A Recent Review of this tour

Eugenia P was a WONDERFUL tour guide for our visit to Santorini. She was very flexible with our itinerary and her knowledge of the island is deep. We were very impressed with her and are just sorry we didn't have more time to spend with her. I would recommend her highly. We got so much more out of our brief time there with the history and culture she shared with us along with taking us to some places with fantastic views we never would have seen otherwise. A+
