Private Half Day Bus Tour of Santorini's South 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!

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.
