Famous for dramatic views, stunning sunsets from Oia town, black sand beaches, the town of Thira, and its very own active volcano, legend also claims that the island's sunsets are some of the most spectacular in the world.

This tour will take you to Santorini's highest peak, crowned by the Mount Profitis Ilias Monastery. At 883 feet, Mt. Profitis Ilias' rugged landscape is largely composed of volcanic rocks as a result of hundreds of eruptions during the last two million years, some of them being large caldera-forming events. Here, in this remote spot, you'll have an ideal photo opportunity to capture the beauty of this ancient island.

Next, you'll discover the village of Pyrgos, which was the capital of Santorini until 1800. Here, you'll be able to admire the beautiful old houses and the Venetian Fortress crowned by several churches. Explore this typical example of a fortified Cycladic village, with great panoramic views all around the coast.

Your tour then takes you to one of the island's most famous modern wineries. Viniculture is an ancient art in Santorini, and the fact that vines thrive at all is amazing considering the fact that the island has limited water resources. Fortunately, the volcanic soil is an excellent medium for producing grapes, especially the Assyrtiko grape--a rare, white variety.

After your visit to the winery, you'll drive through the countryside to visit Oia. This traditional Greek village of whitewashed cubes is perched impossibly high on cliffs at the northwest tip of the island. Take in the stunning views of the island from one of the charming cafés or stroll above the rooftops of the homes carved into the cliffs and gaze into the deep blue waters of the caldera far below.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
