Tour guide:

The tour is normally guided either by German volcanologist Dr. Tom Pfeiffer or photographer Tobias Schorr. Both have been traveling on Santorini for more than 20 years and know the island better than even most local people and are well connected there.
Tom finished his PhD studies about the great Minoan eruption of Santorini. He made the important discovery of a 3600 year-old olive tree buried alive in the pumice deposit that now can be seen in the small geological museum in Perissa.
It allowed the so-far most precise dating of one of the most significant natural event in the Bronze age (to 1613+-13 years BC).
His friend Tobias, with whom Tom alternates on this tour, is a true specialist for Greece in general: its culture and history, people, flora, fauna and of course geology. He is legendary for his good eye and often discovering rare minerals, plants, animals, or hidden archeological artifacts during the various excursions.
