Janet LaceyUnited Kingdom
An excellent tour with Efi - seeing the beautiful island of Santorini. Efi is very knowledgeable, and showed us some great places, and took some great pics for us. A great day out - thanks! :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Janet...It was my pleasure to show you and your family around my beautiful Santorini...Hope to see you again ,as it takes just a few hours from London to Santorini.All my Best..Efi
Our trip with Efi was wonderful. From the time she picked us up from the airport, to our tour around Santorini, to the time she drove us back to the airport, we had a great and fun time. She was very knowledgeable about the island, including its history, culture and people. I especially loved the tour under the archeological site, wherein she told us stories of ancient Akrotiri.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Althea ...it was a pleasure meeting you ,your mom and your favorite aunts..Hope to see you again.My love to all.Efi
Joan LopezUnited States
Efi was great! She waited patiently for us since we were running late. She had a sign with my name so it was easy to see her. She was very knowledgeable of the history of Santorini, took us to the best sites with picturesque views and took pictures of my family. She is a very sweet and thoughtful lady. She gave me and my daughters a gift at the end of the tour. I highly recommend Efi!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Joan for your kind review..I appreciate that very much and hope to see you all again.A big hug to all.Efi
Efi is so lovely and the tour was excellent! She knew exactly the right spots to take us but also was very flexible when she could see our kids were getting hot and tired. She was so thoughtful and patient with them, they loved her! She is very knowledgeable and her English is perfect. I felt so sorry watching the other cruisers in a mass group tour, doing a forced march through Oia. A perfect way to see Santorini!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Samantha for you kind words..you were so kind and worm and your kind very so great that I really enjoyed our tour a lot.. Thank you for your lovely review, it means a lot to me...hope to see you again.All my Best to you and big hugs to your wonderful kids.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Adam for your feedback..It was great to have met you and I hope to have the chance to see each other soon again! Wish you the best and enjoy every single moment..Efi
Misty JenningsUnited States
We really enjoyed this tour. Efi took us to Oei first and we were able to have some good vantage points for pictures. She took us to some little seen sites. We also went up to the highest point. Efi was able to change it up a little so the boys were able to swim in the black sand beaches. She was very accommodating from start to finish. We changed from 3 people to 6. She was able to keep everyone interested from the 18 year olds to the 75 year old. Thanks Efi for a great day
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Misty for your beautiful review..I had a great time with you too..I am looking forward to seeing you again ,for your third time on Santorini!!! My best wishes to all of you!Efi
Robert E. MitchellHenderson, KY, United States
Efi was terrific and she made our day in Santorini such a special and magical day. She went above and beyond to make sure that we got the most out of our time on Santorini. She made sure that we stayed ahead of the cruise ship tours and the waves of people that go along with those tours. She was extremely knowledgeable and informative, friendly and such a gracious host and guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Robert!!! I am so happy that you enjoyed our tour around the island.It was great to have met you all and I am looking forward to seeing you again on Santorini! My greetings to all of you!Efi
Valerie VerneuilleUnited States
A private tour is the way to go! Our guide, Efi, was friendly and knowledgeable, in addition to being a skilled driver. She educated us as we toured a fascinating archaeological site (Akrotiri), she showed us all the great views (from the monastery way up high, to the red beach, to the classic white and blue seaside hotels/buildings), and she suggested a great lunch place. We were very satisfied with how she showed us around.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Valerie for your kind words ,It was my pleasure to meet you . I had a great time with you too. Hope to see you all again. My best wishes to all.Efi
Mary Alane NuzumUnited States
Today we went on a private custom tour of Santorini with Efi P. It was an amazing day and we covered the entire island, including the beautiful Blue Dome Church of Firá photos, a walk through Firá, the small Church of The Profit Elias and the highest point on Santoríni with panoramic views. Also the ancient ruins of Ackrotiri with an in-depth history of the volcanic activity on Santorini. We learned so much! Plus lunch on black sand beach and tour of beautiful old winery with gorgeous views,Fabulous day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alane for your beautiful review.. Wish you a great time in Delphi,Metera and Crete..Enjoy your trip and have a safe way back home. Efi
Gregory RitzUnited States
The time we spent with Efi was like being with a favorite cousin or close family friend. We felt like we knew her for years, but had not seen her for awhile and spent the day catching-up. When she asked us how we wanted to spend the day, we asked her to take us to places she would take relatives from America. It was a truly delightful, relaxing, insightful day and we felt we saw the best of Santorini. I particularly enjoyed the wine tasting while overlooking the beautiful Caldera. Efi's the best.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gregory !!!!Thank you so much for your kind words and great review!!! I appreciate your support and I am sending you both a big hug!!!All my Best to you and Joe and hope to see you again.
Marcia KressUnited States
We were very fortunate to spend time with Efi - she's an outstanding tour guide as well as a delightful person. Santorini is much more than the beautiful hotels on the caldera; with Efi we saw many of the island's highlights. Efi helped us appreciate the history and understand the advantages/challenges of Santorini life. An added bonus is that we have terrific photos of both of us taken by her! Thank you so much, Efi and thanks for the beautiful Santorini book which is a great memory of our day with you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words Marcia. It was my pleasure to meeting you and Ed and have such beautiful day I trully hope and look forward to seeing soon again.Till then wish you a wonderful time together. Efi

