Santorini & Mykonos Tours
Mykonos and Santorini, the two most important and most touristic islands of Greece, giving you the chance to feel yourself in different worlds.
Santorini erupts with charm. A volcano embraced by the Aegean, this island-phenomenon in the Cyclades gives its visitors a mythical experience.
Santorini – also known as Thera in Greek – is the island immortalized by poets and painters, thanks to its celebrated light, multi-coloured cliffs and picture-perfect sunsets. On this island all senses are magnified, a product of its many contrasts: black earth against whitewashed homes clinging to the cliffside, or wild volcanic sculptures against sleek Cycladic lines.
Red and black rocks create a wild landscape around the crater on Nea Kameni, a small island at the centre of the caldera. From the top of a volcano with a 2.5 million-year history, you have an incredible view of the caldera. The myth that Santorini is the ancient city of Atlantis, which submerged over 9,500 years ago, comes to life before your eyes.
Santorini is one of the most luxurious destinations in Greece. Plunge into one of the infinity pools that flirt with the edge of the cliff, the Aegean laid out in front of you in all its glory. Relax on a sun bed, refreshing cocktail in your hand. Enjoy a massage in your suite and a dip in your jacuzzi.
Candle-lit terraces glimmer when the sun dips behind the volcano. An intimate dinner for two, paired with a fine wine from a world-renowned volcanic vineyard and views of the caldera. Holidays at Santorini’s luxurious hotels and restaurants will certainly bring your dreams to life.
Everyone has heard of Mykonos, the most famous island in the Aegean and the most popular destination in Greece, and in the world, for travellers of all types. Satisfy your appetite for luxury and adventure in this cosmopolitan island that provides whatever you desire! It has been attracting well-heeled Athenians and international celebrities like a magnet since 1960.
Voted the top summer holiday destination time and again for good reason: exceptional beaches, award-winning restaurants, legendary parties, expensive yachts, dreamy villas, luxury hotels, beautiful people, 5 star service. Mykonos will seduce you. Awash in its iridescent Aegean light, which it shares with neighbouring Delos, you will be transformed. Put your finger on its pulse and you’ll fall hopelessly in love.
It’s hard to imagine a time when Mykonos was a humble little island, without electricity, just a layover on the way to famous Delos. Things changed in the 1950s, with the arrival of the likes of Aristotle Onassis, Maria Callas, Jackie O, Marlon Brando, Grace Kelly, Princess Soraya, Elizabeth Taylor, Nureyev, Pierre Cardin, Stavros Niarchos… Legendary names of the international jet set became associated with Mykonos and the island quickly became the favoured holiday destination in Greece for the super-rich, artists and movie stars.
And the list of celebrities continues to grow: Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks, Shakira, Lady Gaga, Steven Spielberg, Monica Bellucci, Liam Neeson, Hugh Jackman, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones, Clive Owen, Jean Paul Gaultier, Giorgio Armani, Russell Crowe…
Sparkling white with a blue Aegean backdrop, the island’s architecture is one of a kind. It extends into the little neighbourhoods of the island’s main town, Hora, with captains’ homes, old churches and wells. Everywhere you look, there’s a maze of white-washed alleyways. In Gialos you’ll find the famous pelicans, as well as Agios Nikolaos Tis Kadenas, the Town Hall of 1780, and the imposing Mavrou school. Through Barkias you will reach the Church of Panagia Paraportiani, a complex of five churches, completed in the 17th century.
Perhaps one of the most photographed spots on the island, Little Venice is made up of homes that were built in the 18th century and have their foundations in the sea. It has been said that behind these doors above the waterline, pirates would store their loot. Today they have been converted to bars and restaurants and the view of the sparkling Aegean Sea from their balconies is dazzling. Mykonos’ other main attraction is its Windmills, which stand facing the sea and at night are beautifully lit up. Powered by the north wind, these windmills used to ground grain into flour until the early 20th century.
