Full description

Embark on a full-day guided tour of Santorini's highlights. Visit the iconic blue-domed churches of Oia, admire the views from Profitis Ilias, and relax on the shores of Perissa Beach before some well-deserved wine tasting.

After pickup from your hotel, board the luxury coach and drive to Profitis Ilias, the highest point on the island. Take in an incredible panorama of the entire island of Santorini, and the stunning deep blue color of the Aegean Sea while learning about the island´s fascinating volcanic history.

Wander around the courtyard of the 18th-century monastery that sits on top of the mountain. Then visit the Saint Nektarios chapel and enjoy the tranquility of your surroundings.

Continue to the village of Pyrgos, a hidden gem of Santorini. Wander through its winding alleys and immerse yourself in its traditional atmosphere. See typical houses, blue-domed churches, and quaint shops. Walk up to its imposing castle for beautiful vistas of the surrounding area.

The next stop is Emporio, where you will join a guided walk and visit the small Venetian fortress. Feel like you’re on the set of Mamma Mia as you discover the many doorways, windows, alleys, and arches of this picturesque medieval village.

Continue to Perissa Beach, also known as Black Beach. Here, there will be plenty of free time to go swimming in the sea or have lunch at one of the Greek tavernas facing the beach.

Take the opportunity to taste local Santorinian wine, one of the most famous products of the island. Learn about the winemaking process and enjoy a private wine tasting session of 3 wines made of local grape varieties.

In the early evening, arrive at the cliff-top village of Oia with its famous blue-domed churches. Embark on a guided walk from Saint George's Church in the most peaceful part of Oia. Learn about Oia´s glorious maritime past and admire elegant captains' mansions and cave-like houses along the way.

Once at the bustling castle area, enjoy some free time to take some photos, shop, or have a relaxing drink. Finally, watch an incredible sunset before meeting up with your guide opposite Platsani Church. Board the bus for a relaxing evening journey with drop-off back at your hotel.

Wow! What an AMAZING tour. Out of all of the things we did in Santorini, I HAVE to say that this tour is a must. You get SO much information about the island. You see so much of the island. Lilly is the absolute best. She is funny, personable, and incredibly knowledgeable. She will take pictures for you wherever you would like and has specific spots that she will make sure you get pictures at because they are stunning. It really gives you the perfect idea of the island because you get to see so much in one day. We decided to do this tour on the first day and it was a great idea. We got to see places that we knew we would like to come back to when we rented ATVs to explore the island by ourselves. And which places we were pretty sure we saw all there is to offer there. Lilly is the most amazing tour guide. Make sure you book this tour, it will absolutely not disappoint!

The trip was great, we got to see all the main spots and had time to wander around, and even to drink wine at one of the island's vineyards. Our guide (sadly her name has gone from my head) was excellent and she told us a lot about the history of the island, as well as some funny anecdotes. It was well worth the money.

The duo staff of Lily and the driver made this tour exceptional. My husband and I had never been to Santorini Island and this was a great overview. Lily speaks from her heart and takes great care of the group. It was an wonderful blend of local history, experiences of wine tasting and beach and ending the day with an Oia sunset.
