Loved this stop! My favourite! However the ship stops in Fira. Take a cable car to the top because if you walk, you’ll be dead when you reach the top! Take a taxi from Fira to Oia - it’s much nicer and breathtaking! Read More

should have done a tour! tried it on our own and got lost and stressed! took the fast boat package which sounds good, but once you get to Ammoudi Bay, the shuttle into Oia leaves right away. We wanted to have lunch first. Ended up having to walk up the hill to Oia! :( had a wonderful fresh fish lunch at Dimitries Tavern in Ammoudi Bay!! :) Then once in Oia, didn't know where to catch the shuttle to Fira! we ended up taking the city bus back and trying to find our way to the Cable Car!

We were planning to take the boat over to Oia and bus to top, but seas were a bit rough so we just took cable car to top and strolled around. Place is charming, beautiful really.. Lots of place to eat or get coffee overlooking the habor. Read More

We did the hike from Fira to Oia, and loved it! We took the cable car (do NOT walk up the donkey trail, or ride the donkeys) up from the tender dock, and just started heading left. We eventually got on the right path and wandered through the towns of Fira, Firostefani, and Imerovigli (stopping once for a smoothie and a bathroom) before getting to the more desolate parts of the trail. It took us about 3 hours, walking at a moderate pace, and despite some reviews depicting parts of the trail as scary, we never felt unsafe at ALL. Use this website for great directions--https://santorinidave.com/fira-oia-hike. In Oia we wandered off the main drag (away from the caldera) to find a more reasonably priced restaurant where we ate dolmas, greek salad with a slab of amazing feta, and dreamy yogurt with honey. We then paid 1.8E each to catch a bus back to Fira (not much of a line, pay on the bus). We stopped once on the way back and picked up a bridal party on its way to the wedding in Fira! We couldn't figure out if that was just the best way to get there, or if the bride's big day was NOT going as planned, but it made the rest of us smile a little more on the way back. Took the cable car back down and tendered back out to our ship. Beautiful day! Read Less

The further you head away from the harbor, the better the prices and service get. While you can walk down the donkey path from the top of the island, it isn't a pleasant experience. It's worth it to pay for a return trip down on the chair ... Read More
