What people are saying about Fira

100% recommended! The lady was so kind and accepted all of us into her home and made us feel welcome. The food was superb, a nice selection of traditional foods which was filling. The experience was one of the best ones of our lives, the views were amazing and the kayaks were easy to use! We were taken into some caves which was a surreal experience, and the guidance was spot on. Snorkelling was so much fun, the sea was so clear and warm so we could snorkel and swim for as long as we wanted to! Deffo give this a go if you can!

This was amazing … going in the caves were incredible. Worth every penny. We did this on our last day in Greece. This was my Favourite excursion out of all we’ve done 1) wine tour 2) sunset Oia bbq 3 ) private tour panoramic of santorini (that is also a must )

Brilliant tour of the shoreline and a sea cave, with a swimming stop and a fantastic view of the sunset from the water. The guides were helpful and very friendly. The tour was capped off by a traditional mezze dinner. The transfers were efficient and on time.

Amazing day out. From our arrival at Akrotiri, kayaking on the Santorini coast line to a delicious picnic lunch. Couldn't fault it.

Amazing and extremely punctual driver Jorgos and best guide ever - Dimos from Santorini ✨✨
