Overview
Specially designed for first-time visitors, this private tour offers a customized intro to the island’s history and culture. See the photogenic clifftop houses of Oia village, swim at a black sand beach, visit a mountain monastery, and taste volcanic wine. It's a great way to get off the beaten track and make the most of a short visit to one of the most beautiful Greek islands.
What to Expect
Begin with pickup at your Santorini accommodation and head first to a clifftop lookout point for incredible views into the sunken caldera, where are you'll learn about the island’s volcanic formation. See the much-photographed whitewashed houses, castle, and cave dwellings of Oia village before ascending the island’s highest mountain to the Prophet Elias monastery. Listen to the chanting of monks and sample their handmade products at this Greek Orthodox temple.

Continue to a volcanic black sand beach for a stroll or swim, and then taste some of the wine produced in Santorini’s mineral-rich soil at a family winery. Learn about the challenges and benefits of making wine on the island while enjoying views of terraced vineyards built into the cliffs. Throughout the day, enjoy the undivided attention of your private guide.
