A varied day that was a real success & good value. Once the pick ups are done the day flows smoothly with a good balance of guided & self exploring. The archeological site was a huge surprise (€12 extra) & well worth the time. The walk to red beach was a little steep on poor roads, worth knowing if you have a child’s buggy, & it’s to see the beach, not go on it. Our guide Maria was lovely, balancing varied client needs & expectations very well with good humour & calmness. The suggested lunch stop El Greco Fira was the only regret, the food pretty bland & expensive for a side street without a view. Worth walking on into the town, up the alleyways to glorious views, again not cheap but worth it. Oia we kept walking too, persuading a restaurant with amazing sunset views our drinks bill would equal eating to let us in for beverages only. The return bus trip was swift as all yours got combined based on drop off points so we didn’t have to go around the houses, which was ideal.

Our guide was thoroughly knowledgeable About the island being born there she explained a lot of things that most guilds would not . Took us to many places explaining each one in the history of them went from city to city spectacular views had a wonderful time with highly recommend it is Tours it’s definitely worth the money you spend to have it done private I’ve been on the bus tours have been on this tour just not the same. Time spent with one on one conversation is worth it.

We could not make the date planned due to an accident and this company was so kind to let us go the next day. Lily out tour guide was excellent- her knowledge of the history of Thea was very interesting! She handled a couple of unpleasant guests with respect, had the situation under control. Thank you Lily and Niko our driver!!

Absolutely wonderful experience! Everyone was so nice and the boat was beautiful, the food was delicious and the drinks were plentiful. The views were perfect and the swimming was amazing. It was great, I can’t possibly use anymore adjectives!

It was a great tour, very informative and well organised Thank you :)
