What people are saying about Fira

Thomas was super fun and had lots of info! Take the tour!

Thomas was our driver for the day and customized our tour for exactly what we wanted to do. He was a safe driver and provided tons of facts and interesting details along our drive. We stopped in several breathtaking places to take pictures. Some were off the beaten path and places that tourists haven't quite caught on to yet. Took this on our honeymoon trip and would definitely recommend it to others. Great job Thomas!

Great great view definitely worth the walk down the stairs. The cable car ride is recommended to really appreciate the panorama. The discovery on foot from Fira to Firostefani is also enriching with the explanations of Myrna, a guide to recommend. Benevolent and solar like this beautiful island.
