Full description
Start with the breath-taking view at the Prophet Elias Monastery and visit the picturesque monastery. Next, discover Pyrgos village, one of the most picturesque villages on the island. Continue to Akrotiri Excavations, one of the most significant archaelogical sites in the area. Akrotiri is a vast structure, once inhabited by 200 families and preserved under the volcano’s lava. Then, you will have some free time (approx 40 minutes) at the Red Beach to simply enjoy the colorful formations of the mountains and/or visit Akrotiri Bay for coffee or lunch with Greek traditional mezedes and ouzo (not included in the price). Fira town comes next, the capital of the island where strolling around will give you the opportunity to take magnificent pictures of the Caldera. Shop or enjoy traditional Santorinian cuisine. The last stop is Oia village for the world’s most famous sunset.

    I love our guide - Vicky! She is cheerful, energetic, can easily put a smile on your face! She certainly knows her beloved island well. 10 hours sound long, but everything make sense. The schedule doesn't seem to be rush, although I would prefer to be able to spend a little more time in Pyrgos.

    The guide was a engerantic your lady who was now only friendly but knowlegdable of the island. She brought the group to many places that would have impossible for us to find in a single day. The driver was skillful on the twisting mountain roads. The views especially at sunset were remarkable

    I booked this full-day tour of Santorini for my boyfriend and I (now fiance!) as we only had one full day on the island - we were not disappointed. Vicky was our hospitable guide. It's hard to explain, but the best way that I can put it is that Vicky did such a great job at creating a real community for our tour group. Above and beyond all of the beautiful sights we were able to see in just one day, we also enjoyed the company. I can't recommend this your enough.
