    The tour was a lot of fun and it was very nice to get a glimpse of Santorini. Our guide was great, spoke very good German and was able to tell a lot about the island. Unfortunately, we lost an hour of free time due to traffic. And I have to say that the organization on the ferry was a bit chaotic, but Get your Guide is not responsible for that at all. Then there was a crowd of people down on board and waited 15 minutes until they could disembark.

    Well organized. I left from Rethymno. It would have been a better tour if the ferry trip had taken 2 hours in each direction and the extra 2 hours could behave been spent between Oia and Fira/Thira. That said, we got to see beautiful parts of Santorini and had some time to shop and sample Santorini cuisine. A very good tour.

    Great way to see Santorini, but...

    Contrary to what information was available before the trip, the ferry has full food/drink service on board (initially thought nothing was available) and takes 2 hours to the island and 2 hours back (initially thought it was 4 over). The bus around the island was fine; our tour guide was a bit unorganized and talked about the same things over and over which made it difficult to relax after a day of sight seeing. Overall, it was a good way to get to and around Santorini, but I wish there was a bit more information ahead of time.
