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!

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!

This place is all about tourists, even in low season, and it's busy. We heard MANY people say that Santorini wasn't what they expected from pictures, and that's because they hadn't done a second of research to realize that in order to see the famous blue domed churches, you have to go to Oia (don't be that person!!). We recommend getting off the tender and then taking a boat to Oia - well-marked, several options, 18 EUR if I remember correctly; your fare includes a bus ride up to Oia, as well as a bus from Oia to Thira where the ship is tendered. In Oia, you'll have to go down some narrow, twisty walkways to find the views you seek, and will likely encounter smelly donkey poop on the way - it's everywhere. Oia really is stunning, so find a place with great views for a drink (Thalami was nice) to savour. Keep an eye on the clock so you make the bus back. You'll have to walk a fair ways through Thira, as the bus can't drive on the narrow lanes. Souvenir shops line the pathways. Eventually you'll find yourself at the top of a steep hill. Either take the gondola or walk down - please don't add to the torture of those poor donkeys. Walking was fine - take it slowly, stop along the way for a picture. Read Less

Not our favorite place as my wife found it very difficult to walk around due to her handicap. The views are spectacular but everything is very expensive and there is too little to do.

We booked our own tour with Omega and it was fantastic. The only drawback is the long line to get back on the cable car to get to the ship.
