Commence your private Santorini tour with a hotel pickup, guided by a local expert driver. Explore the renowned island, beginning with the cultural immersion in the village of Pyrgos. Perched atop a hill, Pyrgos boasts a 16th-century Venetian castle, surrounded by vineyards, blue-domed churches, and charming cave homes with balconies.
Continue to Megalochori, a picturesque town carved out of volcanic rock, featuring blue-domed churches, underground caves, and white-washed tower bells. Immerse yourself in the non-touristy atmosphere, exploring winding streets, sipping Greek coffee in the pebble-stone square, and connecting with the local way of life.
Proceed to Emporio, an ancient commercial hub with narrow, picturesque alleyways built during the Middle Ages to protect against pirates. Experience the well-kept castle from the 15th century and feel the historic charm as you navigate the paths.
Explore the Akrotiri Archaeological Site, uncovering the secrets of a 4,000-year-old Bronze Age community buried under volcanic ash. Marvel at well-preserved paintings, intricate drainage systems, and other features of a Minoan town, offering a glimpse into the past.
Conclude your journey with a short drive to Red Beach, where you can absorb the serene beauty and magnificent views of this unique natural phenomenon.
Your private Santorini tour concludes with a drop-off at the initial pickup location after an enriching experience.
