Good experience

We enjoyed our experience learning about Akrotiri and Santorini more broadly. Both our bus and museum guides were very knowledgeable and engaging. The option to be picked up near our hotel was a plus. One criticism, however, is that the bus was 20 minutes late and we were instructed to wait on the wrong side of the road. Thankfully, we spotted the bus and the driver came out looking for us. At the end of the museum tour, the guide gave us five minutes to have a look around. This didn't feel long enough and the tour would benefit from giving visitors more time to look around themselves. Other than these points, we'd recommend booking a tour.

The good , the bad & the ugly

Good- Amazing fantastic find and excellent guide Anastasia. Should be a world heritage sight. Fascinating detail. Museum visited as well. Very modern and interesting. Bad- very rushed tour approx 20 minutes only. We practically ran through there. We wish we had gone on our own by bus. The transfer was three crowded bus and alot of waiting. We would never ever do any tours because of this but had little time left on the island. It was crowded. We worry for Santorini has it is horrendous in the summer now, as at least four cruise ships aday arrive. The holiday could have been spoilt unless u go out of season and find quiet places. This was the inlg cultural thing surviving on a over populated by tourists island Ugly- To many tourists and becoming over priced, Wonderful experience!

Dear guest, Thank you very much for your review in Notos Travel Tour. The excursion you have chosen includes the best parts of the island and we are glad you enjoyed them. Regarding your comments about the crowds and traffic, we would agree with you. The number of tourists visiting the island is large. It is a unique island, with an important history, unique geographical location and geophysical situation. Therefore many people want to visit it Maybe next time you would choose a low tourist season so you can enjoy Santorini! We will be more than happy to visit us again with your friends or family!!
