Tour description

The tour starts from the outskirts of Emporio town, where we can admire the windmills, Emporio town , Pyrgos castle , some of the orthodox churches and the panoramic view of the Aegean beach to recharge our batteries.
Our tour continues through the fields and houses of local people, where we can also see some of the cave dwellings and a panoramic view of Akrotiri Castle , we will make a small stop at one of the island's inner viewpoints to have a beautiful view of the Caldera , from from here we continue to the town of Akrotiri. At this point we end the tour and have the option to visit the city and the castle inside or visit the archaeological site of Akrotiri.
Websites we will visit:

  • Windmills, Emporio.
  • Traditional Vineyards, Akrotiri.
  • Orthodox Church of Santa Anna, Akrotiri.
  • Almyrá Beach, Akrotiri.
  • Mirador Caldera, Akrotiri.


I recommend that this is your first tour as it will give you an idea of ​​how the island is made up, where the main cities are located and help you decide which places to visit depending on your time and preferences.
Also keep in mind that this is a small group tour focused on discovering nature and understanding its history.
At the end of the tour, you can take the local bus back to your place of stay.

¡Increíble! Aunque Carolina lleve tan sólo tres años en Santorini, la cantidad de información e historia aportada parece que lleve aqui toda la vida y todo, además, transmitido con pasión y una enorme sonrisa. Cómo si fuera poco, una vez concluido el tour, decenas de enlaces e información de sitios a donde ir para los restantes días en la isla. ¡Súper recomendable!

Me encantó conocer a Carolina: desde antes de llegar a Santorini se puso en contacto conmigo para ofrecerme su ayuda en lo que necesitara. El tour es como ella lo describe: un paseo entre el pueblo de Emporio y el campo, hablando de Historia, tradiciones locales y naturaleza, la parte más auténtica y desconocida de Santorini. Y como bien dice, hay que ir preparado con ropa y calzado cómodo. En fin, la visita fue como estar de paseo conversando con una amiga y se la recomiendo a todos aquellos que quieran conocer más de la isla Gracias Carolina! ☺️

Carolina es muy agradable, puntual y predispuesta a ayudarte en tu viaje incluso antes de llegar. Respecto al tour, se trata de una ruta de varias horas (nosotros éramos 8 personas y la ruta fue de laa 8:00 hasta las 13:00) por viñedos y tierra, en el que no hay sombras, por lo que en pleno agosto pasamos mucho calo. Vimos los molinos, diferentes tipos de viñedos, una casa cueva (el acceso es difícil) y una vista panorámica de la caldera. Carolina te explica la historia de la isla y muchos datos interesantes. Recomendamos ropa cómoda, deportivas, mucha agua, crema solar y gorro o gorra.
