Know before you go
You’ll want to cool off with a refreshing swim on your summer private tour of Santorini so bring a swimming suit and a beach towel with you!
If you're a cruise-ship passenger:
You will disembark in Santorini by tender boats arriving only at the old port of Fira.
To find the exit of the cable car in Fira follow these steps:
- Take a tender boat from your cruise ship
- Once ashore, go to the cable car
- Pay a ticket of 6 Euros per person (one way), take a cable car ride up to Fira town (3 min.)
- Exit the cable car building.
- Behind the gate, our guide or driver will be holding an Omega Travel sign with your name on it.
Only passengers arriving to Santorini in organized groups or those purchasing shore excursions on board disembark at Athinios port. These travelers get off the ship first. Everyone else is considered to be an individual traveler and disembarks only at the old port of Fira.
The donkeys arrive at a different place in Fira, not to the cable car exit.
The stairs bring you next to the cable car exit but we strongly recommend using the cable car for your convenience.
