Full-Day Santorini Sightseeing Bus tour with Sunset in Oia

Hop on an amazing bus tour around the island and jump at the opportunity to explore the most characteristic attractions and places of Santorini in one day! You will meander around its picturesque settlements where you’ll come across the typical cave houses, traditional whitewashed buildings, blue domed churches, Venetian castles and quaint alleys. A visit to the prominent archaeological site of Akrotiri will give you the chance to wander along a well-preserved prehistoric settlement, while a stop at Profitis Ilias Mountain, the highest peak of Santorini, will generously offer you stunning views.

Of course you’ll spend time at the must-see volcanic beaches of the island. You can swim and relax at the iconic Black Sand Beach and then have lunch at a traditional tavern of the coastal village where you can savor local specialties. You will also lay eyes on the most photographed scenery of Santorini, Red Beach, which stands out for the unique color of its sand and pebbles as well as its impressive lava cliffs. The experience wouldn’t be complete without a wine tasting in one of the numerous wineries of the island. Santorini is popular for its renowned wine varieties, which owe their quality to the rich volcanic soil, so it is an activity that shouldn’t be missed!

Santorini Winery

A visit to one of Santorini’s wineries is a must, especially if this winery provides striking views on the breathtaking caldera and volcano of the island. A tour to the winery will give you insight into the process and history of winemaking in Santorini. Get to try three different local varieties and indulge in a fine wine tasting experience in spectacular surroundings.

Santorini Sightseeing

Amazing tour! Felt like I was able to get a good sense of Santorini on our short stay. Our guide, Christina was wonderful and gave us great infos on histories about Santorini and since we had some extra time, she brought us to hidden place to capture breathing views. Our driver, Marko was an exceptional driver on the cliffs. Can’t believe how coach buses can maneuver on these small two way lanes. Overall, great tour and would highly recommend.

Fun day!

Christina did a great job as a tour guide. We loved the trip and learned a lot about Santorini. We prefer the history and learning about the locals instead of just sightseeing in the tourist locations. We found the cruise excellent and saw things and places we would have otherwise missed.
