1. Authentic Santorini: A Self-Guided Audio Tour in Oia
Navigate the twists and turns of Oia’s cliff-top pathways and explore its hidden backroads with a long-time resident as your guide. On this walking tour, you’ll see some of Santorini’s famous picture-postcard views and hear stories of both its recent past and its ancient history. Along the way, you’ll get to know how locals have lived on the island from its beginnings as a small settlement to a top tourist destination, and how volcanic eruptions and earthquakes have shaped the village’s character and community. You’ll discover why Santorinians live in cave houses, what life was like before tourism, why Oia was once called the Village of the Captains and what it’s like to live life on the edge! Whether this is your first time in Santorini or you’re revisiting Oia and want to know more than the guidebooks can tell you, I’ll show you the undiscovered village behind the postcard. Allow approximately an hour for this walk.
