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 Santorini 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 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.

This was an excellent tour! Our guide Markos made our day with his sense of humour and indepth knowledge of Santorini. We enjoyed a stop at the "balcony" of Santorini, time at a volcanic beach, a beautiful wine tour and tasting, and a lovely afternoon in two of the island's famous towns. I would recommend Markos to anyone who visits the island.

We had a wonderful experience in Santorini on August 28th. Katerina was our guide and she was wonderful. She was probably the best guide we had on all of our tours. Not, to say the other tour guides were poor, she just really spoiled us. She was very knowledgeable about Santorini and provided us with much insight into the history and traditions of the island. We were fortunate that there were only four in our party. It was also the first time in 40 yrs, I did not wear a seat belt. 🙂 Thank you, Katarina!!! George and Kristi

The tour was as I described, but the tour guide was so kind, and offered us recommendations for a place to eat and then items to try on the menu -- which were delicious! Lunch (and the wine tasting) was the highlight of our time on Santorini -- it was breath-taking!!

Our tour was amazing. We were late getting to the tour as tendering took a lot longer than anticipated. Our guide called me to make sure everything was ok and was waiting for us at the top of the cable car. She gave a great tour and was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour.
