Why book this tour

Santorini is not only famous as a summer vacation stop. It’s an island rich in both cultural and geological history. It ‘s the location of a settlement that represented one of the most advanced Late Bronze Age settlements in the world.

With sophisticated multi-story dwellings, an elaborate drainage system, amazing wall paintings, 3 floor building, furniture and other vessels that marked the trappings of a highly developed civilization, the ancient Akrotiri is considered as the Pompeii of Aegean and has been referred to by some as the historical basis for the mythical civilization of Atlantis.
