Description

Enjoy a 6 hours private journey through the entire island on a deluxe and air-conditioned van. Your experienced, local driver/guide will pick you up at the time and place of your choice and share his knowledge of Santorini’s culture, traditions and curiosities.

Head first to the northern part of the island and embrace the best of Oia village. Unique in every way with iconic blue domed churches, scenic pathways, stunning views and the most spectacular sunset. One of the most photographed places in Greece, Oia is situated on the top of an impressive cliff and offers a spectacular view over the volcano and the Aegean sea. The village has several cultural attractions such as: The Maritime museum, traces of a Venetian fortress and Captains houses. You may as well explore the large shopping area and relax in one of the several open-air cafes. 

Continue your trip and stroll around the narrow pathways of Megalochori traditional village. This settlement is made of hundreds of small white painted houses with exquisite architecture, tiny alleys, tower bells, beautiful blue domed chapels and underground cave houses. In this picturesque and non-touristic environment, you’ll truly be basking in the local culture and lifestyle.

At the extreme Southwest part of Santorini visit the Akrotiri's lighthouse. Built by a French company in 1892, it’s considered one of the most beautiful of the Cycladic Islands and a unique point to watch the sunset. Standing on the edge of a high cliff right above the sea, its position is ideal for taking panoramic pictures and admiring Santorini's famous Caldera from a different point of view.

Next destination at the Red beach, the most unique natural beach of the island, where red is the dominant color. Take amazing pictures of the enormous volcanic rocks and the steep hills that create a captivating wild scenary. This wonderful volcanic landscape will capture your complete attention.

Head further to the Southernmost part of Santorini and relax at Perissa-Perivolos Black beach. It is the longest and most famous beach in Santorini and a unique sight of the volcanic island. Lase in the black lava sand, swim in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean sea and taste traditional dishes in a seaside restaurant.

Head up to the Mountain of Prophet Elias and admire the most breathtaking view from the island's highest peak. From this vantage point, you will enjoy a striking view of the entire island. The Mountain's name is Profitis Ilias (Prophet Elias), coming from the Monastery with the same name on its peak, built in 1711. Whilst in this stunning and peaceful environment, you may as well taste wine and local products made by the monks, who reside at the monastery.

The sunset tour starts at 2pm or 3pm and includes an amazing sunset experience from the location of your choice such as: Oia village, the lighthouse or the Mountain of Prophet Elias.

Please note: This tour has flexible departures. Feel free to write your preferred start time in the booking process and the local office will contact you in order to adjust the tour according to your needs. Recommended departure times are from 08:00 am to 15:00 pm.
