Great tour that I was allowed to customize since we were staying in Oia and didn’t need to tour Oia. Our driver was very accommodating and knowledgeable.

Our tour guide, Apostolus, was fabulous. It was cool, rainy day & he had available, if needed, jackets & umbrellas. He was very flexible with customizing our tour schedule to what we wanted. He hit all the highlights of Santorini. I would highly recommend.
