Visit Points

Lighthouse of Akrotiri
  • Let us take you, in style, to one of the oldest and the most beautiful lighthouses in Greece and at the same time another picturesque spot on the map of Santorini. The lighthouse is situated on the edge of a high cliff right above the sea. It is a must visit location as it offers some impressive views over Santorini and the ruins of prehistoric Minoan city as it is located just a stone’s throw from the archaeological site of Akrotiri. The best time to visit the lighthouse is during sunset when you get the most impressive scenery of the island and sea soaked in orange and red colours.

    The lighthouse was built by a renowned French trading company in 1892 and during its first 100 years of operation was using petrol fuel as the main power source. Since the connection to electricity, the lighthouse has been operated electronically and emits a beam of light every 20 seconds.

    Visiting the lighthouse of Akrotiri is a part of our half day or sunset time tour, both of which are designed to take you to the most picturesque places on the island. Our experienced chauffeurs will drive you in the comfort of our VIP cars we have available.

Red Beach photo shooting visit
  • The Red Beach takes its name from the unique red colour of the surrounding cliffs and sand. Same as the whole landscape of Santorini, the beauty of the place was shaped by the volcanic eruptions. Despite a wild scenery, the beach is semi - organised with few beds and umbrellas. Book a luxurious private tour which includes visiting the Red Beach and enjoy an austere beauty out of this world. However, what is not out of this world is the VIP feeling you will have during all our elegant tours of Santorini. What is on offer is unparalleled!

Akrotiri Archaeological Site guided tour
  • Holidays in Santorini without visiting Akrotiri is like a trip to Athens without visiting Parthenon, it simply cannot be skipped! We offer you a comfortable and elegant ride to one of the oldest and most important archaeological sites in the Aegean, known as the “Greek Pompeii”. The prehistoric settlement, which by the end of third millennium BC became a wealthy and important harbour, was destroyed around 1600 BC by one of the largest volcanic eruptions in human history. There is a popular belief that the Minoan Bronze Age settlement of Akrotiri was the inspiration for Plato’s story of Atlantis, one of the unanswered mysteries of mankind.

    Akrotiri has been preserved down the centuries thanks to the volcanic ash that buried the prehistoric settlement. Extensive modern excavations that started in 1967 revealed the full value of the site with its stone paved streets, two- and three-story houses, frescoes depicting people and animals, wooden furniture and pottery telling a lot about the Ancient Greek societies. It looks like the citizens managed to escape their city before the final eruption and that is why no human remains were find on the site. Everything what was left behind told the scientists the story of highly developed community governed by democratic principles and intellectual ideas pertaining to social relationships. The inhabitants kept sheep and goats, planted wheat and barley, produced olive oil and wine, many of them were traders, mariners, farmers, craftsmen or artisans. The prehistoric Therans managed to establish the trade relations with Crete, mainland Greece, Cyprus, Syria and Egypt, while having themselves more time for pleasurable activities like art of good eating.

    As you walk through a maze of pathways the story of the great prehistoric civilisation unfolds in front of your eyes. It is a paradigm of a civilisation at its peak and its sad ending.

Black Sand Beach
  • Black sand can be found on many Santorini’s beaches where the sand is mixed with the pumice, the volcanic ash and the bits of solidified lava left by volcanic eruption that occurred 3,600 years ago. Having said that there are only few beaches which are solidly black and therefore a must-see.The most popular and well organised black beaches are Perissa Beach and Perivolos Beach, both located on the southeast coastline. There offer sunbeds and umbrellas, a wide selection of water sports as well as restaurants and cafes. Perivolos beach is very popular among young people because of abundance of beach bars and famous DJ guest appearances, while Perrisa with its water park is more popular among families with children. Our private beach tours will bring you to those amazing beaches in the most luxurious way possible, in the comfort of a safe and well equipped elegant car.

Monastery of Prophet Ilias
  • The monastery of Prophet Ilias, built in 1711 is a stunning example of Cycladic architecture. The monastery is perched on a mountain overlooking the whole area. During your tour around Santorini, we will take you there for a short stop to get a tremendous view from the highest point on the island.No better way to visit spiritual places than by reaching them in our exclusive cars.

Pyrgos
  • Walking or taking public transport to reach the highest village on the island does not sound very appealing but what if you can travel there in the most comfortable way? Our chauffeur will take you for a short trip to the traditional village of Pyrgos, the place that boasts the most amazing panoramic views of both sides of the island. The village gained well-deserved reputation of being “Hidden Gem” of Santorini due its authentic character, laid back atmosphere and marvellous location. Once you are in Pyrgos head to its highest point - the Venetian castle, where the view is unexampled.

    Take your time to wander through the narrow streets, grab a coffee or a snack, soak in the views and enjoy natural beauty present around every corner.
