What people are saying about Megalochori

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.

Nick was an incredible guide, with tons of knowledge about Santorini and Greek history. We went to several great locations for photographs, and he explained the significance of everything we saw. The winery and the monastery were highlights for us, and we left the tour feeling like we had left no stone unturned on this beautiful island. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for cultural insight as much as picturesque locations.

Our guide Nikos was great! All three winery as we went to her very good. The last one, Santos, has amazing views! It was a wonderful time and if we come back to Santorini we will definitely do it again.

Truly catered to our family of 4–my husband and I and our two twenty something daughters; including things that we wanted to see and skipping those that we preferred not to see. natalia was Fantastic!!

This was a great way to see everything on the island in a short time, and Minas was super friendly and knowledgeable!
