Frequently Asked Questions

What if I am not sure about how many guests I will have?
Santorini tour group sizes are notoriously unstable. We are happy to work with you as best we can to establish a range of likely attendees and price the tour with that range in mind.

If my plans change may I change my reservation?
If you want to change your tour or tour date you can do so up to 72 hours prior to the trip by sending an e-mail or calling us.

Is there a charge for changing a reservation?
No there is no charge for changing a reservation.

Where do the tours start from?
Your personal tour guide will pick you up for free from your hotel, cable car, airport or port or everywhere in Santorini.

How long is the tour?
The tour typically takes 4-8 hours, but since all our tours are private, there are no up or down limits.

Are your vehicles air-conditioned?
Yes, all of our vehicles are air-conditioned.

Is there a lot of walking?
No, we do a lot of stops for picture taking to give you the opportunity to experience Santorini. All of the stops on our Sightseeing Tours are just a few yards from the vehicles and therefore you do not need to walk far. If you prefer to stay on the bus, you can take pictures from your seat.

Do we stop for lunch on the Tour?
Yes! In Santorini with so much great food, it would be crazy not to. Some people like to grab a quick pizza or a hot dog, and some people like to sit down for a nice relaxing meal in Restaurant. Either is an option, but just know that if we sit down for a relaxing meal we might have to move faster to get in the rest of the sights.

Do you have bathroom stops?
Yes, we have scheduled bathroom stops along the routes. Should you required additional stops please let your tour guide know at the beginning of the tour and we will be more than happy to accommodate your request.

What is the difference between your private suggested tours and a group coach tour?
The personal tours offer you the luxury and comfort of designing your trip, with the guidance of one of our expert tour designers, in accordance with your wishes, time frame, budgetary concerns and flexibility in structure. Most importantly, your itinerary will be organized for your own private party of family and friends.

Will I be back in time before my ship departs the port?
Yes. Our shore excursions depart from Santorini port and return well before sailing.
Will you refund my money if I miss my tour because the ship is late or cannot make it into port?
Yes. You will receive a full refund for your tour if you cannot make a tour departure due to ship delay or a missed port call. You will of course also receive a full refund if weather or an equipment problem prevents the tour operator from delivering the tour. Simply let us know within two weeks of the date of the tour, and we will issue a full refund.

Am I expected to tip the Guide/Driver?
Extending a gratuity to your guide or driver is strictly optional but greatly appreciated by those guiding you through your tour.

We respond to requests within 14 hours on working days.
