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!
