Destination: Santorini private
tours - testimonials for Niko
This is my screen saver. You can see why I think of you
& Santorini every day. It is so beautiful there. I always
have people asking me where is that place & how did I get
the picture. All of you must be very anxious to move into
the new house. Will will have to email us some pictures when
you get time.

I am sitting in my wonderful cabin on Brilliance of the Seas and just
had the best tour ever in Santorini. Our whole family agrees that Nikos at
www.santorini-private-tours.com . Nikos was warm, knowledgeable, and treated us like
family. Oh yeah, and the big bonus was that he was taking pictures of us
all day long and gave us a disk of the entire day, and did not expect us
to pay for it! We were disappointed with a couple of other tours we took
in Florence and Rome, but Nikos more than
made up for it. Also, he does not charge outrageous prices. Anyway, he
gets five stars. Gotta go; tomorrow is Athens. If you contact Nikos tell him that Jeff from Las Vegas says
Anna and Nikos,
We all had a fabulous time on our tour in Santorini. Nikos took
some great pictures and he did a terrific job in tailoring the tour
around our needs while at the same time making sure we saw all the
island's hightlights. We truly enjoyed it and want to thank both of
you! We also appreciate the effort you made to reschedule our tour
in light of the change of date for arrival. I will make sure that
we note our very pleasant experience on the chat boards and cruise
critic. Thanks again.

Upon return to Moscow we would like to thank you
SO much for one of the most wonderful days in our life! Nikos, you
really made this day! Besides you made the photos that amazed all of
us you were a bright but still tactful 'leader' of our Day.
All the words fail us when we look at the
photos!! They are brilliant! Real masterpieces! [I even couldn't
expect I could look like that ;)]
Thank you very much for your kind assistance
and for your excellent job! Hope to see you again.
Elena & Vladimir
saw your website and once again it sparks my obsolute fondness
for your island of Santorini.
I saw the
pictures of people youíve made happy and I thought that what
could be more fitting to showcase in your site but the smiling
faces of a happy group. Thanks to both of you.
after our cruise on June 2005, these people are still talking of
the wonderful time everyone had under Nikoís care for that one
unforgettable day. And those pictures Nikos took are just
gorgeous and Iíve included all in the souvenir DVD Iíve created
for the group.
And by the
way, the group from Los Angeles California whom Iíve recommended
to use your service last year were of course very happy with
you will be contacted, with my highest recommendation, by my
co-worker who is booked for the Celebrity Med Cruise this
August. His name is Mike Mahase.
I wish you
and Nikos more success.
the members of the
Family and Friends Reunion, June 2005
We will be travelling by cruiseship to
Santorini and will be arriving on Sunday August 27, 2006 at
approximately 8:00am (we would be able to start touring at about
9:00 or maybe earlier).
I had been given your name, Nikos
Sirigos from Mike Brill, who had toured with your earlier. Mike
said extremely wonderful things and suggested that we
contact you to arrange our tour.
I'm not sure if you still do tours,
but if you do, could be so kind to suggest a sample itinerary
and cost for 6 people? If you do not do tours any more, could
you possibly suggest someone who might be suitable.
Many thanks for your time.
Now that we are home and things are
settled down, I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you again
for the wonderful day you gave us when we visited Santorini on
October 10th. Our friend, Walt, made copies of the CD you gave us,
and every time I look at it I want to come back. I even downloaded
one of the pictures onto my desktop! I makes a day here at work
much more pleasant!
again for the kindness you showed all of us, and especially our
friend Mae. Getting her that birthday cake was the highlight of her
We did some shopping after we left
you, and Deb did her part to help your national economy. One of the
jewelry stores was very happy to see her! Carl also bought me a
beautiful gold and lapis necklace and I think of your beautiful
island now whenever I wear it. I still worry about the little kitty
we named Electra and hope that she found another home after the
We will definitely come back to
Santorini someday, and hope to see you again when we do. Many, many
thanks again for a most memorable day! Have a wonderful winter!
YEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!!!!! Thanks for the email,I was
worried they might of had jetlag and couldn't enjoy it. Thanks
so much again,you have been so wonderful and I will also brag
about your services all over the web too!! You have a great week
and tell Nikos I said thank you. A VERY satisfied customer and
hopefully a future customer(for myself), CC
Thank you for making our
dream tour come true. Everything was perfect and I can't wait to see
the pictures from our beautiful day.
I hope you have a wonderful winter and we look forward to seeing
you soon back in Santorini!

