This trip was very well organised. Departure was sharp on time and the allocated tour guide was easily identified in Santorini. The sea jet had allocated seats and all went smoothly. The awesome views in Fira and Oia Santorini were worth the long trip. The only concern was the drive from the port to the Santorini cities: a narrow road with very sharp turns in the mountain and busy traffic. Big tourist busses travel both way on a one way road. Some of the busses have to stop and give way to the ones coming from the opposite direction. Drivers have great skill and courage still it's a safety hazard with a sharp 500 m down drop.
Our trip was canceled last minute without real explanation. After we complained, they rebooked us for the following day and after some issues with pick-up and vouchers, it was a wonderful experience on Santorini. Our guide Athina was absolutely fantastic and the detour to the archeological site akrostiri proposed by the driver Mario was a wonderful addition to the trip.
In this day trip there is a lot of energy consuming but worth it.you get to see everything that you would want in Santorini, although is a very long day it has its rewards, wonderful weather in mid July but very crowded from the beginning of the trip till the end. The ferry runs smoothly and the tour guide were helpful.
The excursion was very good, perfect organized, we were not confused for a second, everywhere was a person to told us were to go and what to do this is very important when you have such a long trip. I think its the best solution to visit this beautiful and unique island, we had enough time to see everything. Thanks
Great experience! They do not know what to do with mobile vouchers, so be sure to print your voucher before going on the excursion.
