My sister and I did a “sisters trip” to Santorini and we really enjoyed this tour. We didn’t have too much time to spend here (only 3 days) so we wanted to mazimize our stay. We took this tour with Catherine and she taught us a lot about the origin of the island and also a little bit bout the history of Santorini. She took us all over the island from Firastefani to the most southern part of the island where rhe lighthouse is in her car. We saw amazing views of the sea everywhere we went to. I liked that she also showed us a little town in the inner island and we could see how some of the locals live, the typical architecture they use and how the agriculture in the island is like. All of this in only 4 hours! She was very knowledgeable, pleasant and punctual. Overall we recommend this tour! :)

Thanking you for writing this kind, descriptive review and for your recommendation. We're happy you and your sister enjoyed yourself and got to see incredible views and even experience a traditional village, where you could witness what life is like for the local natives. Should you ever find yourselves back again, let us take you even deeper to some of the more hidden places on the island. Best regards.

We were traveling with our two daughters, 9 and 14, and visited Santorini on a Cruise ship, which arrived later than programmed and left earlier. Even so, Kathrin was very competent and agile to accommodate all the short notice changes we were forced to do to our scheduled tour.
And Markus was the best host and guide we've ever had on any trip so far, cordial, funny, respectful, punctual, attentive and accommodating.
The best private tour service!

Once we met up with our driver, Arsenios, we had an amazing time. He was very knowledgeable and interesting. He took us where we wanted to go and accommodated our shortened schedule due to the gondola. We went to a small family farm for a beautiful wine tasting with mezze, and everything was delicious. Definitely recommending to others.

Thank you for your kind review and recommendation. We're glad we could show you a amazing time, even if it was limited due to a long wait for the cable car. Also, happy you had a chance to see the non-touristic side of the island and try authentic Greek island cuisine. Let us know when you find yourselves back with more time. We would love the opportunity to show you so much more! Best regards.

We booked a private 4 hr tour for my family of 6 when we stopped at Santorini during our cruise. It was so nice to have someone who met us and took us around and explained all about Greece, the culture, the buildings the area, etc. We ended up getting off the ship later than we expected so we had less time than what was originally booked but Markus made sure to make the most of our time. He was so great with the kids as well. We really enjoyed our time are santorini and will plan to go back later on and if we decide to do another tour we will def go with the Santorini experts as they were both professional and friendly and were great to work with.

So it's taken us 2 months to get around to reviewing Santorini Experts tour. We are 2 couples who travel together,mostly on cruises and have found that taking personal tours is so much cheaper and customized than those offered by cruise ships. YES in some cases it is safer to take a cruise sponsored tour but that depends on the port and how far you need to travel from the ship.
We were lucky enough to actually have Katrine as our tour guide. She met us exactly as promised at the top of the cable car exit first thing in the morning. We were worried that the wait for the cable cars would be hours but actually we had no wait at all. Katrine has a very comfortable car and has lived on the island for quite some time. She knows how to beat the crowds and get us to the popular photo spots before the hordes of group tours arrive. She also took us all the way out to the far side of the island where we visited a family farm and winery and had a opportunity to taste their homemade jams, wine, olive oil etc. And of course we couldn't leave without making some purchases to take home. We also visited the famous black sand beach. We ended the day back in the heart of Santorini where we had time on our own to have lunch and do some shopping before boarding the cable car for our return to the ship.
HINT - do NOT wait until the last minute to ride the cable car down to the dock for the tender back to the ship. The lines can get very long!!
From start to finish Katrine was fabulous. She always responded immediately to my emails and by the time we finally got to meet her we felt like long time friends! Trust us that you are in good hands if you tour with Santorini Experts!

Thank you so much for taking your time to write this kind review and tell others of the "good hands" Santorini Experts keeps you in. Having taking many cruises and tours myself, I could not agree more that a personal private tour with us is the way to go! It is less expensive and you get so much more out of it... a personalized and customized experience. We're so glad you had a wonderful time and got to see many things on our beautiful island! Best wishes. We hope to see you again in the future!
