Outstanding tour

I made a group reservation for 19 people on our ship when we stopped there Nov 8. I wanted an all-day tour, 7 hours, ending at sunset. The cost per person for the tour depended on the number of people in our group. The bus held 20 people, and the cost per person was right at $50. Ship's tours for only 4 hours were costing twice as much. My questions about such things as hours of operation for the Gondolas and other logistical questions during the months leading up to the cruise were answered promptly. If you are visiting Santorini from a cruise ship, you will be tendered in at Skala port, then you must ascend to Fira above. Once you are at the top, it was a 5 minute walk to the pickup point, along the edge of the caldera. Because we had time to kill, we stopped at a little outdoor restaurant for coffee, with a stunning view below. We were met at the pickup point by the owner of Marinakis Tours, Nikolas Marinakis, who would be our tour guide for the next 7 hours. After making some last-minute adjustments to our itinerary (at my request), we were on our way. "Nick the Greek" entertained us with facts, trivia about Santorini, as he showed us the beautiful sights. We visited the highest point on the island, Red Beach, then Black Beach, with plenty of commentary regarding geological makeup of the cliffs, sand, etc. We were unable to visit the Akrotiri site, as it was closed that day. There were other normal tour stops that were closed for the season, so we bypassed them for other points of interest. We visited Firastefani, Imerovigli, and a quick lunch at a street gyro stand. We stopped at Santos wines, a winery with a beautiful view of the island. I had requested that we finish the tour in Oia, for sunset, so we headed that way late afternoon. Along the way, Nick had the driver stop at a small store, and emerged 10 minutes later carrying a sack with 2 bottles of wine, for our consumption. We viewed sunset from Oia Castle, arguably the best spot on the island for that activity, sipping wonderful Greek wine. Aftewrwards we were returned to the pickup point, and Nick made sure we all knew how to get back to the Gondola. I can't recommend this tour highly enough, if I ever return, Nick is my "goto guy"!

Great must do Tour!

Our Guide was Iro and the Driver Demetri. They were outstanding telling us all about the island history, climate and demographics. They took us to several stops including Windmills, village , Basillica and Agrari beach. They moved at our pace and we never felt rushed during the day. While at the beach they provided a snack and a sample of their local liquor Ouzo which was similar to tequila. They also suggested a Wine tasting at Santo Wines with a beautiful view before we headed back to our ship. I would highly recommend this company for a tour.

Excellent Tour and Superb tour guide

Superb tour, highly recommend and much better than the cruise ships excursion offering. Our tour guide and driver were excellent! Great organisation and we were shown some of the finest parts of Santorini. Also great help from Santorini view rearranging the tour time as our cruise ship was delayed getting in. Thank you

Pour tour guide

We had a poor experience with this tour. The group could hardly understand what the guide was saying on the microphone on the bus. We told her, but she didn't seem to care.
