About Santorini

Santorini is famous not only for its natural beauty but for its cosmopolitan lifestyle with a vigorous nightlife and various restaurants and cocktail bars along with fantastic accommodation facilities with views over the Caldera.

Santorini was destroyed by a powerful volcanic eruption in 1500 B.C. covering the island completely and destroying a highly advanced and powerful civilization (Akrotiri) that lived in the city at the time. However, this eruption created an unrivalled wild landscape with enchanting views and attractions that now make Santorini a must see place.

Stunning clean beaches with black shining pebbles and rugged landscape in the background coupled with black, white and red sands make Santorini a truly unforgettable experience. Famous for its "Caldera", the collection of cliffs bordering the Aegean Sea that in ancient times was an active volcano, Santorini is the Cyclades' most prized possession.

About Ios

Ios island is situated in the Greek Cyclades Islands and is a famous tourist destination, attracting visitors with its golden beaches and the characteristic Aegean architecture. The island is just 18km long and 10km wide with a small population of 1,820 people.

Ios is also well known as one of the top Greek party islands alongside Mykonos, with its wealth of discos and bars in the main town; Chora and the various beaches. Most tourists either stay in the many hotels within the main village of Chora or head to the package beach areas of Theodoti, Kalamos and Manganari.

Ios, however, also caters for people looking for a quieter, more relaxing holiday, with its long stretches of sandy beaches and crystal clear waters.

    Great Service
    • This is the first time that my husband and I have done island hopping and we were very impressed at how quick we were all boarded and on our way. So much so that we are looking to book another trip next year visiting more islands. Thank you.

    Great trip
    • Really enjoyed our trip. Sad there was not breakfast offered anywhere after an overnight trip. Also, staff on land at checkin to get tickets was rude.

    Why does it say you have to be at checkin 2hrs prior?
    • On my purchased ticket it insisted that i need to check in nearly 2hrs before departure, which i did, but no one was even there to check me in until 15min prior to departure...i could have slept in & arrived at 8.50 instead of 6.15. Its a long cheap ride & the ferry was kept clean & was comfy. Its just the checkin that was horrible.
