Our group of four were met by Kostas first thing in the morning. Enjoyed beautiful vistas without the crowds along with information about the island, present and past. Felt he customized the tour for our group. We visited most of the island including the ruins, beaches, monastery, winery, a short stop at a local farm stand for a snack, and... More

It was summer and the island was crowded. Although there are local buses made available to the more famous parts of the island, Kostas has brought us to 'photo stops' (some hidden) ,which we would not have come across by ourselves. Even when our private group was split into 3 different hotels in Fira, he was able to shuttle all... More

Kostas was flexible about meeting us and about our priorities. He also sized us up very quickly, was able to tailor his discussion around our interests and questions. Great guide, felt like we were with a knowledgeable and passionate friend.

I choose Kostas after reading the reviews. We are no regret. He is GREAT! very experience. He is not only a driver but also a tour guide and a GREAT PHOTOGRAPHER. Thanks to Kostas, we have lots of group photos. He has provided useful information and also estimate the time about when he will meet us after our cruise ship... More

Why spend your precious time stumbling around Santorini trying to see the Island with little context. With Kostas,you see and appreciate it all in 6 hours . He has a wealth of information,stories and anecdotes that only a local has. He brings the excavated ruins of Akrotiri to life,alone it would have been boring and of little value. He knows... More

Kostas gave us a great day. He was prompt at the cable car exit as agreed. He was talkative and warm from the outset. His Mercedes mini-van was more than enough room for the four of us. He planned the day to avoid as much of the crowd as possible -- which was hard given that there were three cruise... More

Kostas led us to his 8 seater mini van-perhaps overkill for the 2 of us but if you can get a group together will work out cheaper. Kostas suggested we both sit up front with him on the double passenger seat so as to get the best views. First stop was at a scenic point in Fira where could get... More

Our private tour of Santorini with Kosta was phenomenal! His knowledge of this beautiful island and it's history, along with his excitement at every stop has made our first visit to Santorini unforgettable! The photo ops were incredible and he always offered to take our picture at every location. Immediately after Kosta picked us up at our hotel, his personality... More

Our family trip (2 grandmas in late 70s, 2 parents in 50s, 2 sons in early 20s) providing many logistical, emotional, and energetic opportunities for engagement. Kostas was FANTASTIC. He provided a familial, historical, anthropological, and cultural perspective on the island that totally connected us to this beautiful. I was thoroughly pleased with the service, the attention to detail, the... More

We met Kostas right at the top of the cable car and he spent the day driving us around in a comfortable air conditioned van. He carefully explained the history of the island and showed us many things that we would have never known were there. He knew all of the great spots to take photos and those are the... More
