Journey around Greece's most popular island in relaxed comfort to hear and see the most visited sites. Your small group will enjoy direct contact with your guide as you travel over the roads of the island which offers interesting and surprising terrains.

Your first stop is a visit to the traditional village for a chance to walk the streets and soak in the local culture before heading over to the famous archaeological site of Akrotiri also known as "Minoan Pompeii". This location was destroyed and covered by the ashes of an enormous volcanic eruption in 1450 BC and you will be escorted by an expert through the settlement via a multi-story building and magnificent paintings of the Minoan civilization. There are indications that this civilization reached its peak a little before it was destroyed by the volcano.

Next you will take off for a chance to dig your toes into the sand at the famous black beach that perfectly juxtaposes the crystal blue waters along the south eastern coast of the island.

Ready to taste some of Santorini's local wines? At a family-owned winery you will learn about ancient to modern-day wine making involved in the local viticulture. The tastings will be accompanied by a light meal of traditional dishes. The famous wines of this region are a direct result of the island's unique climate and mineral content of its volcanic soil. Having 3,000 years of wine making experience doesn't hurt either!

There will be lots to talk about as you return to your starting point.

Shore Excursions

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.
