An hour late for our tour, we exited the cable car in Fira and found a guide with our name who walked us to the Karavas Travel Tours where the lady said she wasn't expecting us until noon.... It was awkward, but she said she found us a driver who could be there in 30 minutes. It was fine for us to go look around the town for 30 minutes and pick up some gifts. By 10:45, we were off with our driver, Sotirios, who taught us to pose as he took our photos. We stopped in Oia where are driver dropped us off and said he'd be back in 2 hours. We assured him one was plenty, and he said he may have to do a pick up with another group. It was odd since we booked him for the day. Luckily our driver shared his business card, so when we were obviously lost, another driver contacted him for us and he showed up within 10 minutes. It was a long drive to the Black Beach where we went to Perivolos for lunch, a view, and beach access for 32 Euros. We made it back to Fira by 4 pm after a fantastic day!
