Full description
After being collected from your accommodation you will make your way to the archaeological museum and ancient excavations in Akrotiri. There you will learn about life before and after the Santorini volcano eruption on the island of Thira. Following that you will experience the popular Red Beach, where you'll have enough time for swimming and relaxing, and can enjoy the mesmerizing view of the divine landscape. A few meters below there is the different landscape of Black Beach, where you can swim some more and take photos. Pyrgos is your next stop. Its paved and narrow pathways hidden between many old traditional stone houses give you the sense that you are walking in an ancient town labyrinth. This village is located at the highest point of the island and just a few meters below the Monastery of Prophet Elias, which has been standing since 1711. Next, experience wine tasting in an area where the unique grapes have been voted many times as one of the better varieties from around the world. You will have the opportunity to taste some of the most exquisite and tasteful wine flavors such as Visanto, Nychteri, and Assyrtiko. The traditional settlement of Firostefani is your next tour stop, where you can admire the magnificent views of the breathtaking caldera of Santorini. You'll also have the opportunity to see the famous and frequently photographed “Blue Dome”, the old orthodox church covered by a blue dome. Your final stop is the cosmopolitan village of Oia, which is located on the northern edge of the island. Walking over the paved paths in this pure blue and white village is an extremely unique experience, and is bound to provide you with many photographic opportunities. At the conclusion of your experience, you will be driven back to your hotel in Santorini.

Our tour guide was absolutely wonderful! We had a few days in Santorini before our tour which we spent at the beaches. Our guide modified our plans because of that and rather than take us to places we had already seen he took us to a few extra places off the normal route! He was so very generous with his time and accommodations. I highly recommend this tour.

Driver did not seem to have a set itinerary and kept asking us where we wanted to go. We did not go To Akrotiri, the Red Beach or Monastery. Barely any explanation was given about any of the places we did visit and most of the time the driver spent his driving time talking no stop on his phone or even text messaging which made the drive quite dangerous. We did stop at the black beach for a short swim but he was very rude and made lots of issues about some of us changing in the back of the van (no naked bodies or part were shown). Mostly removing shirts or changing from shoes to flip flops etc. Started yelling at us and was very aggressive. He Made even more of a deal about checking if any of us was even remotely wet (well you do get wet when you go swimming). The stop for swimming was very short and we were hurried back because he had apparently another tour which made it even harder. Overall we did not think it was a great tour and do not recommend it.
