We booked this trip for an afternoon cruise ship visit. Due to high winds and tendering ashore problems we were nearly 2 hours late but with the aid of telephone updates, they were still waiting for us and our trip went ahead as planned. The lady who run Santorini Karavas Travel was amazing and our driver was excellent with good English and local knowledge. He stopped at three panoramic view points which were stunning, and then gave us an hour and a half to explore the incredibly beautiful town of Oia. We then met back at our rendezvous for the return by a different road, arriving back in Thera at sunset.
Altogether a memorable three hours at a very reasonable price compared with the Ship’s shore excursion program.
An absolute highlight of our seventeen-day cruise from Rome to Istanbul was our visit to Santorini thanks to Karavas Travel. My wife had polio when she was young and uses a wheelchair and crutches. After seeing pictures of Santorini for years we thought it was cliffs and hills and not accessible. WE WERE WRONG!! We booked an accessible Santorini tour for our party of four with Karavas Travel and it far exceeded any expectations. Dina assisted us from start to finish explaining the tram system and introduced us to Thomas our tour guide/driver and “do everything” person. We booked the four-hour tour but added on two hours because there was so much to see and visit. This was not a windshield tour!Worth every penny or Euro!!
We’ve taken a number of tours on our cruise to the Greek islands and this tour of Santorini is by far the best. To start with, the tour vehicle is a 20 person Mercedes and is modern, clean and comfortable. The best part of the tour, however, was our fabulous guide George. George was very friendly, knowledgeable and engaging. He took very good care of the group and was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Santorini and of every site we visited. He knows exactly where to go and where to stand to take the best photos and always volunteers to take pics of us by each of the iconic landmarks. It was a memorable tour and we would gladly and definitely do it again!
Outstanding customer service! Dina was incredibly helpful and flexible, allowing us to customize our tour based on our interests and abilities. Traveled with my 75-year-old mother with limited mobility. Our driver Tomas was incredibly helpful and considerate, stopping at places where she would be able to walk and not feel like we missed out on anything. Incredible people to work with and I am 100% satisfied with our tour. Santorini has long been a bucket list item, and it absolutely lived up to my every expectation!
My highest recommendation.
We’re glad we decided to book this tour with you. George, our guide, was competent, thorough, and took good care of us. We were especially impressed with his solicitous care of the family that needed special assistance.
Brilliant way to see the island. We wouldn’t have been able to see or do half of what we did without your help, thank you. Dina was extremely thoughtful and made us feel so welcome. Thomas was a great guide, very informative. A fantastic day, if I could give it 6 stars I would!
This was a spectacular experience. We only had one day in Santorini, but we feel so satisfied. We highly recommend this tour to others! They went above and beyond in making sure we were all comfortable and well-informed. There were very nice touches as well such as providing cold water and informing us of public restrooms and a great gelato spot with ample time to enjoy all our stops!
Anna was amazing as a tour guide and Dina was absolutely amazing. Tassos the driver was so sweet and such a safe and amazing driver. The tour was great with AC AND water included. I got to stay at black beach at the end and no problem at all. Absolutely great!
I booked this tour because I had a limited amount of time in Santorini due to being on a cruise ship. I received great service with a wonderful driver and we got to see Santorini the way we wanted to. Thank you Dina for making my day in Santorini so special. You are amazing and made my tour so memorable. I appreciate your professionalism, friendliness, and how much you cared about making my day one that I will never forget! I would highly recommend Santorini Karavas Travel. Dina and her team are top notch!
We booked a accessible private tour as I am in a wheelchair and this tour was wonderful the knowledge and helpfulness of our driver/tour guide Tomas made the day great to see the areas of Santorini that I would not be able to see on a coach tour. The last visit was the winery of Argyros Estate and we had great time trying the wines and purchased some to take home maybe or drink in Santorini.
If you are an older traveler or even disabled and even if you are able bodied, Karavas Travel is the finest tour company you will find. They made it possible for me to view far more sights than I could could have seen otherwise. They cared for me and assisted me every step of the way. My family was given the opportunity to explore many extraordinary places with breathtaking views. There is no better tour company to be had!
We had the best time! Chris is a fantastic tour guide and photographer :). Dena the owner of the company met with us when we arrived to discuss the details of the excursion and what we wanted to do. Santorini is gorgeous and Chris knows all the main spots and added views that we would have never seen! Great time! Plus air conditioned really nice van in between added perk. Oia is incredible! Thank you Chris!
Enjoyed this small group tour as compared with busload of people. George our tour guide was excellent, speaks very fluent English, attentive, knowledgeable and fun. He was able to describe each place as well as took our photos. We were able to see everything included in the Itinerary and had time to spare, that otherwise we won’t be able to do on our own due to limited time with the cruise ship. George and Dina both are outstanding in customer service, highly recommended.
Our driver Thomas was excellent with the history of the island and Greece. Dina is at the office has long family history on the island. The tour was great!! We got a great view. We are here at first of May. Very small crowds without the boards of cruise ships. We HIGHLY recommend them for any tour. They also go to the volcano and boat tours.
We are a family company that specializes in guided semi-private or private tours & shore excursions for groups.
We also offer private transfer services and transfers for weddings and receptions in Santorini.
