Our semi-private day tour of Santorini with Blue Shades of Greece, recommended by our hotel, Astra Suites, was the best tour we have had in all our travels! We were a group of seven ( maximum number) spending the entire day together.
While the locations we visited were wonderful, the highlight was truly our guide, Billy! Billy is the friendliest, cheeriest guide who gave us the most incredible day, one we will never forget! He loves his job and his joy of sharing Santorini with those who want to learn about the island, the history and its people. Every moment with Billy was a true joy!
The tour lasts approximately 7 hours, pickup and dropoff at our hotel. Main attractions included: visit to Pyrgos village / visit to Megalochori village / 1 hr stop at Akrotiri excavation / drives through Vlychada Beach and Perivolos black beach / wine tasting and food pairing at winery ( 1 .5 hrs) / walking visit to Oia.
It's a wonderful way to see so much of the island, you are traveling from end to end of Santorini which gives an amazing perspective while learning so much at the same time.
You can also arrange your own custom tour of sightseeing and they will work with you to arrange a tailor-made tour.
We cannot recommend Blue Shades of Greece highly enough, and this tour. But Billy made our day a wonderful experience and we feel we have made a new friend for life. Thank you to Lefty and Billy, and we hope to return to see you again!
