Description

Enjoy a 6 hours private journey through the entire island on a deluxe and air-conditioned van. Your experienced, local driver/guide will pick you up at the time and place of your choice and share his knowledge of Santorini’s culture, traditions and curiosities.

Head first to the northern part of the island and embrace the best of Oia village. Unique in every way with the most spectacular sunset, iconic blue domed churches, scenic pathways and stunning views. One of the most photographed places in Greece, Oia is situated on the top of an impressive cliff and offers a spectacular view over the volcano and the Aegean sea. The village has several cultural attractions such as: The Maritime museum, the traces of a Venetian fortress and the Captains houses. Explore the large shopping area and enjoy a drink in one of the several open-air cafes. 

Continue your road trip by strolling the narrow pathways of the traditional village of Megalochori. This settlement is made of hundreds of small white painted houses with exquisite architecture, tiny alleys, tower bells, beautiful blue domed chapels and underground cave houses. At this picturesque and non-touristic environment, you will be involved with the local culture & lifestyle.

At the extreme Southwest part of Santorini visit the lighthouse. Built by a French company in 1892, it’s considered one of the most beautiful of the Cycladic Islands and a unique point to watch the sunset. Standing on the edge of a high cliff right above the sea, its position is ideal for taking panoramic pictures and admiring Santorini's famous Caldera from a different point of view.

Next destination at the Red beach, the most unique natural beach of the island, where red is the dominant color.  Take amazing pictures of the enormous volcanic rocks and the steep hills that create a captivating wild scenary. This wonderful volcanic landscape will capture your complete attention.

Head further to the Southernmost part of Santorini and relax at Perissa-Perivolos Black Beach. It is the longest and most famous beach in Santorini and a unique sight of the volcanic island. Enjoy leisure time, take pictures on the black lava sand, swim in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean sea and taste traditional dishes in a seaside restaurant.

Head up to the Mountain of Prophet Elias and admire the most breathtaking view from the island's highest peak. From this vantage point, you will enjoy a striking view of the entire island. The Mountain's name is Profitis Ilias (Prophet Elias), coming from the Monastery with the same name on its peak, built in 1711. Whilst in this stunning and peaceful environment, you may as well taste wine and local products made by the monks, who reside at the monastery.

Select the departure of your choice and enjoy a memorable road trip. The sunset tour starts at 2pm-3pm and includes Oia’s world famous sunset or an equally breathtaking sunset experience either from the lighthouse or the highest island's peak.
