What a super day we had with Dimitris. He is very personable, easy to be with and very knowledgeable. He was happy to personalise our tour. We went to the various island highlights, with fabulous views; enjoyed a lovely fresh fish lunch at a local Greek restaurant ( non touristy). He organised a tour of Akrotiri for us and also arranged a terrific wine tasting. As a Sommelier he was able to enhance that experience to a new level. We can thoroughly recommend Dimitris. You will not be disappointed.

Dimitris was a most entertaining, savvy, full of energy raconteur of Santorini's history and present. He drove us everywhere, planned a wine tasting at a fine winery, and even gifted us some fresh pastries before dropping us off. A lovely day with a local in a very special and not easy to see without a guide location.

Dimitris was the most enthusiastic guide I have ever encountered. We were a group of 8 adults and the tour that Dimitris designed for us was spot on. The wine tasting was the conducted with professionalism and flair. Best of all, the air-conditioning in the van was super good! Book this guy ... you will not regret it!

"Jim" was a great guide who was flexible and understanding of the itinerary changes caused by the coup attempt in Turkey. We know that the guides and Tours by Locals staff worked extra hard to communicate when wifi was not available and signals not good. We had a fabulous day on Santorini, including the old and the new. The caldera, a swim and trip to the beach and some shopping. Thanks to all.

Dimitri was freaking awesome!!! We had a fantastic day with him seeing the island of Santorini! He is so knowledgeable about the history of the island. We also went to a local off the beaten path restaurant, no tourists and fantastic Greek food. Wine tasting was awesome too and had some shipped.

We had a wonderful time with Dimitris or "Jim." The weather was not agreeable, but Jim was prepared with an extra jacket and umbrella. Despite our disappointed faces when it began to rain, Jim continued to explain the history of the island with enthusiasm and still guided us to the best views - including one which I doubt most tourists even know is there. He wasn't pushy and was careful not to move too fast for us on the slippery pavement. We returned to the cable car right on time. Great guide!

Santorini is as stunning as anywhere in the world and Dimitris is as an enjoyable guide as I have ever run across. He had all the expected tour facts and information but also a sparkle in his spirit that made the day truly special. In the guide books it looks like you don't need a guide and you probably don't...I would say that Santorini without Dimitris would have been a fine day but with Dimitris it was spectacular. I highly recommend him. Dimitris, thanks for a great day.

Dimitri was outstanding.He made it highly informative and enjoyable. Thank you
Dimitris was extremely knowledgable and very friendly. He was a wealth of information and showed us so much of this beautiful island. He had thoughtfully planned out our tour, making the most of the time we had, we traveled the whole island and never felt rush. We were able to see and try local delights and ended out tour at a local winery to try some wonderful wines. Our tour with Dimitris was one of the highlights of our Cruise in the Med. Our short stop in Santorini was well worth it and we will back!
Dimitris was an excellent guide. He showed us around in the best and enjoyable way he can. He made things light and interesting for us and made sure we are not bored.

Dimitris obviously loves his island of Santorini! In 5 hours he drove us to each end, up, down, and everywhere in between. We literally saw everything! He told us stories the whole time and kept us very informed and entertained. We highly recommend Dimitris as your Santorini guide!

A most exceptional day - breath taking scenery, history and a very accommodating guide. Dimitris meet all our needs which wasn't easy for our party of eight. We would highly recommend this tour for those wanting a local experience with a passionate & caring guide.

Dimitris is warm and kind hearted, and his notion of seeing as well as tasting Santorini took us to a wonderful organic farm at the start of the tour which, is a lovely surprise. His knows the island well and is guidence is very thorough, often giving us the opportunities to see the sights in different angles, and his keeness in showing us the best of Santorini resulted in the tour running 45 minutes over time, for which we are highly grateful.

I was traveling with 7 friends on a 10 Day R.Caribbean cruise and this was everyone's first visit to Santorini. Dimitris is both knowledgeable and charming and we felt the tour was focused on us. We toured the entire island seeing places only a local would know including a private winery and a restaurant off the beaten path with great food and a breathtaking view. Everyone agreed this was the best tour we had in those 10 days and we would highly recommend Dimitris.
Nancy ProctorUnited States
Dimitris did a very good job giving us a beautiful tour of Santorini. We had very limited time because we were on a cruise ship. Dimitris was very knowledgable, friendly and courteous. We were able to tour the whole island and visit with local farmers, produce makers and a winery. We have fabulous pictures of our day that are as good as if not better than postcards. We truly enjoyed our tour. Thank you Dimitris!

Dimitris provided us with a wonderful day full of different sites and activities that really enabled us to understand and enjoy all that Santorini has to offer. While our tour was scheduled to be seven hours, it actually went way beyond that time. Dimitris was extremely knowledgeable regarding all of the sites we visited. We especially enjoyed visits to two distinctly different wineries. The tour was well paced with breaks to eat and drink. We highly recommend Dimitris for an outstanding tour of Santorini
