Santorini Unique Experience Tours offers private and custom tours in Santorini. You will travel around the island in style and comfort aboard a luxury Mercedes minibus. Your experienced guide will share with you many points of interest along the way and you will appreciate the extra care and comfort of the luxury vehicle.  With a customised itinerary that is tailored to suit your needs and interests, spend your day in Santorini visiting the cultural, historical and natural landmarks that interest you the most. During your tour, speak with your private driver-guide about the types of things you would like to see so that the logistics can be arranged.

On the day of your tour, meet your guide at your Santorini hotel and then set off in a premium, air-conditioned vehicle. During your custom tour, perhaps visit some of the island’s must-see attractions like the archaeological site at Akrotiri, Megalochori, Emporio, Black Beach Perivolos, Mountain of Profitis Elias, Pyrgos Village, Wine Tasting, Imerovigli Village and Oia Village.

The first stop is Megalochori, which is one of the most traditional villages on the Island. Our guide will take you through the narrow streets where you will have the opportunity to admire the traditional architecture of the village.

Leaving Megalochori you will visit the archaeological site at Akrotiri, an ancient Minoan settlement and one of the most important ancient sites on Santorini. It is located on the southern side of the island. Buried by the volcanic eruption 3600 years ago was discovered in 1967 nearby the modern village Akrotiri. Here you will learn the myths and facts about Santorini. Then, you will go to the Black Beach of Perivolos, a beach with black sand where you will stay for approximately 2 hours and have free time to go for a swim, eat in a local tavern, or just relax and explore the area.

You will continue on to visit the 16th-century monastery of Profitis Elias which was built on the highest panoramic view of the whole island. After the Monastery, you will continue to the village Pyrgos, with its Cycladic architecture, Byzantine churches and a Venetian castle. The village is one of the highest points of the island and the view is amazing overlooking the northwestern part of Santorini.

From Pyrgos you will continue your tour visiting a traditional Santorini winery, you will taste the wines of Santorini and admire the volcanic landscape.

Next stop Imerovigli, an old village built on the Caldera. There you will also find Skaros, a grand rock and the remnants of the fortress. You will have again the opportunity to walk around and explore the village and take plenty of photos.

The last stop of our trip is the beautiful village of Oia (northernmost village of the island), which has a magnificent view over the caldera and volcano and has one of the most famous sunsets in the world. The atmosphere, when the sun sets into the sea is stunning and many artists come to Oia to get inspiration from the beauty of the landscape, architecture and the sunset. After sunset, you will board the minivan which takes you back to the point you started from.

From beginning to end our tours are created with love, compassion and forethought and are perfect for world travelers, families and corporate groups. We look forward to exceeding your expectations every step of the way!
