2 stars out of 5 We did not enjoy being with Markos in Santorini. He was loud, arrogant and was not as informative as we would have enjoyed. He took offense if we asked a question or made a comment about what we chose to do. I would not recommend Markos K
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wayne thank you for taking the time to leave this interesting and surprising review. Also thank you for leaving me a 100 euros tip at the end of the tour and for giving me 6 hugs, one by one, each of your group members. It is always a rewarding feeling and I guess an honest sign of appreciation and satisfaction. Please go ahead and give a reasonable and detailed explanation for giving the above rating, so that potential customers can draw their own conclusion. Thank you.

Marcos did a wonderful job! He met us promptly and gave a great tour. My husband has mobility issues and Marcos was always checking on him to make sure all was well. He is friendly and knowledgeable. His love of Santorini and people is evident. He gave us a taste of all parts of the island and an insight into Santorini culture. I recommend his tour highly! We feel like we now have family in Santorini! P
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Diane, It was my pleasure and an honor to meet you and your husband. I am very happy all of you had such a great time on the island and that I was a part of it. My best wishes!

Wow! What an amazing guide! Markos is a delightful man to spend time with. He is extremely knowledgable and informative.. We found him to be very caring as well. His sense of humor is a joy and we could have easily spent more time with him if we were able to . Markos made our tour of his "secret" spots of Santorini an unforgettable one!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leslie, it has really been a great pleasure traveling with you and showing off my beautiful island. Thank you very much for taking the time to write these nice words. Wishing you all the best. Markos

Markos was absolutely amazing! Such an uplifting and positive attitude, with just the right balance of local knowledge while also the ability to read what we were interested in, and adjust his tour to fit our needs. Pointed out all the places that a local should know about, mixed in history of the island, and topped it off with guiding us to an incredible dinner spot where he made the reservations for us. Our tour went about an hour over its allotted time, but everything is OK with Markos. Love him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jon, thank you very much for your nice words, it was such a pleasure to meeting you and being part of your vacation. Please let me know if there is any way possible we can help in the future, whether you are planning your next visit to the island or have friends or family that need help in their Santorini planning, let me know. I would be happy to be of service. All the best - Markos
On our recent cruise in Europe with 6 families, we booked a private customised tour with Markos of Tours by Locals to show us the sights of Santorini. We were not disappointed. Markos was accomodating and planned our tour to ensure there was something for everyone to enjoy. Our group of 21 loved it! Markos' enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for Santorini was infectious. We cannot wait to return and wouldn't hesitate recommending Markos and tours by locals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sandra, we really had a splendid day! Thank you so much for letting me be part of your groups vacation, it was a pleasure showing off my beautiful island. Please let me know if you or your friends should need anything to organize your future travels. All the best for you and your family, Markos
