Great way to explore some of the other islands surrounding Thira. Convenient and comfortable bus pick up near our hotel in Fira along with an informative guide who came along for the entire day and provided background and history of each location. Free time was more than sufficient at each stop and we did not feel rushed at all throughout the day. Weather was perfect which offered a beautiful view of the island of Thera from the Aegean Sea. Highly recommend!

Our catamaran tour was everything we'd hoped it would be. With a small group of travelers (9 of us in total) we had plenty of room to mingle if we desired or find a spot to keep to ourselves on the boat. Our boat was in excellent condition, the crew were very kind & attentive, all our wants & needs were met. The lunch was divine & HUGE. We are thrilled that we booked this & highly recommend it to any other Santorini visitors.

Perfect cruise, boat is very nice and decorated with lots of seating options. Drinks really are unlimited and my glass was never empty. Would skip on the snacks part as it was not the nicest, just wait for dinner at a restaurant. Can’t recommend this enough.

Fabulous from start to finish. From the very fun bus journey when collected (especially when they have to free fall backwards to go to the port !) to the beautiful meal and stunning sunset . The crew on board were so friendly .

The food was great, the tours was great and the staff was very friendly. I'd highly recommend this tour!
