This tour is specially designed to avoid queuing up at the cable car and getting to Oia within a short period of time, giving you a very good chance not to be there later on when it’s crowded. The tour emphasizes in Oia village, where you will spend a total of 2.5 hours but also includes a visit at the Lost Atlantis Museum and the Blue Domes in Firostefani. Tour ends in Fira where you can spend time before taking the cable car back to the Old port.

Your qualified fluent in English tour director will be waiting to welcome you at the pier of the Old port at the point where your ship’s tender boats will let you off. Instead of taking the cable car, enjoy 20 minutes of cruising along the coastline of the 1,000 feet cliff on the gulf of the Caldera with the private boat that we will charter for our guests. As we understand that your limited time at the island is precious, we try to minimize all delays and this private boat will be only for our guests, and the tour will start at the designated time without any delays. Admire the spectacular view of the island from sea level, as the black cliff towers above you and take pictures of the houses that hang like grapes from the edge of the cliff.

You will then arrive at Ammoudi, the picturesque fishing port of Oia. It will take you less than 10 minutes with your private Mercedes Sprinter minibus to drive up to the village of Oia. Your local expert tour director will orientate you and give you information about the island of Santorini and Oia village, and then you will be free to wander around and explore on your own. The village of Oia is full of narrow streets, which typifies the white-painted houses of the Cyclades. In many cases they are built directly into niches which are cave houses used by the crew of the ships, on the lip of the volcanic crater, between which are narrow alleys and blue-roofed churches with cupolas and neoclassical mansions that used to be captain’s houses in the 19th century.

Then you will drive south and visit the interactive Lost Atlantis museum. A tour at the Lost Atlantis Museum is sure to be insightful and will quench visitors' thirst for both culture and mythology. Through a variety of digital installations and engaging presentations, you will embark on a journey alongside the great Greek philosopher Plato. He comes to life in an animated hologram and gives you the chance to ask and learn more about his philosophy. He also reveals his inspiration for the ideal city through an interactive fresco. A series of interactive videos presents the Minoan history of Santorini and the evidence for the connection between its volcanic eruption and the Lost Atlantis myth. A holographic representation showcases the topography of Santorini and the largest Atlantis diorama in the world introduces the everyday life of its people. Last but not least, a 9D experience will surprise you as you can witness the destruction of Atlantis with all your senses.

After you gather all together again, you will drive towards Fira. Once back at Fira your tour director will show you the way to the cable car, and also provide you a map of Fira, in case you would like to spend some time exploring the alleys.

Your transportation vehicle will be an agile Mercedes Sprinter or similar minibus, driven by an experienced professional non-smoking driver. Throughout the tour you will be accompanied by a fluent in English qualified tour director, who will provide interesting commentary on board. Your tour director will give you a tour of Oia village and the winery. Smaller vehicles may be used for 6 or less participants.

The price includes land transportation, the boat transfer to Ammoudi port, throughout escorting by an English speaking tour director, as well as the entrance tickets for the Lost Atlantis Museum.

Food, beverages, gratuities and return tickets for the cable car are not included.

Important note: We feel obliged to notify the travellers that are wishing to visit Santorini island in a day's excursion from a cruise ship, as there are certain dates during the season that their cruise ship will arrive along with 2, 3 or more cruise ships. Having in mind that Santorini is a small island and with small villages and narrow roads, at these specific dates the places visited are bound to get very crowded. Even on those dates, we can guarantee the implementation of our excursion's itinerary and returning on time to get back to your cruise ship. On the other hand we cannot do anything about the crowded areas, eg streets of Oia, Old Port etc, that will not allow our guests to enjoy the magnificent environment the island offers as they should. Nevertheless we promise to do our best efforts for our guests to experience the best Santorini has to offer.
