Santorini Private Sightseeing Tour
From US$99.05
Overview
Skip big-bus tours or the hassle of renting a car, and let a private driver and guide show you the best of the Santorini on this full-day sightseeing tour. Visit traditional clifftop villages, relax on volcanic black- and red-sand beaches, explore the island’s ancient history at the Minoan site of Akrotiri, and taste unique Santorinian wine. The itinerary can be customized if there's anything in particular you'd like to see.
What to Expect
Choose your preferred departure time, and meet your personal driver and guide with pickup at your hotel. Head first to one of Santorini’s most photographed locations, the northern clifftop village of Oia, known for its whitewashed houses and incredible caldera views. Get a glimpse into daily life in the traditional villages of Imerovigli and Firostefani, and then journey back to ancient times at the Akrotiri archaeological site, a Minoan settlement buried by a volcanic eruption.

Swim or simply relax and soak up views of the Aegean on the distinctive black- and red-sand beaches. Cap off the day with wine tasting at a local estate, where you’ll learn about Santorini's unique winegrowing heritage that dates back several millennia. If there's anything else you want to see, the day’s itinerary can be completely customized to match your interests. Please note that all food, drinks, and entrance fees are at your own expense.
