What people are saying about Athinios Ferry Port

The tour was a brilliant way to see some other parts of the island. We booked the night before but were still picked up from close to our villa. The tour guide was brilliant with lots of fun stories. Hiking up the volcano wasn’t too tough (just very hot but they did say that). Having a swim in the hot spring was lovely after the hike. Therissa is very pretty and a nice stop for lunch, the guide was able to recommend a nice restaurant with some fresh seafood. Before going back to port sailed past some lovely parts of the island which was nice to get a chance to see. It was then really clear which coaches to get onto to go to Oia after. We got to Oia just in time to get some photos, have dinner, and see the sunset before being taken back to Perissa. Overall it was a lovely day. Very well organised

Great experience and totally worth the money/ value for money. Although if you don't want to be with lots of people on a boat (50 odd) then this isn't the right tour for you. Got to see everything on the description and had plenty of time to enjoy in each location.

Foarte mulțumită, bună organizare,mâncare bună, ne au luat cu autobuzul și ne au adus la sfârșit în același loc. Un ghid minunat care ne a povestit multe despre Santorini și am văzut un apus superb. Recomand cu drag aceasta excursie!

Fun experience, the guide Anna explained everything clearly and there was plently of time to do everything.

The crew was delightful--everything about out cruise was perfect (food, wine, other guests on board).
