Full description
Your experience starts off from Crete on the luxurious high-speed catamaran "Champion Jet 2." On arrival at Thiras port, you'll board a comfortable, air-conditioned bus with your experienced guides (Russian, English, German, French, Polish, and Italian) who will provide information about the island and its history. Your first stop is the unique village of Oia. Built on the northern part of the Caldera rim, Oia offers magnificent views of houses studded along the volcanic rock hillside overlooking both the Mediterranean and Aegean sea. Next, visit the island’s capital Fira, where you will have plenty of free time to explore the picturesque alleys, admire the incomparable Aegean architecture, shop, or simply enjoy a drink. Then, you have the choice of spending more time in Fira, visiting the magnificent black beach of Perivolos, or taking a boat tour of the Caldera (subject to availability). Finally, you'll return to the port for the trip back to Crete.

I am delighted! My dream came true, I saw a snow-white Fira! A clear organization, disciplined tourists, a competent guide. Fira was not impressed (very little time), But the option: swimming on a volcanic beach was a success: good lunch, warm sea, good beach! Recommend!

The Seajet was fast and well organized, but the air conditioning was turned up so that everyone was freezing properly. Knowing that beforehand would have been great. A sweater too! There are far too many tourists in Santorini, it was horror! A debris and crush, no trace of fun and enjoyment. It is actually a cheek to drag these tourist crowds through this island even in mid-September !!!!! Our whole coach was not amused!
