Santorini Full-Day Sightseeing Tour
USD 50.40
Overview
Spend a full day discovering Santorini’s ancient history, local culture, and famous views on this great-value highlights tour. Explore the Minoan archaeological site at Akrotiri, swim at the black-sand Perissa Beach, and observe traditional island life in the village of Megalochori. You’ll also take in panoramic views from Prophet Elias Monastery, sip volcanic varietals at a winery, and finish the day with an unforgettable sunset from Oia village.
What to Expect
The adventures begin late morning with pickup near many island hotels. Head first to the renowned archaeological site of Akrotiri, considered the best-preserved Minoan ruins outside of Crete (entrance fees not included). Learn about the Bronze Age civilization that thrived here between 3000 and 1500 BC as you explore remnants of an ancient city preserved in ash from the eruption of Mt Thera.

Continue on to Perissa Beach, where you can swim and sun on the striking black sand and enjoy lunch nearby (own expense) during nearly 2 hours of leisure time. Next, get a glimpse of traditional Greek village life as you walk with your guide through the quaint and quiet streets of Megalochori. Climb back aboard the bus for a ride up to the 18th-century Prophet Elias Monastery, situated on the highest point of the island. Although the monastery itself is now closed to visitors, you can still admire sweeping views and snap photos from the church yard.

In the evening, relax over tastings of Santorini’s unique volcanic varietals and enjoy a picturesque view of terraced vineyards at Santo Wines, one of the island’s largest and most modern estates (tasting fee included). Finally, cap off the day with a visit to Oia village, considered one of the most photogenic places on Earth. Stroll through the narrow streets, browse local boutiques, and catch a spectacular sunset over the caldera before the 9-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at your departure point.

Romantic place

Santorini is a beautiful place; the hiking between Tira and Santorini was wonderful, about 6 miles walk with many stops to take pictures, lots of steps, that day only my HR Garmin logged me 30000 steps and 144 floors, yes, you do hills and stairs

Well rounded tour

We started the tour off by going to the highest point on the island. It was a beautiful look out spot, great place to get pictures of the entire island. Then we stopped and did a small walking tour of this little village called Megalochori....More

They have a central spot they pick up from right down the street from the main area in Fira. It's a easy walk.
