What people are saying about Oia
We booked two Catamaran cruises while in Greece and both did not disappoint in the slightest! If you're in Greece and specifically in Santorini, this is an amazing way to spend a day or afternoon/evening. This cruise in particular was made great by the crew members and employees. The transfer service got us to the pier safely and in a timely manner. The loading of the catamarans was efficient and organized, and once we set sail it was relaxing and FUN for the entire duration. We truly did not want it to end. The food was fantastic and even though the weather that day (which is out of anyone's control) forced the captain to make some adjustments to our itinerary, the crew made sure we still swam around in gorgeous comfortable water, both by a black pebble beach and near the volcano. The sunset was breathtaking and romantic, and the cruise ended with hilarious dancing among most of the folks on board, while others laughed along from their seats. Highly recommended!
The excellent review begins and ends with our tour guide, Constantinos. He was punctual, kind, flexible, funny, smart, and overall a great person to be our Santorini liason. Having already hiked from Fira to Oia the previous day, we had already seen some sights, so he made sure that we weren't repetitive and gave great recommendations to add to the private tour such as the Akrotiri ruins and finishing at the Venetsanos Winery which was beautiful. Along with the amazing views and pictures, Constantinos (being a local teacher) really taught us a lot about the history of Santorini, covering several topics - very informative! We were very entertained and comfortable throughout the tour and we would HIGHLY recommend this service.
The day with Judy was the #1 highlight of our time in Greece. She lives on Santorini and knows it so well that while hordes of tourists were on streets near us, we were seeing the same views on streets that were not crowded. We were in 3 villages, were taken to the best food at a local restaurant, learned about the island, and taught photographic tricks of the trade we did not know even though we are experienced photographers (esp. my husband). I even learned a few things that helped me take better photos with my phone... Aside from all that, Judy is kind, fun to be with, and a delight to spend the day with. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to know more. firstname.lastname@example.org
It was our friend’s birthday and they went above and beyond: buying a cake with her name on it and celebrating with everyone on board. It was amazing! The catch was spectacular, and it was great to be able to eat such a fresh, tasty seafood dinner. It was a more intimate fishing tour with about 12 people, and this was perfect. The sunset was beautiful. The snorkeling was fun, as we got to see plenty of fish. We tried our hand at fishing with hooks and caught a couple. It was a warm feeling on this trip and I would highly recommend this trip. Take the non-drowsy Dramamine ahead of time so you can fully enjoy the experience.
Judy is an absolutely incredible teacher and this tour is amazing! She takes the time to help to teach and improve your photography skills no matter what your skill level or amount of experience. She will take you to unique parts of the island to get the shots that few others will ever manage to find. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone who enjoys photography and wants to get to know and experience Santorini on a level that only a local can provide.
