Definitely worth the day trip. There was a lack of communication about what we actually had to do to get our tickets. Once we did find out (asking multiple people at the port) we found out that we needed to get in line to get our tickets even though we had vouchers. Not a big deal, but then once we were given the tickets we didn’t know the red marker was our bus number. Overall everyone was very kind but all it would take is an email saying “go to ticket stand to pick up your tickets and the red number is your bus number.” Instead we were left trying to figure all that out on our own.
The agency has nice app, which works well with all ordered trips, but a trip to Santorini was not perfect, because the app showed meeting point at a different place, than the very late mail from the agency. There were no precise instructions how to proceed after arriving at Santorini. Once we figured that out, everything was fine. The trip is very demanding especially when hot. But it is a must see destination.
Everything was great due to Galina, the guide. But the company did extremely bad. Nobody had informed us that the guide would have waited us in Santorini, not in Heraklion. We arrived at the port by 7:00 a.m. and found no guide. We did not know what to do for a long time.
Santorini is well worth the trip, however the ferry ride is 2.5 hours one way, not 1.5 hours as we were told. That left only about 4 hours in Santorini so you are very rushed. You really need much longer to enjoy this spectacular location
It was quite a good trip,absolutly valued the money. If you wouldnt go to Santorini for a week it a good option to get a bit experience of it. I would definetly recommend this trip. We had a really good guide.
