Exclusive Santorini, Oia and Winery Tour

Departing from the tender pier at Fira port, you will be lead to your transportation. From here, in groups of never more than 30 people, you will begin your exploration of this wonderful island.

Your tour will take you to the major must see sites on the island. Depending on traffic the day of your tour, the order you see the sites may vary from the tour description order. One of your stops will be at the village of Oia, located at the northern tip of the island. As you travel along, you will see the different layers of lava the volcano had produced making a time line of the island's history. Oia offers magnificent views of the caldera and the rest of the other islands. Depending on the time of day, the sun paints the cliffs with different shades of color and light like an ever-changing landscape painting. Perhaps this is one of the reasons that Oia attracts so many artists. With its cobble stone streets, beautiful old mansions and houses perched on the cliff side, you can admire the traditional Cycladic architecture for which Santorini is so well known.

From Oia, you will travel across the terraced island, through Pyrgos village and make your way up to the highest peak of Santorini, Mt. Profitis Ilias.(883 feet) Here a monastery of the same name was built in 1712. Although you cannot enter the monastery, you can enjoy its magnificent view of the entire island from the south end of Perissa Beach to the north part of the island were Oia village is situated.

After the photo stop, you will drive to one of the local wineries on the island. Here you can learn about how wines were once produced on the island, as well as learning of the unique way in which grapes are grown and harvested on Santorini. You will be able to sample three of the most famous wines of Santorini.

From the winery, you will make their way back to the town of Fira, the picturesque capital town of the island built on the rim of the caldera wall. Your guide will lead you to the major pedestrian street where they will give you a brief orientation of how to navigate the town before you explore on your own. Wander the endless maze of whitewashed streets looking for jewelry, gifts or the perfect view of the caldera while you enjoy a coffee or wine. The tour ends in Fira, so you can enjoy the atmosphere of this beautiful place and return to your ship at your leisure.

Please Note: The tour duration does not include the time required to tender ashore from your ship. This tour ends in Fira Town.

What a beautiful island. We had a fantastic tour guide who did a wonderful job of showing off her island. She explained so many details. Went to a lovely winery for a wine tasting that was great. Had lots of time to wander around by ourselves. Don't underestimate how long the cable car line is...had the usual rude folks who had to cut the line...not nice..

Reviewer: C.Simmons
We booked this tour because it hit all the places we wanted to go in the short amount of time we had as we were on a cruise. The tour guide was very good, gave us lots of information regarding the island. Had plenty of time in each location with lots of time to spare in Fira. did not feel rushed at all. would recommend this tour.

Santorini was crowded, but absolutely beautiful. The winery had the best views you could imagine and the wine and shared plates were very good.
