Santorini Island Tour Excursion Reviews
Great way to see more of the island...taking a bus up the cliff instead of fighting donkeys, people and lines for cable cars...well worth it!
fantastic tour with Santorini taxi tours with Kostas-very good overview of island
FANTASTIC high light of tour. So good beautiful place. BUT the cable car going up is not for the faint hearted and coming back we queued in midday heat no shade for over an hour. There were near riots with people trying to push in. Older people fainting. Only way to get there apart from walking a high that is practically perpendicular or going on an aged donkey that is not so sure footed and with no guide to help them only at beginning and end. My son walked down and found that it was next to impossible with the amount of donkey poo everywhere. We then waited another hour again in the heat for the tender. If the cruise liners want to keep stopping here they need to sort this out somebody will die if not 100%fit.
Great place to visit, must take a tour and see as much as you can. Had been here before so did the Island tour. Guide was good.
Island is beautiful and the sunset reflecting on the mountain and roof tops was amazing.
Suggest riding the Gondola to the top. Donkeys may be fun for those under 40 but definitely slower and smellier.This was one of the independent tours we took. It was smaller 10 people and more intimate than the larger Cruise Tours (40+). Better opportunity as well to ask questions and our bus driver was able to stay one step ahead of the regular Cruise tours.
Entitled "Santorini: Akrotiri - The Lost City of Atlantis", this was a scenic drive of this beautiful island and stop to tour Akrotiri, a Minoan city that is still undergoing excavation. This is the highest point on the island and offered terrific views and photo ops. Everything about this excursion was wonderful!
Was met at the top of the cable car on our arrival and driven all over the island. Had plenty of stops for photo opportunities plus time on our own to walk around Oia. Also stopped at Santo Wines for a wine tasting. Very happy with our tour. Although we got back to the cable car in plenty of time to catch the tender it would be wise to allow plenty of time to allow for the huge queue waiting to go down. We waited for at least 1-hour at the top cathcing the last scheduled tender but there were many more people waiting behind us. I guess they all made it back on-board OK.
