If u ever wanted to discover santorini in one day, then don't miss this one!

The trip was booked on line, everything was done efficiently and on time. Starting with info about the meeting point, pick-up and course of the trip perfectly. Your great guide. Her English was so communicative that even those less familiar with the language were able to arrive on time for the meeting. In a word, a revelation. I recommend it to everyone.

If you don't have the luxury of time in Santorini, check out this comprehensive tour. The guide was a gem, she was energetic. All the best places in the comfort of a bus.

Great tour for everyone who has a hotel on the beach and still wants to explore the island without a rental car.

Nice guide, interesting stops and enough time in Fira.
