Great views on the tour with opportunities to take great pictures. Wine portion was lacking. When your ended we were droppped off in the village with the cable car. Given 2 choices to get back to ship. Wait in line for cable car for an hour plus or walk down over 500 steps with donkey manure on them. Not good choices. Wish they offered to drop us off at the water where we met our bus. Read Less

Nice stop at winery for 3 samples of win and nice appetizers. No tour of place. Souviners for sale. Lots of driving around then on to Oia. Could not tell the difference between this place and town at top of Cable car. Just narrow and very crowded walk ways past tons of souviner shops. Highly overrated tour. However, we were in port for 2pm to 8pm so unlike 3 prior cruises the line for cable car down was not overly long. Read Less

Santorini is as stunning as you see on every photo. Cruise excursions were brilliant and half the price! Beware donkeys and the cable cars are a nightmare if there are numerous cruises in. We walked down 600 steps to get back to the ship rather than waiting about 2 hours for the cable cars! Only about 36 people can fit on at any one time and with thousands of people this is a problem! Apparently you can get a water taxi from the boat to elsewhere on the island and you don't have to go through the rigmoral and it isn't expensive. Read Less

We went to a Winery first (the Dessert Wine is incredible!), then went the Town of Oli which is so picturesque, then onto the Captial Fier for the return... Do be prepared for LONG wait to catch the Cable Car back to the Tender Boats. Read Less

We enjoyed the wine tasting with its phenomenal view, but our time in Oia was cut so short by the crowds and gridlock of buses that on balance our excursion was no better than average. Our tender ride was too long and our very long wait for the cable car cut our time short at the end. We missed our dinner reservation made after careful research and long before our trip because our excursion returned to Fira to late for dinner, especially with the cable car line looming. The line desperately needs supervision to prevent numerous outride rude people staying until the last minute and then breaking in line to get down for their tender. I guess they didn't give up their dinner in town. A better solution would be to avoid the dreaded cable car completely by returning to the pier at the southern portion of the island. Read Less

10,000 people on Santorini (4 ships). Uncomfortably crowded. Celebrity staff insisted we must not misd the last ferry at 8:30; cable car line was about 1/2 mile long at 7:30 resulting in me and dozens of others to walk the dangerous and slippery donkey path 800’ down to the ferry. Many fell and I was told there were still 600 people not yet on the ship at 8:30. Bad Planning. Read Less

Average tour, Oia whilst very pretty was a waste of time for us as we are not shoppers, the wine tasting was manic and devoid of information. The walk back to the cable car was tiring but luckily the queue was short.

I knew that we would only get a small taste of this breathtaking place. Visiting Oia and seeing the views was a great experience. We chose the ships Oia wine tasting and walking tour. The winery was nice especially since we were the only ship that day. Walking through Oia was also a nice experience but its clear just about everything is geared towards tourism. I couldn't imagine being there with two or more ships docked at the same time. Be sure to patronize one of the small cafes that offer great views while dining or having a drink. Read Less
