Santorini Fira Walking Tour Excursion Reviews

Fira stands on the edge of a 260-meter cliff on the island of Santorini and provides breathtaking views of its traditional white architecture, blue waters, and a labyrinth of narrow streets lined with shops.

Again the tour guide basically walked us to square and said the cable car back to the ship is that away find it. It was not that easy to find and it was completely crowded and hot. The pier was completely inundated with people from two other huge cruise ships. The only saving grace was there was hardly anyone waiting to get back to our little Oceania ship Was never so happy to make it back on board. Read Less

Not a good experience! I love Santorini but not with about one million people and another million tour buses at the same time in a small space. LOTS of walking up uneven stone stairs...finally arriving in the village which is still beautiful but not as enjoyable as it would have been with less people. Find a taverna and have a glass of wine and just enjoy the best you can! Read Less

SANTORINI: This was our only MSC excursion of the trip (we had OBCs to spend), which is pricey @ 76 euros ($65 if you pre-book); however, you get off the ship first and go directly to the port where you get on tour buses that whisk you to Fira, on the other end of the island. The lower your excursion # the faster you get there--we were #2 and beat most of the crowds. You spend about an hour wandering thru the white-washed town seeing the sites and taking pictures. Then it's back on the bus and thru the countryside (full of donkeys) to a winery for snacks, tastings and a FREE bathroom. After about 30 mins you head to the main town of Oia and are led on a breakneck-paced tour to the cliff, overlooking the bay. This is where you are released and directed to the tram (ticket provided) which takes you down to another port where your tenders are located. The walk along the cliffside is spectacular, with its hanging doors, restaurants, shops and all sorts of tourist stuff . There are a couple of churches along the way. The line for the tram was 20 mins long and probably got worse as the day progressed??? Read Less

When you get off the ship there are a few vendors offering transfers to Oia. They take you on a boat to Oia and let you explore and the take the bus back to Fira. The cable car line down to the port gets really long. We walked down the steps. There were a ton of donkeys. Unfortunately the donkeys seemed to be tired, overworked and some sick. Sharing the stairs with donkeys is not easy and you end up smelling a little like them. But its an experience.The scenery was great. Too many people in confined streets. I could only imagine how the crowd is in the middle of the season. Read Less

Fira is a little more commercialized than Oia.

Fira is a little more commercialized than Oia. But as long as you get to see those stunning views, walking through the same tourist shops doesn't seem so boring.

Should have done more homework before choosing this included tour. Although we did get to see the iconic blue domes on churches and the views were great, the tour was mostly walking down pedestrian paths past tourist shops.
