About the ride
If you have limited time in Santorini, or if you want a detailed overview of the best sights before planning the rest of your visit, then our ‘Santorini Highlights’ tour is the ideal one for you. At the beginning of the tour your Welcome driver will pick you up directly from your accommodation, and take you on your tailor-made journey through the most iconic, historically significant and beautiful sights in Santorini. Although your tour is completely customizable, and points of interest can be added or taken away, the following itinerary is one we suggest.
You will begin your tour at the stunning Red and Black beaches of Santorini. The Red Beach is world famous and definitely a wonderful photo opportunity while on the island. The Black Beach of Perivolos is the largest beach on Santorini and gets its color from the black volcanic pebbles that cover its shores. This stop is the perfect place to relax, soak up the sun, gaze out across the Aegean Sea and enjoy a few fresh snacks at the seaside restaurants.

Frequently asked questionsExpand
What happens after I book?
Once you complete your booking you will receive an email with more details about the Santorini Highlights tour, your Welcome driver, and any more information you need to know regarding this experience. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at email@example.com for any specific questions regarding the experience.
Can I customize the tour based on my needs?
Of course, that is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.
Will there be an official tour guide?
An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience is centered around the driver and the local’s perspective. Although the drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of visit, at no point can they be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in depth information regarding historic facts and information. If you would like to include an official tour guide in the experience please let us know via email after the booking is completed.
Do I need to be in a good physical shape?
The drivers are trained to adapt the experience depending on the type of participants. Whether you have kids or elders participating, the drivers know exactly how to handle special requests and provide an enjoyable experience accordingly.
DRESS MODESTLY FOR RELIGIOUS MONUMENTS
When visiting religious monuments please dress modestly, or bring extra layers to cover up at that particular point of the tour.
Comfortable Clothes & Shoes
We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing and good walking shoes since certain areas, may have uneven or rocky ground.
Be aware of the summer heat
In the summer months be sure to wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and perhaps a hat, to shield yourself from the sun. We also recommend staying hydrated throughout the tour with the water provided.
Bring cash in the form of local currency (Euros), as many of the local vendors don’t accept card payments.
Accesibility & Special Needs
Please let us know if anyone in your group has special needs, or specific accessibility require-ments, and we will be sure to accommodate your needs and tailor the tour accordingly.
