Gorgious tour - informative and lots of fun
Amani guides you around the the little villages of Santorin and you soon will find yourself imagining how farmers in "the old days" were trying to make a living at this beautiful but very dry island. How did they cultivate wine here and what makes it so special? And how did they manage to build those houses alongside the hills? A pleasant way to find out is to book this tour and meet a guide who is really burning for the history of everyday life in the little villages of Santorin. We had a great day!

Super tour, super guide!
Oct 2019
We had Amani as our guide---super ! I have trouble with my knees and she customized our tour for me. We got to see a lot. Took pictures of us (we will have some pics of the two of us together this vacation thanks to her) at beautiful sites. We went to a local winery with a paring which was a great experience for us.She is knowledgeable, great personality and just overall a super guide. You will be super pleased when you book with tour company. Ask for Amani. You will be glad you did. (Just an FYI the cable car going back to the ship took over an hour and we got there around 1:45. )

Totally customized tour for us
Aug 2019 • Friends
Great day in Santorini! We had already been to Oia previously and my husband was having issues with his knees so we had an abbreviated tour there and saw much more of Santorini. It showed that his knowledge of culture and history was a passion. We also wanted a wine tasting and visit to a brewery and he made that happen. Great afternoon with Akiss (I probably butchered his name). Thanks for a wonderful day!

Dear Ginny, thank you very much for sharing your experience. It was a real pleasure for Akiss to escort an Artist, a Prince (from Persia) and a Baron (from Colombia). Hope to see you again on the Island or in Nashville. We feel also lucky for the beautiful people that we meet during our private tours. Take care.

Great tour to see Santorini during short cruise stop
Jun 2019 • Couples
I booked this tour for four of us as we had a short cruise stop in Santorini. I read that getting up to Fira from the tenders could be a challenge if there were a lot of ships in so I wanted an early tour. Amani set us up for 8:30 but she was just arriving a little after 8:00 when we got up to the top so it was perfect timing. She asked us if there was anything we particularly wanted to see and we told her to lead on and show us the island. Amani has a great personality and provides you with lots of information about life on Santorini. She did take us to "the main drag" before all of the groups arrived and it was already getting crowded. The she whisked us off to a typical village which was wonderful and she did a great job explaining how life is in this narrow little village where one lives on top of each other. Finally she asked if we would like to taste some Santorini wine and took us to a vineyard where we enjoyed snacks and wine. It was a great day and we avoided the crowds until it was time to descend from Fira. Be warned that the wait can be over 1.5 hours to get the cable car down. We only had a 40 minute wait but we arrived early afternoon. Many got out of line to walk down the stairs but one woman from our ship fell (can be slick with donkey poo) and broke her ankle. Use caution either way -- timewise or walking. Contact the tour company is you want a very personal tour.
