  • Santorini: Bus Tour to Firostefani, Imerovigli and Oia

    6. Santorini: Bus Tour to Firostefani, Imerovigli and Oia

    Start with pickup from your hotel and embark on a tour to see Santorini’s most picturesque locations at sunset. Firstly, stop to see the famous Blue Domes of Oia, which is an iconic image of the island.  Then, make your way to the village of Firostefani, with its beautiful houses and quaint streets.  Continue to Imerovigli, where you can walk down the narrow paths of the village along the coast. Hike up Skaros rock, where you will have beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding islands and the caldera.  Finish up the tour at one of the most popular destinations on the island, the village of Oia. Enjoy a spectacular sunset from the castle to finish off your day, before being returned to your hotel in the evening.

    Couldn’t catch the regular bus for sunset in Oia, so had to get the tour. Overall very nice experience.Although in the beginning made me nervous a lot, as the bus was late for 20 minutes for pick up. Also didn’t get why pick up couldn’t have been organized from the hotel if we anyway passed by it. Minibus took us to a point somewhere, where we joined a big-bus tour. Two photostops for some pictures and then headed to Oia. Overall the timing was just right because we were able to have a walk around just before it started to get overcrowded. Time was enough for a walk and dinner. Transfer back was organized very well, by minibus they splitted people according to the place we lived on the island, so not a long drive around the whole island, dropping off everyone. The only thing that might be better- is to move departure time from Oia 30 min later, to be able to enjoy the sunset at some viewpoints and not be late for the transfer back.

  • Private Half-Day Sightseeing Tour of Santorini

    Choose your own departure time to meet up with your private guide at your Santorini accommodations. Depart for a 5-hour customized tour of the volcanic island, which can be tailored to your interests. You'll be traveling in a private air-conditioned vehicle. The proposed tour covers the island's major sights, such as the village of Oia, filled with whitewashed building's overlooking the island's caldera. Check out Akrotiri, which features bronze age ruins mired in cooled lava from an ancient volcanic eruption. Hit both the Black and Red beaches, whose volcanic sand lives up to their respective colorful names. Finish up at a traditional winery before drop off back at your departure point.

    The tour itself was great. We were picked up and ended our tour on time. Yet, it was up to us to manage the order of stops and their duration, giving us exactly the flexibility we needed. Santorini is a beautiful place and 5 hours are obviously not enough to see everything, but we had a great time, saw marvellous places and enjoyed great pastry and some improvised minutes at a family beach.

Great experience! Would highly recommend to anyone. Picked us up on time from agreed location in high end transportation. Tour guide was very friendly and explained the day well.. Had brought our own water but offered bottles anyway! After showing us a vineyard and how vines grow, Brought to great vineyard with lovely host who explained everything well, without killing us with detail. Very nice selection of wines for tasting with some cheese and bread. Ended up buying a couple bottles to bring back with us and they also offered shipping for a fee. Next stop was cooking class just down the road at amazing location. Again everyone so nice; our chef was very friendly and funny, mixing explanations of what he was making with his own stories and history of the food etc. Got to eat what we helped make (with more wine) and then taken up to the restaurant for lunch, which was freshly prepared versions of what we made as well as our own. Again more wine. And a dessert! Definitely worth doing!!
