Full description

Embark on a full-day guided tour of Santorini's highlights. Visit the iconic blue-domed churches of Oia, admire the views from Profitis Ilias, and relax on the shores of Perissa Beach before some well-deserved wine tasting.

After pickup from your hotel, board the luxury coach and drive to Profitis Ilias, the highest point on the island. Take in an incredible panorama of the entire island of Santorini, and the stunning deep blue color of the Aegean Sea while learning about the island´s fascinating volcanic history.

Wander around the courtyard of the 18th-century monastery that sits on top of the mountain. Then visit the Saint Nektarios chapel and enjoy the tranquility of your surroundings.

Continue to the village of Pyrgos, a hidden gem of Santorini. Wander through its winding alleys and immerse yourself in its traditional atmosphere. See typical houses, blue-domed churches, and quaint shops. Walk up to its imposing castle for beautiful vistas of the surrounding area.

The next stop is Emporio, where you will join a guided walk and visit the small Venetian fortress. Feel like you’re on the set of Mamma Mia as you discover the many doorways, windows, alleys, and arches of this picturesque medieval village.

Continue to Perissa Beach, also known as Black Beach. Here, there will be plenty of free time to go swimming in the sea or have lunch at one of the Greek tavernas facing the beach.

Take the opportunity to taste local Santorinian wine, one of the most famous products of the island. Learn about the winemaking process and enjoy a private wine tasting session of 3 wines made of local grape varieties.

In the early evening, arrive at the cliff-top village of Oia with its famous blue-domed churches. Embark on a guided walk from Saint George's Church in the most peaceful part of Oia. Learn about Oia´s glorious maritime past and admire elegant captains' mansions and cave-like houses along the way.

Once at the bustling castle area, enjoy some free time to take some photos, shop, or have a relaxing drink. Finally, watch an incredible sunset before meeting up with your guide opposite Platsani Church. Board the bus for a relaxing evening journey with drop-off back at your hotel.

Amazing experience we have during our 2022 summer vacation. The buss driver and the guide were really nice and polite, and really happy to explain the history of Santorini and answer any questions. The only reason there is 4 starts is because the historic explanations were not always accurate. Vin Santo is not from Santorini, but from Italy, specifically from Tuscany and Umbria.

The tour was absolutely amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable and thorough in his explanations. The vehicle was clean and the driver did an excellent job navigating all of the traffic. I would definitely recommend NST travel for taking a tour of the island.
