Explore Santorini from its half-submerged volcanic caldera to the breathtaking views of Oia!

See the highlights of Santorini on an 5-hour private tour, and explore the island from its half-submerged volcanic caldera to the summit of its highest mountain! Learn about Santorini's volcanic history while visiting the caldera and Perissa, the black-sand beach. Then, travel through to the Holy monastery of Prophet Elias and sample local produce made by the resident monks. Try wine at a volcanic vineyard and then round off your day with free time in picturesque Oia village to enjoy the stunning views only Santorini can offer.

*** This Tour is designed for 2 up to 8 travelers and is READY TO BOOK. If you will be more that 8 guests, please contact me for a custom quote. ***


Starting from Santorini's Port(Fira town) or from your Hotel travel to the island's caldera for your first stop of the day to pose for pictures against the backdrop of the Aegean Sea.
Then continue to check out the dramatic-looking black-sand beach of Perissa - the longest black beach on the island.

Travel to the peak of Prophet Elias mountain, listen to the monks chanting, and savor samples of the dessert wine, honey and extra virgin olive oil that's made on-site.

Continue with an optional visit to a traditional Santorini winery where the local "Assyrtiko" wine is produced or visit a local family farm to sample the homemade volcanic treats.

From the countryside, continue to Oia -Santorini's iconic whitewashed village that's graced many a postcard. Take a stroll around the streets and enjoy some free time to sightsee and shop/dine at leisure!

A Recent Review of this tour

We loved our day with Dimitris. He's friendly, charming, interesting -- he had great stories about Santorini and the Cyclades, and helped us make the most of a "winter's" day in September. Great driver -- and you need that on a hilly island covered in switchbacks. The best, easiest and most interesting way to experience beautiful Santorini. Thank you, Dimitris.
