Fantastic tour! My husband and I recently spend the day in Santorini during a cruise stop. We stumbled upon Theodore shortly after we arrived on the island. We arranged for a four hour tour and we were SO happy we did. Theodore was fantastic. He was very patient, answered all our questions, took us to to some great spots and also captured some fabulous photos of the two of us. We are planning to return to Santorini to spend a five or six days within the next year or two, and when we do, we will definitely contact Theodore again. Thanks so much for a great tour Theodore!

Amazing Time in Santorini My partner and I only had a short time in Santorini, but our tour guide Theodore was amazing and showed us so many sights in such a short time. We booked a half-day tour, and Theodore came with great recommendations and knew all the greatest views and sights. He took lots of pictures for us, and at the end of the tour, he dropped us off at a great local restaurant that he recommended for us. We couldn't be happier with our tour!

Our family of five decided to take a private tour of Santorini instead of a Shore Excursion with our Cruise Ship. What an amazing day. It was more cost effective than the ship tour and way better. We traveled in comfort and did not have to wait for a whole bus load of people. Our time was precious and we wanted to see everything in a time efficient way.