GAry FrickUnited States
Outstanding tour by a knowledgeable guide. We had 4 persons in Efi's car, no problem. She took us see the main tourist attractions, then went out of her way to show us some of the things about the island that are special to her. Those included the black sand beach, the red sand beach and the monastery at the highest point of the island. Always answered our stupid questions with a smile and a dignified response. I would recommend her highly for Santorini visitors.
Barbara LeedomUnited States
Efi was an excellent guide. She is knowledgeable about Santorini locales and history. We visited places that are not accessible by tour bus. Prior to the tour, we had discussed our preferences and were able to spend additional time in Oia and skip the wine tasting most of the tours stop for. We even stopped at a bakery for treats, per our request. Efi met us at the end of the cable cars and dropped us off with time to spend in Firs. This was a thoroughly enjoyable tour with a fabulous guide!
Ronald KratzerUnited States
Efi was eager & proficient in showing me her beautiful island, unhurried and with my interests always first.
Hazel GreenfieldUnited States
Efi was fantastic. She picked us up at the airport early in the morning and we began our tour early. We were able to get to Oia before the flood of tourists came from the cruise ships. She made suggestions and gave us lots of options for the tour and for things to do when we'd be on our own. We had a great time. She is very personable. She really knows her stuff and she is also a fantastic photographer!
Sally KlemmUnited States
We had a wonderful time with Efi exploring several of the lesser known villages of Santorini and the island at large. She was super friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating for an off the beaten path experience we wanted. She even made sure we were at the most romantic spot for drinks and to watch the beautiful sunset in the village of Pyrgos. My husband and I felt we made a friend in Santorini with Efi and would easily recommend her to our family and friends.
Bob HaydenUnited States
Efi is a very accommodating guide who was eager to please. A to cruise travelers is to be sure to allow plenty of time to catch the cable car. Our departure was at 5:30 and when we got to the cable car at 3:30 the wait was over 2 hours. Consequently we had to make the long hot walk down the over 500 steep steps at the hottest time of day.
Shannon NardoneUnited States
Beautiful! We customized our tour. We went to several blue dome churches and one was open we got to go in. We then went to see the black beach for a quick picture, next to Oia which wasn't crowded when we arrived but then got so crowded it wasn't enjoyable. Glad the guide took us as early as she did or it would have been miserable. We went for pictures at the winery but didn't stay for a tasting which allowed us to go for pictures at the red sand beach then back to the cruise town Fira. We loved it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Shannon.. It was my pleasure meeting you and have such a great time with you... You are a wonderful family and hope to have the chance to see you again soon!
Melissa CarrollNew Zealand
Efi, you were delightful!! This fabulous lady is full of energy, enthusiasm and knowledge and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. My husband was keen on purchasing some Greek wine - no trouble. Efi took us where we needed to go and joined us at a fabulous winery where we enjoyed good wine, food and company. Thank you Efi.

Carmen FigueroaMarietta, GA, United States
Efi was a fun guide & a great driver! We absolutely fell in love with Santorini, Fira, Oia and Efi made sure that we had a great day exploring. She was very knowledgeable and was our guide at the museam/archaeological site in Akrotiri. That was amazing to see. Fredo says "what happens in Akrotiri, stays in Akrotiri" hahaha! private joke. Thank you Efi for helping us spend a wonderful day in the most beautiful place in the world! :o)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Carmen...thank you so much for your feedback and you kind words....camora, so tell Freddo «Ι’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse»,Hahaha!!!What a Day!!It was great to have met you and I hope to have the chance to see each other soon again! Wish you the best and enjoy every single moment.

