Full description
Uncover the fascinating past of Santorini on a 5-hour guided tour. Explore the excavations at Akrotiri, a prehistoric Bronze Age city. During the Minoan volcanic eruption some 3,600 years ago the city was frozen in time by volcanic ash. On this tour that’s priced for a group of up to 4 persons, you will admire the elaborate drainage system, the sophisticated multi-storied buildings, magnificent wall paintings, and excavated furniture and vessels. Discover evidence of winemaking that has been estimated to date back to the 3rd millennium BC, making Santorini one of the oldest wine-making regions in the world. Visit 3 of the island’s wineries and learn about Santorini’s unique viticulture traditions. Taste a selection of 12 different wine styles from across Santorini and Greece – including Assyrtiko, Nykteri, and the sublimely sweet Vinsanto wine.

I cannot recommend this tour or our tour guide, Mary, enough. The tour was the perfect balance of local history and culture, and delicious wine. Mary was so knowledgeable and passionate about Santorini; it made our day with her informative, engaging and incredibly fun. We had a fabulous day and would absolutely recommend you spend a day with Mary on your next trip to Santorini! (I will be back whenever she offers a Local Cats of Santorini tour :) )

Mary was wonderful!!!! she adjusted the tasting to the wines we liked. Perfect tour to see the wineries. Too bad the first part was on strike, but Mary had us visit a castle in her town which made up for the closed site. Great tour and would truly recommend it to anyone looking to visit the wineries and look at the overall island. Thanks so much!

Wonderful tour! Andrew was an excellent guide. Gave us great historical insight about the island and excellent info on the wines. We really enjoyed his company as well as our driver who went above and beyond to make an extra stop to personally buy us some Baklava when I mentioned my husband had been really wanting some. An overall excellent experience with wonderful people!
