This was such an amazing experience, absolutely loved the mythological links to the music being played, and the beautiful music played by Yanis was just out of this world. I’m privelaged to have experienced this. I stayed on to make my own little pipe which was signed by Yanis and is the best souvenir I’ve ever taken away from a holiday :-)

Beautiful Tour that allowed us to understand many things about Santorini and to see many places even in a single day. The guide Gregory was great and we loved the Music Museum and the interactive lesson: unique experience!

Gregory ist a great tour guide and an even better driver ;) Within a mixed group he kept everybody happy and told us many interesting details about past and present Thira
