Kostas was a phenomenal tour guide! He was a wealth of knowledge about Greece, and especially Santorini. He customized our tour to what we wanted to see. He was a great photographer as well, and photographed us along the way with my phone. He took us to the famous photo locations and told us where to get the best pictures. I would highly recommend Kostas for your next trip to Santorini!!

Absolutely wonderful guided experience. So much knowledge and insight from our guide, Dimitris. He was funny, personable, and really did a great job of showing us SO MUCH of Santorini. Would absolutely recommend tours! We also got a chance to meet Kostas on our tour and he was very kind and we know we would have been in good hands with him too. Do yourself a favor and book a tour and experience Santorini with an expert!

We are 2 couples from the US on a cruise who had 1 day to see Santorini. We hired Kostas based on a recommendation by Rick Steves. I’d echo the comments of the last review before mine. We felt like we couldn’t have had a better experience. We learned more about the history and culture of this island in 6 hours with Kostas than we could have any other way. Kostas efficiently and comfortably drove us to all the famous photo op spots and expertly took or helped us take great pictures. It was hot and humid, and at one point I was wondering if we should have chosen the 4 hour vs. 6 hour tour. However, the highlight for us was the Akrotiri archaeological museum and the drive through the beach area in the south part of the island. I think most people want to see Oia, which is beautiful, but miss out if they don’t see Akrotiri with a guide like Kostas. He gave so much more meaning to the site than if we’d simply gone on our own. My only regret is that we didn’t think to take a picture of us with Kostas!

We had a wonderful experience touring with Kostas! We enjoyed the custom made tour for two very much. Kostas is a very knowledgeable guide. He told us a lot about the history of ancient Thira and modern Santorini. He is very passionate about Greek and Minoian civilization. We've rarely met a guide with his kind of expertise and ability to share his knowledge. Highly recommended.

Through Kostas we discovered both the highlights and the “hidden gems” of Santorini in a relaxed pace and varied settings. Highlights for us were the wine tasting, walking through Megalachori, and the visit to Akitori. Kostas was engaging and a delight to tour with - he even managed to keep my 17 year old engaged - no small feat! And he had great photography skills to boot!
