Wonderful DayTrip to explore Santorini
NadineFabienne_F, 26-04-2022
The Trip was amazing you will see a lot of great places in the beautiful island of santorini during this daytour. The village Oia is the most beautiful one in my opinion but fira has also breathtaking sea views with a spectacular scenery. Its really the best way to see santorini in just one day.
A great little day trip

We had a great time on the day trip, Oia was beautiful, we got some amazing pictures and had a wonderful time exploring and shopping. The second half of the day in Fira was also very fun, though we thought just being in Oia for the day would have been just fine, there was nothing to do in Fira we couldn't have done in Oia.
