Santorini Pyrgos Village Excursion Reviews

Pygros Village can be found at the highest point of Santorini, thus providing an amazing panoramic view of the island. Once the capital, what has remained are the myriad of traditional Venetian architectural structures and, of course, the magnificent sunsets.

Santorini is definitely a post card island, well known for its white buildings, blue roofs and splendid views! This is all true and deserve to be seen! Unfortunately, during our visit, we were one of four cruise ships in port, resulting in overcrowding for the villages of this small island; thus reducing the enjoyment experience. But the main issue is the bottle neck descent from Fira to the port where cruise ship shuttles are accessible. Passengers for all cruise ships have to use one of 3 options: Long chaotic line up in the heat ( 30 to 45 minutes, at least), riding down the 600 step stairway on a donkey, or descending the same stairway on foot, which is slippery, smelly, and requires us to walk too close for safety, directly behind “parked” donkeys. One of the passengers on our cruise was injured going down the stairway. In short, maybe because of the extremely high expectations we had for this port of call, this ended up to be the only one where we came back with a bit of a disappointment. But this does not change the fact that the island does offer beautiful scenic views! Read Less

Santorini is beautiful if a bit crowded.

Santorini is beautiful if a bit crowded. The wine is terrific and the people gracious.Knowing your ship is actually in a crater of a volcano is quite an interesting sight.

This tour took us to a lovely unspoilt village offering wonderful views of the whole of Santorini. Guide gave a good insight into the history and way of life on the island. The visit to the winery was disappointing and a bit of a waste of time. The tour allowed for free time to explore Fira before returning independently to the ship. Read Less

Great tour guide took us to her beautiful home town of Pyrgos with the famous white buildings with blue roofs. Lovely drives over the island and a wonderful stop at a winery (gave us a super mezze lunch and great wine) but I can't remember its name. Free time in Fira with time to shop and sightsee before getting the cable car back down. Read Less

The tour is good if you've been to Santorini before and have done Oia. The village is fun to explore. The wine end of it has no explanation. You just go in and have a glass of wine with some cheese. We had high winds and they cut short the best part, Fira. That was 3 hours of time lost, so this tour was tough to judge, but it has potential compared to the other choices after Oia. Read Less
