Santorini Shore Excursion: Private Scenic Tour of Santorini, including Oia and Mt Profitis Ilias Monastery

[Category: Shore Excursions]
While you?re in port in Santorini, discover the beauty of the island on a private shore excursion. Your private guide will lead you around the island on a scenic sightseeing tour, showing you rocky landscapes, vineyards and fabulous views of the beautiful coastline. Visit the highest peak of the island, Profitis Ilias, where a monastery of the same name sits. Discover the small village of Oia, built on a steep slope of the volcanic caldera, and wander around its little shops that offer traditional, handmade products. Then in Fira, the capital of Santorini, enjoy a short cable car ride to the pier.

When you arrive in the Santorini port, meet your local guide for a private shore excursion around the island. Your tour starts as you board a small boat and head toward Fira port, where your private guide will be waiting.

In Athinios, a private car will be waiting to take you on a short trip to Profitis Ilias, Santorini's highest peak. Admire the rocky landscapes and vineyards as you drive to the top of the mountain. At 1,853 feet (565 meters) above sea level, the monastery boasts great views and is one of the oldest monasteries on the island. Beginning in 1806, the monastery ran a Greek school for almost 40 years. Today, it holds an important collection of bibles and icons of the Greek Orthodox religion.

Next, proceed to the northernmost tip of the island to visit Oia. This small, dramatic village, built on a steep slope of the caldera, is home to dwellings that are nestled in niches hewn into the volcanic rock. As you walk through its narrow cobbled streets with your guide, you will come across many shops that offer a varied collection of handmade ceramic art, paintings and jewelry. Perched on the edge of the cliffs, Oia also offers spectacular views of Fira (Santorini's capital) and the volcano that gave birth to the island. Finally, make your way to Fira, where you?ll enjoy a short cable car ride down to the pier, where your ship is docked.

You may request that your private guide schedule free time during your tour so you can get a snack or lunch (own expense). Please do this as soon as you meet your guide, before the tour starts.

On this private shore excursion from the Santorini port, you will cover all the top sights of the island. Start your tour at a local winery, where you?ll sample three of the 36 types of wine that Santorini produces. Then explore the unique villages of Oia and Fira, built on the caldera rim, grab a snack at one of the local cafes, and learn interesting facts about the island at the Naval Maritime Museum and the Museum of Prehistoric Thira. You will also have time to wander around the cobbled streets and shops of Fira before returning to the port by cable car.

When you arrive in the Santorini port, board a small boat and enjoy panoramic views on the short ride to the Fira harbor. There, meet your private guide to begin your sightseeing tour of this beautiful Greek island as you hop in a private car for a drive to the nearby village of Pyrgos. Stop at one of the beautiful wineries for a tasting of three local wines. Santorini's volcanic soil, high daytime temperatures and nighttime humidity have helped islanders to produce 36 different kinds of grape varieties.

Then visit the Prehistoric Museum Thira (or Thera). The museum holds many objects from Crete and the Aegean islands. See artifacts from the excavation of Akrotiri, including a gold ibex, the only object made of a precious metal discovered at the archeological site.

Finally, travel to Fira, another attractive town perched on the caldera rim. Fira is the island's capital and home to many interesting stories, as your guide will explain. From here, enjoy the last views of the island on the short cable car ride down to the Santorini port.

While you are in port in Santorini, see the beauty of the island on this private shore excursion. Hop in a small local boat and make your way to the Fira harbor, where you?ll jump in a private luxury car with your local guide and proceed to the archeological site of Akrotiri. Often compared to Pompeii, Akrotiri is a site from an earlier age and preserves amazing ruins that date back to the 2nd millennium BC. Walk through the passageway in the excavated area, and marvel at the beautiful pottery, the two- and three-story houses (once decorated with wonderful wall-paintings) and the staircases.

Continue through the beautiful Santorini countryside to the village of Oia. Built on the northern part of the caldera rim, Oia is a place where many artists have found their inspiration. Enjoy the stunning views of the caldera, where many dwellings are built into niches of the volcanic rock. You?ll also have panoramic views of the rest of Santorini and the Aegean Sea.

Fira, your next stop, is the attractive capital of Santorini, perched on the caldera rim where the land slopes gently in one direction and falls steeply into the sea in the other.

Santorini Shore Excursion: Private Tour of Thira Volcano and Hot Springs

[Category: Shore Excursions]
While in port in Santorini, take a private shore excursion to explore the active volcano of Thira. Enjoy a boat trip to the volcano and soak up the stunning natural scenery as you walk around the crater and learn about past eruptions from your private guide. You?ll also relax in some natural hot springs, and enjoy port pickup and drop-off.

When your cruise ship docks at the Santorini port, you?ll be picked up by your guide for a boat trip to the active volcano of Thira. Follow your guide on a moderate walk to the top of the island and learn about the volcano?s 3,000-year history.

Hear about its last eruption in 1950 and discover the little-known fact that the archipelago of Santorini is the remnant of a volcanic caldera, meaning it was formed after an enormous volcanic explosion destroyed the formerly single island?s earliest settlements. As you walk, your guide will point out pieces of magma and fumes emitting from the crater.

Enjoy free time to take amazing panoramic photos before heading to some hot springs for a relaxing, reviving bath. These natural pools were created from volcanic activity and are said to have medicinal powers against skin and bone diseases.

At the end of you tour, you?ll be taken back to the Santorini port.

We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to the Santorini port for your ship?s departure.
