Amazing way to spend an afternoon in Santorini! The wineries were beautiful and the wine was delicious, but it was our guide Mary and the staff at each of the wineries who really made the tour special. Mary had so much knowledge of Greece’s wine history to share with us and we learned so much during our tour. Highly recommend booking this tour if you’re interested in trying local wines while in Santorini.

The tour guide Ms. Kim is just the perfect tour guide ever. The tour was very informative and we learned a lot about Santorini. Very enjoyable experience. I highly recommend it

The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable and provided additional insights on living in Santorini. The bus driver was superb in handling the narrow streets of Santorini.

Kim and George are such amazing hosts! Had an incredible day site-seeing and the food at Perissa beach and also made some new friends.

You will need to check out your hotel location, esp when you stay at Cave House which transport cannot be reached.
