Be prepared for a really long day - 6 hours on the boat for 6 hours on Santorini plus all your transfer and wait times. So set expectations. Having said that, we did and we thought it was a great day out. Delivered on the white buildings and blue domes of Oia (suggest That better be the reason you are doing the trip). Thira not as interesting. But the guide on the bus was truly excellent and pulled it all together. Factual and entertaining. The boat was held up leaving in the morning (not their fault) but they tried to appease anyway by adjusting return schedule so no time was list and offered hot dinner for free in the return trip. Boat was beyond comfortable seating (like airplane business class) and really didn’t seem like 3 hours each way. Not sure I’d want more than a full day on santorini anyway but got my bucket list photos. Kudos all round.

We took part in the catamaran tour with three generations. There was something for everyone. The guides were super friendly and tried hard. We were always provided with food and drinks, the catamaran was also totally clean and well maintained. We had a total of 13 people on the boat. I would have liked an indication of the group size for the tour in the description.

The tour was great! The captain was the most authentic person I have ever seen, including the anchor tattoo and mermaid tattoo. For lunch there was Greek salad with bread and 2 small bottles of olive oil including drinks and ice cream (from Magnum). It was really a great tour and the water is breathtaking.

Really great experience. Big thanks to Alex and Nico who were very nice and accommodating. Very small group so nice and private. Nice boat! They went out their way to make my wife feel special on her birthday

Very nice tour with a swimming and snorkeling stop in a great bay. However, people suffering from seasickness should not do the tour. Even with little wind, the ship rocks quite a bit...
