We visited Santorini as a port of call on a cruise. We felt that shore excursions offered by the cruise line would be both expensive and cumbersome sharing a bus with 40 fellow travelers. So we contacted Private Santorini Tours and arranged for a private excursion. Our group consisted of six travelers. We were met a the top of the cable car by Gregory, our private guide and taken to a new and comfortable Mercedes Benz minibus. He was an excellent guide, explaining many facets of life in the island and showing us the best spots, such as the red beach, Akrotiri, Imerovigli village and Oia. We had time for walking and taking photographs. We had an outstanding tour with Gregory and highly recommend Private Santorini Tours for anyone who wants to enjoy visiting Santorini.
