Full description
Start your Santorini adventure by meeting your friendly guide at your accommodation in Santorini, or at the meeting point near the cruise ship arrivals terminal. After a quick meet and greet with your driver you will hop inside a fully air-conditioned, comfortable vehicle and set off on your journey.  Begin your day of exploration with a visit to one of the island's most popular and beautiful villages, Oia. Stroll through narrow passageways, enjoy a spot of shopping in the village's fashion streets, discover the castle of Oia and let yourself be seduced by the breathtaking view. Leaving Oia, your next stop will be Firostefani and Imerovigli, two beautiful villages connected to each other. From here you will have incredible panoramic views of the volcano, the rock of Skaros and the amazing blue dome. Take a stop at a traditional winery to taste or purchase some of Santorini’s wines, widely known around the world for their freshness and distinctive taste. End your day with a visit to the highest point of Santorini, the mountain of prophet Elias. Keep in mind that as the tour is private the itinerary is completely flexible and can be customized to match your interests in the best way. The tour ends by getting dropped off at your initial point of pick-up, alternatively, a different location can be arranged.

Gregory was a terrific tour guide. We really enjoyed everything he showed us (and we saw a lot that day) and he was VERY knowledgeable and informative, handling every question we had with ease. Such a gentleman as well. This tour was the best thing we did on Santorini. Very worthwhile.

Grigoris was an excellent guide. A very knowledgeable, friendly and professional individual who was ready to go out of his way to keep us happy. Since the tour was private we had the chance to customise the itinerary in any way we liked. Overall this was an excellent tour, well worth its money. I would highly recommend both Grigoris and the tour!

Great tour of the island, loads of information as we drove round, great places to stop and take photos, and Grigoris got us all water after a bit of a climb on a hot day. Wine museum was great too. Well worth every penny and I’d recommend to anyone.
