Full description
On this tour, you'll be immersed in the warm and relaxed atmosphere of picturesque villages, admire local architectural styles, witness breathtaking panoramas, discover locations of historical interest and, in the process, grasp the very essence of the island.

A highlight tour such as this would not be complete without a stop at Oia. This idyllic village on the Caldera slope captures the essence of what the island is all about, unrivalled beauty, warm and tranquil atmosphere, traditional local architecture, majestic views.

You'll also stop at Firostefani, the ‘Crown of Fira’. Deriving its name from its elevated position, this village offers some of the best views of the island. This location is also home to the Blue Domed Church, a prominent icon of the island that you surely have seen adorning the cover of many a travel guide.

Dating back to 1711, the Monastery of Prophet Ilias is a major highlight of the island and awaits visitors at the highest point, 600 meters above sea level. The Monastery is a place of great historical significance, with its churches, chapels, bell tower and wealth of various ecclesiastical items from the 18th century.

The tour, of course, cannot omit Megalochori, a true gem of the island. This village is a treat for those seeking tranquillity, with its charming and inviting ambience, cobblestone streets, churches in typical Cycladic architecture and white-washed houses, all soaked in old-world magic.

The 4-hour Highlight Tour may be offered in the morning or in the evening.
