I wish I could give 10 stars. Nicholas is the guide and business owner. His van is pristine new and very comfortable. He has video screens and prepared videos for us about places we would visit in the van. He had water and drinks for all. He is really knowledgeable, friendly, and excellent English. He was happy to tailor the tour to our needs and followed up with texts to make sure we are having a good vacation and with tips for other places. Also super responsive when setting up the tour. A++++ Oh yeah and the sites were also fantastic

Personally I don’t like wine but I thought I would try this experience to see if I could find a wine I liked unfortunately I did not. However, the lady leading the class was clearly very knowledgable and her slideshow presentation helped me to keep track of which wine we were on and what I was meant to be tasting and smelling.

We loved the tour from the wine to the ice cream. Tour guide very friendly and helpful. The food and wine were amazing. Highly recommend doing this tour while in Athens.

A lovely way to explore the city and learn about their delicacies. Anna was very informative and was a great guide. Thank you.

Had an amazing time. Tati’s knowledge and experience were appreciated. Food and wine were excellent. Highly recommend.
