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!

The journey begins from Fira and then we head to the island's highest point, where the Prophet Elias Monastery is perched at almost 2,000 feet (600 m), enjoy the scenic view of the island and take photos for about 15'. Then we head to the village of Pyrgos where we will take a stroll to see the blue-roofed churches, the caves and the Venetian Castle for many amazing photos for about 30'. Then we visit Santo Wines, a traditional Santorini winery, and grasp the opportunity to sample the local wine. Afterwards we head to Akrotiri, a traditional village of 150 people where the well-known Red Beach and the archaeological city are located (without the tour assistant). Then we head to Perissa, the most beautiful Black Beach in Europe and make a quick stop for some coffee. There our journey ends.

Very experienced and friendly guide

The guide/driver is super nice and we saw everything we wanted to see. The only reason didn’t rate a five star is because the car is old and the AC is horrible , A must do!

Amazing Experience With Excellent Guide

We booked a private tour for 8 people from Canada. Everything went according to plan from start to finish. Electra met us at the top of the cable car and guided us through beautiful Santorini with our driver. Vehicle was spacious and modern and comfortably sat all of us with seats to spare. The highlight for us was Santo Winery which was breathtaking. The 5 hours flew by, so we probably should have booked another hour so we could have had more time at the beach. Thank you so much SantoriniView and Marinakis Tours for making our trip memorable. I will definitely recommend you to my friends. Cheers!

I booked at the last minute with Santorini View who I found on Google and FB. I immediately received replies via FB messenger from the tour company who answered every question and was always quick to respond. We were slightly hesitant using a company that we had no dealings but what a brilliant find. We were fetched as arranged (we only booked that morning) by a very friendly person Nicko (or similar) who adjusted the tour according to our requests. He could speak and understand English very well and took us to all the tourism areas for a photo memories. He also advised on where not to stop on the tourist places and took us to the more reasonable prices restaurants, beach areas with beds etc. The company is honest, reliable and Ide definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a private tour. We were a group of 7., A great experience!
