After contacting Kostas and informed he was booked, he recommended a colleague. Efi Papazar provided a wonderful day. She was very flexible and gave us extra time when we needed it. She is very knowledgeable about Santorini. We saw the major points of interest and Efi gave us a true picture of the island. While the weather was not ideal,... More

Kostas was incredibly kind, helpful, informative, and FUN! He picked us up right from the port, drove us up for what can only be described as post-card views, dropped us off for an hour+ in Oia just before sunset to avoid the largest of the masses and crowds, then took us to watch the incredible sunset from a winery. It... More

Our group of 6 had a marvellous 6-hour tour with Kostas in September and it's hard to add to all the well-deserved praise in the previous reviews. I echo all the comments about his knowledge of Santorini, his flexibility with the tour itinerary and photo-taking abilities! The special difference about Kostas is his attentiveness and genuine interest in the people... More

Kostas made our trip to Santorini memorable. He drove us through Fira, politely and knowledgeably answering our questions along the way. The weather was not cooperating. He timed our tour well so much so that he spent time in Akrotiri which is an indoor exhibit, complete with detailed pictures from his iPad and explaining about the artifacts found in the... More

Kostas was amazing. I actually have put off writing this review as I find it hard to properly put into words how wonderful our day was in Santorini. Right off the back, Kostas was efficient and very easy to communicate with via email. I never had any doubts that we were booking with the best of the best. On the... More

We contacted Kostas to try to arrange a tour for our recent cruise visit to Santorini. He was unavailable but immediately provided us contact information for a colleague, Efi Papazar. We were able to line up a tour with Efi who was quick to respond to our email, wonderfully fun, and very knowledgeable. If Kostas is not available, ask him... More

There isn't much more that can be said about how touring with Kostas is a great tour and really having a great time with him. We were in Santorini for a couple of day's for my wife's birthday and took a tour with Kostas. The last stop on our tour was the winery. While we were having our tasting, Kostas... More

Kostas was excellent and provided a fabulous tour of Santorini and Akrotiri. Highly recommended. He was very knowledgeable on all aspects of the island history, geography and culture. His vehicle was clean, comfortable and roomy. Could not have been happier.

We spent six hours with Kostas and felt like we had made a wonderful new friend. He is also very knowledgable and gave us a good mix of sites, culture, history, etc. Do the drive around the south island plus Akrotiri in Santorini. He knows his stuff. Worth every penny.

What a delightful chap Kostas is. My wife and I spent 5 hours with him yesterday and the amount he added to our enjoyment of the island was huge. For example, at the ruins of Akrotiri he had an iPad full of pictures of some of the artefacts taken from the site but either in other museums or not on... More