How are you?? Remember me and
Steve? I'm so sorry I haven't been in touch sooner. Steve and I had
an amazing Summer of Love :> After the wedding, we enjoyed our time
in Oia and in Hania, and then were off to Italy (just in time for
the heat wave). Tuscany and Milan
were beautiful, but way too hot! It was 102 degrees F, in Milan.
Then, it was back to the States for his family's reception in New
Jersey in July, back to San Francisco to open alot of presents and
write alot of thank you notes. And, finally, at the end of August,
we had our San Francisco reception in Golden Gate Park, which was
very fun. Now, I'm concentrating on finding a job now that I have my
Master's Degree in Public Health.
I wanted to let you know that I'm sending you a DVD photo show
that Steve made of all of our favorite photos from the wedding and
honeymoon, which I hope you and Nick will enjoy. If you don't have a
DVD player or if players are different there, hopefully it will play
on your computer. It's really cute; Steve added Greek music for the
Greece section and Italian music for the Italy section. I'm also
sending a CD that we put together of all the favorite love songs of
the guests that were at the wedding.
Steve and I can't thank you and Nick enough. Everyone who sees
pictures of Santorini and Selene is just blown away by the
With such a romantic wedding, our love is sure to keep going
I also wanted to ask you for a favor, if you're willing. It turns
out that we need a certified copy of our marriage certificate in
English for the Social Security Office and other authorities
They won't accept a copy that was translated and notarized here
in the states. It has to be done by the Greek Ministry of Foreign
Affairs in Athens. If we paid you the appropriate amount, could you
arrange this for us?? I could send one of the three copies of the
marriage certificate along with the DVD and CD, and we could fill
out one of your credit card charge authorization forms for the cost.
If you are too busy, I'd understand, but it would really help us.
Don't forget, if you want to make links off your website to our
website or photos, feel free. It's

