Santorini 4-hour Bus Tour for Cruise Ship Passengers

Our journey starts from Fira, the lively capital of Santorini, where you will wander around its cobbled streets, take fascinating photographs and, of course, relish the caldera unfolding before your eyes. Then we proceed to the neighboring Firostefani village in order to enjoy the breathtaking view of the volcano, the nearby islands and the rest of the Aegean Sea in tranquility. Afterwards we head to the peaceful Imerovigli village where you can admire traditional caves houses, explore its quaint paths and take in the sights. The tour continues to Oia, the picturesque village known for the captivating sunset, the candy-colored houses, blue-domed churches and lovely shops. There you will have the chance to visit the debris of the old castle of Agios Nikolaos, one of the five Venetian castles of Santorini, which is located on the north edge of the island offering a unique view. Our journey ends at Santo Wines, a remarkable winery at Pyrgos village, which provides a magnificent view as it is built on the caldera cliffs.

This 4 hour tour is ideal for tourists who visit the island by cruise ship since they can explore the major settlements of Santorini, admire the caldera view and the impressive Cycladic architecture, and, last but not least, cherish a fine wine tasting experience at the winery, as Santorini is famous for its local wine varieties, as well as other traditional specialties of the island, in a few hours.

Great tour of Santorini!

Nickolas picked us up from our AirB&B location, showed us his beautiful island, and then dropped us off in town for lunch. Highly recommend!

Santorini 6-hour tour

Santorini is a beautiful, unique place. This tour allows one to see a lot of the island. We felt the place was magical. There were a couple of things that detracted from the tour. There wasn't time to see Akrotiri or the black sand beach. Twice I asked for assurance that we would be back at the tram by 3:00. Both times I was assured we would be. But we didn't get back till 3:30. We had just enough time to catch the last shuttles back to the ship. Also...as stated in the description we stopped for baklava, and we stopped for a wine-tasting at Santo. I figured we would have to pay for those, though the description could be construed to think they were included in the tour. That is fine, but I didn't expect to pay for the tour guide's coffee at the first place or her glass of wine at the second place. Again, I didn't mind, but a thank you would have been appropriate, I think, and we didn't get that. All that being said, I very much liked our tour guide and she was very knowledgeable about the island. All in all a great experience, but would have been better with better time management.

Dear customer, We would like to thank you for the time that you spent in order to make a comment for our excursion,this is very important for us because we always try to get better. Though,at your first stop for baklava in Oia the guide's coffee was free from the coffee shop and it was written on your receipt as a discount.Additionaly,she offered to pay for her glass of wine when you were to the winery and you politely told her that it was on you.Unfortunately there are a lot of factors which may affect the time management,such as the traffic and the time that we spend at a spot that we may enjoy more.Allow me to inform you that we visited Akrotiri,Red beach is located there.Αs far as the black beach is concerned it is true that we didn't make it to be there on time but the guide offered to get you there without extra charge.However,the most important fact for us is that you enjoyed your time there and you are satisfied from your tour.We would like to apologize for everything that may didn't like you and for any missunderstanding that may happened.We hope to have the chance to serve you better next time.Thank you very much.
