A Recent Review of this tour

Georgia is definitely a wonderful guide in Santorini. We drove to Akrotiri, the excavation site still being dug out after 51 years. She filled us with history and photos from her tablet during our tour. We had several photo stops and the tour was timed perfectly. We had just enough time for shopping on our own. Her English is perfect and she paced the tour to fit our needs. Thanks for a great day!
