    Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
    Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
    When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
    Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our tour guide really let us down on this trip. The audio quality on the bus was poor so it was very difficult to understand what he was saying. We also didn't have any kind of audio device so that we could hear him speak when we were off the bus. The guide didn't use a sign or any other kind of placard to help us keep track of him. When we returned to Fira at the end of the trip, the guide got out far ahead of some members of our group and it was impossible to know where to go to catch the gondola for our return. When we did catch up with our guide, he didn't take us all the way to the gondola line - he just directed us to go straight ahead and we "couldn't miss it". Another guide overhead us and offered to let us join her to find the line for the gondolas. Thank goodness for the other guide! Time was a big problem - we were returned to Fira so late that we had to walk down the donkey path to catch the last boat tender. The only plus for this tour was the chance to skip the gondola line at the start of the tour. I cannot recommend this tour - worst ever, for lots of reasons.

    Evangelo met us at the exit of the cable car as we had agreed. He drove us to the popular locations on the island while he gave us some history and helped us get some wonderful photos. He also took us to some lesser known locations and we got to see things most tourists do not get to see. It was a wonderful tour and I would definitely recommend.

    The hills were a challenge for my sister with health problems. She had a hard time trying to get up the hill to the cable car. Sophia our guide was amazing. After making sure her group was ok she came back to help my sister. She helped her up the hill and cut us through the long cable car line. She rode the cable car with us and stayed with us till my sister safely got back on the ship. Sophia was a fantastic guide!!

    ELVIS IS THE BEST! We had an amazing tour and couldn’t stop raving about it. So much fun and we got to see everything we wanted and more. So many photo ops, shopping, and beautiful sites! This was the best tour we went on during our cruise and it’s mostly because of Elvis. We love santorini! #ElvisLives

    If you want to do a tour of santorini on your own, be among the early ones to get off the cruise ship tender boat and catch the early cable car to the top of Fira. Once on top, head to the right and walk straight ahead until you reach the bus station on your left. About 10 minutes walk. Take the bus to Oia first so that you can be back in Fira before the crowd build up for the cable car trip down to the Harbour. At Euro 2 each way, this is a steal. Do the blue dome and windmills picture taking and any other that you want and return to Fira from the same bus stop. Firostefani is merely a 20-minute walk from Fira but not much different from what you see in Oia. Fira itself is a nice walk, viewing the churches, hotels, eating places and the caldera. Don't forget the shopping. The queue back to the tender boat from the top of Fira can be hours long so don't do so at the last minute or you will have to make your own way to the next port.

    This was a small group with a van that is able to take us around in narrow streets. We were told to not expect to see any blue dome prior to visiting this island, but on this tour, there was a big blue dome in our first stop. Super happy with that. George was our tour guide who was super nice and communicated clearly. We are very happy with this tour.
