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!

The choice of wineries was great, combining views, good wine, and good food. The guide was knowledgable and professional, both about the wine growing and wine making in Santorini. She knew the history of Santorini and its wine making, know all about the wines we tried, and Santorini wine in general.

We had a terrific time on this tour. Yiannis was our guide and was terrific. We stopped first for a look at the plants and he explained how they thrive in the Santorini climate which was very interesting. Then we hit 3 different wineries where we had very healthy pours plus delicious tapas at each stop. The wine was very good, surprisingly so. We ended out tour at Santo Winery where we had an incredible sunset view over the caldera. I would highly recommend doing a small group tour with Yiannis. You won’t regret it.
