What people are saying about Pyrgos Kallistis

Very hot day but Maria our guide was great, she made us take breaks quite regularly so as not to suffer too much, she put us in a good mood and gave us very good directions for times and meeting points. She was perfect. We were able to discover many main places of the island of santorini even with short moments it was great. I highly recommend, just remember to take something to hydrate yourself, that's the most important thing!

Maria was a terrific tour guide. She was professional, sweet and funny. We received a nice introduction to the different areas of the island. I would have liked to be given more information about the Akrotiri archaeological site, and perhaps more time. We actually missed the Red Beach walk because we were trying to read all of the postings in the Akrotiri exhibit. But overall, a well-organized tour and a beautiful experience.

Wonderful!!! Just to be recommended, I don't really like such tours at all. But it was great, seen everything there was to see

Very well organised tour, Maria our guide shared lots of stories as we drove around the island, highly recommend

It was a great tour that allowed us to see much of the island. Very fun day.
