THE PRIVATE TOURS BOOKING PROCESS
You can book your preferred private tour following the easy booking method. The link will show you all the details about your private tour (duration of the tour, highlights spots, what does the price include, extra charges for special options, the payment method and the cancellation policy).
We strongly advise you to book your private tour in advance; especially during peak summer season (July-September). Once your booking has been made, a vehicle is reserved and availability is guaranteed. Last minute tour bookings, however, can be accommodated if the suitable vehicle is available.
Your iGoGuide will come on time to pick you up at your desired destination.
- Cruise passenger pick-up: All cruise passengers with individual programs are taken to the old Port of Fira, by tender boats. From the port, you will take the cable car up to Fira town. The journey with a cable car takes 2-3 minutes and costs €6. Approximate start of the tour should be 90 minutes after the scheduled arrival of the cruise ship.The meeting point for the tour is at the cable car’s exit in Fira town. Your driver – guide will wait for you there, holding a sign with your name. Please include the name and arrival time of your ship, and full name and mobile phone number when booking of the tour in order for your pick-up to be arranged.
- Hotel pick-up: Your driver – guide will meet you at the hotel entrance door.
Your iGoGuide will at all times be informed about your cruise ship details and will collect you at the new time, without any extra costs. It is very important to fill in the name of your cruise ship in the reservation form so we can be informed in case of delay.
There are several possibilities why your card number has been declined:
- Expiry date of the card is set before the date of booking.
- You have reached your credit limit.
