Itinerary


After meeting up with your guide, the trip starts with a stop at a famous village of Oia. Built on the northern side of the caldera rim, it’s the most photographed place in Santorini and place where many artists have found their inspiration.
Next, we visit Imerovigli, situated on the higher cliff. The name comes from the word “vigla” which means “day”. In front of the village is located an enormous rock called Skaros. It was used to be the best spot to look out for pirates.
A short stop in Firostefani to see the famous Blue Dome Church, one of the most Santorini landmarks, this church is the subject of so many Santorini postcards.
We will make your way to the peak of Prophet Ilias, Santorini’s highest mountain that stands some 2000 feet above the sea. Be amazed by the island vistas around you and follow your guide inside the ornate Greek Christian monastery perched at the mountain’s summit.

Continue your wine discovery by strolling through the island’s basket vines at one of the traditional wineries and learn about Santorini’s unique viticulture traditions. Taste a selection of 6 different wine styles from across Santorini and Greece, such as Assyrtiko, Nykteri, and the sublimely sweet Vinsanto wine.
Next, stop will be Black Sand Beach of Perivolos. Here you will enjoy some free time to swim or grab a delicious lunch at the seaside local restaurant (optional).
