Santorini Tour from Agios Nikolaos. It includes a fast ferry cruise, bus transfer in Crete and Santorini, and guided tours of Oia and Fira towns. We use only the best, most reliable, insured boat companies on the island. The bus transfer is available from all areas around Agios Nikolaos, Elounda and Ierapetra.

Santorini Island from Agios Nikolaos

Special Note: During low season our customers are transferred to Heraklion port and not to Agios Nikolaos. This is because there is no boat heading to Santorini from there. The ferry boat from Agios Nikolaos starts around the 15th of June and finishes around the 15th of September. In such a case our team will confirm with you the booking and provide you with all necessary pick up information and transfer duration.

Our bus will pick you up in the morning. The bus will take you to Crete’s Agios Nikolaos Port. Our driver will give you a return ticket with the number of the bus in Crete. At Agios Nikolaos port you will give your ticket and you will receive the ferry tickets and the Santorini tour bus number at the ticket kiosk. After that you will board on the “High-Speed Ferry Boat.” The ferry departs at 08:00 am. It will take 2 hours and 30 minutes across the Aegean Sea to reach Santorini’s Athinios port. The ferry has a snack bar where you can find lots of different foods and drinks to choose from. By booking this tour to Santorini you also book seats on the ferry. Your seat is written on the ferry tickets. You may choose to upgrade to VIP seats for an extra charge.

Your tour guide will meet you outside the boat and escort you to the tour coach. With this the six hours bus tour begins. The day trip to Santorini includes visits to Oia and Fira towns.

Oia Village

Oia town is situated on the north tip of the island of Santorini. It is well known for its views, and the white-washed buildings with blue roofs. Oia is perfect for instagram settings. Narrow streets wind through the town. There are plenty of shops, art galleries, and coffee shops.

We will spend around two hours in Oia. After our visit to Oia, our bus will take us to Fira Town. It is a short drive of twenty to thirty minutes.

Fira Town

After our drive we reach the town of Fira. The capital of Santorini. It is situated on top of a dramatic 300m cliff that overlooks the Aegean sea.

The town is known for its sunsets and stunning vistas. This town enchants visitors with its iconic whitewashed buildings adorned with vibrant domes and cascading bougainvillaeas. You can wander through its maze-like streets to uncover charming cafes, shops, and traditional tavernas serving Greek delicacies. Visit the Museum of Prehistoric Thera. The museum offers insights into the island’s ancient civilizations.

You may do some shopping, take lots of photographs or choose to have some lunch. We will spend two hours here. During the high season we offer an optional(extra cost) cruise with a wooden boat to the volcano of Santorini. It is optional because it lasts about one and a half hour. This time is lost from your stay at the town.

After our two hour visit we board our coach and return to Athinios Port. It takes about 20 minutes to reach the port. There we will easily board the fast ferry for the journey back to Crete. At Agios Nikolaos port our bus will wait for you to take you back to your hotel.

Note that by purchasing this tour you will also receive an emergency number. You may use that number in case you forgot your meeting point on the island, lost your bus, or for any other reason. Our team will be with you from the start to the end of the tour.
