My wife and I tried this company

Review for: Sun Island Dreams

My wife and I tried this company for the first time, and we loved the professionalism, efficiency, and quality service of their agents and managers. We would definitely recommend 100x this company to individuals that are looking for the best customer service yet. We look forward doing business with them again. Definitely worth the five stars. To summarize we went to Greece for my wife’s birthday. A 9-day trip visiting Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini in May. A trip that was planned for June 2020, but with the pandemic we had to cancel, so it was no easy task to plan a trip during this unstable time. However, Sun Island Tours kept in touched with us the whole time. Giving us updates on our accommodation and the situation within Greece with the pandemic. They had to adjust our accommodation a couple of times cause of the pandemic, but the changes were well worth it. From Athens, to Mykonos, to Santorini, our accommodation was great. Especially the Dana Villas in Santorini was top notch. From the views from our room, to the service, and management of the hotel was excellent. We couldn’t have asked for a better accommodation. We couldn't recommend a tour company anymore than this one, If you are thinking about going. Just go. It will be worth every cent.

Review for: Fun In The Sun

We were very pleased with the service provided by Sun Island Tours. They answered all of our questions and made sure that all aspects of our trip ran smoothly. When we were concerned that weather conditions might lead to a cancellation of our ferry, they were behind the scenes looking into that for us and getting new ferries booked if needed. They listened to the specifics of what we were looking for and adjusted our itinerary accordingly. Overall we were very pleased with our trip and we enjoyed working with them.

Loved our TOur

Review for: Egypt in Style

Sun Island Tours was very helpful and accessible whenever we had questions during the planning stage. The Cruise was wonderful, everything we had ever hoped for. We had a great time and met some wonderful people. The Greek Island package was great too! Sun Island choose the best hotels for us in Greece, and made sure that each hotel catered for us perfectly. In Santorini we wanted to stay at the beach, rather than the cliffside. All of our friends kept recommending the cliffside, for the caldera view. We spoke with Sun Island, and they ended up accepting our request for the beach, and choosing the perfect hotel with a view of the water. We were there for only two nights, so they organised a wonderful volcano trip with a sunset cruise on the first day, and we saw the sunset from Oia. The following night they recommended the perfect restaurant for us. The cruise in Croatia was wonderful. Very well organsied. Im glad we went for the deluve option which included touring in each destinations. The food was 5 star and sites were well beyond my dreams. What an amazing part of the world.
