A Santorini Half-Day Tour Done in Luxury, Your Way

Top attractions in Santorini, such as red and black sand beaches and archaeological relics, await on this private, half-day tour that takes six hours. Hop onto a minibus, enjoy the air conditioning and gorgeous views, and relax as you’re whisked to sights that many travelers never see.


  • Prioritize and customize the areas you want to visit. If you love beaches, you may prefer to spend more time at the red and black sand beaches, or if culture is your passion, more time in Pyrgos or in Megalochori could be right up your alley.
  • Take in views from Santorini’s highest peaks, such as Mt. Prophet Ilias, and snap photographs on the scenic drive that will wow everyone.
  • Enjoy archaeological ruins at Akrotiri and sigh over the beauty of the whitewashed houses in Oia.
  • Design the tour your way, or let the guide customize it for you.

Tour Description

Have you been on tours where the guides’ eyes seemed to glaze over as they recited boring fact after fact that did not interest you? None of that is what a Santorini private tour should be about. That’s why our tours include flexible itineraries that you can customize if you like. You can even arrange a tour so that you get to see the sunset in Oia! As for where you start the tour, you can hop onto the minibus from a hotel, port or airport. After the tour, we will drop you off at the place of your choosing. From start to finish, the choices are yours.

Many of our tours make a first stop in Oia. This picturesque village is a great place to get out of the bus for the breathtaking views of the Aegean. If you’re itching to shop, you can do that here too. The sunsets in this village are fabulous, which is why some people prefer to make Oia their last stop.

Other notable stops on a Santorini sightseeing tour tend to include a winery such as Estate Argyros or Venetsanos Winery. If you love wine and the process of how it’s made, you definitely need to stop at one of these places.

Many travelers also visit the highest peak of the island, where they find the Prophet Elias Monastery and leave with a new appreciation of Santorini. Of course, photographs are what bring past memories back to life, and we have that covered with our Santorini half-day tour. The Blue Dome Church in Firostefani villages, red beaches, and black beaches are among these picturesque stops. At the beaches, you can swim and grab a bite to eat if you want (the dining is not included in the tour price). To get an idea of what life is like in Greece, stop by Megalochori village for a wander.

Review for Santorini Full Day Tour
Beautiful Day in Santorini

My daughter and I spent a lovely day on Santorini with our guide Katherine and driver Alex. Katherine picked us up at the top of the funicular (we left our cruise ship as early as possible on a tender) and actually arrived a little early – a miracle. Our first stop was Oia, a gorgeous city with a wealth of blue domed churches to photograph and beautiful scenery. Katherine walked us up and down the main street, giving us history and anecdotes and taking lots of pictures of us since her hobby is photography. Pyrgos was a lovely, uncrowded town and the lunch at 41 on the Black Sand Beach was very good with a stunning view. A very relaxing day with a great guide and driver, followed by a long line to descend the funicular.

Half day Santorini private tour

We booked online a half-day trip for a group of six people with Santorini private tours. They take us from JTR airport. The driver drove us to the hidden places of Santorini. The minibus was new with leather seats and very spacious, with good air conditioning. We had a great tour!

Review for Santorini Full Day Tour
Totally enjoyable after the dreaded hike!

After hiking up the hill with mules everywhere (not a fun experience) our tour guide, Stefanos met us at the top and he and his driver took us on a wonderful tour of the island. We started out in Fira and then to Oia and although we didn’t see the sunset we avoided the crowds and got some beautiful pictures. We then traveled to the monastery at the highest point on the island, although cloudy it was fun. We then went to a black sand beach and had a wonderful dinner at a restaurant called Forty One on the beach. On returning to Fira town we saw a wonderful start to the sunset and after departing our tour and descending down the hill to the dock we saw another beautiful sunset. Stefanos and the driver (forgot his name) were knowledgeable and kept us laughing and interested the entire trip. Highly recommend this excursion. (Hint he’s from Canada)
