The boat trip can be difficult for many people due to choppy waves. If you get sick from boat trips then you won't enjoy this trip. However, Santorini is well worth viewing. Unfortunately it is loved to death by the foreign traveller and you will find the crush of the crowd unpleasant. We did enjoy our experience, however, particularly an excellent meal at a Santorini restaurant overlooking the caldera. It is a very full and tiring day but worthwhile if you have stamina and are not affected by boat motion.
This is a fabulous island to visit with stunning scenery. I was really impressed with the organisation of this trip - our guide was excellent in her presentation of information about life on Santorini, the historical perspective, a little of how the island was formed, and local plants etc. I would recommend people to visit in spring time as there were more than enough tourists here already! It was windy and we had some rough weather on the ferry trip back.
Our trip was canceled last minute without real explanation. After we complained, they rebooked us for the following day and after some issues with pick-up and vouchers, it was a wonderful experience on Santorini. Our guide Athina was absolutely fantastic and the detour to the archeological site akrostiri proposed by the driver Mario was a wonderful addition to the trip.
Well organized. I left from Rethymno. It would have been a better tour if the ferry trip had taken 2 hours in each direction and the extra 2 hours could behave been spent between Oia and Fira/Thira. That said, we got to see beautiful parts of Santorini and had some time to shop and sample Santorini cuisine. A very good tour.
Our captains were so nice and so accommodating. The food was great and the island you visit is stunning! It was the perfect amount of time. Long enough that we got to hang out for a while but not get bored. If you’re wondering whether or not to do it, definitely book!! It was so fun
