After pickup from your hotel, board the luxury coach and drive to Profitis Ilias, the highest point on the island. Take in an incredible panorama of the entire island of Santorini, and the stunning deep blue color of the Aegean Sea while learning about the island´s fascinating volcanic history.

What people are saying about Perissa

Lilly was an interesting storyteller and a competent tour guide. We were allowed to discover many different places. We felt very comfortable throughout the day. Jorgos the driver was very personable and drove us safely to every destination. The wine tasting was very good, we were able to try 2 white wines, 1 red wine and a dessert wine. Transportation (pick up and drop off) close to the property was convenient. We found Oia a bit overrated. It had a lot of people and the sunset in Fira was more impressive.

Super guided tour, it's really worth it! I can just recommend her. Pick up on time, bus air-conditioned, a great, humorous and attentive guide lady (Niki) told a lot about Santorini (historical-current-cultural). All program items were interesting and everything was really well explained and organized! The wines were delicious, the little villages delightful. Oia (Ia) was pretty crowded but be prepared for that as it is so touristy. Still beautiful.

The tour was fantastic. It was so nice learning about the history of the island and seeing some really beautiful and unique villages that we wouldn't have otherwise. I taste of real Santorini away from all the tourists for some of the stops was excellent!

Very well organized and knowledgeable guide, highly recommended, covered a lot of places in a day.
