Spent a great day on Santorini with Kostas. He realy knows the island, its history, its traditons and its geology. He is a great host and a great exemple of the famous Greek hospitality. He showed me many of the highlights of the island like Oia, Black Sand Beach, the lighthouse and much more. As I was on the island in the off season, he had to adapt the tour a little bit, and he did a great job here as well. Kostas is a truely gifted guide, and I can but warmly recommend him!

Our visit to Santorini had 2 special highlights. One was Santorini itself, Oia and all the areas we visited with Kostas, which ticked off Santorini from our bucket list and was the most enjoyable and pictorestic part of our tour. The second highlight was Kostas. We had an amazing and fun day with Kostas, seeing many great spots in and around Santorini, including tasting some great wine and snacks at Maria's place, which we highly recommend as well. Do not hesitate to choose Kostas as your guide !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great day for me too Paula :) Its really nice to hear you enjoyed my tour and thanks for the great review!!! Take care and we might meet again in Santorini All the best

Kostas was terrific. He was very knowledgeable of Santorini, but even more importantly, he was attentive and accommodating to our group. It was a private tour that had 8 people and Kostas continually checked that the pacing was good and the sites were on target. We started in Oia and beat the cruise ships so we had ample time to see this spectacular town. He tailored remaining locations according to our priorities. Kostas was so flexible and personable. He gets my my highest recommendation. Thanks Kostas!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael too for great day. As a local I know ways to avoid the crowds and find places which are interesting for our visitors. Glad you enjoyed the day with me and hope to meet again. Nice to meet you all! Always take care
This was our first ToursByLocals tour and Kostas was a wonderful guide. He was genuine, friendly and made us feel at home within 5 minutes of meeting him! He took us all over the island showing us the best spots for pictures and the most breathtaking views! He was very knowledgeable and shared little fun facts with us throughout the day. He also took us to an excellent spot for gyros which were delicious. We would definitely recommend Kostas to anyone visiting Santorini. Efcharistó Kostas!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very glad you enjoyed the day with me on my island Danielle It was nice to meet you all and visit my places in that windy but beautiful day Take care and thanks for the great rating and review

Kostas was wonderful in every way. His enthusiasm for Santorini and showing us the best time was evident from the moment he picked us up to the moment he dropped us off. His recommendations for the day we were on our own were superb. He showed us how to use the buses and even made reservations for us to have dinner where we would have the best view of the sunset. I recommend him to anyone who wants to see Santorini through a locals view.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mary Jane and Tom for the enjoyable tour too Hope you enjoyed Athens as well and got the best memories from our beautiful country

The tour of Santorini was well done. Kostas did a nice job talking us around and has a good knowledge of Santorini. He showed us enough in six hours that we want to come back again and really spend more time in the late summer when the crowds are not so much. When we landed Kostas did not tell us to take the cable car to the top of the port. He did not have his phone on so we wasted about 30 minutes tying to get in contact with him. But for that problem I would have given him five stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dale for the review and the rating You are right about my phone as i had some issues with the sim card(i explained you once we met at the top) If you double check to my emails you will see that i was very detailed about the meeting point and the time(at the top of the cable car at 09:00) I was there at the scetzuled time Glad though this insident didnt effect the tour and we had a great time with you and your familly Thanks again and have a nice summer

Great tour of Santorini to see the full island in a day. Kostas is friendly and knowledgeable. He was very accommodating to issues we had with our ferry arriving late and he still gave us our full tour. His vehicle is clean and comfortable and he knows the fastest routes around the island, by car and foot! Thanks Kostas!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Shanon It was a great day for me too and i am glad that we finally made it Enjoy the rest of your stay to our beautiful country
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Edith for the review and the nice day It was my pleasure to meet you and your husband and take you around to my beautiful island
