This is possibly the prettiest place I have ever been, and I am well travelled. Tour was well organised. Guide was well versed. Only suggestion I would have is more time in oia and dropping The main town Turia as it is busy and not as pretty. Definitely do the volcano tour!

Amazing day in Santorini. Well organised, everything is taken care of so you can relax and enjoy the views. The boat trip is really comfortable and the tour guides explain everything. Plenty of opportunities for superb photos. Skip the recommended restaurants and walk further along for quieter restaurants with equally amazing views. Take cash for drinks and snacks on the boat and a charging pack so you can take loads of photos without the worry of running low on battery. This is a once in a lifetime trip that you will not regret.

The organization was okay. Quickly presented the tickets at the port and off we went on the ship. You can go out on the deck at the back to take photos. An announcement draws attention to the information on the tickets regarding the buses. The language spoken is also stated at the front of the bus. So just keep your eyes open. The guide will tell you about the history of Santorini. Very entertaining and interesting presentation. We didn't do a tour but stayed in town. Everything is sufficient in terms of time. There was never any stress. The ferry was also a bit late, so we were able to stay in town until 4:15 p.m. We were back in Heraklion shortly after 7 p.m. great trip
