Stunning place and views

Santorini is a lovely island with amazing houses, churches, views, history, nature. Many people visit it so it can become quite crowdy. October is a good time to visit and we were lucky that there was just one cruise ship that day. I recommend you check your voucher received from the local partner as get your guide description has different times and you do not want to miss it!

It was great to see Santorini but the crowd was horrendous!

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.

The trip was nice, but very little time to enjoy the view. The tour guide was very nice and open. The price for the excursion was much too high at GetyourGide, the same excursion could be booked for EUR 105 per person without hotel transfer and for EUR 110 with hotel transfer.
