Begin your private tour in Santorini with a pickup from your hotel or the closest accessible place, and then spend the day visiting the most famous island in the world with an expert local driver/guide.

Visit the renowned Oia in the north of the island first. Oia is a must-see destination in Europe and one of the most photographed locations due to its charming blue-domed churches and spectacular panoramic views.

Drive across rocky hills and sparse grassland as you approach the ancient city of Megalochori in the island’s center. Take pictures of the stunning tiered bell towers as you stroll the winding paths. This village is made up of hundreds of modest whitish cottages with delicate architecture, lovely blue-domed churches, and underground cave dwellings. Learn about local culture and lifestyle in this picturesque and non-touristic setting.

The most thrilling part is now here! Enjoy a wine tasting at a family-run winery with three centuries of winemaking.

Then, visit Santorini’s most well-known beach, Red Beach, a rare natural phenomenon, and take magnificent pictures of the reddish cliffs and volcanic surroundings.

Approach the Lighthouse from the southwest. It was constructed in 1892, is one of the best examples of its kind in the Cycladic Islands, and is a great place to watch the sun set.

Next, arrive at the southernmost end of the island after a ten-minute drive and unwind on Perivolos’ black beach, which has wonderful beachside restaurants and crystal blue waves. We can spend an hour relaxing here, so you can go swimming or eat lunch (not included) by the shore.

Lastly, travel across a vineyard-covered landscape to the island’s highest point, the monastery of Prophet Elias, which rises 565 meters above sea level. Take in the serene surroundings and the magnificent views of the entire island.

Your private tour of Santorini will come to a close with a drop-off at the location where we picked you up after an amazing experience.
