Meet with English speaking license guide at the entrance of your Hotel. After a 10’ drive reach the traditional village of Pyrgos. Pyrgos is built on the top of a hill and presents a panoramic view of the whole island. The village has a population of 500 inhabitants, and used to be the capital of the island until the early 1800s, the village is formed by traditional houses built all around the Venetian castle (view from a distance), and the small streets follow the shape of the hill. The village has many churches: the church of Theotokaki with its beautiful frescoes and old icons; Agia Triada, the churches of Agia Theodosia; Metamorphosi tou Sotira (Transfiguration of the Saviour); Agios Nikolaos; Eisodia tis Theotokou (Presentation of the Virgin Mary) and the Archangel Michael. Your guide will explain many things about the rich ecclesiastical history of the village.

Then, drive to the local Santo winery where a guided tour, a wine tasting of 3 local wines and a short video about the local wine making, will be offered at the installations of the winery of a total stowage of about 5,000 tons. The winery was built and is in operation since 1992. Enjoy the breathtaking view from the winery while your free time. The structure has been preserved in order to show the old way wine was once produced using the best of the islands’ fundamental elements. Carved into the natural volcanic rock are the cave-like vats. Also view antique presses that have been restored.

Upon completion of the visit you will proceed to the most northern tip of the island to experience the unique village of Oia. This dramatic small village built on a steep slope of the caldera has many of its dwellings nestled in niches hewn into the volcanic rock. As you walk through its narrow cobbled streets, you will come across many tiny shops which offer a varied and unusual collection of hand-made works of ceramic art, paintings and semi-precious jewellery. Oia, perched on the edge of the cliffs offers spectacular views of Fira and the volcano.

Drive to Fira, the picturesque capital town of the island, built on the caldera rim. Visit of the town and walk with the guide pointing out the highlights.

Kyvernitis was our in country travel representative managed exclusively by our state side travel agent. Based on how smoothly the trip went while in Greece, I'd say this group did a great job! We never did talk to Kyvernitis directly, but the results of their work was excellent!

John was outstanding

By: Joey28031

Reviewed on: 17 Jul 2016

John offered a great tour of the area - he was flexible and informative. We enjoyed his showing us around the area and found him to be an excellent guide. A larger vehicle would have been a bit more comfortable for four passengers, but that is a small matter. The day overall was very good.

Greece Honeymoon May 2017

By: William Venzke

Reviewed on: 23 May 2017

Eclectic Greece was a great tour operator. From the sunset cruise and the food and wine tasting experience in Oia, to the walking tour in Athens, everything went smoothly and our tour guides were top notch. Everything they planned ran smoothly and we never had to worry about where to meet, etc. because it was all planned for us and the hotels were all looped in. This made for a wonderful and stress free honeymoon filled with great activities!

The Cherry on TopI have been on so many tours that

By: VN

Reviewed on: 30 May 2017

The guides enthusiasm for their subject and genuine interest in creating a dialogue to light your imagination created an experience of a lifetime. It was not just the typical ad nauseum recitation of empty dates and facts but rather stories of times and peoples of historic proportions woven into a tapestry of tales that left you with an understanding of the culture. Bravo!

Exceptional Service and Private Tour of Athens

By: maria

Reviewed on: 02 Aug 2017

Our tour for 14 people went off without any hitch including transportation and the guide. The driver was extremely kind and got us to the Parthenon where we met our guide. Our guide was extremely accommodating for our group, which was tired from travel, some very young in age, some very old in age (and mobile-challenged) and some not felling well. (It was our last day in Greece and we just arrived from a flight from Mykonos.) The tour guide was completely flexible and adapted to our group. We had an amazing private tour of the Parthenon and loved all the details the guide provided us, making it that much more special to us. She ensured that we had great photos to capture the memories and time in the gift shop. Even after the tour, when one family member forgot their phone on the shuttle bus, they went out of their way to make sure that we got the phone back. We are so grateful to Eclectic Greece by Kyvernitis Travel for their professional and exceptional service. Thank you!

The pool was the best part of this resort

By: Paige

Reviewed on: 10 Aug 2017

We debated on how to review the resort because we have no idea what the other resorts on Santorini were like. Our rooms were average, very old though, and the T.V,'s had no English channels for the rare times we felt like turning them on before bed. The food was not great, the people who worked at the front desk didn't understand English well enough to help us with anything. The only part of the resort we enjoyed was the pool. There were not many children at this resort either. It was a 5 minute walk to the black sand beach and some of the restaurants there, which we did twice. Ultimately, we rented a car and ended up spending very little time at the resort.

Very good, we had one mishap. The car ordered to take us from the ferry to our hotel in Santorini was not there/or taken by another party. We had to secure our own car and pay them separately for a service for which we had prepaid. Everything else was Fabulous!

Santorini - Chromata

By: Katie

Reviewed on: 19 Oct 2017

I would hands down recommend working with Maddy. She was detail oriented and made our trip to Greece so effortless. We loved staying at the Chromata in Santorini. What a unique, stunning hotel with great service! We were upgraded to a suite and given a complimentary bottle of wine. Maddy’s personal recommendations for restaurants and bars in the area were very helpful. Our favorite suggestion was getting sunset drinks at Buddha bar. We will be using Maddy again for our next trip!
