Your scenic adventure begins here. First of all, we will pick you up – by our late model air-conditioned coach and with a tour guide – at a pick up point nearby your hotel, then head to the attractions of Thira.
Our first stop will be the archaeological site of Akrotiri, where our tour guide will lead you through this enigmatic historical site. Our next stop will be beach of Perivolos. It’s a volcanic black beach located on the south east of the island. Here you will enjoy some free time to swim and/or grab a delicious lunch at a seaside local restaurant. Then we will head north and visit the traditional village of Megalochori. This village is almost totally untouched by tourism with the exception of a few small hotels and restaurants. Here, you will spend around 30 minutes on your own, exploring spots that only the locals know about.
After our visit to Megalochori, we will continue to the Prophet Ilias Monastery, on top of the highest mountain and enjoy panoramic views of the island and the Aegean Sea. Then we ‘ll drive through Pyrgos village (which was the first capital of the island) and head over to relax while we sip on 3 different kinds of wine from Santos winery. This winery is built on the edge of the cliff, and offers gorgeous views to the sea and the volcano.
The last and the highlight tour stop will be the world famous village of Oia (in Greek it’s pronounced Ia). Oia is the most picturesque, romantic and magic place you would probably see in Santorini. Here you will spend some time on your own and watch the most photographed sunset of Europe. After the sunset we will return you back to the pick-up point.
