The guide was very attentive and adapted the itinerary to what was possible according to our needs. We depart from Melanichori and go to Oia for a 1.5 hour visit. It is necessary to take into account the long travel time between one village and another. He explained to us the places where we passed. We walked from Oia to the archaeological site of Akrotiri - therefore from one end to the other. We pass by Praia Preta and visit the highest point on the island, the Monks Convent. We visited the Akrotiri site which took longer because we decided to take a guided tour and time was up. Still he escorted us back to the hotel.
