Description

Your Cruising Excursions representative will meet you at Fira port (the old port). As this port is tendered, you'll need to take the cable car/lift to the port entrance.

The tour will start with a scenic journey to Oia, admiring the panoramic view of the Aegean Sea and the neighbouring islands along the way. Oia enjoys a hilltop location, which offers breath-taking views across the Gulf of Santorini. This beautiful village, with its narrow streets, traditional white churches and blue domes, provides a picture postcard vision of the Greek Islands.

The tour will stop in Oia for you to enjoy the surroundings, or to do a little souvenir shopping. Here you will be able to get some of the famous photographs you will see in all brochures of Santorini with the blue domes and white houses, the views are breath-taking and not to be missed.

You will then be taken to the archaeological gem of Akrotiri, a site that was buried by the theran eruption in the middle of the 3rd millennium BC. Here you will be given a guided tour of the excavations by your guide with full explanations of the history and the current excavation work that is being carried out.

After the tour of the ancient Akrotiri site the tour will continue to the capital of Santorini, Fira, for a stop at a local winery. Santorini is famous for producing wine and here you will be able to taste three different kinds. You will first be given a guided tour of the winery with a brief explanation of how the wine is produced before sitting down to sample the produce.

With numerous photo opportunities and a knowledgeable, professional guide, this tour really shows you the best of Santorini. You won't be disappointed!
