Private Half Day Bus Tour of Santorini's North Side

Discover the charm, wonder and history of Santorini, one of the top destinations in the world, with Marinakis Tours. Let Marinakis Tours, which was founded in 2000, assist you in the most beautiful Santorini experience. Our staff can offer all the essentials of the perfect holiday: exceptional value for money, destination knowledge and attention to detail. The agency generously provides pick up from and to your cruise ship, the airport or your hotel. Let's get started!

Your tour begins with a stop at the island's iconic caldera, a striking viewpoint. Enjoy views of staggered cliffs and rock layers dotted with whitewashed houses and blue domes. Then we head to Firostefani for a quick 15' stop, a traditional village filled with many tiny churches, for more insight into the island's history. We gaze the volcano ahead of us, Imerovigli and Oia. The journey continues to Imerovigli where we can see and take pictures of the caves, the place where the old inhabitants of the island used to live. Then, we head to the edge of Imerovigli to see the well-known Skaros, an UNESCO protected mountain that really floats in the air and take pictures of the region. On the way to Oia, we can witness red, black and yellow volcanic lava on the left side of the mini bus. On the right side we see the Caldera and the Aegean Sea and the second volcano of the island, Columbo, which is underwater. Our tour ends at Oia, where we see many old, blue-roofed traditional churches, old houses, traditional coffee shops, boutiques and art galleries and you get the chance to try a bite of the traditional Greek baklava as you drink your coffee. We head to the old Venetian Castle which is located on the edge of the island to admire the beautiful view of Oia and take some time to visit the local shops (optional choice). Then we head back to your hotel or other destination of your choice.

Great time in Santorini

We had a great time and tour of Santorini sights with our guide Nikolas, who personalized the wonderful experience for our group of four ladies every step of the way. He is knowledgeable and accommodating, and ensured we got from place to place safely. We were very pleased with all the insider information he shared about his island, and were delighted to have him join us for lunch and wine tasting. He managed to manuever around the more crowed places with ease, and gave us first-hand insider views of the highlights of the island. All in all, we would highly recommend Nikolas and his tour! , A great experience!, Well organized!, Wonderful experience!, Our guide was awesome!, Wonderful experience!
