Low Price Guarantee
Explore beautiful Santorini the way you wish on a 4.5-hour private tour with a private driver-guide. Traveling by comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle, make the most of the custom itinerary and let your guide know what you want to see and do. Perhaps visit highlights such as the village of Oia, famous for its stupendous sunsets; the Minoan ruins at Akrotiri, a traditional winery, or simply relax on a black sand beach. Ask your guide for insider tips on off-the-beaten-track gems, and upgrade to an 8-hour tour to explore the island fully.
What to Expect
Meet your private driver-guide at your Santorini hotel or Santorini cruise port, hop inside your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and set off on your custom tour of the island. Your tour includes all transport, with all meals and entrance fees at your own expense.
Before you head anywhere, chat to your friendly guide about the sights you want to see and visit during your tour. As your tour is private, the itinerary is completely flexible and can be customized to match your interests and preferences.
Perhaps start with a visit to one of Santorini’s must-sees: the timeworn excavated ruins at Akrotiri. Here, stroll around the remnants of the Minoan Bronze Age settlement that was buried, and preserved by, volcanic ash as a result of a major eruption in the second millennium BC.
You may also want to relax on one of Santorini’s black sand beaches or delve into its picture-postcard villages, such as Pyrgos and Oia — the latter known for its spectacular sunsets. Then, maybe finish with a visit to a traditional winery to taste or purchase (own expense) some of Santorini’s fresh and distinctive wines. The island's winemaking history stretches back more than 4,000 years and its varietals are renowned for their crispness and high acidity.
Alternatively, ask your guide for their inside take on what to see and do, and perhaps discover some of the experiences and places that other visitors never get to witness. 
See the Itinerary for examples of the different activities and attractions you can enjoy during your tour.

This company was punctual and professional. Our guide was very good at adapting to what we wanted to see (and what we wanted to ignore). Efficient way to learn about Santorini in a short period of time.

We arrived on a cruise ship, took the tender into Santorini, and then took the donkeys up to the top of the mountains in Fira (that was a blast!-must do!). Once we walked over to meet our driver, George, at the cable car exit, we...More

We were brought ashore from the cruise ship by tender (our life boats) and then met the driver at the top of the cable car (inexpensive), although some chose the mule ride option. He held a sign with our name on it and was... More
