Full description

Discover the highlights of Santorini on a private, half-day guided trip. Travel comfortably and stop at landmarks like Oia and the red-sand volcanic beach, and visit traditional villages and volcanic beaches. Ride through Pyrgos village, a traditional village with medieval features, to reach the mountaintop of Profitis Elias. From this vantage point, admire magnificent panoramic views of the whole island.

Next stop at Akrotiri village on the southwest coast. Apart from having some of the best views on the island, which reaches as far as Oia, it is also home to some of Santorini's jewels, such as the Akrotiri excavations, Akrotiri Venetian castle, Akrotiri Lighthouse, and Red Beach.

Continue to the south end of the Akrotiri peninsula, where one of the oldest lighthouses in Greece stands, and enjoy the sea view and the fresh ocean breeze. Then continue your trip to the north with a visit to the renowned village of Oia. On the way, make a short stop for a unique photographic moment at Firostefani’s famous blue dome church. Pick the afternoon tour to admire a Santorini sunset from the southernmost part of the island.

Our guide was prompt, helpful and well versed on Santorini's history, geology and other interesting facts about the island. The time flew by and we felt it was a great way to spend an afternoon at a new place on the cruise! Highly recommend this tour/guide!

We had Costas guide us around Santorini and had a wonderful time. He was excellent at taking us to the major points of interest and shared his knowledge of local influences and ways of life. He gave us free time and was flexible in arranging the tour to fit our interests. Would highly recommend this tour.

Thomas was our driver for the day and customized our tour for exactly what we wanted to do. He was a safe driver and provided tons of facts and interesting details along our drive. We stopped in several breathtaking places to take pictures. Some were off the beaten path and places that tourists haven't quite caught on to yet. Took this on our honeymoon trip and would definitely recommend it to others. Great job Thomas!
