“Our tour was absolutely amazing. John was our driver - guide. We had only one day in Santorini and booked this private tour at the last minute. We are able to see the entire island and its best viewpoints in 6-hours in an air-conditioned van. We started in Oia, then went to Imerovigli, Firostefani, Fira, Prophet Ilias, Megalochori, the ruins of the ancient city, the red and black beaches. John was willing to take us wherever we wanted to go and do whatever we wanted to do. Highly recommend this private tour and we found it the best way to see the entire island in 6 hours.”