James P.United States
Efi gave us a grand tour of beautiful Santorini, hitting the highlights so we could focus on what we wanted to delve deeper into the remainder of our stay. The fact that she is an accomplished photographer herself and sent us home with great shots of us in many places was an added bonus. I would highly recommend her for anyone visiting this island.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words Bill . It was my pleasure to meeting you and have such beautiful day I trully hope and look forward to seeing soon again.
Cynthia OrrUnited States
Amazing tour guide and her knowledge is only surpassed by her enthusiasm. Was great because she tailored the tour to meet our needs and desires. I would recommend her to everybody.

Greg FathSewell, NJ/08080, United States
Efi is phenomenal! Her tour of Santorini was awesome! She took the time to explain the island while pointing out many significant historical aspects. She is upbeat and friendly. She is patient and very flexible as well. She truly loves her home and it shows throughout the tour. My daughter and I went with her and felt very relaxed from the moment she arrived at our hotel. She is an amazing individual and we both guarantee that you will be impressed with her! Thank you Efi!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Greg! I am so happy that you enjoyed our tour around the island.It was a plesure to have met you and I am looking forward to seeing you and the rest of the family,again on Santorini!Being with you felt like I was out with friends!

Drew M.United States
There are so many positive points to this tour that it is difficult to know where to start. I would give it 6 stars if possible, mostly due to Efi. Efi is truly one of the best tour guides we ever had. She is wonderful! We had such a great day touring the best parts of Santorini with such a knowledgeable and generous guide. My wife has special needs and Efi could not have been more accommodating. We will return to Satorini - one of the prettiest places on earth - and we will sign up with Efi again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your wonderful review Drew! I am so happy that your day on the island was a memorable one and it is a greater pleasure to have contributed on that!You were wonderful, enjoying every single moment even though we started with a bit of rain!!Hopefully we will meet again and till then enjoy every day. All my Love to Robin and Hose as well. Maria was looking for you after she was awake.
Barbara TiedemannUnited States
Efi was terrific. Excellent English, knowledge, sense of humor. Drove us to Oia and surrounding areas. Last stop was a wine tasting. What fun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you soooo much.You were great,a beautiful day.Hope to see you again.All my best to all!
Our guide Efi was very friendly & extremely knowledgeable about the ruins in Santorini ( Akrotiri). She was more than willing to adapt the tour to fit our requests. We learned a lot of ancient history that enhanced our visit to the island. Many thanks. We have now booked another tour in Athens.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Linda , thank you again.It was a beautiful day for me too.All my best to all of you.
Michael SteckmanUnited States
A most beautiful walk with constant stunning views of the caldera. A private guide enables detailed accounts of life and history of the island. This hike would be comfortable for individuals who routinely hike 5 mile unpaved trails. We had a nice mild day in October so it was not that hot and very enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael,I am really very happy that you enjoyed our Hiking on Santorini.It was my pleasure meeting you and wish you the best.
Efi was a pleasure to be with, well informed, funny, and a top quality guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Larry for your kind words,I am really very happy that you enjoyed our tour on Santorini.It was my pleasure to meeting you all and wish all of you the best!Hope to see you again!
David Dwight BenedictoUnited States
We enjoyed very much our Santorini excursion with Efi. She is very knowledgeable, full of information about Santorini, entertaining, and she catered the tour to our hearts' content. Moreover, she took us to nice spots for photos which endeared her to my wife and sister-in-law. She's a very good driver and photographer as well. She even brought us to the pharmacy to get some medicine because I was not feeling well when I got to Santorini. She treated us like dear friends she has not seen for a long time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much David! I am so happy that you enjoyed our tour around the island.It was great to have met you all and I am looking forward to seeing you again on Santorini! My greetings to all of you!
Diana SabloffUnited States
EFI WAS FANTASTIC. Warm, personable, went out of her way to help us, especially when our travel agent made a mistake and had us tendered at the wrong port and Efi drove half-way across the island to get us. We still had time to do all the things we wanted to and learned a ton. It was our favorite day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your wonderful review Diana! Thank you for all the kind words you. I am very happy that I contributed to your successful trip.I wish you and your family the best.
