We opted to take the tram vs taking the donkeys or walking down the steps. We waited 40 minutes on a hot day. At first I thought the ride would be a big scary, but I sat with my back facing up so I didn't have to look down. All around, it wasn't a bad trip. Only took a few... More

A nice tram ride from Fira to Santorini port. It takes around 5 minutes to come down. and the cable cars are available at every 20 mins. If you want you can take donkey ride too.

Not to badly priced, clean and a great view as you go down. But should have got a return as well walked back up.

Our day in Santorini was fabulous. The cable car experience because of the queue was dreadful. We were on an excursion from a cruise ship. There were 5 cruise ships in the bay that day...10'000 extra tourists. Santorini has a population of 12'000 so you can imagine. As this was August it was extremely hot. We queued for at least...

Complete and utter waste of time and money. €5 per person to go down and up. Yes really €10 for round-trip. At the port there is nothing but three ramshackle "restaurants". More like glorified cafes set to trap cruise ship passengers. Sadly if you don't use the cable car it's a long way, about 700 steps. Seriously if you can... More

We used the cable car to get up to the heart of Santorini from our cruise ship. Some tourists chose to ride the mules up the steep steps from the port. Being an animal lover, I totally opted out of this experience because the tempetures were over 100 degrees and they offered these animals NO water! The tram costs about... More

We used the Tram when our cruise boat docked in Santorini. It cost around 4 euro per person for a one way ticket. It was a very useful way to get to Fira from the port. We did not have a long line getting a ride up in the morning. We waited for about twenty minutes and the ride is... More

The best way to go up is by tram/cable car. The view is stunning and the queuing not that bad. It's a hell of a hill for the poor donkeys to climb. So, save the donkeys and use the tram!

We were on a cruise and docked early in the morning. I decided to go ashore and landed about 9.30am. The way to the tram/cable car was quite apparent and the wait not too long at about 25 mins. Other people have commented on the length of wait and there only being one cashier. I am sure the former depends... More
