Full description

Santorini is quintessential Greece. Discover the draw-dropping scenery, see old Greek ladies strolling along cobbled lanes, and satisfy your palate by tasting local wines on this all-encompassing tour. Yia Mas!

After pickup from your hotel, board the luxury coach and drive to Profitis Ilias, the highest point on the island. Take in an incredible panorama of the entire island of Santorini, and the stunning deep blue color of the Aegean Sea while learning about the island´s fascinating volcanic history.

Wander around the courtyard of the 18th-century monastery that sits on top of the mountain. Then visit the Saint Nektarios chapel and enjoy the tranquility of your surroundings.

Continue to the village of Pyrgos, a hidden gem of Santorini. Wander through its winding alleys and immerse yourself in its traditional atmosphere. See typical houses, blue-domed churches, and quaint shops. Walk up to its imposing castle for beautiful vistas of the surrounding area.

The next stop is Emporio, where you will join a guided walk and visit the small Venetian fortress. Feel like you’re on the set of Mamma Mia as you discover the many doorways, windows, alleys, and arches of this picturesque medieval village.

Continue to Perissa Beach, also known as Black Beach. Here, there will be plenty of free time to go swimming in the sea or have lunch at one of the Greek tavernas facing the beach.

Take the opportunity to taste local Santorinian wine, one of the most famous products of the island. Learn about the winemaking process and enjoy a private wine tasting session of 3 wines made of local grape varieties.

In the early evening, arrive at the cliff-top village of Oia with its famous blue-domed churches. Embark on a guided walk from Saint George's Church in the most peaceful part of Oia. Learn about Oia´s glorious maritime past and admire elegant captains' mansions and cave-like houses along the way.

Once at the bustling castle area, enjoy some free time to take some photos, shop, or have a relaxing drink. Finally, watch an incredible sunset before meeting up with your guide opposite Platsani Church. Board the bus for a relaxing evening journey with drop-off back at your hotel.

Lena was an amazing tour guide! Just the right amount of information about the island and its history and a brilliant knowledge of the best spots to see in each location. The order of the sights was rearranged so that we avoided the crowds which was great as we were alone in most locations. The only constructive feedback is for the tour company who could improve their communications before the tour - we didn't hear from the tour company about our pick-up location/time until late the night before despite calling and sending multiple chasers which was unnecessarily stressful.

We thoroughly enjoyed the highlights tour, it was a great way to see lots of places in Santorini without hiring our own transport, and you learn so much too. Our guide Lena was fantastic - her passion for history and the island shines through. She was full of funny stories and interesting facts, and we learned so much from her. Our driver Georgios was lovely too, and made sure we got back to our hotel safely. The coach was a very comfortable way to travel, and the aircon and water were very welcome when returning from being out in the sun. We thought it was great value for money, especially as it includes the wine tasting and visit to the winery museum. We would thoroughly recommend!

Lena was a fantastic guide. The trip was great value for money, giving you a great way to see many parts of the island you might not be able to get to on your own. Great mix of small local Villages, wine tasting, the beach and Oia. Would recommend if looking for one excursion to cover off many.
