    This was truly a fantastic day sailing the Caldera. The pickup was on time and check-in was quick.

    Sip your way around Santorini on this private wine tour by visiting 3 traditional wineries spread out across the picturesque island.

Enjoy a private cellar tour at each of the wineries, and savor local snacks with wine as you admire the charming towns and rolling hills of Santorini.

    Excellent guide and driver, Apostolos. Visited 3 vineyards in 5 hours. Each served a generous plate of appetizers. The first winery, Hatzidskis, was the best. Stella gave an excellent tour and description of the wines - we tasted 6! Liked most of the wines and bought 3 bottles. From here, it gradually downhill. The next winery was Venetsanas and had a unique and interesting history. The tour was the best. The wine tasting was hurried. We liked the Vin Santo wine the best. The setting was beautiful, overlooking the port. The last and worst was visit was to Anhydrous. Tour very short and not particularly interesting nor did the young woman seem interested in what she was doing. We had three different servers and the information about the wine was limited as they too many tables to serve. No one ever explained how many tastings we would have and as they kept using the same glass, we weren’t sure when we were finished so we just left. Would not recommend this one at all.

  • Santorini: Caldera Cruise Including Buffet and Drinks

    Our family of four, including 15 and 18 year old teenagers, enjoyed the Caldera cruise and visit to the beaches. Cruise was relaxing, wife and daughter comfortably caught some sun, and photo shots were great from the boat. Food was good, fresh and delicious. Spaghetti was awesome. Crew were friendly and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the pick up and drop off. George, our driver, picked us up and provided good information about things to do and sights to see and general island history. On the return trip, he took us to a photo opportunity at one of those off the beaten path locations. Well done by Sunfos Alessia Yachting

    Simply spectacular. The private 7-hour cruise isn't cheap but was worth every dollar. We heard that Captain Anastasia is one of only two female captains in the Santorini catamaran fleet, and after riding with her, we have no doubt she has earned it and is one of the best. The cruise was beautiful, and she was an exceptional pilot and host. She consistently asked us what how we liked parts of the trip and adjusted her sailing to accommodate us. With the longer duration than most of the other cruises, the privacy of a cruise to ourselves, and an amazing set of sites, food, and the sunset, this was a highlight of our visit to Santorini. Highest recommendation, you will not regret the investment!

  • Santorini: 30 Minute Private Helicopter Flight

    8. Santorini: 30 Minute Private Helicopter Flight

    Soar above the picturesque landscapes of Santorini and the surrounding sea on an unforgettable helicopter trip over the island. Spot the volcanic formations of the caldera and the charming, whitewashed villages like Fira and Oia on a thrilling ride over the Aegean gem. Spend longer in the air checking out the caldera and Nea Kameni and see a selection of Santorini’s top beaches such as the red and black sand. Ogle the beach's red-tinged volcanic sand lapped by the sea and look out for hideaway coves and secluded bays. Hover over the north end of the island. Your aerial perspective provides a great vantage point to snap a photo or two of the distinctive sugar cube stacks of houses and blue-domed churches in the iconic Greek village of Oia. Fly back to the helipad, taking in a last glance over the rocky black cliffs rising up from the brilliant blue waters before you land.

    Absolutely incredible experience. You can’t beat the view of Santorini from the air. The process was extremely easy with our driver picking us up and driving us to the helicopter with no issues. The pilot was Roman who was extremely nice, helpful and professional. Took us on a beautiful flight and was extremely informative about the history and facts regarding the island. The views he was able to show us in the helicopter were incredible. I would recommend this activity to anyone traveling to Santorini.
