This is perfect if you only have time for a day trip. Perfect transportation (it’s like a boujee airplane like seating). It has food and drinks for purchase. Our guide Elena was perfect. Super knowledgeable on the local history and culture of Santorini! Bussing was perfect, picks up directly from port and takes to each location. Easy to find bussing after each stop. Thank you Elena again for a great experience and a wonderful and memorable day!

I’m so happy I booked this! The boat was amazing and the stops were very cool. I did the 10 hour long one and it was great because they provided transportation to and from oia which I really wanted to see. The guide was great and gave us information about everything we saw. Definitely would recommend doing this!

The ferry from Crete to Santorini was very modern and safe, there were several big shakes but no one in the boat got sea sick! Oia is really beautiful but food there is very expensive. Our guide is very friendly , who made the trip smoothly.

It was so awesome! We loved our guides! They were all so friendly and welcoming and very helpful and knowledgeable about the area, they are doing amazing things there! I would highly recommend them!

We did as per the announced program. I think this tour is a must while in Santorini, even if very touristic !!
