What You Can Expect

Santorini Full-Day Sightseeing Tour


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.

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.

The tour was amazing. We got picked up right in front of our hotel , Majestic, which was super easy. The whole day was a beautiful and informational experience. The wine tasting towards the end was a nice little treat and breathtaking views of Santorini. The tour guide was just a joy. LOVED IT!

Glad we went on this tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and more than anything else, he took pride in his work which was reflecting in his words. The best part for all of us in our family was the Akritori Excavations ! Must do if you are in Santorini.
