This is an efficient way to visit some Santorini important landmarks if you don't have much time. Our guide (Maria) was very enthusiastic and gave us a fair amount of interesting information while driving from one place to another. My only complaint is that you waste around 2h just picking up people from distant spots (it was a full big bus). Time that could have been spent perhaps visiting more places or staying longer at the places we visited: each stop was very timed and it felt a bit rush rush. They could have put clients from the same area in the bus so picking up everybody wouldn't have taken that long. They made it at the end of the activity to drop us off anyways.

Its a prompt And organized Tour to see rhe island in a day. We easily joined it w Proper instructions on pick up And drop off. Hiw we wish there was more time to Explore FIRA And Oia. But we understand we cnt squeeze everything in a day had we lingered in those places.

Nice visit to fira and oia but that it would have been possible for us to do with the local bus. Visit of the monastery very fast and impossible to enter. We only stayed 15 minutes. Beautiful archaeological site to see despite the price. Could be included in the tour. Red beach, we did not visit it, preferring to go to dinner. (Lack of planning for dinner because we did not know that we were having dinner around 3 p.m. in free time in fira) very beautiful sunset in oia but be careful, there are a lot of people wanting to take THE photo. Expect to be pushed around
