Santorini Private Tours

Updated: July 22, 2017

  • Private tours do cost more than group tours but they’re just about always worth the extra cost. (Even the most expensive tours will still be a small portion of what you paid to get here – yet will likely be the most memorable part of your trip.)
  • Book early. It’s easy to get last-minute tours as part of a group but there are surprisingly few private tours on Santorini and they get booked fast.

The 5 Best Private Tours in Santorini

All the tours below include hotel pickup and drop off (which is super helpful).

Private Half-Day Catamaran Cruise of Santorini

Wonderful boat tour of the volcano, hot springs, and caldera cliffs with swimming and snorkeling. Go pretty much anywhere you want with your private tour guide/captain. If this isn’t the highlight of your trip then I’d be surprised. Starts at 10am or 3pm. Delicious BBQ meal and unlimited drinks are included.

Grand Tour ‘Magnum’ Private Wine Tour

Visit five great Santorini wineries with 20 tastings, cheese, olives, and a full lunch. It’s 8 hours long so this is for pretty serious wine lovers but very well done and definitely worth the price. The tour finishes at a winery right on the caldera with incredible sunset views.

6-hour Best of Santorini Experience Tours

Tour the highlights of Santorini – from Akrotiri in the south to Oia at the northern most tip. In between you’ll visit beaches, churches, wineries, and historical sites. Professional guide is top notch.

30 Minute Private Helicopter Flight

Incredible views of the caldera, volcano, cliffs, beaches, and neighboring islands. Very cool and highly recommended.

Highlights of Santorini 5-Hour Photography Tour

If you want to get the top shots of Santorini this is how you do. Olaf (the guide) is super friendly and an A-plus-plus photographer – be ready to learn a lot whether you’re a beginner or advanced photographer. Tour the most spectacular views from all over the island. The tour starts at 9:30am and there’s a 6-hour option available as well.

    Visiting Santorini in early September. Seems like everything is just about fully booked but have found a space for the private catamaran tour. Just wanted to confirm that this is a kid and family-friendly tour of the caldera with swimming and fun stuff.
