This was the best afternoon in Santorini. 30 year-old husband/wife from NYC. We had Panos take us for a 4-hour trip in the afternoon, ending with the sunset from out in the water near ammoudi bay. He takes you around the interior volcanic rocks and tells you the history. He takes you to this unreal, basically private hot spring area... More

From the jump Panos was incredibly friendly and welcoming. He made sure that we were comfortable and understood that the boat and time was ours. He did not have a set agenda and we never felt as thought he was just crossing sites off the list and killing time until the tour was over. He always explained what he was... More

One of the days of our honeymoon trip, we booked Panos and Dimitri for a private charter around Santorini. It was one of the most memorable and fun days of our entire trip! We swam in the hot springs next to the volcano, snorkeled in the clear water next to the white island and watched the sunset on the water.... More

I found out about Captain Panos and his boat from trip advisor, and I saw that he got lots of "excellent" reviews, and I totally agree with those reviews. Captain Panos have a great experience in the sea and know the good places , and he propose ideas for your trip and do it if you agree. We had a... More

These guys are brilliant. The service is excellent and their charm, humor and skills made the trip a real highlight of our holiday. Very knowledgeable and flexible in terms of itinerary, timing etc. we booked a private sunset charter which included a swim in the (real) hot springs, and very tasty mezze. Highly recommended.

Last European Summer myself & 4 friends took this tour & it was one of the best decisions we ever made in life! I'd visited Santorini 3 times prior but this tour showed me a whole new level of Santorini. Panos is the BUSINESS! He was such a humble & knowledgeable captain. His sole aim was to ensure we had...

This was the highlight of our time in santorini! We loved panos! He took us around the caldera, let us swim in the "real hot springs" cooked up lunch and gave us a sweet tour of santorini and the surrounding islands. We're from Canada and booking the boat from thousands of miles away was no problem! We meet panos at... More

Found Panos through trip advisor this past summer and with all the excellent reviews we HAD to book. On vacation celebrating my 30th birthday, Panos made our half day boat tour the highlight of our trip! At first he comes off a little aggressive as most Greeks are but once he has fully introduced himself and his itinerary and everyone... More
