Santorini, a picturesque Greek island in the Aegean Sea, is renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty, stunning sunsets, and rich history. Here are some compelling reasons why you should consider visiting Santorini:

Mesmerizing Views: The island is famous for its iconic white-washed buildings with blue-domed roofs, set against the backdrop of the deep blue sea and the caldera. The panoramic views are simply breathtaking and provide excellent opportunities for photography and sightseeing.

Spectacular Sunsets: Santorini is celebrated for its awe-inspiring sunsets. Watching the sun dip below the horizon from one of the many vantage points on the island, such as Oia or Fira, is an unforgettable experience.

Unique Beaches: While the beaches in Santorini might not be the typical sandy stretches you'd find elsewhere, they offer their own unique charm. The Red Beach, Perissa Beach, and Kamari Beach are some of the notable ones, known for their distinct volcanic black or red sands.

Rich History and Culture: Santorini boasts a fascinating history, including its connection to the Minoan civilization and the ancient city of Akrotiri, often referred to as the "Minoan Pompeii."

Delicious Cuisine: Greek cuisine is celebrated worldwide, and Santorini offers a chance to savor authentic Greek flavors.

Charming Villages: The island is dotted with charming villages, each with its own unique character. Oia, with its stunning views and quaint streets, is particularly famous, but other villages like Fira, Imerovigli, and Pyrgos also have their own distinctive charm and appeal.

Wine Tasting: Santorini is known for its unique vineyards and wine production. The volcanic soil contributes to the distinct taste of the local wine varieties, making wine tasting a delightful and educational experience for visitors.

Overall, Santorini promises a blend of natural beauty, cultural richness, delectable cuisine, and a unique atmosphere that makes it a must-visit destination for travelers seeking an unforgettable and enriching vacation experience.

Join us for an exciting two-day tour to Santorini, the gem of the Aegean Sea.

Day 1

Embark at Heraklion port and enjoy a comfortable 2.5-hour high-speed boat journey to Santorini. Onboard, indulge in snacks and drinks from the snack bar while admiring the stunning sea views.

Arriving at Port Athinios in Santorini, hop on the guided tour buses and head to the first stop, the enchanting village of Oia. Spend 1 hour and 45 minutes exploring the mesmerizing blue and white streets, capturing breathtaking views of the volcanic Caldera and the Aegean Sea.

Next, the buses will take you to Fira, the main town of Santorini. Immerse yourself in its narrow streets, white vaulted houses, and iconic blue domes. Marvel at the magnificent panorama of the Caldera and the Volcano. In Fira, you will stay for about 1,5 hours.

You'll then have three options for the next 1.5 hours: embark on a wooden boat cruise to the volcano and hot springs (additional cost), or continue exploring Fira at your leisure.

Finally, check in at your hotel and relax in comfort after a day of exploration.

Day 2

Wake up to a delightful breakfast at your hotel and check out. Take some time to wander around independently, soaking in the beauty of Santorini.

Later, transfer back to Port Athinios by bus under the guidance of your tour representative. Board the return high-speed boat for a scenic 2-hour journey back to Heraklion port.

Experience the magic of Santorini, from its captivating villages to its volcanic beaches, archaeological sites, and renowned wineries. Transportation, boat tickets, hotel accommodation with breakfast, and port transfers are all provided for a seamless and unforgettable adventure.


At the conclusion of the tour, when the boat arrives back at Heraklion Port around 19:00, participants will board the buses and return to their respective hotels where they were initially picked up in the morning. The duration of the return journey to each hotel may vary depending on traffic conditions and the specific pick-up locations for each participant.

What a lovely place! The island is well known for its cosmopolitan lifestyle and this tour is an affordable way to take a taste from Mykonos! We didn't want the day to be over, but it did with overall satisfaction. The ride to Mykonos is by the fastest boat in the Mediterranean and it is so exciting to have experienced also that.
