What people are saying about Perissa

This was an absolute amazing experience for me and my significant other. Our tour guide was Panagiota and she was by far the absolute BEST tour guide we’ve ever had with all the countries we’ve been to. Her attentiveness to our overall comfort was impeccable. She even offered to take multiple pictures of us throughout the tour as she educated us on the history of Santorini wines and vineyards. I will definitely recommend this company to anyone and specifically Panagiota! She was amazing! Great tour.

This tour is so incredibly amazing. If you only had one day to see Santorini, this would be the best choice. If you have much longer (like us) it will be even better, because it will set the tone for the comfort and beauty in the soul of Santorini. Lovers of science, architecture, archeology, philosophy, nature, culture, beautiful views, and adorable jokes: Purchase Now. Thank you especially to Katie for being so kind, caring, and brilliant! You are loved.
