What people are saying about Fira

We were surprised To find out that no other people joined our tour, so it was great to have a private tour! We learned quite a lot about the history of the churches, life in Santorini and the cable car ride provided stunning views of Fira! Just a tip to book this tour fairly early upon arrival so you could take full advantage of all the information! Roseli was a knowledgeable and personable tour guide and we appreciated! Highly recommend !!

Great great view definitely worth the walk down the stairs. The cable car ride is recommended to really appreciate the panorama. The discovery on foot from Fira to Firostefani is also enriching with the explanations of Myrna, a guide to recommend. Benevolent and solar like this beautiful island.

It was fun, alot of steps but well worth the view, just make sure to bring a bottle of water, hat and sunglasses.

It was such a beautiful experience with so much history. Our guide was so nice and helpful.

Was able to see Fira well, detailed history and good walking exercise!
