Evening Transport!

We're staying in Kamari in early June and intend using the buses. If we fancy a night out in Fira, what time do the buses run till?

Also approximately how much would a taxi cost later at night?

They will run quite late, but maybe not as late as they do in high summer. Here's a link to the bus company, where you can see the current timetables. There may be more buses by the time you arrive - your hotel will be able to provide the most recent timetables.

Also, a link to the taxi company - be aware that taxis become scarce after midnight.

Unexpected turn of events: Clausar, one of the contributors over on the Fodor's Greece forum just informed me that the santorini-taxi.gr company is not the "official" taxi company on Santorini but is in fact a private service. Apparently the official taxis still use meters for their fares and don't charge quite as much as the one linked above. Clausar lives in Greece and called the real taxi company in Fira to verify.

Well, there's a turn-up and no mistake.

So, does the real "official" taxi company have a site or a price list that we can refer to when we're asked about it?

I know I've got two websites linked on my work computer for taxis. I think we just all thought one was an updated version of the 'official' company. Could explain the jump in fares on the 'new' website.

I'll take a look tomorrow to see if the earlier one corresponds to the phone number given in BBL's post.

If it does, I'll post it here (unless someone finds it in the meantime).

Struck out, I'm afraid.

Out of the two I had bookmarked, one was what we thought was the updated version (http://santorini-taxi.gr) and the other, which only has an email address - no phone number to check against the 'correct number' is:

Sorry.

Can anyone confirm the correct number or website for official taxi and the rate please? Looking to pre-book taxis for our wedding guests, just a short distance (5mins drive and we got a quote for 40 Euros per taxi which is ridiculous, and the same for airport pick up.
