Unforgettable experience in Santorini
Oct 2021 • Couples
My wife and I did the private sightseeing tour with Theodore our guide. We had such amazing tour of Santorini with all it's beauty and rich history. We were so lucky to have Theodore share the history and show us all the beautiful picturesque views around the island. We would highly recommend you request Theodore as your guide in Santorini. You will be happy you did. These are lifetime memories he made possible and we'll never forget our time here.

Best private tour to explore Santorini
Santorini is my dream vacation and thank you for the private tour guide by Thedore. The tour only have 2 of us and before we started the trip he communicates with us about the places we want to visits and make sure we are okay with it. I don't mind paying for the private tour so we can explore the island at our own pace and have time to take lots of pictures. Thedore help us took lots of pictures, I mean not just 1 or 2 , more like 10-20 🤣 each amazing spot he will offered to take picture for us. I loved it. You can tell he love the island and went to make sure we enjoy the island as well. Each stop he will explained all the history and details. And the lunch spot he took us at the black sand beach was amazing (Forty One) good recommendations and we stopped by the winery and visited the winery museum. We stop by the highest point of the village and so much more... We ended our day at the secret sunset spot which is so amazing and no crowd at all. Thank you for all the details and accomendation. I'm a frequent traveler and can appreciate the top services when I paid extra for the private tour. I'm truly happy about this tour and can not ask for more. Thank you again Thedore

Extremely accommodating, knowledgeable and personable. Very good size comfortable riding bus. Introduced us to food and drinks native to the area! Felt extremely safe and comfortable the entire day! Plan on returning and will definitely use Theodore again! Theodore was the most amazing guide we have had on our entire trip and we have been here for two weeks!

Tomas was awesome! Drove us to all the scenic spots for photos, let us hang at the Black Beach for an hour, then took us to the amazing Santos winery. He was punctual, informative and so sweet! The tour company was very easy to work with too!

On top of Santorini being a relaxing and beautiful place to be ,at the private tour we took with Theodore was excellent, he took the time to show and tell us stories about the history of certain places and also showed us some of the best places to eat gyros and wine ( which I bought a few ) and the highlight of the trip was the track up the mountain to see the castle and take pictures, which if you need a person who will get all angles it’s Theodore. Had a great time and can’t wait to come back !!!

Book this tour!
Had a fantastic tour of Santorini courtesy of Theodore, he was so knowledgeable and had answers to any and all questions we had about the island. Recommended some amazing restaurants and bars for us to try and gave a really friendly service. Wish we’d have done this earlier in the holiday! Thank you!!

Amazing experience
Sep 2021 • Friends
Wow, where do I even begin. Our tour guide Theodore went above and beyond from start to beginning. He was very punctual and greeted my group with joy. He carter our tour to our needs, and we were able to eat breakfast and lunch at his highly recommend establishments (which was so worth it). He was kind enough to take group pictures, which was such an amazing plus. Theodore was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to make the entire experience enjoyable. When I return to Santorini I will be using Kallisti Tours and also recommending this company.

A perfect tour led to a perfect day
I cannot say enough good things about our Kallisti private tour of Santorini with Theodore.

We were off of the Celebrity Ship Apex on 9/10/21. We wanted to put together a nice customized day for the 8 of us, rather than being dragged around on a cruise ship excursion with 40 other people in a bus. In the past we’ve always had great experiences thru Viator and our day on a Kallisti Private Tour was no exception.

Theodore picked us up at the top of the Gondola and whisked us off in his Mercedes van. In Fira he took us to the view of the famous blue dome church, where we were literally the only ones there.

After showing us a few smaller towns we were driven along a cliff side road (with spectacular ocean views) to Oia. We got coffee from a small shop before setting out in this fabulous town.

We never felt rushed and Theodore patiently waited as some of my friends were drawn to each shop like a moth to a flame.

After a few hours we were taken to a restaurant on the Black Beach where we had an outstanding lunch and some great local wines. After lunch he had arranged for several private cabanas for us on the beach, so we could enjoy a dip in the ocean.

It was heaven.

The day ended with a drive to the highest point on Santorini and returning us to Fira, for shopping and coffee before our return to the ship.

I can’t imagine a better way to spend the limited time we had in Port than the 7 hours we spent with Theodore on this private tour.

I would recommend it without hesitation.
