Santorini is the largest island in a circular archipelago about 200km (120 miles) off the coast of Greece and is part of the South Aegean Volcanic Arc.
Your private tour guide will pick you up and take you to Firostefani, one of the more popular villages on the island. Grab postcard perfect shots of the blue domed church while you learn about Santorini's history and how its geography was formed.
Continue to the traditional village of Oia with its cave houses built into the landscape. After a quick break on the cliff side with a cup of delicious Greek coffee you will head south and pause at one of the famous black beaches.
From there you will make your way to the mountain top of Profitis Ilias and be rewarded with spectacular panoramic views of the archipelago and the Aegean Sea from 600m (1200ft) above sea level.
While here, step into a Greek Orthodox chapel and listen to monks chanting Byzantine music, then sample their local wares.
Your private tour ends with a visit to a local farm where you will have a lesson in the special art of winemaking and sample homemade wines and local delicacies.
Throughout the tour, you will be introduced to Greek traditions and religion. This activity is the perfect introduction to this remarkable island and great for tourists with walking difficulties as steep paths and steps are avoided.
Please Note: Children up to 10 years of age are free. A bottle of water and wine tasting are included. We recommend wearing comfortable, sturdy walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses.

What an amazing island with quite a story. Took the tender in and took the tram to the tour location. Was warned not to ride smelly donkeys. Had a wonderful and private experience, hosted by the great Marcos. So we went the smart routes around and through the island; didn't get stopped by bus traffic. Felt like we were visiting a cousin!

What a surprise when we realized that we were getting a personal tour of Santorini for my party of 4! Our tour guide was excellent. Took us from one end of the island to the other and saw some excellent views. Santorini was breath taking! I'm so glad that we found your site thru our travel agency. Would use again!
