Beautiful places, not very good c
The places to cover in the itinerary are beautiful, the logistics are good, but they do not share the complete information, the time of answers to the questions is much and not by all means, it seems that they prefer to go to expensive stores and leave a lot of time there , instead of some tourist spots

Very good
In general we were satisfied, with the exception of the hotel shuttle service to the ferry terminal in Santorini, the driver who did not understand English or Spanish left us without advising us how to process the shipment to the ship. They must know apart from their original language, English and Spanish

The crossing is scheduled at the ideal time of the day so that you can enjoy the sun on deck and marvel at the deep blue of the Aegean Sea. The name of the island denotes "heap of stones" or "rocky place", but a later version connects it to the hero Mykono, son of the king of Delos, Anius.

Upon your arrival, one of our English-speaking representatives will welcome you, transfer you to your hotel and introduce you to this famous island.

The rest of the day is free for you to relax and immerse yourself in the 'slow' way of life of the natives.

The island's cuisine is mainly Mediterranean, which means that vegetables and olive oil are an integral part of the daily menu, together with certain spices (oregano, basil ...) as well as many fish and seafood dishes.

Just a few minutes away by ferry, there is the historic island of Delos, which, according to Greek mythology, is the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. This small island, inhabited since 3000 B.C., was one of the most important cultural centers of antiquity.

13
DISCOVERING SANTORINI

Free day for you and your companion to explore this magical island, considered to be the lost continent of Atlantis, at your own pace.

Optionally, you can choose to go on a dazzling sailboat tour that includes visits to the small islands within the caldera, Nea and Palea Kameni, with the hot springs of green and yellow waters.
