Tour Details

Intimate Santorini

Located about 120 miles off the coastline of Greece lies Santorini, a volcanic island jewel full of charming traditional villages and spectacular sunsets. During this tour, you will learn about the island's volcanic history as you visit famous villages built into the walls of the caldera.

Your journey begins as you head to Megalochori on the southern part of the island to explore this traditional village dotted with iconic old white Cycladic churches and with a burgeoning wine industry.

Continue to the medieval town of Pyrgos and visit a Venetian castle. While in the area you will be treated to a tasting at one of the island's oldest wineries. Sip on award-winning wines and local delicacies as you discover how the wine is cultivated and processed.

From there you will make your way to Oia, known for its unforgettable sunsets that draw visitors from around the globe. Situated on the edge of the caldera at the northernmost part of the island, Oia greets you with traditional cave houses made of pumice stone as well as iconic blue-domed churches.

Spend some time strolling through the ruins of Oia Castle as well as the maze of small shops and cafes. Enjoy the scenery on your return trip to Fira as you learn about the island's agriculture, traditions, and religion.

Once back in Fira take the opportunity to do some shopping or just enjoy the views until your ship's departure.

Book this tour now for a special introduction to the romantic, postcard-perfect island of Santorini.

Fantastic tour! Katarina was out guide and she was amazing. Very knowledgeable on the history and the tour and extremely pleasant. While our shopping in Oia was cut short we did get to experience the first rainfall in 7 months. So that was a very fun experience. Such a beautiful place and driving through it all allows for a great way to take it all in and not worry about where you are going, just enjoy the views and listen to Katarina provide the historical background. Highly recommend this tour!

What a wonderful small group tour of Santorini! Our mini-bus took us to all parts of the island and our tour guide made our time so interesting! She told us so much about the island's history, culture, climate, industry, wine growing/making, etc. that we felt we really got the full 'Santorini" experience. Highly recommend this tour to anyone lucky enough to visit Santorini for the first time!

We felt so lucky to be on this tour. Our guide, Joanna, was amazing in the depth of knowledge, history, and geology. I loved learning a little about the islands and seeing such beautiful places. We started the day in Oia, before it was crazy-busy. Enjoyed scenic drives, lovely wine/food pairings, and historical walks. Getting out to walk on the black pebble beach was a special experience for me.

I was on this tour with my daughter and my daughter-in-law. We all 3 loved this tour. Our guide Katherine did a fantastic job of giving us information about the island in an interesting and personal way. You got the views, the walk through a residential area, the wine tasting was fun with no pressure, and the beautiful Oia. Our group size was 15, so it felt very intimate. You cannot go wrong booking this tour. Ask Katherine where the best bakery is to get some delicious pastries.

Another great excursion. He took just 6 of us all over the Island. The black sand beach was not on the tour but I wanted to see it so he took us there. He was also informative about the history and current affairs of Greece. I highly recommend this excursion.
