Santorini: Private 4-Hour Cultural Villages Sightseeing Tour

3. Santorini: Private 4-Hour Cultural Villages Sightseeing Tour

Following a convenient pickup from your starting point on the island, start your private tour by heading to the village of Pyrgos, known as the island’s historic monument. Built on the top of a hill, this settlement is home to an 18th-century Venetian castle.

The town is surrounded by vineyards, chapels, churches, narrow cave houses with charming balconies, and pebbled paths.

What people are saying about Emporio

Brilliant value for money however the air conditioning in the coach wasn’t working very well and we had a packed bus which made the journey on the way home unpleasant but through the day it wasn’t full we just picked up more passengers to drop off on the way home which took us off the usual route - the wine tasting is just a gesture but fun ….. there aren’t any ‘ rest ‘stops so don’t drink too much before or plan when your in perissa or at the wine museum as there really isn’t anywhere else on the tour the guide was tentative to some but not all in the party so we stayed at the back to make sure the others were ok - for us it was just a tool to get around and definitely worth it but how your supposed to get changed and dry for the swim half way through? Luckily for us our hotel was in perissa so we made use of the facilities but don’t let me put you off it’s worth a day out

The guide was very knowledgeable and told lots of stories about the island. Santorini is a great place for just relaxing on the beach, but if you want to soak in more than just the sun, this tour is perfect for getting to know the area.

Our tour guide Lily was very knowledgeable, welcoming and made the overall experience great. She made a group of strangers feel at home, laugh and have a good time whilst seeing the sights of Santorini.

Excellent organization of the trip. A well-organized shuttle service to the collection point. Interesting presentation of information

It was a great experience, you’ll enjoy it and will learn lot of things about Santorini.
