Kostas as a great tour guide. His vast knowledge of the Island of Santorini is impressive. He showed us beautiful views and offered lunch suggestions in the small town of Oia. He is also a great photograher and made sure the photos of our family included important sights in the background and made sure they were perfect. Very personable and felt comfortable with him.

Kostas was very knowledgeable. His English was excellent. He was in touch with the port and we were never concerned about missing the ship. Kostas was very thorough and showed us parts of Santorini that we would never have seen on our own or with a group tour. He was a wonderful guide.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Kostas. We were meeting him from a cruise ship and he gave us excellent instructions on how to meet up with him. We instantly felt comfortable with him. He was so knowledgeable about Santorini and Greek history and took the time in an easy to understand way to explain it to us. There was time to see all the beautiful sites as well as time to wander by ourselves. The Akrotiri excavations are not to be missed. We would highly recommend Kostas.

If you want the best of Santorini, including the tour guide, Kostas Sakavaras is the person for your tour. He took my wife and I to some of his best photo spots in Fira, Ioa and the beaches. Don't want to spoil it for you. He is awesome and we highly recommend to do Santorini with him! Very good prices, too!

Relaxed, friendly and knowledgeable, Kostas made sure we had a great day sightseeing Santorini. We travelled from the top of the island to the bottom, stopping at both popular and out-of-the-way places. He was happy to recommend other things for us to see and do on our other days on the island, too.

He tailored the tour to our interests and it was great value for money.

Our day in Santorini with Kostos was the highlight of 12 day cruise. Kostos spoke excellent English, knew a lot about the island, and was just simply fun to be with. Highly recommend him to anyone visiting Santorini.

5 stars Petur S. 11 Oct 2012

Kostas met us at the appointed time and showed us this wonderful island. He knows all the key photo spots which are many, and has a good historic knowledge about island saga. Kostas is a relax person and we felt very comfortable in this short tour around this beautiful island. We can certainly recommend he as a guide.

Our group of 7 had a great day in Santorini with Kostas. Lots of stories, great local knowledge and a genuine passion for his work. Even changed our plans so we could see the new Akrotiri dig site as it had just opened and wasn't on any big cruise ship tours yet. Great local restaurant choice for lunch.

Wonderful day - would highly recommend him.

Kostas met us when and where he said. There were 8 of us and We had very little time on the Island as our cruise ship only landed late and left that night and there were 8 cruise ships in at the same time. He knew where to go so we didn't have to fight the crowd. We had a great time, and got once in the life time pictures His English was wonderful. Thanks Kostas
