We did the full day bus tour that included Perisa, the winery, sightseeing, the excavation sight and Akrotiri for pictures ending the tour with the sunset in Oia. The tour was excellent with enough time in each area, very professionally handled, our guide was very knowledgeable and also funny, making an overall memorable experience. We highly recommend it. Thank you!, A great experience!, Excellent!, Well organized!

Tour was ok

The tour provided a nice overview of the island. The wine tasting was weak. The guide left the group after the wine tasting. The bus left 15 minutes earlier than planned for our return to the hotel at the end of the tour. Luckily we waved the bus down and driver stopped. He insisted we were late and had the wrong departure time. Others on the tour confirmed we had the correct time and that they almost missed the bus too. Earlier in the day, the guide took a picture of a pretty young girl, without her knowledge, as she was walking towards the bus. We found that totally inappropriate.

Dear Georgia, thank you for your review! We are very sorry we didn’t provide the best service we could. We will check all the issues you mentioned in order to correct them in the future. As for the photo, we will ask the guide to confirm it that took the picture and we will ask to delete it. Since we set a high standard for ourselves, we will investigate your feedback further to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
