Full-Day Cultural Sightseeing Bus Tour of Santorini with photo-stop at Caldera and Sunset in Oia

Our tour starts at the most prominent landmark of Santorini, the archaeological site of Akrotiri. You will walk around a well-preserved prehistoric city, which was covered in volcanic ash after the tremendous volcanic eruption that hit the island, along with a Licensed English speaking guide. Entrance fee (€12/person) is not included in the price. Our next stop is at Caldera of Santorini where you’ll enjoy the amazing views of the Volcano of Santorini, Thirassia and Aspronisi islands. Then you will be transferred to Perissa Beach, the famous black sand volcanic beaches of the island, where you can relax by the sea, swim and have lunch (meal is not included). After that, we proceed to the highest place of the island, Profitis Ilias Mount, for a short photo stop (20 minutes). We’ll drive through Pyrgos village and arrive at Profitis Ilias Monastery, which is built on the summit of Profitis Ilias Mount and offers stunning panoramic views. Next, you’ll visit the Wine Museum and Winery in Kamari village which is a must, as Santorini is known for its wine varieties and boasts a long wine tradition. A tour of the winery and the museum, as well as a wine tasting of three local wines, constitutes a unique experience. Our final stop is, of course, the picturesque village of Oia the gem of Santorini. Here you’ll have time to wander around its quaint alleys and, above all, admire the well-known sunset from the northwest edge of the island ‒ a sight that millions of people wish to relish and flock to the settlement every summer for this purpose.

Must do Tour

This was an excellent tour. Our guide was amazing and extremely knowledgeable. I felt like I saw everything I needed to see in Santorini and really enjoyed that nothing felt rushed. We had just enough time to explore and try new things. Including eating and drinking. It was a wonderful experience. Highly recommend doing this tour!

Amazing Santorini tour with Oia Sunset

We were there in Santorini for a day only so opted for this tour. It was way beyond our expectations. Comfortable clean bus with excellent guide and driver too. From start till end it was well organised. Guide was very knowledgable and full of humour too. Really enjoyed the tour more because of her. Akrotiri excavations were very nicely explained by her.Oia sunset was amazing. Wine tasting experience was not so good. Waste of time there. We were dropped at the airport well in time for our flight back to Athens., Excellent!

Complete & Informative Tour Around the Island

We had a comprehensive tour around the island which took us to all the places we wanted to see, all without having to rent a car and deal with parking. Our guide's knowledge of the Akrotiri ruins made that portion of the tour exceptionally fascinating., A great experience!, Excellent!, Our guide was awesome!

Best day tour in Santorini

Definitely recommend. We stayed in Oia and they made arrangements to be picked up from Oia and drop us back at Oia. The inside tour at Akrotiri was with the same guide but had to pay separately. The kids under 18 are free. They take you to Kamari beach where we can have lunch, they recommend you the restaurant which is great but you've plenty of other options as well. The restaurants are very reasonably priced and you've an option of taking the lunch by the beach side. The only thing is... its too windy. Another thing we enjoyed was the wine tasting tour, one of the best places on the island and top 10 places for best wines in the world...I would recommend taking this tour on the first day, that way you know the entire island and then the next day we went to the places we wanted to visit... Take the caldera boat tour on the next day that will take you to the volcanic mountain and if you like trekking and hiking, they take you all the way to the top of the volcanic mountain and check out the craters (it's an active volcanic site, the last eruption was in the 1940s). , A great experience!, Excellent!, A great experience!, A must do., Our guide was awesome!

Thank you very much for your review. We are more than happy to know that you enjoy our tour. I just want to clarify that you went at Perissa beach. Kamari beach is seen from prophet Elias Mountain. Our goal is to enjoy every minute of our tours on the island and to offer you a unique experience.
