Overview
Swap an independent ferry trip to Santorini from Crete for a full-day tour that includes a cruise and sightseeing once you’re there. Avoid the hassle of arranging your own cabs or buses on the Cycladic island; and simply sit back and admire its whitewashed clifftop towns as you sail the caldera. Then, enjoy a coach tour with time to stroll in the capital, Thira; Oia, and along the island’s clifftops.

    Santorini Volcano
    Stop: 8 hours
    Cruise to world-famous Santorini Island, one of the most picturesque islands in the Mediterranean. Visit Oia and Fira and walk along the breathtaking cliffs of the Santorini caldera. Enjoy a guided tour of the island as well as free time to explore at your leisure. Take the opportunity of a short cruise during your stay on Crete and make a day trip to the neighbouring island of Santorini. The boat trip takes about 2-3 hours. On arrival in the former volcanic crater of Santorini look high up on the crater rim, where the houses of Thyra lie like a white pearl necklace. After arriving in the harbor of the island the busses are waiting for you to explore the most famous places in Santorini. The journey will bring you to picturesque village of Oia and Thyra and optionally visit the black beach of Perissos. In the early evening you will travel back to Crete.

The tour was a little rushed, but it worth if you don't have time to spend on the islands. Athena was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable. The view from the top of Santorini is amazing. Various good restaurants to eat and have a beer contemplating the volcano's caldera. The

We booked through sparrow travel’s office in Stalis. The tour it’s self was well timed giving us a decent amount of time to see the sights and enjoy the atmosphere. This island is gorgeous and I would recommend that anyone visiting the area should take the time to see it.

We did this trip as a supplemental way to see Santorini. Due to high winds during our stay on Mykonos the ferries had been cancelled so we had to cancel our two day stay on this island. Since we wanted to see what we missed we took this one day trip from Crete. We are glad we

Our day started at 6 am where they picked us up at our hotel. We entered the Goldstarboat and left at 7:30 am. So this is the reason why it is such a long day, we were told it was a 2 hour ride. It was actually a 3.5 hour ride there and a 4 hour ride home. The weather was good

A visit to Santorini should be on everyone’s must-do list. As package holidays to Santorini can be expensive, I was excited to see that you can sail directly there from where I was staying in Rethmynon in Crete twice a week (Tuesdays and Saturdays). There are also frequent
