    What to Expect
    • Professional guide -expert on Santorini’s hidden beauties
    • The picturesque village of Oia
    • The famous blue dome church at Firostefani 
    • Santorini’s highest point with a 360 view of the island
    • The famous volcanic beachesItinerary

    We start our tour by picking you up from the location of your preference.

    Our First destination is the picturesque village of Oia.

    Driving to Oia is by itself a unique experience as the road taking us there is surrounded by cliffs and seascapes. Oia is located on the northern tip of the island, high on the ridge of a cliff, and has the best views of the island. In the village you can shop or walk around to discover the typical architecture of Santorini with its characteristic white houses dug into the volcanic soil.

    Next stop is Firostefani, a small village north of Fira. Here we find the most visited church of the island, the one with the famous blue dome, one of the most photographed in the world. From Firostefani you can enjoy the spectacular views of the volcano, the caldera and Fira.

    We continue with our visit to "Profitis Ilias".

    This is the highest spot of the island (567 meters), located between Pyrgos and Kamari. The mountain took its name from the monastery of Profitis Ilias (Prophet Elijah) that is built right on its peak. This vantage point offers you a breathtaking 360 panoramic view of the entire island, from the patchwork agricultural plains to the hilltop village of Oia.

    Next, we go south to visit the famous volcanic beaches of Santorini.

    First, one of Santorini’s favorite beaches, the famous Red Beach, which is very close to the ancient site of Akrotiri. The red and black volcanic rocks create a unique and somewhat eerie landscape, which makes the Red Beach a most popular destination.

    Our last destination is the volcanic black beach of Perissa.

    The impressive combination of black lava sand and crystal blue waters makes it one of the most popular beaches in Santorini. The beach is fully organized with sun umbrellas, several beach bars, taverns and sea sport facilities.

    Our private tour concludes at the drop off point of your preference.
