Private Panoramic Santorini
Private Panoramic Santorini
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: Vehicles available for this tour accommodate groups of up to 6, 19 or 30 passengers maximum. Please take this information into consideration when booking.

Great tour in Santorini! We saw all the highlights which were to say the least gorgeous! We even had time to hit the fish spa and have dinner. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made our visit in Santorini perfect!
We had a fabulous tour of Santorini, taking in all corners of the island as well as some local wine and treats. Our guide, Joanna, was simply an angel. We couldn't ask for better. She took the time to ensure we were getting the most of our visit, providing countless facts and history tidbits about the island. We were amazed by her level of knowledge and ability to share. She was sure to stop at all key picture taking points, regularly taking on camera duties to ensure we captured awesome family pics. And if that weren't enough, we had lots of laughs along the way, truly making it a memorable day. Thank you, Joanna! You rock!

This day we had Katherine. Let me just tell you what an absolute gem she was. She was so knowledgeable and clearly passionate about her island. She never made any of us feel rushed and answered every single question anyone had. Everyone knew her there. We had many local people tell us how lucky we where to have her as our guide. My aunt was actually stopped by another tour guide and told that Katherine was the best guide on the island. We would ALL agree she was amazing.
Marcos was excellent and the first moment we met I felt comfortable enough to tell him all the high maintenance factors we had in our family. My father had mobility issues, my mother needed to use the bathroom a lot, and my husband is a photographer so we needed to capitalize on photo opts. He planned out tour perfectly and adjusted where needed to make sure all of us had the best afternoon in Santorini. Plus, he is super nice, knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour!

Santorini is in any case a beautiful island to visit, but apart from this, it turned out to be the absolute highlight of all our excursions, due to the fact that Marcos, our tour guide, was really excellent. We were a private group of only 4 people. He is very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Best of all he doesn't talk only because he likes the sound of his own voice, but provides interesting information! He was totally tuned in to our every need, and ensured at all times that we were comfortable. If Marcos will be your tour guide, this tour is highly recommended.
