The tour was not long, I expected a bit more, but the person who was in charge was knowledgeable and very friendly- she even took our pictures. The facilities are new, clean and have picture worthy spots. The beer tasting was very good, all of the 6 beers were tasty. I’m not a beer drinker myself, but totally enjoyed the experience. A different person came to our table and explained what ingredients and profiles the beers have. They have a menu that you can order food from (our group did not order any, as our tasting came with some appetizers to pair with the beers) but the plate descriptions sounded yummy. Overall, a great experience.

This was an absolute amazing experience for me and my significant other. Our tour guide was Panagiota and she was by far the absolute BEST tour guide we’ve ever had with all the countries we’ve been to. Her attentiveness to our overall comfort was impeccable. She even offered to take multiple pictures of us throughout the tour as she educated us on the history of Santorini wines and vineyards. I will definitely recommend this company to anyone and specifically Panagiota! She was amazing! Great tour.

Theodore gave us an excellent experience! He was very friendly and knowledgeable, we had so much fun! Absolutely recommend!!

wonderful guide with amazing wine tasting and vineyard tours!
