Full description

The first stop on your private tour is to take in views of the Santorini Caldera and hear commentary from your guide on its formation. This 6-hour tour is priced for a group of up to 4 people.

Continue through scenic countryside to the village of Oia, the most photographed location in Santorini. You’ll also visit the village of Imerovigli, situated on a higher cliff with an incredible view.

Make a short stop in Firostefani to see the famous Blue Dome Church, the subject of so many Santorini postcards. Continue to the peak of Prophet Ilias, the island’s highest mountain, standing 2,000 feet above sea level.

Next on the itinerary is a visit to the village of Pyrgos, the old capital. Take a guided walk along narrow paths to the ruins of the Venetian castle. Explore the Akrotiri excavations – the site of a prehistoric Bronze Age city that was frozen in time by ash from the Minoan volcanic eruption.

Admire the Red and Black beaches. Enjoy an optional lunch at a seaside restaurant before visiting the Venetsanos Winery, where you’ll learn the secrets of wine making and enjoy the tastes of fine local wines.
