Santorini Tour from Crete

Our bus will pick you up in the morning around 06:00 am. It will take you to Crete’s Heraklion Port. Around 30 minutes drive. Our driver will give you a return ticket with the number of the bus in Crete. At the ticket kiosk you will give your ticket, and you will receive the ferry boat ticket and also the Santorini tour bus number. After that you will board the ferry Boat. It departs at 08:00 am. A 2 hours and 15 minutes cruise across the Aegean Sea. At 10:15 am you will reach the Santorini’s Athinios port. The ferry has a snack bar where you can find lots of snacks and drinks to choose from. By booking this tour to Santorini you also book standard seats on it. Your seat is written on the ferry tickets. You may choose to upgrade to VIP seats for an extra charge.

Your Santorini tour guide will meet you outside the boat and escort you to the tour bus. With this the six hours bus tour begins. Our first visit is the Oia Village.

Oia Village

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

We will be there around two hours. 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

The capital of Santorini. It is on top of a 300m cliff that overlooks the Aegean sea.

The town is known for its sunsets and stunning vistas. It enchants visitors with its iconic white buildings with the vibrant domes. You can go through its narrow streets to visit charming cafes, shops, and traditional taverns serving Greek food. Visit also the Museum of Prehistoric Thera. The museum offers insights into the island’s ancient civilizations.

You may also take lots of photographs. We will spend two hours there. 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 hours. This time is lost from your time at the town.

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

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


Bring comfortable walking shoes with rubber soles for a good grip.

A hat, sun glasses, and a sun cream.
