Great tour with Vicki

Vicki was a great guide throughout the whole trip, especially the morning visit to one of the villages in Santorini. Enjoyed very much also the visit to Akrotiri, where there was another tour guide (also an archeologist) who brought life to the archeological site through her sharing. Recommended!

Good but...bus was over an hour late for pickup
Overall rating
Fun factor
The overall tour was very good and it allows you to see the most visited places in Santorini. Only negative would be that the bus was over an hour late for pickup at our hotel. They said it was because of a flat tire, however no email or phone call was made to make us aware of that, it was up to us to call and find out what the delay was.
