Embark on this private tour of Santorini with just yourself, your party and your tour escort.
See the most well-known places on Santorini Island by luxury minibus after docking at the cruise port. 

Meet your assistant at the top of the cable car, then shop, enjoy some sightseeing and even play on the beach over the course of 5-hours. 

After getting of the ship, reach the top of Fira by cable car to meet your escort to begin your customizable tour. The escort will have an itinerary
set for you, however you may change the schedule as you wish.

For your first stop, the guide will suggest a trip to Prophet Elias Mountain, the highest point in Santorini where you can have a panoramic view of the island
as well as the Prophet Elias Monastery.

Next, head to the Akrotiri Excavations so-called “Prehistoric Pompei” or “Lost Atlantis”, an important Minoan Bronze Age settlement of the Aegean,
which was destroyed by a huge eruption during the 17th century BC. The settlement was buried under the volcanic ash, which preserved the whole city
in perfect conditions so as to be referred often as “Prehistoric Pompei”. It has also been suggested as a possible inspiration for Plato's story of Atlantis.
The site has been excavated since 1967.

Next short stop the famous Red Beach for photos at the famous volcanic beach, well known for the unique color of the sand, and the hill behind it.
Soaring red lava cliffs which drop right to the sandy shore into the clear blue sea.

Then, drive to Oia, with a short stop in a Winery where you can taste our local products and wines like Vinsanto with a spectacular view of the volcano.

Last stop, the most phtographed place in Greece, Oia where you can enjoy your walk with views of Blue domes at the the small cave houses dug into the volcanic rocks
as they get interspersed by splashes of rich ochre, deep fuchsia, cobalt blue, oyster pink and earthy red. In Oia village you can have a drink or snack
and buy also some souvenirs for you and your friends.

When your visit in Oia ends, we will drive to Fira, where our local host will drop you off at the cable car, or at the down town of Fira, to have
free time till your time to go back to the ship.


The above tour in Santorini is approximately 5 hours in which you will see the whole island
from the one end to the other. 

If you want you can make the tour 6 hours, in case you
want to add lunch in a Traditional Tavern in Oia, or visit one or two more

Cruise traveler info:

Due to the fact that our port is not deep enough to host the big cruise ships
that arrive from all over the world, the ships dock in the open almost next to
our Volcano and from there, tender boats bring our guests either to
the Athinios port or to the Old port which is called Old but isn't.

Those who will choose a massive Santorini tour purchased from the cruise line,
are taken to Athinios port which is 20 minutes from Fira and those who prefer a more
comfortable and less stressful will be taken to the Old port where there is
no car access and the only 2 ways up are the donkeys and the cable car but you
access Fira within 5 minutes.

Donkeys are fine but please note that they do not take you all the way up and
you will have to walk for a while until you reach Fira, our capital.
We personally recommend you to get the cable car as it is a more comfortable way and allow me to say less smelly.


Feel free to contact and give us all the information regarding your arrival and the number of participants and we will make a tour program that will not leave anyone untouched.
