The pickup point for cruise ship passengers is the exit of the cable car in Fira (on the top). Your guide will have a sign written your name. The pickup service is also available at your accommodation and the airport.
Your tour starts as your local expert picks you up from your hotel or meeting place in Fira. After settling on a final list of stops, you will embark on your Greek experience in comfort and safety as you travel to Oia Village for a little souvenir shopping. 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.

Nicholas did a great job for us. Arrived right on time, gave us both guidance and flexibility. Just what we wanted
We were able to change times to start when our ferry times changed with local strikes. Driver had excellent knowledge and was able to adapt tour when we described our wishes. He gave us several options and managed to fit all our requests in including the sunset giving us extended time on original booking. Highly recommended. We did this at the start of a 5 day stay and it was perfect to get bearings, see what we wanted to and not compete with others on a larger tour bus for photo opportunities etc.
We could not have had a more knowledgable guide (Nicholas, I believe his name was) who customized our tour based on our preferences away from “tourists.” He was very polite, spoke excellent English & a very safe driver. At one point we were on our way to Oia & waited in traffic; he recommended turning around to return later when the traffic died down otherwise it could cut into our trip (he was very cognizant of our time as we were on a cruise)…had we been on a coach tour, that would not have been an option. Off we went to Art Space Winery where we sampled wine after hearing about the history of their wine making & toured the gallery of original works of art. As we drove around & visited Santorini, Thira & Oia our guide told us about the history, the people & the country he so dearly loved. The booking & the offerings from GetYourGuide was so easy to arrange & we highly recommend!
The driver was a very pleasant man and took us to the places we asked to see. We really just ended up paying for a chauffeur there was not much tour aspect to it.
Constantinos is an amazing tourguide! he brought us to the most exquisite places in the island. He is very knowledgable and knows almost everything about the island. He made our trip extra special!
