Day 3 - Santorini Full-Day Sightseeing Tour

After breakfast, get ready at your hotel lobby by 10.45am for your pick up. Head first to the renowned archaeological site of Akrotiri, considered the best-preserved Minoan ruins outside of Crete (entrance fees not included). Learn about the Bronze Age civilization that thrived here between 3000 and 1500 BC as you explore remnants of an ancient city preserved in ash from the eruption of Mt Thera. 

Continue on to Perissa Beach, where you can swim and sun on the striking black sand and enjoy lunch nearby (own expense) during nearly 2 hours of leisure time. Next, get a glimpse of traditional Greek village life as you walk with your guide through the quaint and quiet streets of Megalochori. Climb back aboard the bus for a ride up to the 18th-century Prophet Elias Monastery, situated on the highest point of the island. Although the monastery itself is now closed to visitors, you can still admire sweeping views and snap photos from the church yard. 

In the evening, relax over tastings of Santorini’s unique volcanic varietals and enjoy a picturesque view of terraced vineyards at Santo Wines, one of the island’s largest and most modern estates (tasting fee included)

Finally, cap off the day with a visit to Oia village, considered one of the most photogenic places on Earth. Stroll through the narrow streets, browse local boutiques, and catch a spectacular sunset over the caldera before the 9-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel approximately at 8pm.


Day 4 - Ancient Akrotiri and Santorini Wineries Tour

After breakfast, be ready at your hotel lobby by 8.30am for pick up. Meet your friendly guide, hop aboard your comfortable, air-conditioned minivan with the rest of your small group, and set out on your 6-hour tour. 

Make your first stop at the fascinating archaeological site of Akrotiri, an ancient Minoan Bronze Age settlement that was destroyed and buried by a major volcanic eruption some 3,600 years ago. 

Stroll around the semi-crumbled, multi-storied buildings with your archaeology-expert guide, and view the frescoes, pottery and other relics as you hear how life would have been here aeons ago. Many speculate that this timeworn site is home to the remains of Atlantis, a mythical city that was described by Greek philosopher Plato.
 Santorini’s long history of winemaking is evidenced in some of Akrotiri’s remains, providing the perfect cue for your next round of visits — to three of the island’s traditional wineries. 

Admire the views of the vineyards as you travel to each of the wineries, and taste a total of 12 wines across your three visits. Wines have been made on the island for more than 4,000 years, and are renowned for their delightful crispness and high acidity, both resulting from Santorini's aspa — the island’s unique, volcanic soil. 

Enjoy a cellar tour at each winery and learn about the different winemaking processes. Hear how the grapes are grown in baskets near the ground rather than on trellises to capture maximum moisture from the island’s minimal rainfall.

 Your 12 tasting wines will include favored varietals such as nykteri, vinsanto and assyrtiko and be paired with local goodies such as olives, salami, cheese and breads to balance out their tastes. 

Finally, end your tour with a drop-off back at your hotel at approximately 3pm. Free at leisure. 


Day 5 - Santorini Volcanic Islands Cruise: Volcano, Hot Springs and Thirassia

After breakfast, be ready at your hotel lobby by 9.45am for pick up. Depart by bus to Athinios port and embank on a unique greek traditional boat.

Return to boat and continue to the second lava islet called Palea Kameni. Dive to find its Hot Springs and have the chance to swim in green sulfur waters.

Next is the traditional island of Thirassia for free time at leisure (1.5hours). You can visit the village of Manolas, which is accessed by riding a donkey or walking its winding stairs, or you can relax at the picturesque small port of Thirassia to swim and have lunch. Back on the boat, cruise under Oia Village before heading back to Athinios.

Your tour ends back at your hotel approximately at 4pm.

On the sand, master the basic techniques of standup paddleboarding under the instruction of your professional guide. If you’re an experienced paddleboard, feel free to hit the water straight away. 

Then, once your small group reach the same level, follow your guide out to sea to enjoy the spectacular coastal scenery of Santorini. Marvel at volcanoes and dramatic landscapes before returning to the beach for a fulfilling picnic lunch. Your experience ends with drop-off at your hotel approximately at 1.30pm.
