Excursions in Santorini

Excursions in Santorini during a Mediterranean cruise

Santorini shore excursion

from €35 per person

This shore excursion is exclusively designed for cruise passengers visiting the island of Santorini. In 5 to 6 hours you will see and visit the highlights of this stunning island. The tour is specially designed to visit the island in a comfortable way.

Your Santorini shore excursion will start at the cruise port of Santorini. Your guide will welcome you down at the port close to the tender boat station. From there you continue by private tender for a 5 minute boat trip to Athinaio where the bus will wait for you. A big advantage because you don’t have to climb the steep cliffs (566 steps!) or have to queue at the cable car station.

Together with your guide you will explore the most interesting places of the small island. You will see the charming Oia, the small capital of Fira and the beautiful Pyrgos. At Agios Nektarios, a famous local Wine Estate, you can taste some great local wines (optional). And if there's time you can visit Kamari, the famous Black sand beach of Santorini.

During this fascinating shore excursion your guide will tell you about the history, culture and way of life of this particular volcanic island. The total duration of the tour depends on how long your ship is staying in port. It will last between 5 and 6 hours.

You Santorini shore excursion ends in Fira, on top of the majestic cliffs. To get back to your cruise ship you can walk down the steps to the tender boat station or take the cable car (optional).
