your experience

Santorini is home to stunning beaches and breathtaking views, magnificent archaeological sites and cultural attractions, and quaint traditional villages. Go on this sightseeing tour to get the most out of your time on the island.

Buried in volcanic ash, the Akrotiri Excavation Site – one of the most important historic sites you could visit in the Aegean – has preserved remains of fine frescoes and many other objects and artworks. You’ll be accompanied by a professional archaeological guide here who’ll educate you more about the history and details of the area. Post visiting the site, break for lunch at one of the most popular and much-loved beaches on the island – the wonderful expanse of the black sand Perissa beach.

Head on to the Emporio Village, a charming and lively village that boasts medieval architecture, bell towers, and the typical white-washed, blue-roofed Orthodox churches. Visit the well-fortified medieval fortress that was built in the 15th-century and forms an important part of the village castle complex.

Wine tasting is also a part of this bus tour and you’ll get to savor local and unique wines at Santorini’s Wine Museum. Sip on some great wine as you learn about the winemaking process – after all, this is one of the best vineyards in Europe.

Complete this well-planned tour at the top of Profitis Ilias Mountain – the highest peak of Santorini (567 meters). Take your time admiring the indescribable panoramic views of the entire island.
