It’s a long boat ride back and fourth from Naxos and Santorini, but several of us really wanted to see the island and we knew that going in. One of the women in our group of six had a hard time understanding the English speaking guide. The bus was not air conditioned. As stated by previous reviewers, Santorini is JAM PACKED with tourists. While we were glad we had the opportunity to see the island, we all agreed we would not go back.

Excellent excursion, very well organized with very pleasant staff. Our guide Joanna and the driver Marco animated this moment with joy and happiness as soon as we arrived in Santorini. Oia is a magnificent village with its electric blue domes and its small alleys, only downside all the tourists arrive at the same time causing significant congestion, difficult to fully appreciate and take personal photos in these conditions given the short time allocated . (1h15) Fira, the capital of the island is also a city with a lot of charm, splendid views of the Aegean Sea, the alleys and the houses on the mountainside to discover for 3 hours. Much less dense than Oia. We did this activity in June, I dare not imagine in July / August. Manual

Boat trip of a little over 3 hours. Bus pickup at the port of arrival may be a little hard work on this point to find the right vehicle. A little less than an hour of explanations by the guide to cumulative journeys. The advantage is to have a lot of free time in Fira (2.5 hours in our case) for shopping, delicacies and the beauty of the city. Too bad not to have as much time in Oia because the small streets of this village are worth seeing but the crowd does not allow to visit peacefully.
