Tour Description

Our first stop will be the village of Oia, the most famous village of Santorini on the north side of the island. At this unique place, visitors can admire the historical houses which have been built in niches inside the volcanic bedrock and the blue-roofed churches. Moreover, the adorable views from this location will make you feel relaxed and will give you the chance to take the first photos for your album.

Next stop on our tour-schedule is the village of Firostefani, the "crown of Fira", which owes its name to its elevated position. The stunning views of Fira and the volcano from the village will stay in your memory for good. We will go on for a photo shooting visit of the famous Blue Domed Church, an iconic church that has adorned the cover of so many guidebooks of Santorini.

Another unforgettable experience is awaiting at Profitis Ilias, once we reach the summit of Mountain Profitis Ilias (Prophet Elijah), the highest point of Santorini at an altitude of 600 meters above sea level. Here, we will explore the area of the homonymous historical monastery and take more photographs of the panoramic view from this amazing vantage point.

The village of Pyrgos, which is located at the foot of Mountain Profitis Ilias, will be the first traditional village of our tour. This place offers us trademark panoramic views of both sides of Santorini, while it retains features of the Venetian rule. Moreover, the traditional Cycladic houses and pathways placed all around the old Venetian castle make Pyrgos Village a place not to be missed.

We continue our tour to the village named Megalochori, which has been characterized as one of the most picturesque and traditional villages of the island. Historical mansions, restored houses and pirate hideaways are the top preserved features of this settlement.

Furthermore, a stop that must not be excluded from the full day private tour is Akrotiri Archaeological Site. This specific site is one of the most significant prehistoric settlements of the Aegean. Please notice that Akrotiri had once been a major city before it was covered in ash by volcanic eruptions. Luckily, the ash has preserved structures and their contents, allowing us to admire this wonder of antiquity.

Afterwards, our driver - guide will be pleased to take you to the unique Red Beach just to get a glimpse of the red volcanic rocks. These rocks were created by geological formation processes that are still active.

On our way to the next village named Emporio, you will have the chance to look at numerous windmills nearby the fields. It is necessary to visit Emporio, which was the center of commercial activity, so as to enrich our knowledge of the local history. This is the largest settlement of the island with a definite medieval flavor and well-preserved traditional houses. Walking through the narrow streets of the village, we will encounter the best-preserved castle on Santorini – Emporio Kastelli as well as churches and other historical sites.

At this point of our tour it will be our pleasure to take you for a swim at the dazzling crystal clear waters of the famous Black Beach (also known as Perissa) if you wish. This seaside area actually forms the tip of the long black sand beach of Perivolos and is, without a doubt, the busiest and most remarkable beach of Santorini.

After our long journey through the extraordinary places of the island, the final scheduled stop takes us to the Venetsanos Winery. Feel free to taste and enjoy the famous local wine varieties of Santorini.

* Please note that the above sample itinerary may be instantly tailored according to your preferences and needs in order to include or exclude additional stops as long as the total duration of our tour remains up to 5 hours. As an alternative, we may also extend your tour-schedule.

So whether you have something in mind or would like your driver - guide to take the lead and make recommendations, feel free to make a request – Your wish is our command!!

** Please keep in mind that anytime you feel hungry there will always be a place in the course of our tour to grab a snack. Otherwise, our tour may incorporate a lunch break at a local restaurant, off the main towns of Santorini, to taste and experience the traditional food.
