I booked this wine tour and cooking class for my husband and I while on our honeymoon. We are from the U.S. and WE LOVED THIS EXPERIENCE! From the moment we were picked up from the moment we were dropped off we were treated very nicely. The wine and food were to die for. We visited the winery named Art Space, which is a small winery local to Santorini and also an art gallery with beautiful art pieces. The guides were so kind and knowledgeable. Great experience! Then we visited Aroma Avlis for the cooking class and lunch. Again, GREAT EXPERIENCE! The chef was so nice and knowledgeable. The food was amazingly fresh and organic. The company was amazing. Seriously well worth the price you pay. 10/10 recommended!

Started on time and at the specified location. Very clear instructions. Transportation was clean and comfortable. The guide was fantastic - knowledgeable, resourceful, kind, genuine, patient, and very personable. He seemed to really know the island, the history, and the wines. He provided a unique local experience. Wineries were also great. Very private and catered experience for the tour group. We enjoyed some wineries more than others but overall we tried a wide selection of wine and were provided a decent amount of food to snack on. We especially liked the white wines from Santos. Highly recommend this experience.

Excellent tour guided by Gainni to 3 very different winery. 1 full of history, 1 home run & intimate & the last modern one with an excellent wine pairing lunch for 2hours. We ended the tour belly full & happy.

Wonderful experience, Yiannis was an excellent host and we would highly recommend him.

Guide, Yanas was excellent. Fun and educational day.
