Full description
Start with the breath-taking view at the Prophet Elias Monastery and visit the picturesque monastery. Next, discover Pyrgos village, one of the most picturesque villages on the island. Continue to Akrotiri Excavations, one of the most significant archaelogical sites in the area. Akrotiri is a vast structure, once inhabited by 200 families and preserved under the volcano’s lava. Then, you will have some free time (approx 40 minutes) at the Red Beach to simply enjoy the colorful formations of the mountains and/or visit Akrotiri Bay for coffee or lunch with Greek traditional mezedes and ouzo (not included in the price). Fira town comes next, the capital of the island where strolling around will give you the opportunity to take magnificent pictures of the Caldera. Shop or enjoy traditional Santorinian cuisine. The last stop is Oia village for the world’s most famous sunset.

The experience was what I expected. The biggest issue is that it is really tiresome. Yes you see a lot in the 10 hours and if this is your target than it's fine, but I would make less stops with more time not to be always on the run the whole day.

Didn't find it necessary. Take a car or the local buses yourself and wonder around the island. I came at a time where the island was only 60% occupied with tourists, perhaps then this bus will be a better option (not linger cause of parking) if its your first day and you are looking to know the whole place in just a few hours this could be nice. I left early then planned and did my own at some point- its up to you.

I love our guide - Vicky! She is cheerful, energetic, can easily put a smile on your face! She certainly knows her beloved island well. 10 hours sound long, but everything make sense. The schedule doesn't seem to be rush, although I would prefer to be able to spend a little more time in Pyrgos.
