Full description
Your tour starts as your local expert picks you up from your hotel or meeting place in Fira.

Your party will have ample opportunity to capture pictures of some of the most photogenic places in Santorini on your journey.  Take in the stark, ancient ruins dotting the hillside and capture photos of sailboats. See many old castles and churches and the whitewashed homes of Santorini residents. Your local expert will take you by some of the most stunning churches in Pyrgos before reaching the pinnacle of Santorini, the Profitis Ilias Monastery. Here, see the island and the sea from an awe-inspiring 360-degree view. Experience a safe and enjoyable tour that exceeds your idea of learning about Greece.  A short walk through Megalochori Village gives you time to stretch your legs and traverse the rich, culture and heritage of the island. Learn local secrets and fun treasures about Greece that only a local can provide. Stop off for a refreshing swim at one of the black, sandy beaches of Perivolos or Perissa Beach where you will see why the area is unique. This is a tailored shore excursion and you can add other options to your tour, including an exploration of the Akrotiri prehistoric city that was covered by volcanic ash more than 2,000 years ago.

The Get Your Guide tour was the easiest tour we had on our 12 day cruise. Our tour guide Nicolas picked us up right where we came off the cable car, stayed with us the whole time and dropped us off right by the cable car. It was a wonderful experience. It was the best way to go.

Nicholas was very friendly and knowledgeable about Santorini. He was open to our itinerary that we put together plus suggested other sites to see. The monastery at the highest point on the island was great plus he got us to the best picture spot in Oia. He then got us a spot at the Santo Winery to get pics of the sunset.

We met our driver and tour guide at the top of the cable cars in Fira. He had a sign and escorted us to an air conditioned SUV (there were 6 in our group). We told him where we'd like to go and he recommended some other things to. Within our time with our guide, we visited Akritori (we paid for the ticket as indicated in our purchase of this tour), saw the highest point on Santorini and visited a Monastery, visited Oia (where he took us to several key locations and recommended a few good eating places/restaurants), then he left us on our own (as we wanted) to shop and sightsee in OIa, When we were finished, we drove us back to Fira to return to our ship. it was well worth the money especially for a family with teenagers. It was our first port on a cruise and it was a great way to kick off the trip. We ate at Skala restaurant in Oia and the mussels were the best we've ever had! Tour guide was wonderful---and adapted to our needs/requests.
