SantoTour Transfers & Private Guided Travel

The SantoTour company was created by tour guides with experience that decided to offer their services directly to the guests of Santorini. After working for several years all over Greece, in 2014 we decided to settle down on beautiful Santorini. We gained valuable experience in the field of tourism over the past years, working mainly on excursions in Santorini during summer and during winter we continued offering our services. After that, we decided to focus on the tailor made tours and excursions and the excellent service.

Amazing people especially the owner Kostas and our tour guide Nikolas. We had an AWESOME time on our first day, we got to see the sights in Oia, the Black Beach, and the "secret" spot that only Nikolas knows!. I would recommend this company to my friends who plans to visit Santorini. If given the opportunity to visit Santorini again, I would call them in a heartbeat! They treated us like friends, not as customers! The hospitality extended all the way to Greek Night. We couldn't ask for more! Santotour ROCKS!

I was picked up at the bus station by Aegean Divers for my two tank dive. We headed back to the dive shop to load up the gear and meet the team. I was the only diver scheduled for the day, and I was told that they would not use boats due to the cost plus it was the start of the season, so we did two shore dives. There were other dive operators there, and it was the same situation, shore dives for a couple of tourist divers. It was nice to have the Dive Master to myself, and he was really good, and had safety in mind throughout the dive. The water was cold, it was only 18 C, however the air temperature was hot at around 26 C, so suiting up in a 5mm wet suit and walking along the beach with a tank on was a bit of a concern for overheating. I was disappointed with both dives, as they were non-interesting, as there wasn’t much coral or fish to see. The surface interval was roughly a 45 minute break with bottled water and a welfare Sandwich. At the end we headed back to the dive center, where they had cold showers to rinse off with. Upon leaving, I was given a gift of an Aegean Divers t-shirt, which I thought was a nice touch.

So definitely a recommendation.
It's very close to the airport and easy to find.
There are two options for tasting and also some food options.
The wine is very well explained like in other wineries too. Even the pairing with the food.
When the lady recognised that i am not just a drinking tourist but really interested in wine she turned out very empathic and really knowledgeable. After, she even recommended other smaller wineries on the island which i think is very nice.
Thanks for the nice wine chat!

If you have to choose one thing to do while in Santorini, we would highly recommend Panos as your skipper aboard the Alex. He and Dimitri were hospitable, informative, and gracious. We Santorini from vantage points we never would have experienced otherwise and got a terrific education/history/geology lesson of this remarkably beautifully place. To boot, he prepared and served us tasty, local cuisine as we prepared to watch the sunset. We had a memorable week in Santorini but this was surely our highlight.

100% amazing experience, we did the day time cruise. We booked the semi private but it ended up being private because no one else booked! The crew was above and and beyond! The lunch was some of the best food we had on the island. Margarita is so sweet and she answered all our questions. Plenty of time to swim or relax. We would 100% do this again. Thank you !!!

An absolutely beautiful Monastery at the top of the hill. The hill is huge but it is absolutely worth the quad bike ride up. It can be cold when windy though. A gorgeous gift shop with some absolute gems in it. The Monastery itself is stunning, Well worth a visit

Erotokritos

Reviewed By Aron C

We stayed in Karterados for 3 days and we went here thrice to have our brunch. I think this is one of the best bakeries on Santorini. They serve very good coffee and we loved the fresh orange juice. Staff very helpful and patient as we could not make a choice from the massive assortment. Please note that there are also seats next to the building.
Open 24 hrs.

Venetsanos Winery is located right above the port of Athinios, overlooking the Caldera. Designed by George Venetsanos, it was opened as the first industrial winery on the island in 1949. This unique winery (now a museum) is literally carved into and hanging onto the cliffs! The winery produces several white and red wines, includes the sweet Vinsanto dessert wine. We enjoyed tasting them all! When paired with food and sipped on the Terrace with the Caldera and all of Santorini at your feet – well, friends, it doesn’t get any better than this! Our Santorini Unique Experience Tour included a stop here. Make sure you allow enough time, because you won’t want to leave. I’d still be there with a wine glass in my hand if they hadn’t dragged me away.
