    It was well organized. The transfer bus came for us to our accomodation and took us to the port. After arriving with the ferry, we found our guide easily as holding a table of our bus number which was written on the ferry ticket. First we went to Oia by bus and stayed there for 1.5 hours, then we visited Fira and chose to stay there in the remaning time (2 hours). It was a nice visit to see a bit of Santorini and we will definitely go there for a longer time once. Our guide was very friendly and as she is a local she told us very interesting facts about the island. Travelling with the jet was not the best part as I have motion sickness and there were pretty big waves on the way to Santorini, but going back was better.

    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

    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.
