Calesso, do not book a private tour of Santorini. The beauty of the island can be best viewed by yourself with a good map. You will probably tender into Old Fira. Take a donkey ride up to the top of the port and it is a short walk to Spiridakos Cars and Cruises. We love to rent a car and travel around by ourselves. You are on your own schedule and you can see parts of the island that a normal excursion will never see. You can drive north to Oia (the O is silent) and travel all the way down to the Red/White beaches and Perivolos. You can tour great wineries or just soak in the beautiful Greecian sun on a myriad of sometimes uninhabited beaches. It is by far our favorite port in the world and we like to make the most of it.
