What people are saying about Emporio
Love this tour! Its a full day. The driver arrived to my hotel early and took me to the tourbus pickup spot in Fira, which I appreciated. The tour was well organized, fun, and educational. If you're in Santorini for just one day it really works because you get to see so much. The tour staff are all very professional. I did my tour at the end of the season (they work 7 days a week for 7 months straight!). The weather was a bit chilly, but still perfect for seeing everything. The last stop is the sunset in Oia and coming back you just have to make sure you get on the right bus. I'd 100% recommend it!
We really enjoyed the tour. It hit all the right spots, giving just enough time to explore the attraction you were in. The ancient Akrotiri site was the highlight for us but others may find other stops as appealing — all are worth your time! Our guide had a terrific suggestion for the last stop at Oia where to go and most importantly not to go and when and where to get those coveted pictures of blue domed churches — she was spot on!
The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was beyond guide’s control. Because of the rain, there was no sunset. Katrina was great and informative. She and driver Angelo(sp?) did a very nice job of adjusting the schedule around the rain and injury to one of the other guest. Also, because of pouring rain, I was dropped off closer to my hotel than pick up point and that was REALLY appreciated.
Our guide Christina was fabulous, telling us about Santorini’s history at every opportunity, and providing good recommendations for our free time. The tour covered a really nice balance of culture, history and natural tourist attractions. A really great tour to cover the highlights particularly if you don’t have much time in Santorini!
It would be better during the tour of the ancient city in Akrotiri to ask people to stand in a circular manner with the person explaining in the centre because my friends and I didn't get to hear or see some details when the tour guide would point on her book, as only the front people are close enough.
