My fiancé and I had a great 4 hour trip with captain Panos yesterday afternoon. We could not have asked for a better guide and day in santorini. We started our tour swimming in the very hot springs of the caldera, next went to Thirassia where we were able to snorkel in the clear water while panos prepared out meal.... More

I booked Alex for a half day boat tour in July, 2014. Since I reserved the tour about six months ago, we kept in constant contact. We were extremely disappointed that the day of tour, the weather conditions were not acceptable and we were unable to take the boat trip. BUT, the way it was handled with talking to Alex... More

Good to be away from the usual people crowded tours and gift shops. Swim in the hot "springs" in the center of the volcano. Two other swims in crystal clear water. No yakkas so was very safe in the water. The tour part was very informative re the geological formation of the island. Panos is a great captain and host.... More

We were two couples who took out Alex for the day with Panos the skipper. It was well worth the 6 hours. He picked us up at Old Port Fira and dropped us back at Ammoudi bay as we requested. During the 6 ours we really saw the incredible island of Santorini by water - which was a very different... More

We had the pleasure of going on a half day private cruise with Panos at the end of June. This was a huge highlight in our 21 day trip. Panos immediately made us feel welcome on this adventure "Please, make this boat like your home". As everyone else mentioned, he is so kind, knows the island like the back of... More

Our three hour private cruise with Panos was the highlight of our Santorini trip! Not at all "touristy", he enlightened us with information about the caldera and Santorini while we cruised smoothly in his beautiful 35 foot boat. There was plenty of room to lounge, opportunities to swim, and of course his amazing food! While we swam in the clear... More

I cannot add much to all the adoring reviews before me. But, if you are thinking of doing his activity, do it. If you are labouring over costs, it's worth it. If you don't know if you will have a good time or not, you will. My husband and I were fortunate to be able to do the half-day private... More

Panos, our captain and tour guide, gave us the most amazing afternoon while in Santorini. Sharing his extensive knowledge of geology of the region while taking us to secluded hot springs and fantastic snorkeling spots made for an afternoon only topped by his preparation of an amazing six course lunch featuring native Greek dishes and his own family's cooked tomato...

My wife and I traveled to Santorini on our honeymoon and reserved a half-day sunset cruise. We looked forward to it for weeks and all of our expectations were exceeded. Panos provides a curated and truly private expedition by selecting the most beautiful locations, important highlights, and picturesque routes, all while avoiding larger/public tours. Panos is extremely knowledgeable about Santorini's... More

What an amazing tour of Santorini islands. This was the best toe on our trip. Panos was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the history of the island. Plus he is an amazing cook! I would not come to Santorini without taking a cruise with Panos. Snorkeling spots were off the beaten path and quiet. A must see tour in Santorini!
