The excursion was very good, perfect organized, we were not confused for a second, everywhere was a person to told us were to go and what to do this is very important when you have such a long trip. I think its the best solution to visit this beautiful and unique island, we had enough time to see everything. Thanks

This trip was very well organised. Departure was sharp on time and the allocated tour guide was easily identified in Santorini. The sea jet had allocated seats and all went smoothly. The awesome views in Fira and Oia Santorini were worth the long trip. The only concern was the drive from the port to the Santorini cities: a narrow road with very sharp turns in the mountain and busy traffic. Big tourist busses travel both way on a one way road. Some of the busses have to stop and give way to the ones coming from the opposite direction. Drivers have great skill and courage still it's a safety hazard with a sharp 500 m down drop.

The trip was clearly good! A bit messy on and off the boat and bad with instructions on how to get between transport buses and boats. The guide we had in Santorini was very good, but really it wasn't her we should have had because we were allowed to change bus (we didn't come with the first one because we couldn't get a seat). Very beautiful views and good tips on what to see and do. However, we did not get everything we had thought ...
