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.

Great way to compliment our stay at beautiful Santorini! Angelo, our tour guide and Sommelier, was very knowledgeable, funny, and made our Tour special. All three wineries visited were unique and provided us different angles of what Santorini brings to the industry. Thank You!!! (Rosalia, Wil, Adriana and Joel)
