What people are saying about Pyrgos Kallistis

Wow! What an AMAZING tour. Out of all of the things we did in Santorini, I HAVE to say that this tour is a must. You get SO much information about the island. You see so much of the island. Lilly is the absolute best. She is funny, personable, and incredibly knowledgeable. She will take pictures for you wherever you would like and has specific spots that she will make sure you get pictures at because they are stunning. It really gives you the perfect idea of the island because you get to see so much in one day. We decided to do this tour on the first day and it was a great idea. We got to see places that we knew we would like to come back to when we rented ATVs to explore the island by ourselves. And which places we were pretty sure we saw all there is to offer there. Lilly is the most amazing tour guide. Make sure you book this tour, it will absolutely not disappoint!

A fantastic way to explore many parts of Santorini in one day. The tour combines various activities such as visiting an archeological site, time to relax at the beach, walking through towns, visiting a winery, free time in Oia and a great tour guide. Transportation is excellent and professional from start to finish. A well organised day!

The duo staff of Lily and the driver made this tour exceptional. My husband and I had never been to Santorini Island and this was a great overview. Lily speaks from her heart and takes great care of the group. It was an wonderful blend of local history, experiences of wine tasting and beach and ending the day with an Oia sunset.

The trip was great, we got to see all the main spots and had time to wander around, and even to drink wine at one of the island's vineyards. Our guide (sadly her name has gone from my head) was excellent and she told us a lot about the history of the island, as well as some funny anecdotes. It was well worth the money.

The guide Lili was great, very funny, entertaining and gave us a lot of information about the island. I would repeat with Lili again
