After your tender drops you off at the port of Athinios, you'll drive to Pyrgos village, one of the oldest settlements and the highest village on the island. Admire the beautiful old houses and the Venetian fortress crowned by several churches. From Pyrgos Square the road runs uphill to the Monastery of the Prophet Elijah, the highest point of the island. From here, the views out over the caldera are majestic. Leaving Pyrgos you head to the northern end of Santorini to the village of Oia, which offers magnificent views of the caldera and the rest of the other islands. With its cobblestone streets, beautiful old mansions and houses perched on the cliffside, you'll realize why the traditional Cycladic architecture is so well known. Here you'll have free time to stroll around the narrow streets with the old beautiful houses and the tiny picturesque shops. Then, leaving the village of Oia, make your way to one of Santorini's most renowned Greek tavernas, characterized by its unique Cycladic architecture and breathtaking views of the caldera where you'll enjoy dinner, music and dances. Experience a typical Greek fiesta dancing to 'Zorba the Greek' and breaking plates while the bouzouki plays its solo. After a buffet-style dinner, you'll continue to Fira town, the picturesque capital of the island built on the rim of the caldera wall. Enjoy the town at leisure before returning to your ship.
Note: Tour participation is limited. Tour involves walking for approximately ½ mile on level and cobblestone streets. Not recommended for guests on wheelchairs. Temperatures can reach extreme highs during summer months; we recommend that you drink a lot of water and use suitable sun protection. Most tours end in Fira where you'll board a cable car to return to the pier (cable car ticket will be provided). Lines for the cable car are very long, especially during summer months or when there are several ships in port; please allow sufficient time to return to the tender landing pier. Online price is inclusive of the Pre-book and Save offer.

The excursion was enjoyable and our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. Santorini was beautiful, but there is way more walking than described and there are many steps. This tour should not be taken by anyone with any walking difficulties. Also, the way the tour is conducted, most of the walking is uphill. The dinner with the dancing was awesome!
