I enjoyed this wonderful tour when I visited Santorini at the end of October. The meeting point to for the minibus pick-up was easy enough to find and just a few minutes walk from my hotel. Our guide was very good! Before our first winery, we stopped to learn how the grapes grow on the island (round basket versus traditional vines as you may find in the United States). Next we stopped at three wineries. The pours were generous at all three wineries and the the view at the last winery was spectacular! I highly recommend this tour. I traveled alone - and the other six in my group were three honeymooning couples, but I still had a fun time!

September 29, 2022 - It was a great experience if you don’t have any transportation like us and you want a more private exploration of the island. Our tour guide, Jessica, was very lively and informative. She takes photos, too! She can customize your tour too if you want to skip some of what’s on the itinerary and add what you wish to see. Overall, it was a good alternative for me and my friend since we didn’t plan anything for the day.

All three wineries were excellent! I do sort of wish we knew which ones we’d be going to ahead of time, but it all turned out well. Our guide had tons of great info to share and all the wines were delicious!

We had such an amazing time! It was our first day in Santorini and not only did we get a fabulous wine tour, but got a great view of the island!

Loved our tour guide, Yiannis. He was very knowledgeable and so friendly.
