I would like to give a shout out to our tour guide Kostas for a lovely tour. He was articulate, knowledgeable, funny and kind. If you are reading this Kostas, this is Jan & June. We are back home now but our tour with you was a highlight to our visit to Santorini. Thank you so much!
On Thurs. 9/27/18, we took this tour with our amazing guide-Vasilly. There was a total of (6) guests which made the tour feel "private". Vasilly kept us amused with many stories, much history and a few quizzes to keep us on our toes throughout the afternoon (on a very dreary & drizzly day) on this wonderful island. Well worth the fee and offered different sites than one may venture to on their own. Highly recommend it!
What a wonderful way to spend a day in Santorini. We are so glad we booked for this tour as we saw major sights with a wonderful, knowledgeable and personable tour guide, Visiley. We learned so much Greek history and Visiley you took great photographs of the members of the group. There were only 6 people on the tour so it made it very personal. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to friends and family and if you get Visiley as the guide it really is an added bonus
We just spent the day with Kostas, and had one of the best travel days ever! Santorini (Thira) was beautiful, but Kostas took us to less-crowded, historically significant locations that really made the difference between ordinary and extraordinary. Sure, we saw Oia, but got there before the rush, and other than a great photo op, Oia is really just another crowded tourist mall. Regardless, we’re still glad we saw it.
Then it was off to the village of Pyrgos for a short break and some photos, then the teaching monastery dedicated to the Prophet Elias Thira, the Virgin Mary chapel (with tremendous views), the Venetsanos Winery (with more tremendous views), and finally the village of Megalochori, where we entered an authentic underground cave house. In short, we covered the island like a blanket!
All that aside, the best part of the tour was Kostas. He was polite, friendly, funny, extremely knowledgeable (lots of historical fact enhanced with Greek mythology), and just a complete joy to spend the day with. He is a great ambassador for Santorini and Greece.
Efcharisto, Kostas, for an award-winning day!
We planned the morning tour and it was the perfect was to start our vacation in Santorini! Kostas was informative, funny, and had an answer for everything. Would definitely recommend this tour to everyone.
Yesterday we took the afternoon highlights tour with Kostas. It was absolutely terrific and I believe it to be one of the best half-day tours of Santorini. One of the great features of the tour is that there is a limit of 8 people per tour. We had 6 and had a great time. Kostas explained the history of Santorini in a fun yet informative way. We even had a test at the end of the tour to make sure we had mastered our lessons (just kidding). Because of the small size we felt that we all received individual attention from Kostas. He provided excellent recommendations for restaurants as well as other things to do. Simply put this is one of the best ways to be introduced to Santorini. I recommend the Argyros Travel Agency without reservation.
We had a private tour with our group of 6 which consisted of close family and friends. It started with the wonderful help of organizing the whole thing. They were so friendly and helpful from start to finish. When we arrived it took longer than expected to arrive at our hotel so I called to let them know we would be a few minutes late at our meeting point and Sofia said oh let me have your driver pick you up at your location. He was there in a matter of minutes! Our tour guide was Vasiliy! He was so friendly, knowledgeable, charming, and made our stay in Santorini so wonderful. Apart from the wonderful sights Santorini has to offer, Vasiliy was one of our highlights of our stay. He showed us the best little places to take pictures and even became our photographer with the best backgrounds. He also gave us insight on good places to eat and even gave us info for other sights in Greece. We would take this tour all over again with Vasiliy! We visited a few other places in Greece but when we ask each other what was our favorite place we visited, we can’t help to say Santorini for sure! I think we can all agree it helped to have such wonderful breathtaking views but for sure Vasiliy and Argyros Santorini Travel Agency had a lot to do with our decision. Thank you so much!
Yesterday my husband and I took this tour (along with 5 others) and had such a wonderful time. Our tour guide, Vasiliy, was top notch! He drove us safely all around on some of the narrowest, highest roads of the island and made us feel at ease. He was so informative about Santorini and made it fun and easy to remember what he was telling us. He always made sure we were all comfortable and accounted for and made sure to find the best/easiest routes for some in our group with some walking difficulties. We had a 5-hour tour which included Oia, a monastery, and wine tasting at Venetsano Winery with beautiful sunsets! We got lots of great pictures and wonderful memories to take with us. Would high recommend this tour and especially Vasiliy!
My wife and I went on a shared (4 others) 4.5 hour tour of Santorini. Our guide was Kostos and from the moment he met us, his knowledge and character were the best attributes you could ask for in a guide.
He was very descriptive and animated and a joy to listen to. He had the patience of a saint and always ensured we all understood what he was telling us. The other members on the tour spoke very limited English, but somehow Kostos managed to communicate with them.
We cannot recommend Kostos and Argyros Travel enough. They delivered what they promised.
Thanks so much for making my boyfriend's birthday so special when he was far from home! I am in the United States and my boyfriend is in Europe for the summer. He planned a weekend getaway for his birthday. Since I couldn't be with him in person, I reached out to Argyros Santorini Travel Agency to see if they would help him celebrate by getting him some flowers and printing a card from me to give him while on the tour. They really went above and beyond to make his day special. They printed the card, bought flowers and scheduled the trip for him even when they were originally going to cancel because it wasn't full. They were so generous and sweet to add those touches when I contacted them. Thanks so much for your help, you have a wonderful team!
My family and I went to Greece (Chania and Santorini) to celebrate the 30th wedding anniversary of my parents. On the 7th August we went for the Highlight tour with wine tasting upon arriving in Santorini. I must say the whole tour was beyond my expectation. I loved how at every stopping point, our lovely and energetic tour guide Vasiliy Sivak explained the history behind it or mentioned interesting points. Vasiliy brought us to the breathtaking views, I personally loved the Prophet Elías mountain and he was really open to questions and made sure my whole family and family friends were all having great time. My whole family were very glad with the amazing photos that Vasiliy took of us and throughout the whole tour we were all just laughing enjoying the sceneries as well as the exchange of jokes and banters. We very much like to recommend Vasiliy for his excellent service. Thank you so much. The backward swimming crabs would like to thank you Mr Vasiliy for making the tour extra special for my family. You're like a good friend to us.
We took the tour on June 18, 2018. It was really amazing! They are groups of 6 people that makes it more personalized and at the end of the day you really feel you had a great day with friends. The guys were extremely kind and know exactly how to do the work. Is not just about showing places is about bonding with people, explaining everything with cool details not the usual boring info that tours give. I absolutely recommend this tour! You get to know the best places of Santorini and the wine tasting with the sunset was really breathtaking!!! Thank you for an incredible day!!
We loved our tour! The price was affordable, but the tour felt like we got even more than our money's worth! Our tour guide was so gracious and informative. We loved each stop. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to see a lot of Santorini in one afternoon.
