Great tour!

Santorini view set up a great tour by Notos Travel. The tour guide had just gotten his Ph.d. in Archeology and was articulate and enthusiastic., A great experience!

Akrotiri Excavation Tour

Our guide was awesome! He was very knowledgeable. The only reason I didn’t give them 5 stars was that they dropped us off an hour and 15 minutes late and we missed the subsequent pick-up for our sunset dinner cruise by 45 minutes. The tour itself was a great experience.

Wonderful experience

I had the most fantastic experience on May 28th. It was an unexpected bonanza of sightseeing a traveler can only dream of. Thanks for the amazing experience Katie! I was signed up for a short 1.5 hour tour of Akrotiri. First off, only Notos Travel was the offering this tour to solo travelers. When I got on the tour bus my tour guide Katie offered me the option of extending to a whole-day sightseeing tour of Santorini at no extra cost. I jumped at the offer and had a wonderful experience. Katie took us through all the beautiful sights of the island providing us interesting insights into the history and culture of the island along the way in addition to teaching us the best way to enjoy the sights. She patiently answered all our questions cheerfully with her encyclopedic knowledge of Santorini. Thanks Katie ! You are the best!
