About Your Trip
Grab your camera and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime as you take in the one-of-a-kind sights of Santorini*, from ancient villages and castle ruins to a unique black beach and a mountaintop monastery. Along the way, you’ll savor local flavors with a specially prepared “country-style” lunch with a view of the Aegean Sea, stop at a winery for a fun tasting experience and take in a spectacular sunset from a dramatic viewpoint in coastal Oia.
*As a volcanic island, much of Santorini features towering cliffs, uneven streets and a rugged landscape. This DreamTrip includes walking over rough terrain, as well as up and down stairs, and is not recommended for guests with mobility issues and certain health conditions. Please consult your physician prior to booking.
What we love:
Santorini is consistently ranked one of the most beautiful islands in the world, drawing a couple million visitors each year to see spectacular sunsets from cliff-top vantage points, including the village of Oia.
Oia also famously features whitewashed houses, blue-domed roofs and labyrinthine streets that are perfect for exploring. It’s one of the most photographed places in Santorini.
At 1,860 feet (567 meters) in height, Profitis Ilias delivers awe-inspiring views of Santorini island in all directions.

Hotel Check-in Requirements:
By booking this DreamTrip I understand that the hotel may request a credit card upon check-in. The hotel may request the credit card in order to: a) place a monetary hold of US$50-200; or b) hold for incidental, security or other charges. By booking, I acknowledge having received notice of this potential charge and accept that Rovia™ recommends a credit card rather than a debit or bank card be used in the event the hotel requests the card.
I understand that any such request made by the hotel is outside of the control of Rovia and is strictly a hotel policy. Should I have questions concerning the hotel’s policy, I accept responsibility for contacting the hotel independent of Rovia.
Please note: As of January 1, 2018, the Greek Ministry of Tourism has enforced an “Overnight Stay Tax,” a charge that is applicable to tourists and which must be collected by the hotel upon check-in. This tax is dependent upon the star rating of the hotel and may vary between high and low seasons. This is a government implemented charge beyond the control of Rovia. Payment of this tax is the sole responsibility of the individual tourist; should the policy change, we will inform you and update this information.
For peace of mind, why not consider an optional travel insurance plan through Travel Guard? Offering assistance with common travel problems like flight delays or lost luggage, Travel Guard can help you start your next adventure prepared for the unexpected!
Please be aware that travel insurance will be your only option for any waived penalties, or a refund, if your DreamTrip is cancelled due to restrictions in your starting location (not in your travel destination) and you are inside the cancellation window (see Terms and Conditions). Rovia will cover only those cancellations that result from restrictions in your DreamTrip destination.
At the time of booking, you will see a page with your order number and trip cost. This is your confirmation. Please retain and bring this information with you on your trip.

Each individual, including each child, who is coming along with you on your DreamTrip is required to have a booking prior to the commencement of the trip.
