Full description
This 6-hour tour is priced for a group of up to 4 people, and the itinerary is flexible, with various optional stops. The first stop on your private tour is to take in views of the Santorini Caldera and hear commentary from your guide on its formation. 

Continue through scenic countryside to the village of Oia, the most photographed location in Santorini. You’ll also visit the village of Imerovigli, situated on a higher cliff with an incredible view.

Make a short stop in Firostefani to see the famous Blue Dome Church, the subject of so many Santorini postcards. Continue to the peak of Prophet Ilias, the island’s highest mountain, standing 2,000 feet above sea level.

Next on the itinerary is a visit to the village of Megalochori or Pyrgos. Take a guided walk along narrow paths, so you can see how the locals live. You can then take an optional stop at Akrotiri Archaeological Site if you want to explore the excavations: the site of a prehistoric Bronze Age city that was frozen in time by ash from the Minoan volcanic eruption. You will explore the ruins on your own as your guide is not permitted inside (admission fees are also at own expense).

Take time to admire the Red and Black beaches on this tour, as well as an optional winery visit to Estate Argyros or Venetsanos Winery, where you can taste local wine and enjoy caldera with a view from the top of the winery.
