The easiest and most relaxed way of exploring the beautiful island of Santorini is a Private Minibus tour! You will have the chance to visit the most precious parts of the island with your family or friends and admire the extraordinary scenery while getting useful information from an experienced driver-guide

After convenient pick up from your hotel, get ready to meet all the prominent sights of Santorini, along with its traditional villages and extraordinary beaches in a 5-hour bus tour that will fascinate you!

Start your tour with a visit to the graphic village of Oia, on the northern part of the island, and get to wander on the narrow streets of this amazing settlement. Find yourself walking among the white-washed cave houses, built on the side of the Caldera cliffs and capture nice photos of the famous Blue-domed churches, while admiring the stunning view of the impressive Volcano of Santorini, or stroll around the marble streets and explore the nice small shops, restaurants and cafes. Visit Firostefani village, another village that is built on the top of the huge cliffs, and get the chance to photograph more of the famous Blue-Domed churches, as well as set eyes on the wild Caldera landscape and the Aegean Sea, before continuing your tour to the south part of the island.

Drive through the traditional village of Pyrgos and reach the highest point of Santorini, the top of Prophet Elias Mountain and the Monastery there. It’s the best spot to catch panoramic views of the whole island and the sea. Continue your tour to Akrotiri village, where you will have the chance to visit the Akrotiri Excavations site, a well-preserved prehistoric settlement (entrance fees and a site-guided tour are not included). Alternatively, set eyes on the reddish cliffs surrounding the extraordinary Red Beach and its crystal-clear waters, and take amazing photos.

Let your driver take you to the very south end of Akrotiri, where the oldest lighthouse in Greece, the Venetian Lighthouse, is settled. Marvel at the dazzling sea view and the view of the island from a different perspective while feeling the light sea breeze on your face. Next, you can choose to visit the famous black beach of Perissa and take some time to have lunch, take a refreshing swim or just relax admiring the black volcanic scenery. Add a last visit to a winery and get the chance to taste the famous Santorini wines (optional wine tasting to be paid on the spot).

Choose an afternoon tour and witness the stunning Sunset of Santorini, at one of the most scenic spots on the island, Oia village or the Akrotiri Lighthouse! Feel free to customize your tour with your driver or leave it to the experts! Either way, you will engage in an experience that you will enjoy to the fullest!

Wander around the most beautiful sites and attractions of the island with luxury and convenience, and make your trip to Santorini something to remember for years to come!

BEST. TOUR. EVER.

this tour literally made our entire trip. it was our last day in Santorini and we decided to get a private tour to see any sites we might of missed and oh my god it was the best decision we ever made. Thomas was our tour guide and he was so nice and funny! as well as super knowledgeable about the island history. I learned so much from him! We even got the see the best tourist spots before it was busy. he knew the exact right times to go so we could see a location without getting lost in tourist traffic. the tour was incredibly well organized too. Thomas knew exactly how long we would spend at each location and the 5 hours went by in a flash. This tour is an absolute must, and if you can, i highly suggest requesting thomas as your tour guide!

The only way to experience Santorini

I would like to begin by telling you BRAVO FOR AN EXCELLENT TOUR AND SERVICE. We were a group of 13 which included an 8yr old. We promptly met KOSTAS BOUMIS at the tram and we’re lead to a nice air conditioned bus stocked with water. Kostas greeted us and informed the group what to expect on our tour of Santorini. Kostas was a plethora of knowledge. We learned the real name of Santorini is Thera and of course how to properly say Oia. Thought out the drive Kostas gave us the history of Thera and 300 year old active volcano. He taught us about the grapes in Thera and how they are protected but also showed us the baskets that are formed underneath the grape vine. The drive to both the red sand volcanic beach and the black sand beach was impressive. Our tour took place during the summer and it was ZESTY hot in Greek. A couple of our family members had the option to stay in the cool bus during some of the short stops. That was pleasant. Our second to last stop was at the black sand beach but first a delicious lunch filled with Greek specialties and fish of the day. We sat beach view. The service, the view, and the food were spectacular. Kostas recommended a locally owned restaurant. There is more to Santorini than the photos posted on Instagram. If you want to really enjoy what Thera is about take this tour and ask for Kostas Bounis!

Excellent private tour of the island

Our guide and driver, Zafiris, was awesome! This was a day excursion during our cruise ship stop. Our family of 4 (2 teenagers) did the afternoon tour (starting at 2pm) to avoid the morning rush and long queues at the cable car. Our guide met us right on time at the cable car exit. We stopped at multiple stops from one end of the island ,Oia, to the other end, the Lighthouse. We had time to wander around in Oia, and had short stops at multiple sites for stunning photo-ops. Nice restaurant recommendation for lunch. Zafiris was very personable and knowledgeable, and was able to customize the tour to our requests. Would definitely recommend this tour to see the island!
