A fantastic way to explore many parts of Santorini in one day. The tour combines various activities such as visiting an archeological site, time to relax at the beach, walking through towns, visiting a winery, free time in Oia and a great tour guide. Transportation is excellent and professional from start to finish. A well organised day!

What a place! We enjoyed hearing the history of this family’s vineyard, and you can see their pride in mannerisms. The fresh food we ate and listening to the local instruments made the experience so much more.

This was such a lovely experience! Walking through the vineyard, eating the home grown and prepared greek food and of course the delicious greek wine!

The guide Lili was great, very funny, entertaining and gave us a lot of information about the island. I would repeat with Lili again

Great guide, great food and tour of the old town/fortress.
