We also visited a winery on this tour..not really worth it but the views were amazing and I was able to get some spectacular sunset pictures from this spot.

Just the view from this site is worth taking the tour, the wine is not exactly what one would like if they enjoy a good glass of wine. The time spent was adequate to take a few pics, finish your glass and then back on the bus

We were hustled from one site to the other with only an hour in Oia, 1/2 hour at the winery. The rest was the drive and a not so great tour guide. We were sorry we did not explore on our own, but wanted to catch the first tender.

We booked this tour independently trying to avoid a huge crowd of people. The tour guide was phenomenal. Ancient art and history degrees. Lived in one of the small villages. Very flexible. Akrotiri has recently reopened after the roof collapse in 2005 and was incredible. Visited Sigalas Estate winery and sampled tons (bought tons too). Oia is very picturesque with the white walls and blue roofs. Ended in Fira with a walk down to the docks with the donkeys. Great day. Favorie port of call for most of our group.

The buses were comfortable. We had ample time in Oia and at the Winery. Really nice pictures of the blue domed churches and the city. The drop off in Fira was great because we could spend as much time as we wanted before riding the cable car down.

The winery visit was disappointing. The guide at the winery could not be heard over the machinery and the snack was "rock hard" chunks of bread and cheese. The wine tasting was a farce - three tiny glasses of inferior wines.

We were taken to Oia's Santo Winery to enjoy a few glasses of wine and the beautiful scenery. We were given about 30 minutes to spend there, plenty of time to sample the red and white wines and enjoy the incredible scenery of Oia.

Not quite enough time in Oia and the wine tasting was less than what we expected. The wine tour consisted of a three minute talk about the winery and then off to taste their samples. Suggestion for the winery, please slice the bread thinner, it would make it easier to eat.

Wonderful tour guide and beautiful sights. The winery is situated in a great location, though the wine wasn't very good. Oia should not be missed, though during our morning tour many of the shops were still closed.

Santorini is amazing! I would love to return here again very soon. We did a tour which i enjoyed however i think it was way to expensive. The main reason we took the tour was to get of the ship quicker. At Santorini you are at anchor, if you are not on a tour you have to collect a disembarkation number for reception - this will then allow you to get on a tender in order (not sure how busy it was). The tour took us to Santo wines which was lovely (wine was awful) the view from there was beautiful, we then headed to Oia, picture perfect make sure you head to the northern point for a beautiful view and just to experience the feel and sounds of the small village. After Oia we ended up in Fira - like Oia but larger, not quite as nice. The cable car down to the small port where the tenders are leaves from Fira. We paid EUR64 per person for the tour. To do it on your own is much cheaper -Cable car is EUR4PP each way (or donkey for EUR5PP. Taxi to Oia is approx EUR20 or if you can get it the bus is EUR1.20PP each way. Had we have known all this we probably would have done our own thing and skipped the Winery.
