The planning and organisation of the trip was really good. I had questions prior to the trip that were answered well. We’ve been on this trip before but we didn’t really enjoy the guide. Rather thank being on a bus with other English travellers we were with primarily polish speaking travellers and we felt we didn’t get a good balance from the guide.

The organization of the trip lacks details, it takes at least 1 hour by bus to get to the port of Rethymnon then 3h30/4h by ferry to the port of the island of Santorini, then there is a bus number to reach its bus and his guide once off the boat. The rest of the excursion was great, superb guide!

Everything was well organized and timely. If you only have 1 day the best way to see a lot. However, the trip to the hot springs/volcanic crater was a letdown at an extra €20. First we were put on the wrong bus by the guide without the other guide knowing anything about it. In addition, the trip was overcrowded, not a trace of romantic as advertised
