A great day with Martina.

Martina showed us a slice of Santorini we wouldn't have seen without her. We had a wonderful day filled with information and laughs, one of the best days of our holiday.

after spending a day with Martina we fell in love with Santorini ! we had a chance to see so much and not from the beaten path and driving around (in a rented car) gave us a feeling of locals. We definitely recommend this tour to other and we are already planing another visit to Santorini next spring !!!!

Although, we did get off to a slow start (mis-communication about date), we all recovered fairly quickly and enjoyed the day with Martina and Anthony (driver) showing us around the island, and sometimes off the beaten path! Taking in Oia, Akrotiri, Emporio, the Monastery, and lunching at a wonderful quaint little restaurant called Melena's Tavern. We missed taking the water... More

We took a cultural and archeology tour in santorini with Martina, she did a wonderful job for taking us to sites where we could not have imagine to go by ourselves, and she had a thorough knowledge of the history of the island ... Really enjoyed it worth going with her, highly recommend this tour.

If you are the kind of person that is not just interested in mainstream sights Martina is the person for you. In Santorini it s easy to see and visit the mainstream places just by looking up at Google or asking around.

Had an excellent time driving around and seeing different parts of Santorini with Martina. She"s a lovely Irish lady who's been on the island for some 20 years, I believe, and she knows the place like a local. Although she says she's not a historian, she certainly knows a lot of background and local colour to the places we visited.... More
