    What to Expect
    After meeting your private guide at the place of your choice ( Hotel, Cable Car, Port , Airport), your tour is about to begin. The cliff of caldera is the first stop, where you can learn about the history, the culture and the geography of the Island through the centuries. Next stop is Profit Elias, which is built on the highest point of Santorini. From there you can get an incredible view over the island, the caldera and the neighboring islands. Afterwards, you’re heading to Megalochori, one of the most picturesque villages in this island where historical mansions, old traditional houses and pirate hideaways take place. Undoubtedly, the beautiful beaches are challenges for visitors. On your 5-hour private tour you will see Black Beach which is a very attractive place. Crystal waters, black sand and pebbles make this beach so famous. Also, in Red Beach you will enjoy the unique landscape of red and black volcanic rocks from the headland. In addition, you will have the chance to stop at the Venetsanos Winery. You can enjoy there high quality wines and learn the process of making this famous local wine. On your way to Oia, you will pass from  Firostefani  which is on the north side of Fira and you will visit Blue Dome Church which you would have definitely seen in many photos before. The view from there is spectacular as you can enjoy the magnificent sight of Fira and the sunset in the evening.  The last stop of the tour is Oia, the most well-known village in Santorini, very famous for its traditional cave houses built the cliff of caldera . You will have plenty of time to explore Oia with your guide. You should definitely stay there to see the amazing sunset which is known all over the world. (If you are on a afternoon tour)
