A beautiful tour through the nemean countryside to one of the most beautiful archeological sites I have ever visited, followed by visits to wonderful vineyards. The tastings were wonderful, the guides informative, the trips through the cellars and production lines a highlight and the food was also some of the best I tasted. Would fully recommend. The guides were wonderful people and we loved the trip. Would take it again.

This wine and history tour exceeded our expectations! Spyros was in contact with us from the moment we booked until the day of our tour. The private tour allowed us to have dedicated attention and learn so much about Greece history and Greek wines. We can’t wait to book another tour on our next trip to Greece!

Good informative tour. We booked on short notice so we unable to schedule any other tastings.
