Oia Walking Tour on Santorini

Pink bougainvillea is popular in Santorini
Explore Oia, Santorini's picture-perfect village, with a local guide. Dramatically perched atop the cliffs of the caldera, this scenic town contrasts famously against its natural surroundings. Rusty rocks and azure-blue waves complement its pastel cave houses, whitewashed facades, and colorful harbor. Enjoy strolling through the charming streets while admiring the views over the Caldera and volcanic islands.

Oia is the most-visited and most-photographed spot on Santorini. But although summer sunsets turn this town into a sea of people, the popular lookouts aren't actually home to the island's best sunset views! So instead, your tour guide will take you around Oia while avoiding the hordes of tourists and finding those secret hideouts for sea and sunset views.

As you walk through the main streets and back alleyways of this enchanting village, your guide will make several stops to point out exceptional viewpoints and interesting island history. First, listen to stories about Oia's culture and heritage, then discover the picturesque fishing harbor of Ammoudi. Then, descend 300 steps along the caldera's rim, ending at a small port untouched by time. Finally, end the tour with a delicious brunch at a local cafe restaurant with great views!
