Private Hidden Paths
Avoid the typical tourist traps and see a special side of Santorini that very few visitors get to do on this off-road tour.
Your private tour guide will pick you up from the cable car station in a 4x4 jeep or an SUV and take you to the south side of the island where you can walk on a hidden beach inside the cliffs and enjoy a refreshing swim.
From there you will travel to a church in a secret cave, meet with the owners and find out what local life is like. Continue to the south end of the island to visit the lighthouse and enjoy stunning views of the southern Aegean Sea.
Make a stop at an organic farm and learn about their agriculture, the art of winemaking and savor local finger food specialties.
At Gabriel's Hill, you will see the famed windmills as well as the unique beaches of Vlychada that will beg for you to pull out your camera. Throughout the tour, you will learn about Greek culture and religion.
This activity is the perfect excursion for returning visitors who want to experience a different take on Santorini or for those who love to go exploring off the beaten track.

Markos greeted us at the top of the funicular in Fira, Santorini (no, we didn't take the donkeys) and allowed us a vision of the island that few get to enjoy. He took us to Oia and directed us to the Atlantis bookstore and a wonderful bakery for baklava. We went to the archaeological dig at Akrotiri and then found the highest point on the island for an amazing view. We got to do in one tour what all three ship excursions couldn't provide. It was an amazing way to see such a spectacular place, with a person who provided history and context for an enviable way of life. We could not thank him enough!!!!
