This was a great tour! Our guide was wonderful, and she did a great job of explaining each wine. The 3 wineries were beautiful, and gave great snacks. The cost was maybe just slightly too high for what the tour was, but I would imagine it would cost a lot to go to each winery even if you weren't on a tour. This was a great experience, and we had a lot of fun.

Such a nice tour. Great to be able to try several different wineries and have the transportation covered! Maria was such a lovely host and we had such a nice time with the group. Definitely one of our best memories from Santorini. Would recommend to anyone.

The guide was very knowledgeable and told lots of stories about the island. Santorini is a great place for just relaxing on the beach, but if you want to soak in more than just the sun, this tour is perfect for getting to know the area.

Our tour guide Lily was very knowledgeable, welcoming and made the overall experience great. She made a group of strangers feel at home, laugh and have a good time whilst seeing the sights of Santorini.

We had a wonderful time. The food was excellent and the guide was knowledgeable. It was really convenient having them pick us up at our hotel.
