We had to make a change to a ferry reservation and Maria (of Pelican Travel) was extremely rude and nasty. She refused to help us and told us it "was the rules". She couldn't do what we wanted. What she didn't know is our hotel (Atrina) already checked with the ferry company and we knew we could make a change.... More

I contacted them via email and was easy to book a semi-private day tour by sailing catamaran. We stopped to swim in the hot springs , red beach, and had plenty of food on board for lunch. Departing from Oia, we were excited to tour the island by boat.

We took the volcano, hot springs, and Thirasia tour. The boat picked us up in the old port of Fira at 10:30 AM and we headed off to the Volcano - Nea Kameni. We hiked to the top of the volcano and the guide explained some of the history of the volcano's eruptions. Afterwards we headed to Paleo Kameni (hot... More

This tour was beautiful-it included a trip onto the volcano for hiking, a swim to the (not so hot) hot springs, a buffet greek dinner on board, and of course, watching the sunset, which was spectacular. We booked our tickets online weeks before and picked them up at the Fira office 1 hour before the tour. I do wish the... More

Was I glad I booked the dinner cruise, YES. What a great trip. We died it on a Friday in late August and it was worth every penny or euro. We picked up the tickets beforehand without any problems and set sail mid afternoon. The boat was not too packed and this added to the experience. Food and drinks on-board... More

We had booked the Sunset Caldera Trip and the snorkelling trip before we arrived in Santorini. We picked our tickets up when we arrived and although I didn't have our booking no. they found our tickets in no time. After the Sunset Trip, as I didn't do so well with the swimming, we decided to cancel the snorkelling trip, which... More

I booked the tour online well in advance of our cruise stop in Santorini, and by doing so was able to save a few euros on the price of the ticket. The confirmation I received from Pelican Travel advised where to pick up the tickets which was a small storefront on the pier very close to where our cruise ship... More

Stopped for a day at Santorini on Saturday 22 September. Looking back I consider myself very lucky to have booked a private tour f the island with Pelican Travel - my wife and I along with two relatives managed to make this six hour stopover a memorable one. Pelican's guide and driver for the day - Nicholas - was able... More

Pelican Travel did their utmost to accommodate us when one of the tours we booked - the archaeological one-had to be postponed because of a strike of archaeological site workers in Akroteri. At the time, we didn't know how long the strike would last, and if we would be able to see the site during our short visit to Santorini.... More
