Terrible experience

Most terrible experience, both VIATOR and PLATANOS TOURS. I live on the other side of the world and this was my chance to experience Santorini. After waiting for more than an hour onboard the Seajet catamaran our day tour was cancelled without any clear reason given. Now waiting for money to be refunded but this is not what I wanted, I booked a tour which should be a lifetime experience, living on the other side of the world it is not probable I can ever do it again. Extremely poor service from Platanos Tours and Viator, no clear communication, no alternatives offered, not even a sorry, but just a waste of time. I booked this through Viator as I thought I could trust their service level, but there simply was no service at all.

Day trip to Santorini

Overall this was a very enjoyable trip, quite expensive but I consider well spent if you are unable to stay overnight in Santorini and on limited time. To start the ferry trip was in poor weather conditions making it very rough and a large percentage of customers were very sick on the way over, I would suggest people take medication for sea sickness with them. The bus was well organised and we had the opportunity and enough time at the stops along the way, with a lot of informative history given by our guide. I would however suggest she be far more mindful of her own opinion in recomending of the Donkey Taxis as it is well known world wide these animals are overworked by the owners and disrespected by tourists who have no regard for their welfare, it is also said these donkeys are made to continue working after tourists have gone to bed carrying the garbage from the night before, so please do not make any suggestion that using these animals is ok, there are other alternatives and other tour companies are suggesting to not support riding these donkeys.

Ein super schönes Erlebnis. Man kann die Fährentickets auch einzeln kaufen und auf Eigenregiem die Reise angehen. Man muss aber bedenken, dass man sich einen Taxi/ Shuttle etc vom Hafen nach Oia/ Fira (Hin- und Rückfahrt) organisieren muss. Der Weg in Oia/Fira ist sehr holprig und auch in September waren sehr viele Touristen unterwegs. Ich rate ab, selber in die Städte zufahren. Mit der Tour war die Hin- und Rückfahrt inbegriffen und im Endeffekt kommt man preislich gesehen ähnlich aus. Während der Fahrt hat unsere Reisebegleitung informative und spannende Informationen erzählt: Die Fahrt war also nie langweilig. Ungefähre Agenda der Tour war: 8:00-10:00 Fähre nach Santorini - Hafen 10:10-11:00 Hinfahrt nach Oia 11:00 - 12:30 Aufenthalt in Oia (sehr empfehlenswert) 12:30 - 13:00 Fahrt nach Fira 13:00 - 15:25 Aufenthalt in Fira 15:25 - 15:45 Fahrt zum Hafen 16:00 - 18:00 Rückfahrt nach Kreta Persönlich hätte ich einen längeren Aufenthalt in Oia als in Fira gewünscht. Man hat viel mehr Gelegenheit schöne Fotos und Stellen in Oia zu sehen. Des Weiteren kann man ein Transfer vom Hotel zum Hafen und umgekehrt dazu buchen. Ich persönlich bin mit einem Mietwagen hin. Parktickets für Langparker lag bei 3,00€/Tag. Man spart sich also Zeit, wenn man bereits ein Auto gemietet hat. Kommt am Besten auch mindestens eine halbe Stunden vorher. Die endgültigen Tickets hatten unsere Reisebegleitungen, so dass das Ganze viel zu lange gedauert hat. Hinzu kommt, dass die Polizei auch die Corona-Regeln vor dem Einlass kontrolliert haben, spricht in unserem Fall 2-G-Regel. Fazit: Sehr schönes Tagestrip und das Geld hat sich auch gelohnt. Mir persönlich ging es in Santorini zu hektisch rum, dass mir der Tagestrip ausgereicht hat.
