What people are saying about Fira

The crew was very nice and easy to talk with. They prepared amazing food and the drinks were good. The open bar was only wine, which is fine with me but others might be disappointed by that. There was a very chill vibe with a wonderful view of Santorini only able to be seen by boat. Highly recommend this experience. You wont be disappointed with the swimming opportunities near the black beach and the hot (slightly warmer...) springs.

Great experience and staff on the boat was friendly. An overall amazing trip.

Perfect, apart from the two passengers who have vanished during the trip

Friendly crew and excellent service. Enjoyed the tour.

Excellent tour with friendly hosts and good catering.
