OIA

OIA was beautiful. We had 2 hours free time there ... waiting for sunset. OIA was the highlight of my Greece trip. The downside was the bus pickup was late, and even though I called they kept saying the bus was at my pickup spot but it wasn't. It finally came 10 minutes late. Also, of this 8hr tour we were on the second half ( 4 hr ) but the bus was almost full...only single seats left. I realized that friends/relatives grabbed the window seats so couples who came on couldn't sit together.

Dear John, Thank you for your feedback, you help us to be better. We are really glad that you enjoy Oia. It is common and recognized by most of our customers that we show a great deal of detail and we are really sorry if we missed something this time. We will take your words very seriously. We hope you come back to the island and give us the opportunity to serve you better again!

I do not recommend, not really a tour

We booked a half-day tour and apparently joined a group that was already on a tour for the rest of the day, it felt weird and unexpected. We were dropped of at the first village and were told this was the last part of their day and ‘only to take photos’ no story, no tour, nothing. The tourguide didn’t even come to Oia but stepped out of the bus earlier. I do not recommend this tour, a taxi or regular bus would have been cheaper…..

Dear Donna_V First of all thank you for your review and your comments , that helps us to be better . We feel sorry for your disappointment with joining our tour . Really this tour is a part of the whole day tour Santorini Classic Highlights but it was a mistake of your guide if didn't make the guiding to the villages . We apologise for this and we hope to visit again the island and offer you another tour with a discount. Have a great winter ! Best regards Maria

Underwhelming bus tour

I've booked many full and half day tours so I have a good idea what a typically tour should be. We where staying in Oia and got picked up from a nearby place. We where taken to another bus and the tour guide left the bus after 10 minutes never to return. We got a few minutes to see a place near Fira (5 mins) then got dropped off at Oia. There was no guide to direct anyone, or any additional value other than a bus ride which can be had for 2.50 with a city bus.

A great tour if you don’t want a full day in the sun!

This was a lovely little trip that ended with a beautiful sunset. You get to see the famous viewing points & sights of Santorini, ending in Oia for around 2 hours. Oia is very busy & a bit overpriced, but Imerovigli is a lovely cliff top location that we wished you spent more time at! The tour guide was very knowledgeable & friendly. A great trip if you don’t want to be out in the heat all day.

Thank you very much for your review! The purpose of the trip is to get to know the magic of the villages of the island. Each place has its own beauty! In Oia, as you rightly mentioned, there is a lot of traffic since It is high season and has many visitors. If in the future you are given the opportunity to come back to our island, choose quieter periods such as Autumn or Spring. We look forward to seeing you again and we always remain at your disposal.

Just an overpriced ride to Oia.

The "tour" is just a ride to Oia. We stopped at one neighborhood for three mins to take pictures (verrrrry quietly as not to disturb nearby hotel patrons or residents). Then we dropped off the "tour guide" back in Fira and headed to Oia. In Oia we were dropped off several hours waaaay before sunset and provided a time to meet back at the bus. There's no tour or guidance in Oia - remember the guide is gone. You have plenty of time to roam around drink shop and eat before sunset. No information/history/facts about Santorini or Greece was provided and the tour guide's English skills/level of proficiency was questionable. Just catch the local bus.

Un peu déçu de cette excursion, un des arrêts prévu n'a pas été fait...La prestation n'a donc pas été complète dommage... Le point de rendez vous n'est pas évident à trouver, n'oublions pas que nous sommes des touristes et que nous ne connaissons pas tous les lieux ! Je ne conseille pas forcément cette excursion il est finalement bien plus simple et moins couteux de prendre un bus de ville et de découvrir par soi-même
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Dear guest, We appreciate your feedback regarding your recent tour! Please give us more information about the date you had the tour so we can find out exactly what happened. The locations of the meeting points are predetermined in each village, something that is also mentioned in the description of the excursion. We must also clarify that Blue Dome is not just a transfer from one village to another. It is an excursion that includes an escort, which gives all the necessary information for each area, both historical and folkloric. In any case we remain at your disposal for any other clarification you need. We hope you come back to our island and give us the opportunity to host you on our other tours.

Zuerst wurde uns die falsche Abholzeit mitgeteilt und dann wurden wir am vereinbarten Treffpunkt nicht eingesammelt! Einfach nur enttäuschend!
