Though you can walk or take a donkey to the top of the hill, it is a steep climb and the best way is by cable car which cost 10 euro each way pp. They run every few minutes so your wait is minimal unless the entire ship wants to travel at the same time.

Easiest way to travel from the Cruise terminal landing quay to the top of the hill, tickets are reasonable priced but there is very little organisation (Queue management) for the line going down. This lead to some confusion from Tourists, cutting in front of people and not knowing where to queue from.

There are a few ways you can get up and down Santorini. This cable car takes no effort. Walking up or down certainly does. I've done both but I would recommend taking the cable car up and walking down. Walking down is fun but make sure you have proper shoes. It is very uneven and there can be a lot... More

This is a very short but exciting excursion! It is worth the couple bucks for the ride. If it is hot when you get off the cable car and you want to go for a swim, wait till you get back to the ship my husband almost was arrested for jumping in the water!

There's a cheap way to get onto Sentosa and then there the cable car. You can walk onto the island or get a shuttle bus for free. Or you can get the monorail for a couple of S$. You can also shell out S$33 and get a cable car onto the island, or over to the new extension, up into... More

The cable car ride was short & steep. The view of the sea was outstanding and breath taking. It was worth every second.

Our tour provided a cable car ride to reach the bottom, and our tender to the ship. While taking the cable car beats walking down a thousand or so stairs with donkeys competing for the path, I always have concerns for how well the equipment is maintained. This cable car seems to be well cared for, and the ride takes... More

We heard that we will enjoy this ride, it was ok. The scenery is great. For a few euros you can have a nice ride that you will remember. In the port is nothing you can see. I believe if you're arriving with a cruise ship you'll be more astunned since you're not accustomed with Santorini's views.

If you want a good view of Santorini, go down to the harbour by cable car. The cars are smalish, the ride is about 2 minutes long.
