Full description
Your private tour starts from the north part of Santorini Island, where the spectacular villages of Oia, Firostefani and Imerovigli are located. You will experience the endless panoramic views of Caldera, Thirasia Island and the volcanic islands Palea and Nea Kameni. You will also have the opportunity to take pictures of white houses and blue domed churches whilst there.

Afterwards, it is suggested to visit the Wine Museum Koutsogiannopoulos, which occupies a natural cave. It is 8 meters below ground, 300-meters long and has a labyrinth-like shape. The Wine Museum presents the history of wine and the life of vine-growers in Santorini from 1660 to 1970. Here, visitors can learn about the history of wine, and at the end you can taste a variety of famous local wines.

Following this, you will make your way to the top of Prophet Ilias mountain, 1,500 feet above sea level and with a 360-degree view of the island and the Aegean sea. It is up here where you will also find a picturesque monastery. Later on, you will head towards the traditional settlement of Megalochori, where you will be able to explore it, walking through the traditional alleys and being able to see the local houses and architecture. Finally, your last two stops will be to the unique Red Beach, which is full of red iron volcanic lava rocks, and the famous 2.5-mile-long Black Sand Beach.
