What people are saying about Fira

Absolutely incredible experience. You can’t beat the view of Santorini from the air. The process was extremely easy with our driver picking us up and driving us to the helicopter with no issues. The pilot was Roman who was extremely nice, helpful and professional. Took us on a beautiful flight and was extremely informative about the history and facts regarding the island. The views he was able to show us in the helicopter were incredible. I would recommend this activity to anyone traveling to Santorini.

An experience of pure happiness ... the safari circuit for experienced riders allows you to discover all the landscapes offered by the island of Santorini. From the black sand beach to the small traditional village of Megalochori via the steep paths surrounded by cliffs of volcanic rocks: a feast for the eyes! And what a pleasure to gallop in restraint in such settings! Thank you for these moments of happiness and for the memories that we take with us!

great excursion. we really liked it. driving, exciting, informative. beautiful landscapes, interesting places that can then be re-examined in more detail. wonderful sightseeing tour of the island. and the organizers are very cool. but do not wear black clothes (!), take glasses and, possibly, a mask - there will be a lot of dust.

We absolutely loved this! We had a great guide and this was a fantastic way to tour the island and see places we never would have on our own. Have no fear if you’ve never ridden an ATV before…this is truly for all skill types. My wife and I got our own individual ATV and were very happy with everything. Would highly recommend!

Demetrius was awesome he showed us some awesome spots and we learned a lot about the islands as well. Would definitely do this again when visiting Greece.
