Our 5 hours tour, includes Firostefani, Oia, Profitis Ilias, Black Beach and the excavation site of Akrotiri.
Apart from taking you to the best spots only the locals know, our guide will share with you his intimate knowledge of the history, culture and customs of Santorini.
We start by picking you up from the location of your choice.
Our first stop is Firostefani, a place well known for the famous blue dome church where you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the volcanic caldera.
On our way to Oia, we make a stop to enjoy a remote view of the characteristic architecture of the famous village with its typical white houses built in the volcanic stone.
Oia is a top destination for the visitors of Santorini and our guide will take you to the best spots of the picturesque village. We will visit the old Venetian castle, and perhaps be able to explore its interior (this depends on the guard’s availability). You will also have free time to stroll around the town and enjoy refreshments by the caldera.
At an altitude of 560 meters, Profitis Ilias offers a unique 360° panoramic view of the island and is the ideal spot to take amazing photos. We will visit the 300 years old Monastery at the site and taste some of the local delicacies and hand made products made there.
A unique beach with black volcanic sand where you can swim, enjoy water sports, or have a delicious lunch overlooking the Aegean Sea.
Located on the southern edge of the island, the impressive Bronze Age site of Akrotiri is also known as the “prehistoric Pompeii”.
In Akrotiri you get to understand the tremendous effect the volcanic eruption of the 17th century BC had on the island. Excavations have revealed that prehistoric Akrotiri was a very sophisticated society.
We explore the ancient city that was frozen in time because of the volcanic eruption, walk through its stone paved streets and squares where two- and three-story houses were built with worked stone and richly decorated with figural wall paintings.
Please note at the Akrotiri archaeological site, guided tours can be offered only by licensed guides for a fee.
