7. Santorini: Private Full Day Sunset Tour with Dinner
Explore Santorini with a full-day tour from Fira, including a private guide, round-trip transportation in an air-conditioned SUV, a visit to Art Space, and dinner with sunset views. Learn about the island's history and culture while visiting Imerovigli, Exo Gonia, Emporio, Red Beach, and more.
Begin your tour with SUV transportation from Fira to Imerovigli. Listen as your private guide describes the geological formation of Santorini's unique volcanic landscape. Stop at Monolithos Beach to sink your feet into the black sand and feast your eyes on a panoramic view.
Continue to Exo Gonia, a quiet village that's home to the 18th-century Agios Charalambos Church. Explore the 19th-century Art Space gallery and winery, which displays contemporary Greek paintings and sculptures in a former wine cave. Wander next door to local vineyards for a tour or tasting.
The next stop is the lively village of Emporio in the southern region of Santorini. Wander its narrow alleyways to a 15th-century Venetian Castle and then continue to the Akrotiri Lighthouse, one of the oldest lighthouses in Greece. Take a photo or enjoy the views of the endless blue Aegean Sea.
Make a short stop at the Red Beach to take a photo of its iconic, red sand before driving to dinner at a family-run tavern. Popular with the locals, the tavern is located right on the water, offering specialty dishes like Santorinian salads, fresh fish, and tomatokeftedes (a fried tomato appetizer).
After dinner, visit a secret location known as the "Heart of Santorini" to watch the evening sunset. Enjoy a bottle of local wine as the sun sinks into the sea and turns the sky deep shades of red, orange, and blue. Conclude your day trip by returning to the SUV and driving back to Fira.
