This place is amazing considering it has just been discovered about 40 years ago and only 5-10% or so has been excavated. Imagine what other treasures lie there. We had a 1.5 hours private guided tour with Ms Ismini. There was 6 of us and...More

We went here without purchasing a guided tour. It was only 45 minutes long for 10euros per person. Figured that's a lot for such a short tour. BUT, to be quite honest, you don't really get much out of this place unless you get the...More

We visited the ancient Minoan ruins at Akrotiri by getting a taxi from Perivolos for 18 euros. We arrived there early to avoid the tourist buses and this enabled us to have a very leisurely walk around the fully covered remains. We didn't have a...More

Our guide uncovered the layers of excavation process, the plumbing, the streets, the storied homes and business of this historical community. The guide's thoughtful organization on structures in front of...More

The tour was insightful and delivered with humour. I was suprised just how big the site was and this was only a small portion of the full site. Highly recommend and enjoyable. The tour was inside so if you were unlucky enough to get a...More

We did a tour through Kamari Tours which included a visit to Prophet Elias mountain, Megalachori traditional village, Perivolos black beach, Akrotiri excavation site and Santo Winery for tour and tasting. The tour was amazing, not a huge amount of walking but nice to see...More

This was amazing. A friendly and very clued up young lady took us around this awesome sight. It is so mind blowing to see this city in such good condition and realise that its almost 4000 years old. To see 5 storey buildings, a loo,...More

The tour guide was poor. Her details and facts were continually repetitive. She mentioned at least a dozen times 'Very terrible Volcanic eruptions' Is there any other kind. We were on a half day tour thankfully but we met some Aussies who were on the...More

Not entirely certain why Trip Advisor has the guided tour feedback separate from the site itself. Nevertheless, I left feedback on the site recommending taking the guided tour. Our guide was Penny who was exceptional. There are painfully few explanatory signs on site and you...More
