People are unwelcoming and don't help you AT all. The bus station itself us very disorganized, and to find your bus there is no other way than wait for the drivers shout announcements.

Bus was supposed to leave at 0935 according to schedule on internet, it did not. Next one was supposed to leave at 1000. A bus came at 0950 and left about immediately. That about either punctuality or the readability of ktel schedules. The driver saw...More

there's a cruise port that drops people at bottom of steps in fira, get cable car or donkeys up steps to fira. if it's one further down then only 15-20min. small island doesn't take long to get anywhere
