You won't regret booking a tour with Chara! My husband and I have traveled extensively and finding a guide like her is rare. She is organized, fun, knowledgeable, and very easy to talk to! She picked up our pace instinctively and was a fountain of information. Great driver and clean, comfortable car, too. Loved our 4 1/2 hours with Chara and highly recommend her!!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words my dear Lena !! A big hug !!

We were 100% satisfied with our tour experience. We had arranged for somewhat of an open itinerary. We explained to Chara what we were interested in seeing, doing and experiencing. Given this information she put together a wonderful tour for us. She is very knowledgeable, personable ,intuitive and has a great sense of humor. After a very short time into the tour we felt like our guide was a good friend rather than someone we had just met. Super fun day for all three of us!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh James!!!! Thank you so much for your great review!! I am sending you all my love from Santorini .

The tour of Santorini that Chara designed for us was amazing! We enjoyed a driving tour of the island, visit to a local winery for tasting, and a walk through the variety of shops on the main streets. Chara was a gracious tour guide with an extensive knowledge of Santorini. We learned much about the culture and history from her. She provided an exceptional tour that exceeded our expectations!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carlin Thank you so much for your kind words!!! I am sending you all my love and a big hug from Santorini !!!

Chara is lovely and very knowledgable! She has lots of information to share about Santorini, we knew it would be beautiful but had no idea it would be so interesting. She showed us not only Oia, the red beach and the black beach, but also the "grape vine baskets". And she helped us beat the crowds! My mom has always dreamed of visiting Santorini and Chara made our visit that much more special. I highly recommend Chara!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rebecca thank you so much for the wonderful review and for giving me the opportunity to show you the hidden side of Santorini!!! All the best !!!

Chara was an absolute delight to have as a tour guide. Very friendly, and very accommodating. She has a very laid back style, and showed us the whole island. We even requested an authentic greek lunch, and she took us to one of her favorite places to eat. Outstanding. She is one of the best guides you will find in Greece. We would definitely hire her again.

Chara is a most generous and accommodating tour guide. She took us to places we would not have seen on our own. Her energy and love of her island was infectious, as was her positive spirit We were so happy that we "found" her Came away with much more knowledge and were very inspired by the entire tour THANK YOU, Chara! Very happy customers Audrey Dulmes and MaryEllen DeHaven

This is the best way to have an overview and see the best of the island. Our guide, Chara, spoke beautiful English and was extremely knowledgeable. We learned so much about the history, the language and the culture. She took us to wonderful local places in her comfortable air conditioned car. I highly recommend taking a personal tour on Santorini.

Great guide. Very knowledgable about the history and archaeology which were my particular interests, but also about all things Santorini. Passionate about the art and culture; past and present. She took the time to walk us up to a great restaurant that we would have missed. If you are serious about learning something while also having an enjoyable time Chara is a perfect choice. Thanks again Chara!

Chara was by far our favourite tour guide during our travels throughout Greece. She is extremely friendly and down to earth. After we met, we felt as if we had known her for years. After touring the beautiful island of Santorini, she took us to a favourite local restaurant for an authentic lunch and we talked about everything! I cannot recommend her highly enough! The driver, Theo, was also top notch. Can't wait to come back and catch up with Chara!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Andrew for the great review!!! I also feel that we are family now!!! I hope we see each other again very soon !!!

Our guide Chara was an absolute sweetheart, a down-to-earth, proud native of Santorini and very knowledgeable about the island. She customized the tour to our needs and provided interesting historical background and descriptions of how people live. The tour of the ancient ruins was amazing! We also received valuable information on how to get around the island on our own. It was a wonderful afternoon that set the stage for a great week on Santorini. We definitely recommend contacting her for a private tour

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Stu for your kind words!!! So glad we met and had such a wonderful time together!!!

The Best of Santorini tour was absolute highlight of my time in Italy. Chara is incredibly fun, knowledgeable, and thoughtful. I feel so lucky to have connected with her to get a chance to see Santorini. From her terrific communication, to showing us the best photo spots, and providing a very thorough tour, I could not ask for a better guide. I recommend Chara highly to anyone looking to book a special tour of Santorini for memories of a lifetime. Skip the cruise excursions and book a tour with Chara!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heidi, thank you so much for your kind words.I would love to see you both again for another unforgettable experience ...and of course more wine tasting...
