An amazing experience awaits visitors at Akrotiri village.

Well organized!

Good option to see most of the island in one day

Apparently there were some internal organisational issues with the bus at the beginning but they sorted it out. Perhaps because of the somewhat delayed start there was not much time in some of the places, just a quick photostop, but still worth it if you do not have much time and a car yourself. For wine tasting, better drink it quickly and run to the museum if you want to manage to see something at that site. Also be back in the buss timely otherwise you risk being left behind. But that is emphasised all the time and they actually did leave 2 people behind who were either late or decided to skip the rest of the trip. Otherwise a great experience.
