Description

Climb aboard the luxury, high-speed Champion Jet 2 catamaran and journey to Santorini in just 2.5 hours. Upon arrival at the port of Athinios, take a tour of the island by air-conditioned bus. Listen to informative commentary from your guide (available in English, German, French, Italian, Polish and Russian) about the history of one of the most romantic islands in Greece.

Travel through the beautiful countryside en route to the village of Oia at the northernmost tip of the island. Built on the edge of a volcanic caldera, the village offers magnificent views of the blue and white houses studded along the hillside.

Continue to Fira and get plenty of free time to explore the island's capital. Stroll down the picturesque alleys and take in the views of the architecture typical to these Cycladic islands. Window-shop the shops or enjoy a drink at a bar with stunning views of the volcano and its caldera cliffs.

Then, get the option to stay in the capital or go for a 2-hour swim off the black sand beach of Perissa or Perivolos. Alternatively, travel by boat to the caldera (subject to availability) for views of the volcano up close. Depart for Crete at 17:45 and journey back to the Port of Rethymno, where the tour services end.
