    Excellent guide and driver, Apostolos. Visited 3 vineyards in 5 hours. Each served a generous plate of appetizers. The first winery, Hatzidskis, was the best. Stella gave an excellent tour and description of the wines - we tasted 6! Liked most of the wines and bought 3 bottles. From here, it gradually downhill. The next winery was Venetsanas and had a unique and interesting history. The tour was the best. The wine tasting was hurried. We liked the Vin Santo wine the best. The setting was beautiful, overlooking the port. The last and worst was visit was to Anhydrous. Tour very short and not particularly interesting nor did the young woman seem interested in what she was doing. We had three different servers and the information about the wine was limited as they too many tables to serve. No one ever explained how many tastings we would have and as they kept using the same glass, we weren’t sure when we were finished so we just left. Would not recommend this one at all.

This walking tour was so much fun! The host, Aristotle, was very lively and knowledgeable of all the food and history of the island. We tried a lot of different and delicious food and drinks, leaving the tour very satisfied! The tour also took us through a good amount of Fira which was helpful to get a “lay of the land” on the second day of our trip. We would highly recommend this to anyone that loves trying authentic foods and meeting new people!

CNN Our guide Aris was so much fun and gave an awesome tour of the different Greek foods, beers and wines on the island. Not only was the food great, but Aris helped make an environment where you get to meet and know other people on the tour traveling from all over the world. The group sizes were perfect and I would 100% recommend this to anyone visiting Santorini!

I loved this tour with Aristotles! He was so kind and funny and accommodating to my food needs since I was 11 weeks pregnant. He truly enjoys what he does and makes sure everyone feels included in the tour and the conversation. The places we visited and the things we ate were the perfect Greek experience we were looking for :)

Ari was an amazing guide and this is a MUST DO experience! Great food, great drinks, and great conversation. Can’t go wrong. BOOK IT NOW!

Angelo was terrific. He made everything fun and interesting.
