Discover Santorini with an experienced tour guide who cares about you. Kostas, who is a licensed tour guide, has been working as a guide for the past 20 years and started offering Santorini private tours 15 years ago. Today he offers high-quality private tours to the main attractions of this one-of-a-kind volcanic island as well as specialized tours to discover the most important archaeological sites, local wineries, and scenic views.



What time does my tour start?

Your tour should start approximately 60-90 minutes after the scheduled arrival of your cruise ship.

What does “a private tour” mean?

Private tours are organized just for your group, which can include up to 8 guests in total. If your group is larger than that, I can always organize the transportation with a van/bus.

Are the tours physically demanding?

No, all of the tours are easy and require minimum walking. You will be brought around the island in an air-conditioned van that can comfortably fit up to 8 guests.

Can I add an extra hour to my tour?

If you decide to extend the tour beyond the agreed duration, please contact me regarding the extra surcharge.


Where is the pick-up/ drop-off point for my tour?

If you are coming on a cruise ship, I will meet you at the top of the cable car station. If you are staying in Santorini, then the tour can start and end at your preferred location

What vehicle do you use for the tour?

I offer my tours in an air-conditioned vehicle. If you need a car seat for your child, I can provide one upon request.

How will I recognize my guide?

You will recognize me immediately, as I will be waiting at the designated location and holding a sign with your name on it.

In what languages do you offer your tours?

I offer my tours in English, German, and Greek. If you speak another language, I can make arrangements to have an interpreter upon request