We'd also be more than happy to write a testimonial or
recommendation for your site, telling all your prospective clients
how fabulous your services are! Just let us know.
Mrs. Jessica Bowen Bazyl
Just got back from the Celebrity Galaxy Eastern Med trip and wanted
to pass along my evaluations of private guides we used:
Max Leotta. He arranged all of our airport transfers and gave us a great
one-day tour of Ancient Rome. We used Max's
driver Rinaldo for several days and he was great--a real gentleman who
went out of his way to be helpful. He found out I was interested in
ancient sites so on the way back from Civatevecchia we went to Tarquinia
to see the Etruscan sites and then went to Rome's ancient port, Ostia,
which made for a really interesting day. Then, the next day, Rinaldo took
us to Hadrian's Villa, Villa D'Este (near Tivoli), and then to the
catacombs. I highly recommend Max and Rinaldo. All transfers were reliable
and efficiently arranged.
Naples-We used Gennaro at SorrentoLimo. Also
a fantastic driver and great gentleman. We used him to do the Amalfi Coast
drive and go to Herculaneum. We saw so much more than the ship's tours did
and Gennaro made us a reservation at a restaurant in Ravello that must
have the most beautiful view in the world. I highly recommend him and
intend to use him in the future.
Santorini-There is a lot of talk on
the board about not using a guide here and I agree that if you just want
to see a little scenery and visit a few shops you probably don't need one.
But if you are like me, and want to really see the island and its
archaeological sites in detail, you will find them well worth the money.
We used Nikos at
www.santorini-private-tours.com (arranged for us his
wife Anna) and they also arranged for an archaeological guide named Katherina. Akrotiri is becoming one of the most important archaeological
excavations in the world but it is a complicated, hard to visualize site
and you might as well not even go see it if you are not with a competent
guide.It was a fabulous day and Nikos said at
the end that we had seen more in that one day than most people do in a
week. We went to Akrotiri, Oia, climbed the mountain to Ancient Thera,
visited the main museum, a winery and some Byzantine sites and generally
hiked and drove all over the Island. The archaeological guide was really
great and even my seven year old son loved the day. Nikos also brings his camera and takes pictures of
your family all day and hands you a CD at the end with really great
pictures on it. This is probably controversial but we really enjoyed our
guided tour of Santorini and I think they are well worth the money
if you want to really see the sites in a day.
Athens-We went with
Spiros of Spiros Taxi service. We decided not to do Sounion and to instead
concentrate on Athens. We saw so much I couldn't believe it, and Spiros
also steered us to a great restaurant in the Plaka. We did the Acropolis,
Byzantine Church, changing of the guard, Olympic Stadiums, temple of Zeus,
Roman Forum, Greek Forum, and Archaeological Museum, all in one day. And
the price of 200 Euros was the cheapest service we could find. I liked
Spiros a lot and would definitely use him again.
We did not use private
guides on Mykonos, Rhodes, Dubrovnik, or Taormina, but instead took the
ship's tours. I did not see much value to the ship's tours on Dubrovnik or
Taormina. Our guides on Mykonos and Rhodes was good and were probably
worth the time and money. From what I could tell, a private guide would
not have enabled us to see materially more. Thanks to everyone who helped
us find and use these guides.
Thank you very much for your nice guide
now we back to japan safety
see you agai & thank you kind your guide YOSHIRO SATO Nippon
I just wanted to add my two cents.
Our group of six toured with Nikos of
www.santorini-private-tours.com on June 7, on our
Galaxy Western Med cruise, and we had the best tour with him than in
any of the other ports. He is a professional photographer, and took
many pictures of us with stunning views as backgrounds. At the end
of the tour, he drove us to his office, burned the pictures onto
CD's, and gave them to us as wonderful momentos.
During the tour, he took us to vantage points, not known by the
average tourist, for incredible views. The itinerary was extremely
flexible - he gave us a variety of options for destinations and
experiences. We have the highest regard for Nikos, and would use him
again as we definitely plan to go back to Santorini one day.
Hi Anna and Nikos,
Thank you so much for one of the most memorable
days of our lives.
Nikos, the pictures are just beautiful and really
capture the day, scratched up leg and all. It is all
healed now and my feet and ankles are not swollen
any more. Sorry if I was too much trouble, but you
have to admit that I am a trooper. No one can
believe how beautiful Santorini is! It was so great
that we would like to come again sometime and see
you. Maybe we could even bring some friends and
family. Only a tour by Nikos would do, though. It
is very special
to see our pictures on your website. I love the
one with Kristen standing on the roof.
Anna, it was so nice to meet you and put a face
to the emails. You all are such happy people and
seem to do a great business together. We wish only
the best for you. Nikos, what can I say - you're the
We will check in with you from time to time and
spread the word about our enchanting day in
Love, Karen and Kristen

Hello Nikos: Mike and I just returned to Los Angeles
from our Greek Island Cruise tonight. While going
through the hundreds of photos we took on our
vacation, we both agreed that Santorini was by far
the best island! We absolutely enjoyed your tour and
Julia, our guide was wonderful, friendly,
knowledgeable, engaging and made the memories of
this beautiful island so much more! We had private
tours in Rhodes and Ephesus also, but this one in
Santorini was the BEST. We are already discussing
going back to Santorini next year for at least a
week. Your island is absolutely gorgeous and Julia a
real jewel! Please feel free to use on your
