About the tour

Discover Santorini through a tour in Fira, the island's capital and most important village. Fira is perched on the edge of an impressive cliff of 260m high and offers a splendid panorama over the submerged volcano, still active today. Explore the cobbled streets, and admire the fusion of the characteristic Cycladic architecture featuring white cubical houses and blue-domed churches and the colorful Venetian architecture. You will learn about the volcanic eruption that happened thousands of years ago and shaped Santorini as we know it today. You will get to see, layer upon layer of red volcanic rock forming a visual demonstration found nowhere else on earth. Panos will take you on a walk at the edge of the cliff, overlooking the villages that look like they are hanging in the air and the caldera of Santorini. He will also share his passion and deep knowledge of local products and the unique wines of Santorini that owe their characteristic flavors to the island's volcanic soil. Take in the breath-taking views and feel the most iconic Greek island's ambiance through this truly unique virtual tour.


Meet your local guide

Panos

Born and raised in the Athenian coast, the centre of the city has always been Pano's second home. Interested in gastronomy, wine and culture, plus being a musician at the same time, he have experienced every aspect of this evolving metropolis. After a 3 year brake due to seasonal work in the volcanic paradise of Santorini island, it was time for him to return home and rediscover all those remarkable secrets of the Greek capital. Sharing the knowledge as a local, focusing on the experience rather than the textbook has always been his forte. Enjoy the ride!

Panos has been guiding since Apr 2015

Fantastic tour. Some lovely opportunities for postcards and Panos gives lots of information about beautiful Santorini. I have done the tour a couple of times and could never tire of the view. Panos is very knowledgeable and gives ample time to take postcards and ask questions etc.

A very enjoyable tour with lots of interesting facts given. I spent hours reading about the Santorini eruption and it's various impacts around the world. Now I know it's good for diving, snorkeling and hiking as well as being beautiful, I will definitely be visiting soon. 😊
