First stop with this guided tour will be the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri that is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. A city that has remained alive for 3.500 years beneath the lava, tells its story to today’s visitors. A visit to Akrotiri is the best way to witness the unique connection of the island of Santorini with the volcano. The multi- floored public buildings, drainage facilities, stables, food stores, workshops of all sorts of art, textiles, metallurgy, shipbuilding and other specialties are standing all over the site.

During your transfer from Akrotiri to Oia you will have the chance to see most of the majestic views of the Island as you cross. Next, we get to visit the sophisticated and charming village of Oia situated at the north point of Santorini, which goes beyond all expectations. Oia hosts the most magnificent views over the volcanic islets and caldera, as well as demonstrating wealth from its commercial trading days by its marble flooring, art galleries and jewelry shops. Its colorful cycladic architecture as well 52 blue domes are truly memorable.

Our family just returned from an amazing trip to Greece.  We traveled with our two children, ages 11 and 7. Mariza Anyfanti, tour guide and archaeologist, accompanied us for a half day tour of Athens and a 3 day trip to Meteora and Delphi.  We were highly impressed with the type of service that Mariza provided for our family.  She is an expert in her field and loves what she does. She was professional, punctual, kind to our children, and very knowledgeable on every single place we visited. We could not have asked for a better tour guide. Our driver, Yiannis, showed the same type of professionalism. He was courteous, kind, always on time and flexible to our needs since we had two children with us. His car was impeccable and he had water, etc readily available if needed. He knew the area we traveled to very well and was able to point out many places of interest because of his experience in traveling the area. We would highly recommend Mariza and Yiannis.

Hellenic Tours did a great job working with our travel agent in the States to plan a great first trip to Greece. In each stop we were greeted with either a welcome packet from Hellenic Tours or a friendly face to give us an overview of our stay.
