George and Tonia were excellent guide team, that picked us up at our Hotel, and told us about Santorini and their traditions as we travel to our destinations. Akrotiri was interesting, as we love to do the historical related destination when we travel Europe. The Lost Atlantis was very interesting to us, and was something we could have easily done on our own. The vineyard and wine tasting was by far the best part of this tour for us. We really enjoyed this activity, and Tonia actually taught us about the differences in the wines and how to properly taste a wine. We have done numerous wine tour/tastings and never learned as much as we did with Tonia. We really enjoyed talking with George and Tonia while we drove to different stops and learned more about the Santorini culture, and the wine tasting. They both made this tour enjoyable with their hospitality and I would recommend their business, Santorini Wine Stories, for any of their tours they provide. George and Tonia, Thanks Again!!!

This tour is totally worth it! Tonia and George are amazing hosts. Not only were they extremely nice and welcoming, but they were a wealth of knowledge about the island. We learned so much! Akrotiri was an incredible site to see, being able to walk among a piece of history. The Lost Atlantis Museum was fun, a combo of history and cheesy interactives. But by far our favorite part of the tour was the wine tasting. Tonia and George gave us a full tour of the vineyard. The wines were fantastic, and Tonia knew everything about them. We could have hung out with them at the winery all day! In summary, book this tour!! It was a wonderful experience all around!

Tonya and George are the not only very informative but they are truly beautiful inside and out. Their hospitality was greatly appreciated. We highly recommend this tour for both lovers of history and wine. The winery we visited is among the top award winning vintners in Santorini. Thank you again.

George and Antonia were amazing. Their passion for sharing a little bit of the Santorini culture with visitors was greatly appreciated. The tour stops were very interesting and of course top it all off with some wine was the icing on the cake.

Nice experience through history thanks to very good guides.
