Make your own way from Santorini Port to the village of Fira, where your tour starts. Meet your private guide by the top of the cable car, and take a seat in your air-conditioned vehicle. Then, relax as you travel to the north coast, enjoying vistas of the Santorini caldera, wine estates and pretty island villages as you go.
Your journey takes you along the popular Fira to Oia route, a stretch of countryside that’s favored by hikers for its views. Stop at some of the most impressive vantage spots and pose for photos against a backdrop of sea and headland. If you’re itching to hike yourself, let your guide know. Your itinerary can be changed to let you to walk some of the route, if you wish.
Stop for more photos in Oia, a hill town that graces many a Santorini postcard, and then return to your vehicle for the journey south. Cruise through the old-school village of Pyrgos with its traditional architecture, and then stretch your legs on a visit to the Monastery of Profitis Ilias. The site sits at the island’s highest point, so have your camera ready for the views.
What happens next is up to you. Relax over a Greek lunch of gyro (tzatziki-dressed meat, sandwiched in a pita), or travel to a wine estate, high in the hills, for a wine tasting with your guide. Your shore excursion then concludes with the journey back to Fira.
