Oia is one of the most beautiful towns in Greece. If we mix them together we have a great tour, which balances between History and fun.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our guide Spiros is an eminent archaeologist who has worked on the ancient site of Akrotiri. His description of the archaeology and his presentation of digital images as we walked around was superior to any guiding we have had on our cruise around the Mediterranean. We came away with a vivid picture of what life might have been like in the ancient town. Spiros also toured the whole island describing the way of life here. I highly recommend Spiros as the guide for Akrotiri and Santori. Judith M.
