Description:

From the black-sand beaches and picturesque caldera to the mountaintops and charming villages, Santorini is an island with much to see. Discover the marvels that make up of one of most charming Greek islands on this private half-day tour.

Your tour begins with a visit to the island's half-submerged caldera—a picture perfect setting. Strike a pose against the backdrop of the deep-blue Aegean Sea and take some memorable photos as your guide tells you about Santorini's volcanic history. Then head to Perissa, the longest black-sand beach on the island, home to the renowned Mesa Vouno rock.

For an insight into Santorini's sacred culture, venture up to the island's highest point, where the Prophet Elias Monastery is perched, at nearly 2,000 feet (565 m) above sea level. Hear monks chant and admire the far-reaching views that span the entire region before sampling dessert wine, honey, and extra virgin olive oil made onsite.

Next, you have the option to visit a traditional winery, where you can learn about the production of the local Assyrtiko wine. You can even take the opportunity to sample some. Alternatively, stop at a charming farm to meet a Greek family and sample some homemade treats.

From the countryside, continue to the village of Oia—renowned for its whitewashed houses and idyllic setting. Take a stroll around the streets and enjoy some free time to explore.
