Full description

Explore Santorini by boat on this day trip from Crete. Take part in a guided bus tour of the island, walk through charming villages, and witness stunning views.

Your experience starts off from Crete on the luxurious high-speed catamaran "Champion Jet 2." On arrival at Thiras port, you'll board a comfortable, air-conditioned bus with your experienced guides who will provide information about the island and its history.

Your first stop is the unique village of Oia. Built on the northern part of the Caldera rim, Oia offers magnificent views of houses studded along the volcanic rock hillside overlooking both the Mediterranean and Aegean sea. Next, visit the island’s capital Fira, where you will have plenty of free time to explore the picturesque alleys, admire the incomparable Aegean architecture, shop, or simply enjoy a drink.

Then, you have the choice of spending more time in Fira, visiting the magnificent black beach of Perivolos, or taking a boat tour of the Caldera (subject to availability). Finally, you'll return to the port for the trip back to Crete.

overall good. Ferry was good even food and drinks service very slow Bus was easy to find and guide was good - told a lot, due to obligation to use mask speech was some cases difficult to understand, but safety 1st so OK Stops in 2 places were OK by time. I downloaded your app so booking was well visible there, but meeting point in Heraklion port guidance in booking is totally wrong.

Superb excursion, certainly the price is high but worth it. This is the thing to do when you are in Crete!! A guide at the top (Markos), smiling and pleasant. Explains with passion the history of his island as well as the 3 other islands that surround Santorini. Unfortunately a lot of tourism in June with the cruises so a lot of people in the two villages visited. The free time is ok and Markos shares the best places for the most beautiful photos. We are very happy with this excursion it was really beautiful !!!!

The trip was more than worth it. You could visit the typical photo spots. Since we had booked the boat tour to the volcano, the time in the city of Fira was unfortunately very short. We expected more from the boat tour. In hindsight we would have preferred to have spent more time in the city. Unfortunately, the mask requirement on the bus was partially ignored. We can highly recommend the excursion.
