Visit the island of Santorini for a day from your accommodation in Crete!

After an early-morning transfer from your accommodation (in option), you'll head for the nearest port. If you have a car or are staying close to one of the 2 ports, go directly to the Port of Heraklion or the Port of Rethymnon.

You'll be given your ferry tickets and a brochure in English detailing your day's excursion; then you'll board a boat and head for the island of Santorini.

On arrival at Santorini, you'll be met by your guide. Take a bus to Oia. The village of Oia is famous for its white houses and blue domes overlooking the sea, and you'll enjoy two hours of sightseeing and free time. Your guide will recommend to you local places to explore the village of Oia.

Your day continues on to the village of Fira, Santorini's capital. Fira is a must-see and offers postcard panoramas to the delight of its 3,000 inhabitants and the tourists. Enjoy two hours of sightseeing and free time in Fira, strolling through the pedestrian-only historic center.

At the end of the day, you'll take the ferry back to Crete. 

On arrival, if you have selected the transfer option, you will be taken back to your departure point.
