My husband and I were in Santorini on a shore excursion. This was the highlight of our cruise so we wanted to make sure we made the best of it. Cruise excursions are so scheduled and limited and we wanted to truly enjoy the island. So we opted for a private tour . . . and so glad we did!
Nick was very quick to respond to our request and set us up right away. And when we asked to have our photos done while on our tour, he sent Petros as our guide who also works as a photographer.
We were met right on time and given options of what to see. Our guide and driver Petros was wonderful and showed us all the best of Santorini.
When we returned home, our photos were ready as promised. They came out fabulous.
We plan on returning to Santorini for a stay in the next year and most definitely will be coordinating with Private Santorini Tours and Nick to set things up.

We have always wanted to go to Santorini and arrived by cruise ship in the middle of July. It was very very busy with tourists and we were really glad to have our own private driver to take us away from the crowds in the opposite direction to the large cruise ship buses. George took us to Red Beach, Black Beach, Oia and another small town. We really wanted to try local food. George organised stuffed tomatoes near black beach that were divine (What was that restaurant called George?). He also took us for sensational baclava in Oia.

If you go when it is busy I would definitely recommend you book a trip with George

We wanted a private tour of Santorini on our Princess cruise, and I found Private Santorini tours on Trip Advisor. We booked the Grand Island tour, and it was outstanding. Gregory, our guide, picked us up in Fira and took us everywhere on the island. He was the perfect guide! We loved the view of the entire island on top of Profitis Ilias, the Red Beach, the archaeological sites of Ancient Thira, The Museum of Prehistoric Thira, wine tasting and lunch, and finally Oia. It was a long, wonderful day with Gregory. Thank you Gregory for making our visit to Santorini so enjoyable. The four of us will remember this day as perfect! A private tour is the way to go!

Following a search of websites for the perfect shore excursion on Santorini I found Private Santorini Tours - and yes it was perfect. George met our family party of 6 at the cable car at Fira and took us around the beautiful sites of Santorini. He arranged for us to join with another small group to have a guided tour through the historic site at Akrotiri - a journey back to another time. The trip also took us to amongst other things the Red and Black Beaches and Oia with plenty of time in each place to soak in the atmosphere. A highlight for us was George's suggested place for lunch at Vassilikos Restaurant at Kamari (a lovely peaceful location with our table right next to the beautiful Black Beach) - he arranged for us to sample a range of specialty Santorini dishes - bliss! George has a very good knowledge of Santorini and our group as a whole would have no hesitation in recommending to others to take a tour with Private Santorini Tours - thank you George for making our visit to Santorini an enjoyable experience.

The company's owner, George, is the most insightful tour guide in Santorini. Originally from Brooklyn, he moved to Greece several years ago and started this company. He speaks perfect English and is an authority on all things Santorini. If you are visiting Santorini as part of a cruise, then you can not do better than hiring George for the day to show you around Santorini.
