his home and having him passionately give the history and local culture of the island.”
We not only have a five-star rating on TripAdvisor, but also many recommendations from our previous guests that it’s easy to see why we stand out from the rest. Here’s just a few comments from this past season where guests share their experience and what they encountered:
“I cannot say enough good things about this tour. We learned so much about the history of the island and got to see places we hoped to see and much more! If you're reading this and wondering whether to book this tour, just do it! You will not be disappointed. It really was one of the highlights of our trip!!”
“Best Tour Ever! I would recommend him 100%. Tour was awesome, we saw everything in Santorini.”
“Wow! Booking this tour was one of the best decisions we made while in Greece!”
“We had such an incredible time on our wine tour and cooking class with Santorini Experts. This was a highlight of our time in Santorini and we would highly recommend this tour.”
“What really sets Santorini Experts apart is how warm and hospitable they were. They truly embody the idea of philoxenia. When we visited Santorini, I was initially reluctant to hire a private tour. In retrospect, I am so happy that I did. All four of us had an incredible experience that we will always remember.”
“Most Memorable Experience of Our Trip! If you're visiting Santorini, do yourself a favor and hire Santorini Experts.”
“Stunning island. Fantastic tour. Would Highly recommend!!! Thank you Marcus we loved you.”
“Santorini was a day stop on our cruise. We loved having a private tour because we got to do several things on the island versus doing only 1 thing through the cruise line (for the same price and in a Small air conditioned vehicle vs a large crazy bus). Definitely recommend this!!!”
That is just a few of the tremendous amount of reviews and recommendations that we received this season. Check us out on TripAdvisor for more. Then, look over our website to see what tour fits your desires best, while always keeping in mind that they are customizable to you.
