Full description
Your experience starts off from Crete on the luxurious high-speed catamaran "Champion Jet 2." On arrival at Thiras port, you'll board a comfortable, air-conditioned bus with your experienced guides (Russian, English, German, French, Polish, and Italian) who will provide information about the island and its history. Your first stop is the unique village of Oia. Built on the northern part of the Caldera rim, Oia offers magnificent views of houses studded along the volcanic rock hillside overlooking both the Mediterranean and Aegean sea. Next, visit the island’s capital Fira, where you will have plenty of free time to explore the picturesque alleys, admire the incomparable Aegean architecture, shop, or simply enjoy a drink. Then, you have the choice of spending more time in Fira, visiting the magnificent black beach of Perivolos, or taking a boat tour of the Caldera (subject to availability). Finally, you'll return to the port for the trip back to Crete.

    Everything went great! The duration is not 13 hours as stated but went from 8.30 a.m. to around 7 p.m.! The trip with the catamaran took 2.5 hours each way, so you were only 5 hours in total. In addition, a total of about 1 hour on the bus, the actual stay was not really long, but it was still worth it. Due to the Corona period, Santorini was not overcrowded, which we found to be very pleasant.

    Super organized, friendly guide, relaxed excursion

    The day tour to santorini was very well organized. There was enough free time to look at everything in peace and to eat comfortably. The bus trip between the excursions was also very interesting. Our guide was super nice and funny. She told us a lot of things about the island, the people there and Greek mythology without getting boring. I would recommend the tour if you only have one day in santorini because you can see all the things worth seeing, but I can also see the cities individually.

    Well organized, beautiful island

    Everything went smoothly, from boarding to bus tour. Times are a bit tight, 1 hour and a half to visit Oia and 2 and a half hours to visit Fira, but we managed to see both centers. The guide (in Eng ours) was well prepared and nice. The organization is also excellent. For the afternoon they gave us two options: - visit 2:30 in Fira - visit to the beach and 45 min of Fira We opted for the first one and, considering that we ate in a place recommended by them, we managed to do everything. Definitely positive experience! The only negative note, in the ferry the seats are assigned in a completely random way ...
