What You Can Expect

Santorini Full-Day Sightseeing Tour

AKROTIRI ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE

The adventures begin late morning with pickup near many island hotels. Head first to the renowned archaeological site of Akrotiri, considered the best-preserved Minoan ruins outside of Crete (entrance fees not included). Learn about the Bronze Age civilization that thrived here between 3000 and 1500 BC as you explore remnants of an ancient city preserved in ash from the eruption of Mt Thera.

Continue on to Perissa Beach, where you can swim and sun on the striking black sand and enjoy lunch nearby (own expense) during nearly 2 hours of leisure time. Next, get a glimpse of traditional Greek village life as you walk with your guide through the quaint and quiet streets of Megalochori. Climb back aboard the bus for a ride up to the 18th-century Prophet Elias Monastery, situated on the highest point of the island. Although the monastery itself is now closed to visitors, you can still admire sweeping views and snap photos from the church yard.

In the evening, relax over tastings of Santorini’s unique volcanic varietals and enjoy a picturesque view of terraced vineyards at Santo Wines, one of the island’s largest and most modern estates (tasting fee included). Finally, cap off the day with a visit to Oia village, considered one of the most photogenic places on Earth. Stroll through the narrow streets, browse local boutiques, and catch a spectacular sunset over the caldera before the 9-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at your departure point.

The tour is a great way to see the overview of Santorini starting from the South part Perisa beach, Akrotiri, etc until the North part Oia of the island. The tour guide Kathy was so knowledgeable, she knows everything about Santorini. She recommended us great restaurant for lunch where we can enjoy great food as well as great scenery of the Black Sand Beach. I highly recommended this tour if you want to enjoy the whole Santorini beauty in one day.

After spending the day touring this amazing island I wished I was spending a lot longer than the 3 days we did have there. The weather was perfect and the photo opportunities aplenty. Our wonderful guide took us on a walking tour, a gorgeous winery and it was lovely enjoying lunch on beautiful Perissa beach. I would go back to Santorini in a heartbeat!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

From pickup to drop-off the experience was lovely, the guides were very knowledgeable, and entertaining, no easy feat with such a large group of tourists. This tour is great if you want to check off a lot in one day, a little culture, history, swimming/beach time, best sunsets of your life, and local wine. I knew it was going to be a very on-the-go experience, but I didn't really feel rushed, and the trade off, of getting to see so much, was worth it. I would highly recommend this tour if your time is limited and you don't want to worry about logistics.
