“Enjoyable private tour, very reasonable prices”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We booked a private 4 hour tour through NST during June 2013, being picked up from the airport and dropped off to our hotel afterwards. Prior to the tour, Tassos was very quick to deal with any queries via email. Our guide on the day was Valsamos. Although he seemed quiet initially, he soon warmed up to us and turned out to be a lovely guy who was very knowledgeable about Santorini.

Stops on our tour included Profetes Elias mountain (the highest point of the island), red beach, black beach, a local winery, and a couple of other quick stops for photos. We finished the tour in Oia (where we were staying), and Valsamos spent a bit of time taking us around here as well. He was always volunteering to take photos of us throughout the day, which was appreciated.

The only negative of the day was he was about 15 minutes late to pick us up from the airport. On the plus side, he did end up spending about 4.5 hours with us, instead of the agreed 4 hours.

When booking these kinds of activities, I generally start with the highest rated company on Tripadvisor. At the time, there were a few operators rated higher than NST. I chose NST because their reviews were very good, but also because their prices were much more competitive than many others whom I received quotes from. I was surprised at some quotes I received from other companies, which were as high as €75/hour, or even €100/hour (which was the quote from my hotel). NST was much more reasonable, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

“Excellent Driver & Custom Tour!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

First, the van was clean and comfortable.
Valsamos was our driver and guide - excellent performance.
He took us where we wanted to go and customized the tour per our requests and interest.
He knows Santorini well and he asked enough questions to be certain of our desires.

We wanted a quick snack and drink in the middle of the tour.
He took us to a great place - a winery with a walk up window, a full restaurant, and a great store.
But a tour/tasting was not required.

During the search for a good company I can state that email communication was friendly, thorough, with very prompt response times. And it was accurate. And he followed up for our comments, so I think they seriously desire to be a top company.

“Enthusiastic!!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

We just came back from our Mediterranean cruise by Celebrity Silhouette, we were in Santorini on Tuesday 07 of May, (very busy day for the island). We hire their 8 seater van and the driver Valsamos for our tour in Santorini. We are all so pleased with him, that i write my first review in TripAdvisor! Valsamos were very polite, homegrown, he could answer us, any question we had.
He led us in perfect places for photos, red beach, Akrotiri excavations and the beautiful village of Oia! Keep doing your perfect job!

We will be back, for sure :-)

“Best way to explore the island!Very reasonable rates!”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

We book our tour, 10 0f us, in Santorini with NST Tours, Tassos was very quick to reply all our emails and help us with all our questions. Our driver was Antony, wait for us at the cable car with our sign, we found him very quick, despite there are so many people there. He was very very polite, homegrown and smiley all the time and very friendly to answer us all enquiries about beautiful island and places where visit. The vehicle was very clean and very comfortable for all our party. To conclude, we were very happy to choose them for our private tour in Santorini!! Totally recommended!!

“Very reasonable and enjoyable tour!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

E-mail correspondences to his company were promptly answered promptly and our request for seeing an additional site not on his original tour list was accepted easily. I have nothing to complain about this company. Thomas, part owner of the company, met us on time at the top of the cable car station. He is very friendly, down to earth and the 8 of us all enjoyed the tour.
We went in late November and our cruise ship is one of the last ships to visit the island. Even though many of the shops were closed, the scenery was breathtaking and we still enjoyed walking in the uncrowded narrow alleys of Firo and Oia. With less tourists around, it made it easier for picture taking.
