So much packed into one day (in a great way). The best bit was our tour guide. She was very knowledgeable in showing us around her village (embarrassingly I don’t remember the name), Emporio village, the highest point of the island, red beach and the wine museum. She gave many other interesting facts about the formation of the caldera, local cuisine etc. We also really enjoyed some free time on Perissa beach (the black beach) where we were able to swim and grab some food in a restaurant. A great tour especially if you don’t have loads of time to see the island.
This is a great tour to get to know Santorini! Our guide was knowledgeable and kept us all engaged even though it was extremely hot during that day and we were all affected by the sun. We learned a lot about the history of Santorini, culture and local life, visited many different places - we got to see the most important things in one day. It was extremely hot so make sure to bring a hat and a glass of water. Maybe some snacks as well since lunch is a bit late. A great tour to get to know Santorini in one day.
We visited three wineries, and really enjoyed them all. The wine museum at Koytsoyannopoulos was interesting: lots of history there... the displays equally interesting but had some "interesting" quirks; at the tasting, our sommelier was very knowledgeable. But the highlight for us was Venetsanos -- the view was amazing, we got to know our fellow travellers a little more, and the wines were really nice (we appreciated the food served with them as well, at all the wineries).
We had an exceptional time. Our driver Nikos was prompt and a wealth of information about the wineries and the island. The winery visits were good. The first did a great job showing the local methods of viniculture relevant to Santorinr. We felt the second location had the best descriptions and food pairings. The third had a stunning placating and some delectable wines. Felt it was well worth the cost.
Grigoris was an excellent guide. A very knowledgeable, friendly and professional individual who was ready to go out of his way to keep us happy. Since the tour was private we had the chance to customise the itinerary in any way we liked. Overall this was an excellent tour, well worth its money. I would highly recommend both Grigoris and the tour!
