Cannot be perfect as this!
The tour begins with a scenic journey to Oia, admiring the panoramic view of the Aegean Sea and neighboring islands along the way.
The village of Oia is situated on top of a hill which offers a breathtaking view over the volcanic caldera of Santorini. This beautiful village with its narrow streets, traditional whitewashed houses, and blue domed churches provides a picture-postcard vision of the Greek Island.
Enjoy the stunning views in the village of Imerovigli, situated on a higher cliff. In front of the village is an enormous rock called Skaros, which used to be the best spot to look out for pirates.
On the way, we will make a short stop in Firostefani to see the famous Blue Dome Church, the subject of so many Santorini postcards.
Make your way to the peak of Prophet Ilias, Santorini’s highest mountain that stands some 2000 feet above the sea. Be amazed by the island vistas around you and follow your guide inside the ornate Greek Christian monastery perched at the mountain’s summit.
Visit the village of Pyrgos, the old capital of the island, take a guided walk along the narrow paths to the ruins of the Venetian castle.
Taste rare wine varieties in the traditional winery of Venetsanos family. Viniculture is an ancient art in Santorini, thanks to the volcanic soil. Learn the secrets of winemaking and enjoy the tastes of the famous local wines.
Make your way to the Black Beach of Perivolos, located on the southern coast of the Island. Enjoy an optional lunch there; our professional guide will be on hand to recommend the best restaurants to dine.
This is the perfect way to get know the island of Santorini in a half day!

Our family had an amazing tour of the highlights of Santorini with knowledgeable, warm and friendly guide Kristina and driver Spiros who both spoke fluent English. They were great fun, teaching us basic Greek words and phrases. We traveled in a comfortable, large air-conditioned van, and they created a custom tour for us. They brought us to a great restaurant for lunch at the black sand beach. Highly recommend this tour, logistics were easy – easy booking, highly worth every penny.

Took a tour with Santorini Unique Experience Tour and we all really loved it. The tour guide Konstantinos explained everything so well and he was so friendly and welcoming. They even modified the itinerary to fit us and how we wanted to do it, even giving us some extra time here and there. Overall a lovely trip that I highly recommend to anybody who only has a few hours to see everything.

Our drive Alex and tour guide Stefanos were great and we enjoyed the tour. They showed us some areas we would not have otherwise know about. Highly recommended!
