Santorini!, beautiful place. Unfortunaly i booked 2 days and payed! but at the eind of the first one i decided to come back with the groep to Creta. I was very disapointed. Santorini, was my main reason to fly to Creta. I supose to get on the speed ferry, 2 hours but i was dumpt with the one day groep in a slow ferry, 3 hours go and 3 hours back.
Just one hour and half to spend in Oia, walk around by yourself, rush everrything, no time to enjoy at all. Just took some pictures and back to the bus to go to Fira, the capital. Here we had 2 free hours and here i wanted to spend the night. No explanation at all from the quide, i got an envelope with the name of a hotel in Kamira, at the oost kust some where near the beach. I didn't got to see this hotel neither, i don t know why, the quide took me walking to a kind of cheap hostel, no elevator, important for me.
My hotel was in Creta near the beach, i didn t pay to stay in Santorini in a cheap hostel near the beach, on the other coast!.
If you just want to get an idea about Oia and Fira you can take this trip for one day. Otherwise be careful and be sure about the place when you gone spend the night.

It was such smooth sailing on the speed boat, before you know it you are staring at the one and only Santorini. The excursion in itself was a bit rush, rush you don't have time to really enjoy anything that you have to get back on the bus. Our guide I must say was not very pleasant and I think she was more interested to get rid of us than to walk around with us. There was a lot of confusion about our stay and again our guide said that she knows nothing and left us there.
The island is beautiful but we didn't get to do the climb of the stairs. the donkeys ect. Again because our guide just left us and didn't not explain nothing.
We would enjoy it but like I said it was done to fast without any explanation.
