Private Custom Tour: Santorini in a Day

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    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.

    We met our guide at 9:00 a.m. at the top of the cable car in Fira, but it sounded like we could have set the meeting time at our convenience earlier or later.
