Full description

Wander through the white cobblestone streets of Santorini’s capital, Fira, for a guided tour that will feature jewelry shops, donkey roads, a scenic cable car ride, and wine tasting. Begin your tour in front of Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral, which sits atop a cliff and offers breathtaking views. Explore the old town with your guide, admiring the beautiful jewelry in shop windows as you stroll down Gold Street. Walk along part of Santorini’s famous donkey roads, once used by the locals to transport goods and reach other parts of the island. Take in the panoramic views during a 5-minute ride in an aerial lift from the top of the volcanic caldera down to a small picturesque port. Get an up-close look at the edge of the caldera as you make your way toward the renowned blue domed church in Firostefani. At the end of the tour, get introduced to Pelican Kipos, located in the heart of Fira, where there is a unique wine cellar with renowned as well as rare local wines and other alcoholic beverages, collected from all over the world. Should you wish to have a wine tasting experience, it can be arranged on the spot.

We were surprised To find out that no other people joined our tour, so it was great to have a private tour! We learned quite a lot about the history of the churches, life in Santorini and the cable car ride provided stunning views of Fira! Just a tip to book this tour fairly early upon arrival so you could take full advantage of all the information! Roseli was a knowledgeable and personable tour guide and we appreciated! Highly recommend !!

Great great view definitely worth the walk down the stairs. The cable car ride is recommended to really appreciate the panorama. The discovery on foot from Fira to Firostefani is also enriching with the explanations of Myrna, a guide to recommend. Benevolent and solar like this beautiful island.
