    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    Traditional is so hip, come see why! Perpetually talked about and captured in majestic photos, this unique island hosts many villages all of which hide a piece of history. Yours to discover! Our Hidden villages tour highlights the traditional side of Santorini. Experience the island off the beaten path with this 6-hour private tour, accompanied by an experienced guide. Visit hidden places, churches, local fish taverns and restaurants including the village of Megalochori which is characterized by hundreds of small white houses, sprawling vineyards and beautiful churches. Continue to Emporio village with narrow walkways and picturesque houses where we find a Venetian castle and fortress date from the Middle Ages. Visit the village of Mesa Gonia, one of the villages in which most stock breeding is done. Our final stop is the volcanic beach of Perivolos, a seemingly endless stretch of black sand. Here you will have free time for a refreshing swim on this infamous beach. Savour the traditional dishes of Santorini, Greece at local family beach tavernas or enjoy the summertime entertainment in this unique beach.

    Great day in Santorini! We had already been to Oia previously and my husband was having issues with his knees so we had an abbreviated tour there and saw much more of Santorini. It showed that his knowledge of culture and history was a passion. We also wanted a wine tasting and

    Dear Ginny, thank you very much for sharing your experience. It was a real pleasure for Akiss to escort an Artist, a Prince (from Persia) and a Baron (from Colombia). Hope to see you again on the Island or in Nashville. We feel also lucky for the beautiful people that we meet during our private tours. Take care.

    I booked this tour for four of us as we had a short cruise stop in Santorini. I read that getting up to Fira from the tenders could be a challenge if there were a lot of ships in so I wanted an early tour. Amani set us up for 8:30 but she was just arriving a little after 8:00
