This was the first time I handed the job over to an agency, and so did not know what to expect. It was amazing!!! We spent a few days in Santorini and Greeking.me was able to introduce things to our itinerary that we would never have thought of. We stayed to a villa that was more than I could have hoped for in Santorini, with what we are convinced was the best view on the entire island!!
We had a wonderful time with Stefanos, who has an easy charm and a wealth of knowledge about Thira. From Oia to the monastery to the lighthouse and home through the Black Beach - and of course, the winery! Our expectations were exceeded. Thank you for a wonderful time!
Kostas, our tour guide, was very informative. We were a group of 6 people in total, and he made sure that we were able to see everything that was on the itinerary even though we had gone over in time. I would highly recommend this tour. In my opinion, it is beneficial to take this tour in the beginning of your stay because you get a general overview of what there is to do and see on the island.
Must do tour in Santorini. Our guide was Clio, who was extremely knowledgeable. We visited some sites that you have to see in Santorini including a Monastesry and finished with a wine tour of an old winery. I have no hesitation recommending this tour.
