I am a wine snob, so was a little wary of this sort of thing. But it was excellent- totally loved it and had a lovely time. If you are 'red wine only' sort, then Santorini wines are probably not your jam. But otherwise, I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.

This was a great way to see the island! Even if you’re not a huge fan of white wine, which is the main type on Santorini, you’ll learn so much and maybe walk away with a newfound love of white and orange wines!

It was an enjoyable adventure from start to finish. I’m a bit older than most who do the flying dress photo shoot, but he made me feel just as young as the others.

Absolutely an amazing tour. Our tour guide, Theodore, was extremely knowledgeable and very kind. Must book if you are in Santorini.

An excellent experience with a wonderful, patient photographer.
