What To Expect
Could Santorini be "Atlantis"?
Uncover the myths of Santorini on a 5-hour guided tour of the Akrotiri excavations, a prehistoric Bronze Age city, frozen in time by ash that fell during the Minoan volcanic eruption 3,600 years ago. Some speculate that this is the origin of Atlantis, a mythical city, lost in time.
Admire the elaborate drainage system, the sophisticated multi-storied buildings and their magnificent wall paintings, and excavated furniture and vessels that show the former settlement's great prosperity.
Discover evidence of wine-making that has been estimated to date back to the 3rd Millennium BC, making Santorini one of the oldest wine-making regions in the world.
Continue your wine discovery by strolling through the island's basket vines at 3 wineries, and learn about Santorini's unique viticulture traditions. Taste a selection of 12 different wine styles from across Santorini and Greece, such as Assyrtiko, Nykteri, and the sublimely sweet Vinsanto wine.
The tour ends at your hotel or at the cable car terminal in Fira (for cruise passengers).
